Raptor Lacrosse Club Financial Aid Guidelines & Application


Objective:  Raptor Lacrosse Club (known as RLC) provides interested and motivated youth the opportunity to play lacrosse at the level that fits their skill and ability. RLC strives to keep lacrosse affordable, so all youth have an opportunity to participate. As such, the RLC financial aid program is intended to provide opportunities for financially disadvantaged youth players to participate in RLC programs.

Privacy: All financial aid applications and financial documentation information provided will be kept CONFIDENTIAL. For the privacy of our applicants, all documentation provided will be destroyed or returned (upon request) after the RLC financial aid committee approves or denies the request for financial aid.



 — Financial need must be demonstrated for consideration. Economic hardship will be the only factor in awarding financial aid. No one will be disqualified from consideration because of sex, race, color, creed or religious beliefs.

 — While we try to address as much of the need as possible, financial aid amounts will be based on the number of players demonstrating need, the extent of that need and the budget available for financial aid that year.

 — Financial aid awards will be reviewed on a yearly basis.


Criteria and Eligibility:

 To be considered you must:

 1. Complete and submit the application for Financial Aid.

2. Supply a copy of the last three pay stubs for each working parent (or proof of unemployment, EDD or Disability).

3. Include any additional documentation demonstrating financial need.



Applications received after the published deadline or are not filled out completely will not be considered. Applications must be filled out by the adult requesting financial aid and may not be filled out by coaches, team managers, children or friends. RLC will destroy all submitted financial information unless the applicant requests the information be returned. Any unpaid club fees from prior seasons will result in an applicant being ineligible for financial aid in the future.


  Raptor Lacrosse Club Financial Aid Guidelines & Application



Application of Financial aid

Financial aid is applied only to program fees and registration. Financial aid does not cover US Lacrosse membership, equipment/uniform costs, travel expenses (including transportation, lodging, and meals), or other expenses agreed upon or incurred by the team or by the individual player during the course of the program’s season. Additionally, financial aid does not cover programs outside of the regular playing season such as camps, tournaments or Learn to Lax events.


Volunteer Time: Financial Aid recipients can have their $400 volunteer deposit waived, but recipients must perform ten (10) hours of volunteer duties benefiting RLC, which may include but are not limited to games, camps, or other club events. If the financial aid recipient fails to meet the volunteer obligation, the volunteer deposit will be charged to your account.


Time Commitment and Participation:

Financial aid recipients must make reasonable efforts to attend all scheduled practices and games. Recipients must also actively participate in all team duties and activities.


Terms of the RLC Financial aid Policy: After Financial aid is awarded, the remaining balance of player registration and other applicable fees are to be paid in full per the regular payment schedule. All payments are due by December 15th. Failure to maintain good financial standing with RLC will result in a player being ineligible to participate in the player’s registered program. The RLC financial aid committee meets as needed to process applications. RLC reserves the right to discontinue financial aid at any time, if the information provided is inaccurate. Note: Financial aid is a partial award of RLC fees; parents must continue to pay a portion of the fees based on the amount of financial aid awarded.
