Who We Are
The Riptide (San Francisco Lacrosse Club) was formed as result of the merger of two established non-profit programs – the Outlaws (San Francisco City Lacrosse) and the Quakes (San Francisco Youth Lacrosse Club). These organizations had been serving the San Francisco youth lacrosse community since 2003. The boards of both former organizations met in 2010 and decided it was in the best interest of the players and the development of the sport to combine into a single quality program that served the entire lacrosse community of the city of San Francisco. On October 1, 2010, we became the San Francisco Lacrosse Club, Inc. which, for the past 13 years, has served as San Francisco's only community-based, non-profit youth lacrosse program.
