LAUNCHING SWARM INITIATIVE FUND FOR 2023 & BEYOND!

                                                            

Current operating budget has been between $40-$60,000 with goal of covering all expenses including Coach/Admin Stipend ($1000/per), tournament fees, field rentals, equipment, uniforms, shooter shirts given to each participant yearly, and goals/nets/balls, as well as scholarship spots for any in need and yearly contributions to both the boys High School program at Glenwood Springs HS and the girls program at Carbondale RFHS.  RFLC has always taken into account family financial challenges and our fees have remained the lowest of lacrosse programs on the Western Slope. In an effort to keep our program all-inclusive we are looking to a new development program.

As always we want to thank all of our individual supporters & families, as well as our corporate donors: DolMar Development, ValleyOrtho @ Valley View, Bank of Colorado, Sopris Liquor & Wine, Umbrella Roofing, ANB Bank, Holy Cross Energy, Performance Electronics, Olde Towne Moving & Storage, MR. VAC, Glenwood Insurance Agency, Shawn O'Connor Photography and Academy Mortgage!
