About Us

Our local teams are for beginner, intermediate and advanced players. We stress the fundamentals and subtle nuances of the game over "winning at all costs". We believe in hard work, unselfish play, and building character.

Our seasoned coaches strive to teach the technical skills of lacrosse while providing an opportunity for personal development. We believe that lacrosse should be fun for the players but provide a foundation for building character that will instill teamwork, discipline, integrity, sportsmanship and respect to other players, coaches and parents.

We are committed to multiple practices a week, games on the weekends, and some travel.

DATES

The current youth lacrosse development model rushes to identify the best players at early ages, and leaves potential players behind with limited opportunity to play. The LADM aim is to keep more players engaged with the sport longer, allowing the best players to emerge as they reach physical maturity.
