Registration covers field rentals, referees, coaches’ training, field equipment and club administrative costs. Raptor Lacrosse is run by volunteer parents who love this sport. We think you will love it too!
Volunteer Commitment Deposit: Raptor Lacrosse is an ALL volunteer-run organization and functions only through the efforts of our member/parent volunteers. A $400 volunteer deposit is normally required from each family. Due to COVID-19 this may change as we use CDC and County guidelines to shape our volunteer needs/requirements.

Girls: stick, mouth guard, cleats, and protective eye goggles. Approximate cost is $85.00 - $100.00
Boys: helmet (Raptor black w/ decals available @ Sling It Lacrosse), chest pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouth guard, stick, protective cup, and cleats. Approximate cost is $225.00
Where to buy gear: Sling It Lacrosse in Danville has prepared a Raptor starter package. The link is in the registration or you may go to the store. Gear can also be purchased at Dick's Sporting Goods or Sports Basement. Also, resale gear is posted on our website under GEAR SWAP/SHOP/EXCHANGE

Due to the delay in collecting payments and the costs that the club will immediately incur upon official player registration, there will be no refunds this season with the exception of season cancellation due to COVID-19. If our Raptor’s season is cut short or cancelled due to CDC, State, or County restrictions the amount refunded will depend on the length of the season remaining and non-refundable fees incurred by the club.
