Practices
Practice times and days are subject to change to accommodate coach's and team's schedules.  It is difficult for us to create a "practice schedule" for the entire season because the games are not all scheduled on the same days of the week.  The schedule may differ from one week to the next.  The practice schedule below should be accurate for the first part of the season.  Once the games begin, practices will be scheduled by the coaches in between games when necessary and games and practices may be on any day of the week.

 
  • High School Boys - Monday through Friday from 5:00 - 7:00 pm, beginning on Monday, February 21st
  • Middle School\Youth Boys - Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, from 5:00 - 7:00 pm, beginning on Monday, February 21st.  First practice on Sunday, February 20th at 1:00 p.m. 
  • High School Girls - practice schedule to be determined.
  • Middle School Girls - Practices will be 3 days per week, to be determined.
Game schedules are being finalized and will be distributed when final.  Check the Master Schedule to see what games have already been scheduled.



Games
All boys teams will have a minimum of 10 game scheduled, and girls teams will have a minimum of 8 games scheduled for the season.  Games will be played against other area school and club teams, either at our home field or at the opponent's field.  Travel to away games is the responsibility of each player and is not provided or coordinated by the Club.  Game times and days of the week will vary due to availability of fields and opponents. 

 


Fields
Warriors Lacrosse Club works with Henrico County Parks and Recreation to obtain field assignments for our programs.  Official field assignments will not be finalized until mid-February, however, we anticipate using the same fields as prior years.  Fields for the 2010 season were:
     Practices --- Holladay Elementary School and VA Randolph Field
     Games ----  VA Randolph Field

Directions to these fields, as well as game sites for all Away games, are available on the Fields page.

Uniforms
All players will receive game shorts, practice jerseys, helmet decals, and a practice t-shirt, all of which is theirs to keep.  The game jerseys (and skirts for girls) are property of the Club and must be returned at the end of the season.  Participants that do not return their game jersey at the end of the season will be billed a replacement cost of $50.00 and will not be eligible to participate in any future Warriors Lacrosse program until jersey or replacement cost are received by the Club.



Equipment
Lacrosse sticks and equipment are NOT provided by the Club and are the responsibility of each individual player.  The following equipment is mandatory for boys lacrosse and must be worn at all times during play:  helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, arm/elbow pads, and mouthguard.  Girls must wear goggles or eye-mask.  Mouthguards will be provided to players that need them.  Cleats, such as football or soccer cleats, are strongly recommended.  The Club will provide goalie equipment including chest protector, throat protector, and goalie stick, to all players that are interested in playing goalie.

The Club will be offering a helmet program to purchase or rent new helmets at a discounted price.  Go to the Equipment page for more information.



Playing Time
All players will receive significant playing time throughout the season, however, this is not a "pay-for-participation" type program.  On our middle school teams, all players will participate in every game, but playing time is not always split evenly.  Playing time is earned based on effort and attitude during practices.  Some players will likely receive more playing time than others on the team.  Game situations and level of opponent may play a role in determining playing time. 
The varsity team is a little different in that it is run much like a school varsity sport.  All players will get playing time throughout the season, but there is the possibility that all players may not play in every game.
