It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Your HS player’s lacrosse career is winding down and your thoughts turn to preparing for college. Yes, you have a player committed to the next level – but will he or she have what it takes? Summer options for development are slim and playing in a random tournament or two isn’t enough. You need to prepare to compete at the next level. 

 " I have personally designed a program based on my 30 years of experience as a college lacrosse coach and the firsthand knowledge of what players need as they enter this stage of their career. I have also experienced this from a parent’s perspective with my son Matt." -Jim Stagnitta MLL Charlotte Hounds Head Coach
