As a program founded by coaches, our focus is quality instruction above all else. Our success in tournament play and in helping players get recruited by college coaches is a result of our ability to train lacrosse athletes unlike any other program in the Southeast. With over 150 men’s and women’s lacrosse coaches in our organization, we are able to provide the appropriate instruction for your son or daughter wherever they are in their progression and allow them the opportunity to achieve their personal goals within the program
Elite Lacrosse is for boys and girls players who are looking to compete against the top lacrosse teams in North America. Our high school Elite teams travel to prestigious recruiting tournaments while our middle school Elite teams attend highly selective tournaments that help prepare them for the recruiting events in their future. Our boys’ Regional teams are located throughout Atlanta and are intended to provide emerging players the opportunity to improve under the instruction of experienced coaches who follow the same curriculum used by our Elite teams. The Lady Storm Regional and Developmental teams focus on skill enhancement and play in local tournaments to provide players the opportunity to assess their improvement.
The Warehouse is our 7500 square foot indoor facility where our talented group of instructors provides individual and small group training for boys and girls of all ages and skill levels.
Absolutely. Almost all of our instructional offerings are open to players both in and out of our team programs. Our mission is to help create better lacrosse players without any bias toward where they choose to play travel, high school, feeder or rec lacrosse.
