Transportation is not provided for the summer program.

How do I register for the summer program?

Registration for the summer program is completed online.  A registration button will be added to the home page of this website when registration opens.  You will first set up a password-protected family account.  You will then be able to register multiple children in a family under one account.  This site will maintain a history of your registrations from year to year.

If my child played last year do I have to set up a new account?

No.  The registration site maintains a record of your account.  Your username is typically your email address.  If you forget your password, it can be reset at the login screen.

What methods of payment are accepted?

You can pay securely on the registration site with a Visa or MasterCard.  Payment is also accepted by check.  Instructions on check payment are included on the checkout screen.  We strongly discourage handing a check to a coach at practice or games.

My child has health insurance, do I still have to join US Lacrosse?

Yes.  US Lacrosse provides Basic Accident insurance and Catastrophic Accident insurance.  These policies protect the individual member if he or she is injured during a covered lacrosse activity, and cover most of the out-of-pocket medical, dental and hospital expenses resulting from the injury.

US Lacrosse also provides liability coverage for EALA.
