Athletics schedules will be posted here as available.
Lassen County Elementary Athletic League
Richmond is a member of the Lassen County Elementary Athletic League (LCEAL). Other members include Herlong/Fort Sage, Westwood, Shaffer, Johnstonville, Susanville, and Janesville. For team sports an effort is made to schedule one home game and one away game during each season. On occasion other teams from the surrounding area are invited for competitions.
The philosophy at Richmond is “play to win within the context of allowing each team member a maximum amount of game time.”
One team for grades K – 8 is sponsored. Students practice at Richmond, but Cross Country meets are held at Susan Hills Ranch Park behind Meadow View School.
Basketball…One seventh grade team and one eighth grade team is sponsored for boys and girls. The girls’ season begins in mid October and ends the Friday before Winter break. The boys’ season begins the week after winter break and ends the first week in March. Five home games, five away games, and two league
tournaments are usually scheduled for both boys and girls.
One seventh grade team and one eighth grade team is sponsored for girls. The season generally runs March 15 through May 1. Students generally participate in five home matches and five away matches and one tournament.
An effort is made to attend three track meets during April and May. Students in grades sixth through eight are invited to participate. Some practices may be held at Lassen High School.
Drill Team is a yearlong commitment. Some years the emphasis is on cheerleading and some years the emphasis is on dance. This is dependent on the interest of the girls and the advisor.
They will perform at boys’ basketball games. They do not perform during the girls’ basketball season. The squad may also perform at the Grizzliette Show and other exhibitions during the year.
