Check out the new Fundraising tab at FriscoFury.com. The spring initiatives to raise money for the Girls Lacrosse Club of Frisco are listed there.
Please contact GLCOF board member and fundraising lead, Chad Morris, for questions about any of these fundraising efforts. Chad may be reached at email@example.com and 214-284-0998.
Each Frisco Fury player is asked to raise $127 over the course of the season using the crowdfunding campaign.
Why $127 per player? Read the explainer sheet shared at the spring parent meeting. If each girl registered for the spring season raises $127, collectively GLCOF will reach our $15,000 goal. It’s amazing what we could accomplish together in just a couple of months!
With 66 days left in the campaign, we are at 7% of our $15,000 total goal for Frisco Fury.
Congrats, 60 of you have made your accounts live! But if you have not personalized your daughter’s page and shared it through and email or social media post, then you have a few more steps to make it a success. Please remember this is an active campaign and frequent posts will help you reach the $127 goal.

Frisco Fury players, coaches, parents, spectators and all involved with the Girls Lacrosse Club of Frisco are expected to respect each other and the officials who referee your daughter’s games.
Parents electronically signed a Code of Conduct at the time you registered your daughter for spring. These pages are very important and outline the expected behavior from players and parents/guardians. Please take time to review the Code of Conduct and the entire GLCOF Player/Parent Handbook with your daughter if you have not already. The Athlete Code of Conduct is on page 5. The Parent Code of Conduct is on page 17.
You must be logged into your account on FriscoFury.com to view the GLCOF Handook online. The file is located under the HOME tab under DOCUMENTS then under the General GLCOF Documents folder.
In the event of an incident that causes a dispute or conflict, please refer to page 10 of the GLCOF Handbook to read the process for grievance / dispute resolution. If the dispute requires Board intervention, please contact the board parent liaison, Dan Schroer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents filled out a medical waiver when you registered your daughter. While we have it on file, parents of players who have any serious medical concerns should personally speak to your daughter’s coaches about it. We would much rather over-communicate regarding the health and well-being of our players.
The GLCOF program cannot be successful without volunteer help. Please consider the options below and share your time and talent with the Frisco Fury. Additional volunteer opportunities will be sent throughout the season.
We need more photos of our players livin' and lovin' laxin' with their teammates across all age-levels. Please consider being the ‘team photographer’ for your daughter’s team. 7/8 and high school volunteers are also welcome to help with this task. ‘Document’ your Frisco Fury experience! Select images may be used on the website, in emails and on social media. Please contact, Darcy Schroer at email@example.com, to submit photos.
