Spring Lacrosse 2021 - General Wait-List

General wait-list to keep track of any players who are not currently registered, but would like to play this Spring if possible.  There is always a small chance that we will be able to add more teams, but to do so, we would need an accurate account of enough players at a certain grade level to ask the league(s) if it'd be possible.  Therefore, signing up for this list (and getting others to do so as well) is your best chance at being able to play.  It will also act as the priority list if there are any droppout positions that need to be filled.

Base Cost: $0.00
