Players in the West San Fernando, Simi, and Conejo Valleys now have the professionally run youth lacrosse team experience they've long been waiting for.  We are pleased to offer a developmentally-appropriate spring lacrosse experience for players of all backgrounds and abilities.

Over the last decade, we’ve been brought in as consultants to found or rebuild many dozens of youth lacrosse programs on the East Coast, Midwest, and West  Coast.  We’ve helped league directors and administrators everywhere model their organization for success and achievement of the proper mission.  Our coaches are all full-time lacrosse professionals in Southern California and head coaches and assistant coaches of several area High School programs.  We have everything needed in-house to provide area lacrosse players with THE OPTIMAL SPRING LACROSSE EXPERIENCE.

WORLD-CLASS COACHING

  • Every one of our coaches is highly experienced and has played at the collegiate or professional level
    • You send your children to schools with experienced teachers and organized lesson plans - do the same for their sports
  • Each of our coaches are thoroughly trained in coaching methods
    • Our philosophy and coaching pedagogy are based on graduate work in the coaching and sport psychology fields

EQUAL-OPPORTUNITY
