THE RC PROGRAM
The RC Lacrosse Club was established in 2004 and since its inception has provided the highest quality coaching and the most advanced playing opportunity in the West. Our family consists of competitive RC HIGH SCHOOL teams at the Grade 9-12 level, an RC SELECT team at the Grade 8 level and RC BLUES teams at the Grade 4-7 levels that play in competitive tournaments during the Summer and Fall/Winter seasons.
The RC Lacrosse Club is the largest West Coast Starz feeder program in the country and our players mostly reside in the San Diego County area. RC alumni have gone on to play NCAA lacrosse at Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Notre Dame, Duke, Cornell, Dartmouth, UPenn, Yale, Denver, UNC, Syracuse, Colgate, Bucknell, Vermont, Penn State, Towson, Army, Navy and Tufts. See the College Commitments page in the left menu for a more complete list and follow RC Lacrosse on Instagram and Facebook.
THE RC PLAYER
- Primarily hails from the Greater San Diego Country area, while being cognizant of other program’s needs, and limitation of geography on practice participation.
- Shows an aptitude for high-level lacrosse.
- Is interested in receiving and responding to direct, advanced coaching and feedback.
- Shows a love for the game.
- Is interested in growing as a young man, not just winning.

RC Select is made up of teams at the High School and Grade 8 age levels. The mission of RC Select is to develop premier lacrosse players and teams to compete at the highest levels of the game and to prepare our boys to play lacrosse at the college level. The coaches, players and support staff at this level are focused on growing our student athletes through the principals of hard work, fundamentals, athleticism, commitment, teamwork and sportsmanship. Since 2004 RC has placed more players with NCAA and MCLA programs than any other regional club in the West.
RC Blues is a competitive Youth club program built on the long standing legacy of RC Lacrosse. RC Blues focuses on the Grade 4-7 levels, with the goal of developing young men capable of moving on to bigger challenges, whether that is the goal of playing Division 1 lacrosse, or simply becoming a more well rounded member of our community.
RC Blues is a San Diego County based program that organizes grade level teams (see below) capable of competing at the highest-level club tournaments. To provide consistency of coaching, the ability to learn at a more detailed level, and the ability to develop bonds with teammates, the RC Blues season is a 10 month program from October through July. This allows us to enter local and Western elite tournaments from Fall through Summer, while allowing each player time to complete in their local Spring community season.
ATTENDANCE, PLAYING TIME & BEHAVIOR POLICIES
- All RC Lacrosse Club practices & events are mandatory & the coaches expect advanced communication if a conflict arises. Unexcused absences will lead to dismissal from the program.
- Playing time is NOT guaranteed at any level but the coaches will do their best to ensure that players all get on the field as much as possible.
- RC expects players and parents to always show good sportsmanship and to be good club representatives where ever they go.

Parents, please watch games from the side of the field opposite the players and always set a good example for our boys. We expect you to be respectful towards players, coaches, officials and other parents at all times. Unsportsmanlike parent behavior may lead to player removal from the club. If you have a problem please contact your coach or the club administration at an appropriate time.
