Richmond Strikers Boys Lacrosse Spring 2019

Uniforms: Our previous uniforms are no longer being produced by Nike. In continuing our push forward we will be using traditional lacrosse uniforms. Our goal as a club is to use these uniforms for up to 4 Seasons (2 Fall seasons, and 2 Spring seasons) or a two-year cycle. With this the upfront cost broken up over that period will bring our cost of uniforms down to less then what we have paid previously per season.  Uniforms will need to be paid for during registration. The cost will be $95 for our boy’s lacrosse kit.

(Example is: $95 for two (2) Jerseys and one pair of shorts over two years will be $47.50 per year and $23.75 per season)

We plan on pre-ordering these and basing the numbers by age groups, so as the boys move up we will have less chance of duplicate numbers. We will ask for number requests once registration closes and will ask for 3 requests. We will do my best to accommodate the boys.  With this cycle, if a player needs just one piece due to loss or out growing their uniform we will be able to order single pieces or entire kits. Pre-ordering will also ensure that our uniforms are delivered prior to our first games.

The kit for the next two years will consist of:

  1. White Nike Jersey with Strikers on front with number and number on back.

  2. Black Nike Jersey with Strikers on front with number and number on back.

  3. Grey Nike Shorts with our boys lacrosse Strikers Logo on right leg.

 

*Sizes are available in both jerseys and shorts from youth small to adult xxl.

Practice Uniform- The boys can use the previous years jersey for practice and we will have orange practice jerseys for the boys to use so the game jerseys last longer. We will ask that both jerseys be brought to all games.  This same system is utilized in many other youth sports at these ages.

Practices – Practices will be on either Monday and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays.

*Team practice schedules with times and locations will be posted soon!

Games- Games will be on Saturdays in the Richmond area (Henrico, Hanover, Chesterfield, Powhatan)

*Game schedules will be posted for each team after the regional scheduling meeting takes place in early 2019.

*Select Team will have games during the week at different locations, schools, and times.

Helmets- The boys can continue to use the helmet of their choice. Our select team will need a white helmet and a few options will be added to our team store during registration if a new helmet is needed.

Equipment- All players registered for the spring 2019 season will need to have the required equipment.

(Helmet, Gloves, Shoulder Pads, Arm Guards, Mouth Guard, Cleats, Athletic Cup, and Stick)

Spirit Wear – We will continue to open up team shops a few times during the year with BSN offering t-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hats, etc.. These orders will take place online and take 4-6 weeks to receive after our shop closes.  Our spring shop will close in mid-February.

*Each age group will have a developmental team that will consist of players who wish to continue playing past the end of our local recreational league season. These teams will have 7-8 extra practices and play in two local tournaments. One in Midlothian on June 8 to June 9, 2019 and one in Williamsburg on June 15, 2019. The additional cost covers tournament fees, practices and stipend for coaches.

*Select team cost covers, 20-25 practices, 10 games, ESP training sessions, 2 tournaments (1 on June 8 and June 9, 2019 in Midlothian, VA, 1 on June 1 and June 2, 2019 at University of Virginia) coaches stipend for head and assistant, administration fees and select team game shorts.
