Q:  What do the fees cover?

A:  We operate on the belief that registration fees should cover the cost to play, with a few exceptions.  (youngest boys/girls’ teams, where we want to make it easier for these programs to grow).  These fees cover:  Insurance, field use, bathrooms/porta-potties, referees, team equipment, league dues/game fees, coach stipends (where applicable), etc.  For a complete list, contact the vice president for your program (boys youth, boys HS, or girls).

We also try hard to keep the cost of uniforms as low as possible, while also trying to buy quality.

 

Q:  Do you offer scholarships?

A:  Generally, only on a very limited basis.  We use funds donated for that specific purpose to be able to provide some assistance.  Parents may contact the vice president for their program (boys youth, boys HS, or girls), to inquire about the possibility of a scholarship and should do so before registering.  Assistance is usually awarded at a maximum of 50% of registration fees, upon a vote of the board. 

 

Q:  Do you offer discounts?

A:  For those families with more than one player registered with Stanwood Lacrosse, we offer discounts—from 10%-30% of the total registration fee for the family (excluding boys K2 or girls 2nd grade players).  If you register more than one family member, then choose the "paybycheck" option, and contact the before payment (you may still pay by debit/credit card later).  

 

Q:  What gear do I need?  Where can I get the gear?

A:  There is a full list on our website, as well as places to find gear.  Stores that offer Lacrosse gear often have full sets of gear designed for beginners, possibly at a discounted price. Play it Again Sports in Marysville is a favorite among many Stanwood Lacrosse families.

 

Q:  What are the rules of the game?  How do I find out more information?

There are a lot of sites on the internet with information.  We have a few pages right on our site.  Look to the left menu, and select the area you wish to explore.

 

Q:  Who do I ask if I have a question?  How can I contact the coaches or board members?

General questions may be directed to the vice president of the respective program by checking out our contact us page or use the general feedback page on our site.  You can also contact any Board member directly.  Coaches' contact information can be found on the individual team pages.

 

Q:  How can I keep up with what is going on? 

A:  Check back on our site often!  Check out our team pages.  Make sure we have the correct information in your online account with us, and make sure that your coach has your contact information.  You may also check our FACEBOOK page, which links off of our site.  Also, talk with other parents, your team manager, or coach.

 

Q:  How to I give feedback, praise or even raise a concern?

A:  Talk with your team manager or coach directly.  You may contact us via our website, or individual board members.  Their links are on the website too.  Come to a board meeting!  The schedule is posted on our site under SCHEDULES/Program Calendar at the top of the website.
