What is the mission of the Rush-Henrietta Girls Lacrosse Club (RHGLC)?     [back to top]


The mission of the Rush-Henrietta Girls Lacrosse Club is to promote the game of lacrosse within the Rush-Henrietta School District. The club will emphasize sportsmanship, fitness, achievement, teamwork, and skill development. The club will demand a high degree of ethical conduct by its coaches, players, volunteers, and parents. The objectives of the club, as an organized lacrosse program, are to:

  • Provide a safe and healthy environment to play lacrosse.
  • Promote good sportsmanship, team play, positive attitude, and respect for all players, parents, coaches, and officials.
  • Encourage parental/guardian involvement.
  • Develop a strong work ethic where a best effort is given to classroom academics as well as on the lacrosse field.
  • Provide participants with qualified, knowledgeable, and motivated adult leadership.

Players will be evaluated based on skill level, dedication, and willingness to learn, and assigned to a team based on this assessment. The club will be made available to all Rush-Henrietta youth interested in the game of lacrosse and in advancing their skills. For girls who reside outside of the Rush-Henrietta School District, please see “Who can register for the RHGLC” below.

How does the RHGLC organize its teams?     [back to top]

In order to reach the goals that have been set, we will attempt to provide every girl wanting to participate the opportunity to play. We want the program and the sport to grow in R-H and believe in providing opportunities for R-H girls to play lacrosse year round.

Due to roster restrictions and league rules, there will be occasions where we will not be able to include all players on a team participating in a league or tournament. Players will be determined by grade/age, skill level, position, work ethic and attitude, and overall commitment to RH Lacrosse. It is important for players to remember that every time they have a lacrosse stick in their hands, be it a game, practice, or instructional program, they may be auditioning for a future spot on a club team and/or league. When the number of players wanting to participate on a club team and/or league is over what can be supported, the club shall help the involved parents in the formation of a second team. All girls are therefore invited to attend all practices, whether or not they are currently placed on a team roster. 

When does the 2013-2014 season begin?     [back to top]

2013-2014 registered players will meet for their first practice at the Rush-Henrietta Ninth Grade Academy (NGA) on Monday, August 12th from 6:15-7:45pm. On Wednesday, August 14th, 6-15-7:45pm at the NGA, players will undergo skills evaluations to help the coaching staff determine team placements.  If a player is not available on August 14th, skills evaluations will be held at the discretion of the coaching staff.

What is a typical practice schedule for a RHGLC member?     [back to top]

RHGLC teams typically practice outdoors twice a week at the NGA from mid-August to late October. Practices may be on weekday evenings 6:15-7:45 pm and/or Sundays 11:30-1:00 pm. Indoor practice is typically scheduled at least once a week on weekday evenings in school district facilities from November-March as space permits. Depending on availability of space within private training facilities, additional training opportunities may be scheduled throughout the winter months. Outdoor practice resumes by early April one to two times a week through mid-July.  

Who can register for the RHGLC?     [back to top]

At this time, registration is open to all girls in grades 3-8 that reside within the Rush-Henrietta School District. If roster space permits and parental request is made, the RHGLC board may vote to allow a player that resides outside of the Rush-Henrietta School District to register. 

What is included in the RHGLC 2013-2014 registration fee?     [back to top]

The cost to participate in the club is $150, and will include a uniform (pinnie/shorts), practices, scrimmages, and coaching instruction from August 2013 through July 2014. Pinnies and shorts will be provided for returning club players in need of a replacement piece. Hooded sweatshirts and dri-fit shooting shirts with the RHGLC logo are available for purchase online until August 1st for an additional fee. Uniforms are generously provided by one of our sponsors, Grizzly Graphics Outfitters, Inc.  

Aside from registration and equipment , what other costs might I expect throughout the year?     [back to top]

Tournaments, Indoor League Play, and Spring RALL season have additional expenses associated with those activities. Those chosen for a tournament team are typically offered the opportunity to participate in several (4-5) weekend day tournaments during mid-September to late October season and an additional 4-5 weekend day tournaments from May-July. Additionally, players may be provided the chance to play in a local indoor weekend lacrosse league during the winter months. During the spring season, club players in grades 3-6 are encouraged to enroll in the Rochester Area Lacrosse League (RALL) program made available currently through the Town of Henrietta and coached by RHGLC coaching staff. This April-June league typically meets Monday and Friday evenings at the NGA for practice and involves Saturday games from late April-early June. 

Do I have to become a member of US Lacrosse?     [back to top]

In order to participate in the club, you must also be a member of US Lacrosse, which is an additional fee of $25. This membership provides insurance for your child for the upcoming year during practices, scrimmages, indoor league play, and tournaments. If you haven't already joined, you will be prompted to do so when registering on our website. If you prefer, you can also go to www.uslacrosse.org and click Join Now.

What type of equipment will I be expected to purchase for my RHGLC player?     [back to top]

Club players will need a COLORED (not white) mouth guard, goggles, cleats and a girl’s lacrosse stick. Turf shoes (or sneakers) are sometimes necessary for use at indoor/outdoor turf fields. Before considering a new stick purchase for your up and coming lacrosse player, it is strongly suggested that you talk with our RHGLC coaching staff for the most affordable and practical recommendations.  

When will online registration CLOSE for the 2013-2014 lacrosse season?     [back to top]

Online registration will be open from Wednesday, July 17-Thursday, August 1, 2013. After August 1, interested individuals need to contact Tina Schillinger for further information. 

What do I do if I’ve forgotten my password or need to change my contact information? 
Please go to the left side menu bar and choose the task bar labeled EDIT MY ACCOUNT.

What if my daughter plays additional sports?     [back to top]

Members of this club are encouraged to participate in multiple sports. Studies have indicated that developing overall conditioning, balance, and coordination through multiple sports ultimately makes a far better athlete than only using your body in one way

Aside from school district teams, will my daughter be expected to commit to playing lacrosse exclusively with RHGLC?     [back to top]

Members of the club who are rostered on a club team are asked to commit to making attendance at club practices and games a priority. Club players are permitted to participate with other competitive lacrosse teams as desired.
