LEAGUE RESIDENCE RULES
A player must play for the team that is affiliated with their school team. If there is not a school team, then the player must play for the school or club team that is closest to their home and within their school district.
Girls from Newport, Sammamish, and Interlake High Schools (or girls who will be going to one of those schools) are eligible and all girls living within those school attendance areas are allowed to join if their home school does not have a program.

BELLEVUE SCHOOL DISTRICT AFFILIATION
At this time, girl’s lacrosse is a club sport that serves high school girls who reside within the attendance boundary of Newport, Interlake, and Sammamish High Schools. Our program does not receive funding from any of these high schools or the Bellevue School District. Instead, the program is funded entirely by players, parents, and sponsors.
Bellevue School District boundaries can be located here: http://www.bsd405.org/wp-content/pdf/boundaries/High%20Boundary%20Map.pdf
BELLEVUE SCHOOL DISTRICT SANCTIONED SPORT
Our girl’s lacrosse program is affiliated with and recognized by the Bellevue School District as an official sport. Varsity athletes are awarded letters from their respective high schools.
High school athletes must complete a physical and sports eligibility packet for their home high school. NSI student athletes must adhere to Bellevue School District policy 2151 which covers topics related to school attendance; minimum grade point average; and conduct issues such as alcohol, drug, and tobacco use. Additionally, NSI student athletes must complying with all WIAA and King County Conference rules and regulations in order to participate (just like all other WIAA and King County Conference-sanctioned sports).
BELLEVUE SCHOOL DISTRICT ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION FEES
We do not receive funding from the Bellevue School District but do receive support with field time and scheduling for practices and games along with staffing and trainers for games. Therefore, NSI Lacrosse High School players ARE REQUIRED to pay any of the following fees in addition to NSI registration fees:
Athletic Participation Fee.
PHYSICAL AND SPORTS ELIGIBILITY PACKETS
Because of our affiliation with BSD, all high school players must complete the Sports Eligibility Packet, which the player can get from her home high school. The packet includes the requirement for a physical from a family doctor. The deadline for turning in Sports Eligibility Packets is in February. NSI Lacrosse highly recommends that players complete the physical and paperwork and turn the packet in early. We will not allow players to take the field for High School Assessments without this completed paperwork.
