We still have more fun!
Below you're going to read a lot about how our club has become a nationally-ranked Midwest powerhouse with a laundry list of commitments and trophies. We are incredibly proud of those accomplishments.
But we will never forget where we came from and our number one goal since day 1 - to provide young student-athletes with an amazing lacrosse experience that will foster a life-long passion for the sport.
TWENTY-NINE (29) #SchoolFirst Commitments in the 2021 class!
We help our boys reach their dreams! Coaches Opron and Morrell guide our boys through the entire recruiting process. We help our boys brainstorm a list of #schoolfirst college options, draft emails to college coaches, compile their highlight films, select the right mix of exposure events, negotiate scholarships, and MUCH more.
Simply put, we find an amazing home for ALL of our players who wish to play at the next level!
And our 2022 class is already making noise!
