About Harvest

FAQs

General

What type of staff will be at Harvest events?

Our coaches are skilled in their ability to present material in a way that players can remember, retain and practice what they have learned. We are fortunate to have an outstanding group of like-minded coaches. Our athletes can rely on them for instruction, guidance, and support. They balance hard work, fun, and discipline, while providing a positive and trusting environment.

What level of player attends Harvest events?

We teach players that are picking up the stick for the first time to those who play in college. By using our educational progression, we are able to cater to the needs of each individual participant. Beginners, intermediate and advanced players receive instruction that is appropriate for their skill level. Our heavy focus on fundamentals allows for us to appeal to all ages and skill levels.

Are Harvest events geared for specific positions or all positions?

We make sure to provide each position the attention it deserves. Each position has its own specific coach teaching them throughout an event.

Will there be special training for goalies?

Absolutely! Goalie training is integrated in the Harvest curriculum throughout the duration of our events. We have goalie specific coaches that coach our goalies at all of our events.

My child does not fall within the exact age range. Can they participate?

Our age groups are designed to maximize the development and safety of our participants. Contact us in advance with your request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Our events will remain open until the registration page no longer allows you to select the event. We will also post a "sold out" notice on the event page.


Club Teams

Are we required to purchase the custom helmet?

No. Our helmet will be all white and we will place an order for custom helmet wraps or decals every year.

How do we order custom apparel or equipment?

Ordering details for customized apparel and equipment will be sent out via email to each team throughout the year.

Can my son play on an older team?

Under special circumstances, a player of a younger class may be asked to participate in an older age group. This situation will be initiated by the club team director.

What does my son need to bring to tryouts?

Please bring your full equipment, cleats and athletic shoes. Reversible pinnies will be provided and returned at the end of each tryout.

Does every player get equal playing time?

All efforts will be made to provide equal playing time during tournaments. Coaches will monitor playing time across all of their games, and do their best to ensure players get equal time. 

How much does the Harvest membership cost?

For questions about the membership dues, visit the membership fees and information page.

Does Harvest provide additional training opportunities for club players?

We strongly believe in the benefits of year-round training that focuses on improving individual skills, while building chemistry between teammates. Additional club training offerings will be communicated once the teams have been finalized.

Camps & Clinics

What is the weather cancellation policy?

For outdoor events, if there is a high chance of thunderstorm preceding the event, we will cancel the event by 5pm the day before and reschedule. Participants will be notified via email and a notification will be posted on our website. Once an outdoor event has begun, we will play through the rain. In the case of thunder or lightning, we will vacate the field until it is safe to return.

What time should I arrive to an event?

Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start time (30 minutes on the first day for check-in) so you have time to gear up and are ready to go on time.

What is Harvest's cancelation policy?

The following cancellation policy of Harvest Lacrosse applies to all camps and clinics. Any communication regarding player absence or cancellation must be received in the form of a written email to info@harvestlacrosse.com.

In the event that a player is unable to attend a camp/clinic, a full credit will be issued if a notice written via email is received within 7 days of the start of the camp/clinic. If the player’s absence is communicated in writing via email within less than 7 days before the start of the camp/clinic, regardless of the reason, a credit will be issued for 50% of the total amount paid.

A cancellation made in writing via email within 3 days before a camp/clinic will result in a full forfeiture of funds paid and no credit will be issued. Harvest credits are to be used by the player within one year from the date issued. Credits are transferable to another immediate family member if the player who was issued the credit is unable to attend a future event. Camp/clinic refunds cannot be applied to club team membership fees. Neither refunds nor credits will be offered after the start of the camp or for players who arrive late or leave early. Phone calls or text messages are not accepted as notices of absence or withdrawal from a camp/clinic. Harvest will not provide cash refunds for any camps or clinics.

What do I bring to an event?

It is the responsibility of each player to come to camp with appropriate gear and equipment (sticks, gloves, pads, mouth guard and helmet). Each player is required to wear his helmet at all times during drills, practices, scrimmages and games. It is up to each participant to bring a packed lunch. Lunch will NOT be provided by the camp unless specified otherwise. Make sure to bring enough water, as hydration is taken very seriously at our camps.

What is a typical day like?

Regardless of the type of the event, we use individual, small group, large group, and team dynamics to provide maximum instruction perspectives and opportunities. Harvest core values will be taught at every event.

Are there any event rules?

We do not tolerate the use of drugs or alcohol. We also do not allow physical abuse or property damage. There is a zero-tolerance policy in place for bullying at any Harvest sanctioned event. Lastly, we do not allow any players to leave the camp or clinic. Breaking any of these rules warrants an immediate dismissal from camp without a refund.


 

Training

What is the recommended group size for Small Group Training?

Our recommendation is to form a group of 3-5 players (similar age/skill level) for a better chance of securing a group time slot.

Looking to join a Small Group Training Session?

If you are unable to form a group on your own, then we would ask for you to send us your son's full availability based on the schedule posted, then we will do our best to find a group for him to join.
