2019 Starpoint Modified Lacrosse FAQs

This year, PABA will for the first time be offering a "modified" level club lacrosse program for 7th and 8th grade students. Here are the details:

Q: What is the Starpoint Modified Lacrosse Program?
A:This is a "club" level lacrosse team created for the students at Starpoint who desire to play competitive lacrosse for their school.  This program is not funded or overseen by the Starpoint Central School District, but instead is provided and administered by the Pendleton Athletic Booster Association (PABA). 

Q. Who can register?
A: The program is currently open to all Starpoint students currently in 7th and 8th grade.  Depending on interest, registration may be expanded to students in 6th and 9th grade as well.

Q: When is registration?

A: Online registration begins Wednesday, February 6, 2019.  All registrations must be completed online through this website.
Thereafter, on February 20, 2019  at 6:30 p.m. we will have a live registration / organizational meeting at  Pendleton Town Hall.  Your player must attend this meeting to be sized for their uniform.
 
Q: When does the season start?
Practices are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 5th, with games expected to begin in early April. Games are currently being scheduled by our club lacrosse league, and we should have more information on exact dates in the near future.
 
Q: Why is registration held so early?
A: We hold registration early so we can promote our lacrosse programs through the schools. It also gives us an opportunity to order the equipment, uniforms and supplies we need before practices begin in March.
 
Q: Where do you hold your practices?
A: In inclement weather, practices will be held in various Starpoint gymnasiums.  As the weather improves, practices will be held on the fields East of Fricano Primary School.
 
Q: When are practices held?
A: Practices are set to begin Tuesday, March 5th. Although this may be subject to change, we are currently scheduled to practice from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, at least until the weather improves and practices may move outside. Further practice days may be added or changed at the coach's discretion. 

Q: Where do you play your games?
A: Home games will be played on the same fields we practice on at Starpoint, while away games are played against other area school club teams in Erie and Niagara Counties.
 
Q: When are games played?
A: Games are currently being scheduled by our club lacrosse league, and we should have more information on exact dates in the near future.
 
Q: How much does it cost to participate?
A: The registration fee is $150 for each player.  This fee includes a Spartans Lacrosse uniform, insurance, and covers field maintenance and fees charged by the league and referees.  Parents will be responsible to purchase protective equipment, provide transportation and any other extraneous costs. We are currently planning some fundraisers will help pay for any other team needs.
 
Q: What should I bring with me for the live registration / organizational meeting?
A: All parents should bring the player or players registering for lacrosse so they can be sized for their uniforms, as well as cash or a check for payment of registration fees if you have chosen not to pay by credit card online during the registration process.
 
Q: What equipment will I have to buy?
A: The league requires each player to wear gloves, an NOCSEA regulation lacrosse helmet, arm pads, shoulder pads, a mouth guard, and a protective cup. Each player will need a lacrosse stick, and you’ll also probably want to purchase some lacrosse balls to practice at home.
 
If you child wants to play goalie, PABA will provide a throat guard, chest protector and goalie stick that will be shared by all players who play the position
