Equipment Issue for SYC Lacrosse Programs
Renting SYC Equipment for Non-SYC Programs (Starting Summer 2019)
Handling individual equipment issues for players that fail to attend the club’s scheduled equipment sessions creates the most work for our volunteers. Accordingly, the Lacrosse Committee has been forced to create incentives in the form of late fees and “holds” to encourage players to pick up or return gear on time. We hope that these steps will enable the Committee and our other volunteers to focus more time and energy on programs that directly enhance player development, rather than spending precious volunteer time on equipment issues.
Players that have rented or borrowed gear for fall-winter programs must attend to get game shorts and update paperwork (or return gear if they are not playing this spring) ~ those failing to attend will be assessed a $25 late fee.
To keep equipment from getting too musty, families should clean it once every 2-3 weeks of use. Prior to returning it to SYC Lacrosse, all equipment MUST be cleaned as set forth below:
Shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves and goalie pads: Machine wash, cold water, on the delicate cycle, and then drip dry for at least 48 hours or tumble dry on low heat. Do not store equipment in bags when not is use – LET IT BREATHE!
Helmets: Completely remove any tape or stickers that were placed on the helmet after it was issued, and wipe clean inside and out with a wet cloth and mild detergent.
NOTE: Players that fail to clean equipment or the uniform before returning it must pay a $25 cleaning fee.
