Registration is closed or has reached capacity, what happens now?
Once registration closes or has reached capacity, interested participants are encouraged to register on our waitlist or contact the registrar directly at LTRClaxregistrar@gmail.com to be placed on the waitlist. There is NO fee to be placed on the waitlist.
Waitlisted participants will be removed from the waitlist in the event that a registered participant cancels OR if the ability to field an additional team presents. (i.e. we have the space, numbers, and coaches). Waitlisted participants will be contacted directly by the Registrar who will coordinate registration and payment of the registration fee. Waitlisted participants come off the waitlist on a first come first serve basis.
Please do NOT contact age group coordinators or coaches to be added to rosters once registration closes or has reached capacity. Lutherville Lacrosse follows a strict waitlist procedure to ensure fairness to all interested participants.
Why do participants have to submit a copy of their Birth Certificate?
As part of Lutherville Lacrosse's efforts to improve the experience and ensure safety for all of our players, our organization has implemented an age verification requirement for all players registered in our 3/4 division and 5/6 division. Once received families will not be required to provide this information for the duration the player is involved in our program.
Proof of age, either a passport or valid birth certificate may be emailed to LTRClaxRegistrar@gmail.com or sent by mail (please email the registrar for details).
Registrations will NOT be considered complete until your player's proof of age is provided. Failure to provide verification will result in forfeiture of your participant’s spot and no refund will be honored.
“PLAYING UP” and “PLAYING DOWN” POLICY
Lutherville Lacrosse does not promote players to play out of their designated age group. Any request to do so must have an exceptional circumstance that justifies a request to the commissioner and approval by the Board. Requests will be handled on a case by case basis. This is NOT a parental decision, but a Board decision.
USA Lacrosse Position Statement:
“Due to the increased potential for injury and lack of evidence supporting any benefit in the long-term development of a youth level player, USA Lacrosse strongly discourages allowing children below 8th grade to “play-up”.
Can my child request to play on the same team as their friends, or can I request teammates to facilitate car pooling? Can I request a coach that my child had previously?
Lutherville Lacrosse has nearly 1,000 participants in our growing lacrosse program. Our goal is to have fun, teach participants the game of lacrosse, inspire love of the game and to establish teams that are as close to equal in skill level as possible. As a result, we cannot accept requests to be with particular players, and/or coaches. Of course, a parent who coaches will have their own child on the team, and siblings who qualify to play in the same age group will be placed together (unless specifically requested otherwise).
