Registration - Registration for the season will open (tbd) and cost $475 (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 2021 season, a new or previously submitted Physical Exam Form is only valid if based on a physical completed after 6/1/19. A player does not need to submit a new form if a valid one is already on file. A player whose last physical was before 6/1/19 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.
