Player Expectations

Expectations and Commitment

Participating in MetroLacrosse promises to be both demanding and exciting. We believe that you can do great things both on and off of the field and as a result we will have high expectations for you and your teammates. While it is fun to be a great lacrosse player, it is more important to be a great person. With that in mind, we require that each participant in MetroLacrosse demonstrate R.E.S.P.E.C.T. in all areas of involvement. Your coaches and the staff of MetroLacrosse will help you focus on this throughout the season. At every MetroLacrosse practice, game or function, we require that you come prepared and ready to apply yourself to the task at hand. We insist that you respect the authority of coaches and work to create a healthy environment in which you and your teammates have every opportunity to strive for excellence.

  • Attendance Policy
    Players are expected to attend every practice and game. Failure to attend and/or communicate about missed practices or games may result in a loss privilege to play in games or removal from the program. In the Youth Program, a player will be dismissed from the team after three absences. In the Junior Program, a player will be dismissed from the team after four absences.
  • Behavioral Policy
    As always, MetroLacrosse expects that all of its participants display R.E.S.P.E.C.T. (Responsibility, Effort, Sportsmanship, Participation, Enthusiasm, Communication, and Teamwork) at all times. Failure to do so may result in suspension or removal from the program. Most behavioral issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis. However, players can expect immediate dismissal from the team for any action that puts the personal safety of others in danger.
  • Fees and Forms
    There is no fee to participate in MetroLacrosse’s Spring Programs. All equipment including sticks, helmets, goggles, balls, pads and uniforms will be provided to each participant at no cost. In return, MetroLacrosse asks that each participant practice and abide by the values of RESPECT both on and off the field.
