Vancouver Stealth forward Lewis Ratcliff (in black), pictured making a quick stop against the Toronto Rock in National Lacrosse League action last season, has closed the final chapter of his playing career.
Veteran Vancouver Stealth forward Lewis Ratcliff has retired.
Ratcliff played 14 seasons in the National Lacrosse League for 14 seasons and finishes his career with 1,040 points, including 472 goals, 568 assists, in 212 NLL regular season and playoff games.
"Lewis has accomplished so much in his great career and it has been an absolute pleasure to have him as a member of our organization over the past six seasons," Stealth president and general manager Doug Locker said.
There is no doubt in my mind that Lewis will be a Hall of Famer in the not too distant future."
Ratcliff, 33, joined the Stealth organization in 2010 after spending time with Toronto and Calgary, where he won his first NLL Champion's Cup as a member of the Roughnecks in 2004.
His 46 goals in 2010 with the Stealth led the league and he finished second with 97 points in the regular season.
Ratcliff is in the Stealth record books in numerous categories including top 10 all-time regular season goals (183), assists (220) and points (402), along with being ranked top 10 in all-time playoff goals (17), assists (25), points (42) and games played (nine).
He was voted Champion's Cup MVP in 2010 after scoring five goals and one assist in the finals, helping the Stealth defeat Toronto 15-11 and win their first Champion's Cup.
"Retiring was a tough decision, but the right thing given my increasingly busy schedule as an owner and leader in two companies," said Ratcliff.
Ratcliff is also among the all-time leaders in NLL career playoff points with 81 (32 goals, 49 assists) in 16 games.
The four-time All-Pro was drafted 49th overall by the Roughnecks in the 2001 NLL Entry Draft.
His long list of accomplishments also include being a six-time all-star and winning the 2006 NLL All-Star Game MVP.
Ratcliff is the general manager and director of operations for the Seattle Starz and founder of Monarch Lacrosse.
"In addition to everything he has done on the floor, Lewis has been a guiding force in the development of the Stealth Lacrosse Academy and our Junior Stealth program in Washington State," added Locker.

At the conclusion of the camp, Coach Ratcliff noted that the Seattle camp was one of the best groups of athletes he has ever coached and was impressed with their skill and desire to learn.
Monarch Lacrosse Director of Lacrosse Operations Lewis Ratcliff will be joined by Brett Hickey and Tyler Garrison in Bellingham for a box lacrosse clinic June 14-15 at the Bellingham Sportsplex.
Ratcliff ran numerous clinics in Bellingham as part of the Stealth Lacrosse Academy during his time with the National Lacrosse League's Washington Stealth, and is excited to bring box lacrosse back to the area.
"Both the coaches and athletes in the Bellingham area have seen firsthand how box lacrosse increases a player's stick skills and lacrosse IQ," said Ratcliff.
Vancouver Stealth star and Monarch Director of Lacrosse Operations Lewis Ratcliff will also be in attendance as Novice, Peewee, Bantam and Midget level players look to take their games to the next level.
Ratcliff is no stranger to the Seattle area, having hoisted an NLL Champion's Cup in 2010 as a member of the Washington Stealth. During that time, Ratcliff also worked tirelessly with the lacrosse community as a high school coach and the director of the Stealth Lacrosse Academy. Monarch will bring professional box lacrosse training back to the area July 28-30 at the Woodinville Indoor Soccer Arena for grade school through high school athletes.
"We are very familiar with the booming lacrosse community in Washington State," said Ratcliff.
Joining Ratcliff in Austin will be Stealth defenseman Tyler Garrison and former Cornell midfielder turned pro, Mitch McMichael.
"I am really excited to bring true indoor lacrosse to Austin," said Ratcliff.
IL Indoor writer and analyst Stephen Stamp interviewed Lewis Ratcliff on the Stealth's recent slump and Monarch Lacrosse's launch.
Lewis talks about the desire to provide high quality instruction to regions that don't often see pros visit, and the Monarch ethos of giving back and the pro players who play for the love of the game.
Ratcliff, Monarch Lacrosse's Director of Lacrosse Operations, is one of the most prolific goal scorers in the history of the NLL, currently sitting in sixth place on the league's goal scoring list. Ratcliff's illustrious lacrosse resume features an NLL Championship Game MVP Award, six NLL All-Pro team selections and two NLL Championships. In the field game, Ratcliff played for Ohio State University and professional stints in Major League Lacrosse and the LXM Pro Tour. As a coach, Ratcliff most recently led Washington state's Eastside Catholic High School to its first State Championship Game appearance.
Joining Ratcliff on the Monarch staff are professional lacrosse veterans Ryan Benesch, Chris O'Dougherty and Brett Mydske, along with young stars Tyler Garrison, Robert Church, Mitch McMichael and Brett Hickey.
"Monarch Lacrosse is not just seeking out the best players in the game; these guys are proven as great coaches as well," said Ratcliff.
"The Monarch Lacrosse training program is designed to work for all players regardless of age or experience," said Ratcliff, one of the most prolific scorers in the history of the NLL.

Lewis Ratcliff
Ratcliff, 30, was acquired by the Stealth prior to the 2010 season, and the sharpshooting lefty has since made his mark on the Stealth franchise. In two seasons in Washington, no player in the NLL has recorded more regular season points than Ratcliff, who has 189 points (87g, 102a) in 32 games. In 2011, he was named second team NLL All-Pro for the fourth time in his nine-year career after finishing second in the NLL with 92 points (41g, 51a). He also finished the season ranked third in the league in goals and fourth in assists. He led the Stealth to its second straight Western Division title with 17 playoff points (8g, 9a) in three postseason games.
Ratcliff has become involved in the Puget Sound region's lacrosse community since joining the Stealth. He is the Director of the Stealth Lacrosse Academy, which teaches box lacrosse to local youth, middle and high school players, and the Junior Stealth, a group of travel teams comprised of local youth and high school lacrosse players. His involvement in the local lacrosse community has prompted the Victoria, British Columbia native to move his family to Washington, and has him excited for the upcoming Stealth season.
"I'm incredibly anxious to get the season started," said Ratcliff, who will join his teammates for the start of training camp next week in Langley. "Coming to the Stealth organization has really rejuvenated me. Now I am much more involved with the community and surrounded by people I know. It's more fun to be playing close to my family and having the support of a community when I'm playing. The move to the Stealth has been the best thing for my career."
Entering his tenth NLL season in 2012, Ratcliff has been consistently one of the most dangerous forwards in the league. Seven times he has eclipsed the 70-point mark in a single regular season, amassing 746 career points (344g, 402a) in 143 regular season games. He's also added to his legacy as a big game performer, winning Championship Game MVP honors in the 2010 NLL Championship Game following a five-goal, six-point outing in the Stealth's victory over the Toronto Rock. The 2010 title was the second of Ratcliff's career, as he hoisted the Champion's Cup in 2004 as a member of the Calgary Roughnecks.
Despite his previous success, Ratcliff is hungry for more and feels the Stealth has a chance to continue its latest run among the elite teams in the NLL.
"With the expectations and team that we have in Washington, if we don't win it all the season won't be a success," he said.
