1. I understand that the MVHS Men's Lacrosse program is 100% self-funded and receives no financial assistance from MVHS or SRVUSD, with the exception of the Head Varsity Coach and the Head JV Coach stipends. The anticipated player donation is $400, but may change slightly based upon our final approved budget. The donation is to be paid to MVHS - Men's Lacrosse via the Monte Vista Webstore or by check.

2. I understand that MVHS will not refund a player donation for any reason after the final roster has been set. If I am unable to make a donation to the program, I understand that I may confidentially apply to MVHS Athletic Dept. for assistance (Player at Large Program) by contacting Reema Popli at rpopli@srvusd.net or 925-552-2881.

1. I understand that the following equipment is required to be worn/used by each player: helmet, mouthguard, protective chest/shoulder pads, lacrosse stick (including shaft and head), elbow pads, gloves, and cleats. lf you are unable to obtain the required equipment items by the first day of tryouts, please let us know by emailing montevistalacrosse@gmail.com.

2. I understand that an important part of MVHS Men's Lacrosse is that all players agree to abide by our team uniform rules. Our team colors are white, black, and red. I understand that cleats, pads, and gloves must be in accordance with the team color guidelines and may only be predominantly white, black, or red. Our team helmet is a white Cascade with a chrome grill and black chin guard. Helmets are available at Sling It! Lacrosse in Danville or may be purchased online through other retailers.

I understand that in order to comply with CIF rules, players will not be allowed to play on any other lacrosse team (club teams, travel teams or tournament teams, etc.) during the season of play (2/6/17 through 5/20/17). I understand that failure to abide by this rule can put my eligibility and the team's eligibility in jeopardy.

4. I understand that any issues resulting from my behavior because of my disregard of this agreement, MVHS or SRVUSD policies will result in disciplinary action. This action can include suspension from the program, extra conditioning, loss of play time and/or being dismissed from the program.

I understand that in accordance with MVHS and SRVUSD rules and regulations, players must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 or above. I understand that any player with a GPA determined to be below a 2.0 will be suspended from the team until their GPA returns to a minimum of 2.0.

4. I will leave coaching to the coaches. Per league rules, spectators and/or family members are not allowed in the team bench area before or during the game. Parent volunteers are not allowed in the team bench area during the course of the game. I understand that Monte Vista Men's Lacrosse is a very competitive high school sports program and, therefore, playing time is not a topic of discussion for parents as that determination is made solely by the coaching staff. Players who have questions about playing may speak directly with their respective coaches. If there is a need for further discussion, parents may arrange a meeting with the coach(es). lf the issue is still unresolved, then the parent(s) should contact the Athletic Director on how to address the issue in question.

5. I will leave officiating to the game officials. Even if I disagree with a call made by the officials, l will respect their decision and refrain from yelling at the referees during or after the game. I acknowledge that the referees are not professionals and will treat them with respect.
