Fort Collins Unified Lacrosse Vipers

  Building Young Men with Character

 

Fort Collins Unified is the Boys Lacrosse program which represents all four High Schools in the Poudre School District. PSD, however, does not fund lacrosse. Unlike many of the other districts in our state, PSD considers lacrosse a “club sport.” Our players and families must provide their own funding for the boys to play, compete, and develop their skills in lacrosse at every level. This is very costly for all of us.


What do we pay for?

 

  1. We pay PSD for the use of their buses and drivers to get to our games
  2. We pay for coach training and certification
  3. We pay our coaches an unfortunately small salary for the many hours they give to our boys
  4. We purchase balls, goals, other field equipment for practice and games
  5. We pay for practice and game uniforms
  6. We pay referees to officiate our home games
  7. We pay for meals for players for away games

                                                                                                                       

As we approach the upcoming 2015 spring season, we expect our individual player fees to exceed $650 to cover these costs for our program. Please keep in mind that a lacrosse player is responsible for purchasing his own personal equipment. To purchase and keep this equipment maintained over the course of four years will cost from $600 (initial investment) to $2000 (replacing cleats, mouth guards, torn pads, broken shafts/heads).

 

In the 20 years since the Vipers began, our players have experienced success on and off the field. Through player development, character building and a foundation of strong values, we’ve seen more than 60 of our players move on to play lacrosse at the collegiate level.  Fifteen of our players have become All American athletes and five former players have received Military Academy Appointments. Today, many former players have returned to the Vipers Youth program as coaches.

 

We don’t want the increasing fees of this sport to cause us to lose players, and we don’t want kids to lose the many opportunities that playing a sport can provide for them.  We need your help to keep our sport thriving in Fort Collins!


Our Goals for the Spring 2015 Season:

 

1) To lower the cost to each player by $100

2) To provide scholarship funds for boys who need assistance

3) To provide updated and much needed new equipment for the teams

4) To provide funds which would allow for travel and increase the competitiveness of our program
