Our Model

The Lacrosse Athlete Development Model:

The Right Lacrosse at the Right Time

Competition for Development

Competition is part of our DNA. We love to play, and game-day is the best day of the week.

The lacrosse athlete development model takes a progressive approach to preparing athletes for long-term success. By providing developmentally appropriate competition formats and rules, players get to play in ways that align with their physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.

It starts with small-sided games at younger ages, with size of field and the number of players progressively increasing as players develop both physically and cognitively. When players are developing skills and have emerging decision-making capacity, the game supports that development. It's all about the right competition at the right time.
