RHINO LACROSSE offering a clinic in Tucson

The Oro Valley Lacrosse Club will host RHINO LACROSSE (rhinolacrosse.com) to put on a clinic, Friday, January 6th, 2017 in Oro Valley, Arizona!

The Arizona Chapter of US Lacrosse has been working with a representative of Rhino Lacrosse to host clinics on the weekend of 6-8 January in Phoenix & Tucson.  The OVLC has offered to host Rhino Lacrosse in Tucson the Friday before the Oro Valley Holiday Classic Tournament.  Details are in the works and will be announced as soon as we get further information.

Rhino Lacrosse is an organization that many will be familiar with based on their camp they put on in Flagstaff, Arizona.  Ryan Powell, the founder, is a vetted Syracuse player, coach, and MLL star.  There is a potential for Ryan to attend the event down at Tucson.

From the Rhino Lacrosse website:

Rhino Lacrosse ranks among the premiere lacrosse training and instructional programs in North America, and our love for the game shows in everything we do. Our performance training courses, all-star select travel teams, clinics, lessons, tournaments, year-round leagues, and summer academies offer boys and girls of all ages and playing abilities the opportunity to receive the finest quality lacrosse experience.

#Giving Tuesday - Please consider donating

The Oro Valley Lacrosse Club is dedicated to the growth of lacrosse and creating exciting environments for youth to master athleticism and sportsmanship.  Our club is run by a volunteer board of members dedicated to this mission.  While our program fees work to cover the daily expenses of the club and its activities, your child's long term growth in the club thrives on donations and sponsorship of the club.  The club is run as a 501c3 non-profit organization.  Please consider a donation during the upcoming #GivingTuesday (29 Nov 16) campaign that has become popular throughout the nation.

 

Giving to the club comes in many ways:

 

  1. PARTICIPATE in our raffle of three sets of 4 tickets to AZ Zipline Adventures.  Raffle tickets are $20 each and give you and the family an opportunity to go on an adventure, just up the road in Oracle, Arizona.  See our news article @ www.orovalleylacrosse.org or see a board member or coach.  SELL tickets to family and friends for not only a better chance to win, but help the club raise funds to continue the success of the club.

 

  1. NOMINATE a business to sponsor the club.  We offer benefits of sponsorship at all donation amounts.  Business sponsorship not only enhances the community relationship, but benefits our membership.  Email for further details.

 

  1. VOLUNTEER!  Our board works full time to volunteer and would love the help.  Small, one-time events, such as helping prepare the field to more full time events such as team mom/dad are rewarding and exciting to see what makes our club run.

 

  1. DONATE to youth sports, through our club.  Our club has adopted the US Lacrosse athletic development model (LADM), which has been instituted by the US Olympic team to develop well-rounded athletes as they grow.  Our coaches are certified by US Lacrosse and their philosophies are planted in sportsmanship, athleticism, and having fun playing “the fastest game on two feet”.  Our club continues to look to grow by supporting girl’s lacrosse, the only club to sponsor and field a team for youth girls in Tucson.  We aspire to continue this involvement for children – from Kindergarten to High School.

 

With these opportunities, our club can provide top notch opportunities for the club and community.  We are working to upgrade goalie gear for all levels, offer scholarships to team members to attend clinics and camps throughout the season, hire a trainer for tournaments and jamborees, bring the experience of flexibility and conditioning coaches on board, develop full scholarships for those that cannot afford the costs, and maintain great training gear for practices.

REGISTRATION STILL OPEN - FAQs

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT ORO VALLEY LACROSSE REGISTRATION

This website allows us to easily verify a US lacrosse membership & make sure that your child and the club is protected throughout the season by requiring you to input your child's membership number early in the registration and automatically verifying that it is current throughout the entire season (4/30/2017).  If it expires before, the website will automatically transfer you to USL and guide you through the process of renewing your child's membership so the expiration is beyond the season.  This is a change and may lead to questions, we understand.  We are here to help you through the process and appreciate your participation in helping us all take care of this necessary step to have a safe and fun season.  Some benefits, good techniques, and answers to questions are below.

For those that have a US lacrosse membership:

1) Please ensure you put a valid USL number in the registration and make your child's name exactly as it appears on your USL membership.  (if you need to change your account information, or lookup your child's number, please visit uslacrosse.org before you register your child)

     a) A great way to avoid redirecting you away from our website during registration, is to get your USL membership renewed and current before you start registration

     b) US lacrosse membership is additive to your previous expiration date; e.g. if your child's expiration is in January of next year, by renewing you will have an expiration of the next year in January.

For those that do not have a US lacrosse membership:

1) Please ensure the information you enter in our registration is accurate, so that your USL membership will be accurate as well.  The club's interest in maintaining a US lacrosse membership is that it affords a limited liability insurance for potential problems during the season.  There are many benefits beyond this that we know your chlld and you will enjoy as well.

     a)There will be a place, during your US lacrosse membership signup to associate yourself with our club, the "Oro Valley Lacrosse Club"

Your child's BIRTH DATE is important during registration.  Please note the new US lacrosse age cutoffs for each program.  If you enter the wrong birth date during registration & get an error, please email us at .  Only the website administrator can adjust the birth date once input.  If you're concerned about what program your child should be in, please contact us so that we can help you through the process.

Early Bird Registration through the beginning of practice is available for Boy's 14U-10U programs.  There are payment plans available (the same as last year) & credit card processing is also available.  Please register your boy for these programs EARLY to receive the benefits.

For those that made a summer equipment deposit, please contact us for a code you enter to receive the deposit back.

Contact information is very important under this new website.  You will have the opportunity to be alerted of schedule changes via many means of communication & you will be offered opportunities to subscribe to automatic "feeds" that help you stay up-to-date with the club's happenings throughout the season.

1)  You can add several emails in the email entry, but adding a comma or semi-colon.  Move your mouse over the email box and let it sit to tell you how to do this.  This is great for parents that have multiple emails they want to register.

2)  You should be able to enter multiple parent/guardian information & it's highly encouraged to do so!

3)  You'll see a drop down box next to each contact information entry that allows you to make the information you enter: public (all registered families can see your information), private (only the OVLC board & coaches can see your information), or roster (the team you sign up for can see your information only).  It's all up to you on what you'd like to share, but rest assured you can still be notified by the club of events and changes regardless on what option you pick.

We have adjusted our registration prices.  Take note, US lacrosse has also adjusted their membership rate.  During the previous season, we were able to provide a positive experience for you and your child, but this was not without the generous sponsorship & donations of members & the local community.  We brought in just over $4000 in donations last year that kept us solvent as a club.  Without the donations & sponsorship, we would not have been able to have the season we did.  In order to continue the daily operation of the club, we adjusted our registration prices slightly.  This will not cover the costs of the club & we have plans for another awesome donation season to keep the registration costs as low as possible.

1)  Please consider donating your time (by volunteering) or money to the club during the registration process.

2)  In order to start the new year right, we are offering a raffle for a new outdoor zipline experience at a company just north of Oro Valley.  Details will follow, but the opportunity to reserve raffle tickets during registration is available.
