REGISTRATION: The 2021 Boys & Girls Spring Lacrosse Season registration is open for the Spirits and Scoops age groups until March 15th, 2021. The Hereford Rec Lacrosse Board is confident that a spring season will happen, and children will have an opportunity to practice and play lacrosse. Registration fees will not be collected at the time of registration. Instead, a charge will be posted to your family account on our website once we have the go ahead from Baltimore County Rec & Parks.
COST: Hereford Rec Lacrosse is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Registration fees cover the fixed costs associated with running our programs: equipment, field rentals, insurance, league & referee fees, and administrative expenses. $75 for Scoops & Spirit age groups. $150 for all other age groups. The registration fee DOES NOT cover uniforms and possible end-of-season events or tournament play. Credits owed to returning players for last spring's cancelled season will be applied to their account balance when the upcoming season fee charge is posted to family accounts on our website.
