HOW TO REGISTER:

Please have your player's clothing sizes and graduation year ready prior to starting the registration process. You can calculate your player's graduation year by going to: https://graduationyearcalculator.com/

The registration system currently registers based on age using Sept 1st as the age cutoff date. For those players whose age and grade do not match due to skipping a grade or delaying a year, the registration system will require you to register in the division that is age appropriate. Once you’ve completed registration, please email info@jrgreyhoundlax.com prior to the deadline if you would prefer your child be moved to the appropriate division based on the player's grade.

If you are forced to register your player for U9 due to your player's age and you would like them moved down to K/1, please select that you will pay by check. Once your registration is complete, email us at info@jrgreyhoundlax.com so we can transfer your player to K/1 and provide you the opportunity to pay the remaining balance via credit card or check. If you do not do this, you may be charged a 4% processing fee.

To Register a Player – Once you have registered for an account on this system and are logged-in, Add a participant if your player is not already in the system. If your player has played in our program before, and you don't have him/her listed as a participant, you may be logged into the wrong account. For each participant, it will show you the available programs. Select the desired program and follow the instructions. Please reach out to us at info@jrgreyhoundlax.com  for help.

Pope Jr Greyhound Lacrosse prioritizes roster spots for players that live in/attend a Pope HS feeder school.  Out of district players MAY be accepted into the REC program, but the decision is evaluated on a season-by-season basis dependent on available roster spots. Please Note: This only applies to the REC program.
