Frequently Asked Questions

 
Spring Lacrosse Questions
 
When should I register for spring lacrosse?
Registration for the spring lacrosse season is now open! Click on the Register Online tab on the vertical menu to begin.
 
How much does registration cost?
The cost of registration varies by age group and includes a uniform or pinnie (Scoopers Program). Players must also have a current US Lacrosse membership in order to register. The cost of a membership is as follows (as of 8/1/2013): Youth (under age 15 but not in high school) = $25, High School = $35. The US Lacrosse membership is a one year membership, so it should cover more than one season. Please 
 
Scholarships are available. Please see the Financial Assistance page in the About Us-Contact Us section of the top menu.
 
There are traveling teams and may be other opportunities for players to participate in tournaments outside of Edmond. Costs associated with tournament registration fees, travel, etc. may be additional.
 
Why do I need to become a member of US Lacrosse?
The membership funds insurance and continuing education programs for players, coaches, and officials. A portion of the membership cost also goes to support our Local Chapter that funds training for our coaches, referees, etc.
 
Where are games played? Where are practices held?
Most games during the spring lacrosse season will be played at Cheyenne Middle School, on the corner of Covell and Kelly in Edmond. Some games will be played at other locations. These will be announced at the start of the season.
 
Most practices will be held at Cheyenne Middle School as well, however, there will be some teams that practice at other locations.
 
What team will my child play on and who will be the coach?
Teams will be divided once registration is nearly complete. At that point, coaches will be assigned. For additional information, see our Contact Information page.
 
I might be interested in coaching, but I have never played or coached lacrosse before. How can I help out?
Given that lacrosse is really just starting here in Oklahoma, most of our coaches had zero experience with the sport before they started. ELC provides coaches training and will work to pair new coaches with more experienced coaches who can get them started. We would love to have you!

Weather Questions
 
The weather today is or is expected to be horrible. How do I know if my son/daughter still has lacrosse?
In the event of severe weather (severe heat, snow, thunderstorms with lightening, etc), practices and games may be cancelled or postponed. We will make every effort to let ELC families know of any changes as quickly as possible. Any cancellations or other schedule changes will be communicated through the LeagueAthletics email system. You can also opt to receive notifications via text message. We will also post changes to the ELC Facebook page.
 
I just saw lightening and my son/daughter is at lacrosse. What happens?
Our ELC coaches and referees will make the call to leave the field in inclement weather. At practices, coaches are urged to use common sense to provide a safe environment for their players. ELC follows the recommendations from the NWS, the NATA, and the NFHS – all athletes and fans will remain in shelter for 30 minutes past the time the last strike of lightening was observed.
