St. Francis Fall Program Options
Greetings Players and Parents,
We're really excited to get you all back on-campus and back together for the Fall. This Fall we are looking forward to 3 different options. You'll see the conditioning option as a mandatory school activity, but on top of that we have 2 more options that are strongly recommended to all players. As a reminder, these additional options are there because we need our players playing against the toughest competition TOGETHER under the same staff and with our team. That is the way we can gel, build and grow as a team so when we face our mission league schedule in the Spring we are fully prepared.
For new families, due to CIF rules, we are not allowed to compete under the St. Francis name. Ronin, our club team is what we do in the Fall, Winter and Summer to stay sharp, stay with our teammates and build our game.
On-Campus at St. Francis. The administration is going to allow us to run conditioning starting September 15. We will maintain social distancing rules as well as those that the school has set forth for us. There will be 4 practices a week Monday and Tuesday 8pm to 10pm, Thursday and Friday from 6am to 7am. As a bonus, special events will be held on Halloween (Costumed practice), during Thanksgiving break (Alumni Game) and in early December (Ugly Sweater Game) Covid permitting.
Players will need to go through the school's medical screening policy before stepping onto the field.
We will be competing in the Los Angeles Elite Box Lacrosse League. This is by far the best league in all of Los Angeles. With teams like Westlake, Loyola and PV as part of the league, we will be facing tough competition each week. This league is well placed to build our team for the future. Games will be held on Saturdays and Sundays at Sierra Canyon. There will be an opening day scrimmage on August 29.
The Box price is inclusive of the conditioning.
We are focused on getting the boys to two high quality tournaments. With the hope that COVID abates and allows us more freedoms we have selected the Black Jack Classic and Sandstorm to attend. The Black Jack Classic (Dec. 5/6) is an Adrenaline run recruiting tournament, held in Henderson, Nevada. Sandstorm (Jan. 16/17) is one of the biggest tournaments in the country, held in Indio, California. While both of these tournaments will require us to stay overnight, we felt that they are the most likely to occur AND they are drive-able events.
The Tournament price below, reflects conditioning AND box lacrosse included in the pricing.
If you have a financial issue, please reach out to Coach Bowers. The Ronin Program is partnered with a non-profit, Creator Sports California, that can sometimes provide assistance for sporting events.
Note: If you would like to pay by check or cash (and not pay LeagueApp Fees) please go through the registration process and do not complete payment. Then contact Coach Bowers for additional instruction. It is important that all players go through LeagueApps as it allows the coaching staff to better communicate with parents and players.

Due to the nature of COVID practice days, box games and tournaments are subject to change but will be communicated. We will be sure to find suitable alternatives for the team, should the need to reschedule arise.
Our refund policy is once a program has started refunds are not given. Should extenuating circumstances arise we are happy to work with you based on those circumstances.
