Welcome to the home of the
Grand Rapids Amateur Lacrosse Association
CONGRATULATIONS GRAND RAPIDS LACROSSE COMMUNITY!
Grand Rapids Lacrosse has entered into a contract with ISD 318 to make Lacrosse a Minnesota High School League Sport. The agreement, which has support from the 2017 V and JV level families, requires that we be self funded and file proof with the school by November 1st that we have the $34,000 that they are requiring. Because of this we are required to start a Booster Club that will be charged with raising money for the program. Please consider stepping up and being a part of the success of this great program. The initial organizational meeting will be Monday, July 18th, 5:30 PM at the GR Public Library. For questions please call Kathy at 218.244.4422 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The GRALA Board will be concentrating on collecting V and JV registration fees starting immediately as they can be used toward the required $34,000. To do this we are offering 2 payment options and we very much appreciate your cooperation with this process.
Plan #1: Submit a one time payment of $440 by August 1st.
Plan #2: Submit one envelope with 4 post dated checks each for $110. The dates of the checks should be: July 20th, August 1st, September 1st and October 1st.
++++Also, we are also asking that you register your child for Lacrosse and pay the $110 activities fee by August 15th. The reason for this is that fall sports get the majority of the activities fees because they are first in line to register. If a family maximum is met, the spring activities like Lacrosse get little or none of the activity fee. Registering early for Lacrosse puts us in the front of the line to receive the $110 Activity Fee.
+ Once the season starts, if your child decides not to play Lacrosse you will receive a full refund of the money you have paid to GRALA and can apply for a refund of the Activity Fee from ISD 318 using their standard form.
PAYMENTS can be dropped off at the GRAND RAPIDS HS Activities Office M-F from 8 - 3:30.
OR send it to GRALA, PO Box 5173 Grand Rapids MN 55744 by August 1st.
