Raptor Lacrosse Mission, History and Philosophy
Raptor Lacrosse Club (RLC) is a youth lacrosse club dedicated to bringing the sport of lacrosse to the residents of San Ramon and Dublin. Our objective is for our players, parents and coaches to develop a true and lasting love and passion for the game.
Raptors is a non-profit, 501(c) youth sports organization, started in 2010 by a small group of parents & a high school coach, who played NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse. They envisioned growing the game in our communities, and from an initial season of 5 teams, with girls and boys squads, the Club has grown to 13 teams serving over 250 players, from preschool through middle school.
Our goal is to provide a team structure that allows coaches to coach, kids to play and parents to support team logistics. Volunteering is a KEY component of the Club’s success. A volunteer staff of coaches, along with parent participation, is required to ensure the athletes have the best possible experience. A strong partnership between coaches and parents allow every child to learn skills in a positive environment while having fun.
RLC Philosophy is to Honor the Game by:
- Building strong character through commitment and competitiveness
- Promoting good sportsmanship
- Encouraging academic and athletic excellence
- Having fun
