It takes significant time, energy and funding to support the Hillsborough Lacrosse program and to make the season as enjoyable as possible for your child. The program registration fee does not cover the costs to run the program. The primary source of operating income is derived through sales at the concession stand during our tournaments as well as the sales of Hillsborough Lacrosse apparel.
As such, each player's Parents will be required to volunteer their time during our home tournaments / games. This approach will equally distribute the responsibility to all members of the organization for raising funds to support the program.
By registering your child with the Hillsborough Youth Lacrosse program:
HYL will provide your child with the following equipment: Helmet (grades 1-6), Chest/Shoulder Pads, Uniforms. In addition, the program provides the fields, officials, and all league/tournament fees.
You will need to provide: Helmet, (grades 7 & 8), Legal Lacrosse Stick, Gloves, Arm Pads, Cleats, Protective Cup, Mouthguard, and membership with US Lacrosse.
Each Family is required to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours in support of the organization during our tournaments. Your volunteer time must include 2 hours in the concession stand. Other volunteer needs are tournament set-up/clean-up, apparel sales, parking, etc. There are numerous opportunities for Parents to fulfill their workbond obligations. It is also requested that Families split their 4 hour volunteer shifts across the tournament weekends. Board Members, Coaches & Committee Heads are not exempt from this requirement.
Failure to return all loaned or rented equipment by the end of the season or a failure by the Parent to fulfill their workbond obligation will result in forfeiture of the Workbond / Equipment deposit. All Workbond / Equipment deposits will automatically roll over to the next season unless a request for a refund is made prior to the start of the next the season. The opportunity to receive a refund or your Workbond /Equipment deposit will be forfeited if not requested by the 1st day of practice for the next new season.
