St. Francis Fall and Winter 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. 


We will start our conditioning and stick-work on Monday September 13.  We will have weightroom on Monday and Tuesday mornings from 6am to 730am.  Wednesdays are reserved for box and we will practice on Friday after school as well.  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.


Box Lacrosse

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 Sierra Canyon 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.  Additional practices will be held for box players on Wednesday evenings.  

A full box league with practices this Fall!  Players receive a porthole jersey and shorts along with 7 weeks of box games, and 9 practices for the league.  Practices are on Wednesday nights. Varsity games are played on Saturdays and JV games are on Sundays. We have also added a box tournament (the cali cup) on 10/30-10/31

Practices: 8/30, 9/1, 9/8, 9/15, 9/22, 10/6, 10/13, 10/20, 10/27 (practices are subject to change)

The price below reflects a discount for the St. Francis AND includes the conditioning above.

The Ronin program is running in 4 tournaments this Winter as well. Based on talent, boys will play in 3 of the below 4 tournaments.

If you can't do box

For players that can't make box, but want to play in the Tournaments, we do have a discounted option for our boys.


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.
