OC Rebels is a lacrosse club run by and for Orange County lacrosse players. We love the game of lacrosse and want to share it with everyone, because we know how much fun it can be. We work on all levels of player development and have a variety of programs designed to build fundamentals, teamwork and a love of the game.
We strive to make our players better both on and off the field. While we are committed to teaching the fundamentals of the game, all of our programs also focus on teaching values. We pride ourselves on our focus on accountability, humility, teamwork, family values, winning with class and accepting defeat with honor.
Our coaches know how much this game has done for them, and the OC Rebels are committed to bringing these same opportunities to future generations throughout our community.
We miss you! We miss lacrosse! We know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from us so we wanted to take a moment to check in and let you know the status of OC Rebels. First things first - we hope everyone is staying healthy as we continue to navigate the realities of living during a pandemic. As teachers and coaches, we’ve heard dozens of stories from our players and families struggling with everything from new routines to job loss and sickness. The OC Rebels coaching staff and families are all healthy, but everyone is anxious to find a way back on the field. With all that in mind, we wanted to share our tentative plans for the next several months.
Hopefully you’ve been following our coaches on our Instagram page (@ocrebelslax) as they try to bring some content and challenges for our players to work on at home. We’ve been fortunate enough to keep several coaches on board - though like all of us - they’d rather be on the field!
Unfortunately, as of now, our Summer plans have been mostly scrapped. Fields in Orange County are not permitting field use of any sort and our last guidance suggested we won’t be able to rent a field until at least the end of June, perhaps later. As a result, we will not be running any formal leagues this summer. In the event that we are able to secure a field, and are allowed to hold an event based on guidance from the state & OCHCA, we would like to run a “welcome back to lax” clinic - as an opportunity for our players to come out and train with coaches, take shots on cages, and conduct drills in whatever limited capacity we are able. More on that when we have more information.
Additionally, we have been working with our facilities as well as local health agencies to make sure that when we do return to the field, we will be following up to date distance and safety protocols. We are currently working on a return to play protocol to ensure that when we get on the field, we will be doing so safely, responsibly, and with the safety of your sons and daughters in mind.
Typically, we begin our fall ball programs in late August, and they run through October. We’re holding out hope that we will be able to run some of these programs, however be prepared for our programs to look different than they have in the past - smaller groups, different practice formats etc. We’re trying to think outside the box and come up with ways to get our players back on the field. We’re continuing to brainstorm the possibilities for fall and summer lacrosse, but at this point can’t make any firm plans or commitments due to the fluid nature of the pandemic response.
Thanks for your time - we miss you and hope to see you out on the field again sooner rather than later!
