Raptor Lacrosse Mission, History and Philosophy

Raptor Lacrosse Club (RLC) is a youth lacrosse club dedicated to bringing the sport of lacrosse to the residents of San Ramon and Dublin. Our objective is for our players, parents and coaches to develop a true and lasting love and passion for the game.

Raptors is a non-profit, 501(c) youth sports organization, started in 2010 by a small group of parents & a high school coach, who played NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse. They envisioned growing the game in our communities, and from an initial season of 5 teams, with girls and boys squads, the Club has grown to 13 teams serving over 250 players, from preschool through middle school.

Our goal is to provide a team structure that allows coaches to coach, kids to play and parents to support team logistics.  Volunteering is a KEY component of the Club’s success.  A volunteer staff of coaches, along with parent participation, is required to ensure the athletes have the best possible experience.  A strong partnership between coaches and parents allow every child to learn skills in a positive environment while having fun.

RLC Philosophy is to Honor the Game by:

  • Building strong character through commitment and competitiveness
  • Promoting good sportsmanship
  • Encouraging academic and athletic excellence
  • Having fun
