US Lacrosse is the national governing body of lacrosse. Warriors Lacrosse mandates that all players and coaches are members of US Lacrosse. There are several reasons for this including:
Insurance - US Lacrosse provides Warriors Lacrosse additional insurance coverage when all of our participants are members
Richmond chapter - a portion of your membership dues go directly to our local chapter. Also, US Lacrosse provides support and funding to local area chapters based on size of membership (number of members). By joining US Lacrosse, you are helping the sport of lacrosse in the Richmond area by growing the size of the membership.
Consistent information - US Lacrosse programs, materials, and training provide a consistent source of information on the sport of lacrosse. Things like "Honor the Game", and the emphasis on good sportsmanship, positive play, and respect for the game are the types of attributes that we want to instill in our players and program. US Lacrosse helps us to promote these messages.
Support the game of lacrosse - The goal of Warriors Lacrosse is to promote and grow the sport of lacrosse. By supporting US Lacrosse, you support the game of lacrosse.
