PALISADES CHARTER LACROSSE
VICTIS HONOR
Coach's note:
At Pali we take our lacrosse program very seriously.  All players must try
out every year - even if they've already played on a Pali Lacrosse team.  
Pali Lacrosse rose from a small group of players in 2004, to become a
serious CIF contender in 2011 with over 100 young athletes involved in the
program.  Palisades Boys Varsity Lacrosse is undefeated in CIF City Section
League, with a record of 38-0. Both Varsity Girls and Boys Programs have
advanced to the US Lacrosse Southern California Tournament for the last
two years.  To preserve our winning tradition and continue to improve our
program, I would ask all participants (parents and players alike) to respect
the following:

  • From February 6 until May 15, Palisades Lacrosse comes before all
    other sports.  No absences due to other "club" sports activities will
    be pardoned.
  • All games and practices should be considered mandatory.  Please try
    to schedule family events around games.  There are about 25 players
    on each team.  Every player is expected to contribute and be there
    for his/her teammates.
  • Make it your responsibility to know the practice/game schedule and
    be at practices 15 minutes prior to start and games 1 hour before
    start time.
  • Check this site on a regular basis for updates and other important
    information.
  • Be safe!  No self-diagnosis of injuries.  If you feel you are hurt, you
    must go to your doctor and get clearance to practice/play or a note
    stating you are unfit to practice from your doctor.
  • Players will receive a grade for playing lacrosse - 90% of that grade
    is attendance.  Please make sure your players are at all practices,
    chalk talks, team building events and games.
