Planning for the 2015 season has already begun. Fall introctory clinics are planned, high school evaluations/tryouts are on the calendar, and we are looking at further expansion. We will have both JV and Varsity at the high school level for boys. We are potentially offering boys down to U9 and girls from U9 to U15. There is even interest in high school girls, so stay tuned.
Our fall introductory clinic dates/times are set. These are for any age, boy or girl, that is interested in trying out lacrosse. We certainly welcome experienced players too. You can register on Sportability in the coming weeks. The clinics are set for Santa Rosa High School on:
- October 4 (Sat.), 10am-12
- October 12 (Sun.), 3pm-5
- October 25 (Sat.), 10am-12
- November 2 (Sun.), 3pm-5
The JV team finished off the regular season avenging their only loss with a 7-6 win over Napa. Making it to the playoffs was a great step for our high school program. The Steelhead battled hard but lost in OT to Elk Grove in the 1st round.
This season the Santa Rosa Lacrosse Club fielded boys teams at JV, U15(2), U13(2) and U11 and girls teams at U13 and U9 for a total of 8 teams. We continued to grow and have been able to accomodate nearly every player that wanted to play this season. We are rebuilding our high school boys program this season with a JV squad and will return to varsity play in 2015.
The SRLC plays in the NCJLA which is the Northern California Junior Lacrosse Association and has been part of the NCJLA since 1995. The SRLC is the first youth lacrosse club in Sonoma County. The club was a 1 team club for most of it's existence with either just a JV or Varsity until 2008.
In 2008 we expanded to include U15 and JV. While both teams had their growing pains, the varsity team took first place in the North division and finished 3rd overall in Northern California. In 2009, the U15 team had a great run toward the end of the season in the playoffs and finished with a 1 goal loss in the Nor Cal championship game for U15B2. In 2010, the varsity team had their best season making it to the State Championship game for the first time and the club added U11 and U13.
In 2013, the club expanded again adding a girls team for the first time. We had boys U11B, U13C and U13B, U15B and Varsity in addition to the U11 girls team. For 2014 we look to have boys lacrosse from U11 up to high school and at least one girls team at U13 with talk of adding U9.
We are truly trying to provide a competitive and rewarding experience for all players in our area as stated in our mission statement. We look forward to seeing the sport of lacrosse continue to grow in Sonoma County, as Casa Grande, Petaluma High School and Rancho Cotate have all gone CIF.
Our high school program will be filled with new enthusiasm as we move back to varsity and will also have JV. We are expecting a lot of freshmen interest and 20 returning players with new players coming in to repopulate our varsity ranks. The first evaluations/tryouts for high school will be Dec. 13th and the second is scheduled for Jan. 10, both at Santa Rosa High School and from 10-1pm.
