ABOUT FORCE LACROSSE
The Force Lacrosse Club offers a complete lacrosse training program for all boys travel players U11-HS. Our coaching staff proactively teaches lacrosse fundamentals, situational awareness, and team concepts, in an environment committed to developing the whole boy as both a player and as a young man. Our aim is for the boys to work together as a unit, and to push each other to the next level, in preparation for their school and community teams in the spring, as well as high level competition in tournament play.
First, and foremost, we are a teaching club. Our staff is 100% committed to working with each player to take them as far along their individual potential as a player, and as a teammate, as possible. Our coaches challenge boys to be at their best as athletes and as young men, as we believe that a winning culture can only thrive if all feel integral to a common goal. We feel that this can only happen in a positive environment in which each athlete is treated with respect, and accepted for who they are as young men, while being encouraged to step up and take charge of their own development as athletes and as young men.
