Pre-Season Conditioning - Pre-season conditioning, led by Varsity Coach Natalie Harrington, will be held at the Lincoln field on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 3:45 - 5:00 beginning Tuesday, January 29th. This is an optional activity but strongly encouraged for all players hoping to participate on either Varsity or JV teams. The sessions will consist of physical conditioning, speed and agility training, and movement drills (but no lacrosse sticks). Registration is open and the program will consist of 11 sessions (no session Fri, 2/8) and will cost $80, which is separate and in addition to the program registration. (Please see below for financial assistance information.)
Try Lax Day - We will host an after-school session on Wednesday, February 6th for girls to learn about the sport and try lacrosse for the first time. See details on our home page, and register for free now on our Registration page!
Tryouts / Beginner Clinic - Monday & Tuesday, February 25 & 26, 5:30 - 7:30, we will hold tryouts to determine team placement, and a skills clinic for new players. Participation is required for all players.
Season Dates - Our season begins 2/25/19 and ends no later than 5/23/19, the date of the State Finals. With the exception of the Jamboree (see below) and one regular season game, all games and practices are on week nights. We will not have practices during spring break.
Jamboree - Our game schedule will kick off with the annual Jamboree the weekend of March 9/10. JV will play on Saturday and Varsity will play on Sunday.
Registration - Registration for the season will open mid-January and cost $450 (please see below for financial assistance information). In addition, players are required to have a valid US Lacrosse membership, as described below. Registration consists of both the Sports Engine registration for contact info, waivers and payment, and the Lincoln High School FamilyID registration to provide physician and insurance info, medical clearance, etc. These registrations can be completed in any order, but must both be completed before the first day of tryouts. Links to these registrations can be found on our Registration page.
FamilyID - Lincoln Girls Lacrosse uses the Lincoln High School FamilyID sports registration system to collect physician and insurance info, medical clearance, honor code compliance and certain waivers. Players must complete this registration in addition to the program registration before tryouts. A link to this registration can be found on our Registration page.
Physical Exams - Players are required to have a physical exam within two years of the end of each season, with a hard copy Physical Exam Form on file with the Lincoln High School Athletic Office completed by the examining physician and certifying clearance to play sports. The FamilyID registration process describes this requirement, provides links to the required form, and provides an opportunity to share medical conditions arising since the last physical exam. A hard copy of the Physical Exam Form MUST be provided to the LHS Athletic Office. The link to upload the form through FamilyID is optional and can be ignored. For the 2019 season, a new or previously submitted Physical Exam Form is only valid if based on a physical completed after 6/1/17. A player does not need to submit a new form if a valid one is already on file. A player who's last physical was before 6/1/17 must have a new physical exam and submit a new Physical Exam Form.
Concussion Testing - We strongly recommend, but do not require, that all players perform concussion baseline testing before the season. There is at least one online service that allows you to perform the testing at home for a fee - BaselineTesting.com - and there are many locations in Portland where you can have the testing administered for a fee, including OHSU, Providence Health & Services, The Portland Clinic, and Metropolitan Pediatrics.
Practices will be 5:30 - 7:30pm or 7:00 - 9:00pm on alternating weeks, beginning with the earlier time slot the first week of practice, 2/25/19.
Players are required to have a US Lacrosse membership valid through May 31 of each season. Membership costs $35/year (as of 2019). Please join or renew your membership before you register for Lincoln Girls Lacrosse as you will be required to enter a valid membership number during the registration process.
You can check whether or not you're already a member, or the expiration date of your current membership, or join using the JOIN button on the upper right of the page at the following link: US Lacrosse
