Warrior Lacrosse Fees Breakdown
In order to continue to provide a positive experience to our players, fees can vary from season to season based on costs associated with running the club.
We do our best to offer a high quality, reasonably priced uniform. Players will be allowed to keep their uniforms at the end of the season.
The club does own all of it's equipment (goals, balls, field paint liners) which over time needs to be repaired or replaced. The club also owns all the rental equipment (sticks, helmets, chest pads, elbow pads, gloves, goggles) which also from time to time needs to be re-certified (helmet;safety), repaired or replaced.
When the league started in 2011 the game of lacrosse was completely new to the community, and therefore so were the referees. Over time our local referees have made great efforts to become familiar with the game in order to provide a better level of officiating. With better quality officials comes a higher cost per game. These referee fees also increase by age group.
Games and Practices
Each team is guaranteed between 8 and 12 games per season depending on the availability of local competition. In addition, high school teams will have practice 3+ times per week, while youth teams will practice 2-3 times per week.
The Warriors teams try to play in two tournaments each season. The Washington Invitational is composed of select local teams, teams from Chicago and also teams from outside of IL. In addition, an end of the year tournament is hosted for local teams only. Location for the end of the year tournament varies each year. Each tournament requires a fee per team which is covered by Warriors registration fees. Tournament participation is not guaranteed. We do not want to put any Warrior player in an unsafe playing situation.
Field Rental Fees
Starting in 2015, the Warriors have partnered with Kinglsey Jr. High School to allow access to their football field. This space will allow the Warriors a venue with bleachers, lights (for evening games, if necessary), and an overall better playing surface than some of our previously utilized locations. This space does have fees associated with it, which are included in Warriors registration.
