  • Other Seasons:

    Other seasons may require game pinnies and/or shorts. If so, they will be provided by the program (and they will usually be yours to keep).

 

Fundraising:

High school lacrosse in Poudre School District is a "pay to play" sport, meaning that the parents/players pay the full cost of the program. In an effort to reduce the cost of playing lacrosse, the Fort Collins Unified Lacrosse High School Boosters provide a couple of ways of raising funds:

  • Individual fundraising:
    Click here for info on how you can painlessly raise money to pay for your player's registration fees (using King Soopers cards).
  • Group fundraising:
    Click here for info on helping with group fundraising efforts (golf tourney, Margaritaville, etc.).

 

Financial policy:

  • Players with unpaid fees from current season must pay them in full before they are allowed to play in a game.
  • Players with unpaid fees from a previous season will not be allowed to participate in a subsequent season until their outstanding fees are paid.
  • If payment arrangements are needed, please contact the Treasurer (see the "Contact Us" portion of our website).




Scholarships:

We provide a limited number of need-based scholarships (partial or full) each season to support players who otherwise would not have the opportunity to play high school lacrosse. Click here for more info.


Volunteering:

We welcome anyone who is interested in helping support the program. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out in any of the following ways:
