Hi Jeff, I went to the lacrosse page and it didn't mention that cost to register the kids. Is there any way you can find this out and let us interested parents know. Thanks.
Jeffrey Pickette (Editor) September 11, 2012 at 10:22 PM
Hi Heather, Registration fee is $175. There is also a required $25 membership fee to the US LACROSSE ASSOCIATION. But there may be some fundraising to help lower these costs.
