Winter Preseason Update

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

First of all, we hope that everyone had a fantastic holiday season and that you and your loved ones were able to stay healthy and covid free.

We wanted to give you all an update on were we are as a program for our preseason training as of now until the start of the season. With new covid regulations some things have changed:

  • There will be NO LACROSSE ACTIVITES until 1/18.
    • LCPS has put all out of season sports activities on pause until that date. The idea is to try and limit any spread with this surge by pausing out of season training for a couple of weeks.
  • Sessions after 1/18:
    • Lifting: Every Tuesday and Thursday morning 7:15am-8:15am
      • Be sure to bring warm clothes, cleats, and water to go outside and run.
    • Stick Work: Monday 1/24 and Monday 2/7
      • 4:15pm-5:00pm on the Practice Turf
    • Green Day Practice: Wednesdays @ 6:00pm in the Stadium
      • Full equipment. Full Sweats. Bring Water

*Please Note – If school is every canceled there will be no pre-season lacrosse activity that day. If there is any delay in the morning, there will be no lifting that morning.

Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

2022 Spirit Pack Sizes

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

Every year players that make our program purchase spirit pack items. This is an essential part of our program. It allows us to look like a team in everything that we do. It also allows us to practice accountability for our belongings. We pre order our items so that when the team is made, players will receive their gear the next day. After that, we will collect payment via the payment portal (after February 24th).

Usually our packs are around $140.00. Players receive team issued Under Armour clothes/game socks/laundry service (for game uniforms)/decals/mouth pieces and other items. These will function to keep players warm, as practice/game/travel attire, and items that they will wear with pride for all 4 years at Riverside.

Please fill out this Google Form so we can do our best to order the sizes we will need for the spring.

https://forms.gle/FjbYNXdbvizx2zzBA

*P.S. As always, we will also have a team store where players and fan can order extra items, and other gear to represent our program.

Thank you so much. ALL IN!
