The RLA is committed to the ideals of good sportsmanship, citizenship and character in teaching the sport of lacrosse and has adopted a “zero tolerance policy” for conduct, which is inconsistent with these ideals.  The RLA’s Code of Conduct is available on our website (  Each player, coach, parent, guardian and other family member should familiarize themselves with the Code of Conduct prior to participation in the RLA.  Adherence to the RLA Code of Conduct is mandatory for players, coaches and spectators.



We need your help! The RLA is a volunteer organization. The success of our programs depends almost entirely on parent participation, without which we would not be able to operate.  Many volunteer opportunities do not require an in-depth knowledge of the game.  Lax Day, on April 25, 2015, is the highlight of the RLA season.  Preparation for this all-day festival is extensive and requires many volunteers.  Similarly, we need new coaches each year for our clinics and house programs, in particular at the 2nd and 3rd grade levels.  Training is available for those who would like to develop their lacrosse-specific coaching knowledge.  Please indicate your willingness to help with Lax Day or to coach by completing the volunteer section of the online registration form.



Each year, the RLA awards two scholarships, one to a graduating member of each of the RHS boys and girls lacrosse programs. For more information on the RLA scholarship, please visit our website at When you register please consider a contribution to the RLA scholarship. Your contribution will help us to continue this great tradition.
