Mission Statement

We want to train, develop and mentor the most competitive lacrosse players in Concord, California and the surrounding East Bay towns.

College Counseling

Part of players fees will go towards a discussion and planning of getting prepared for making the right college choice. This discussion will cover being a student athlete at the next level: MCLA or NCAA. This will be done upon player request and scheduled that week.

Film Breakdown

Part of players fees will go towards a sit down and 20 minute film breakdown from their spring games with coach Christmas. This will be done upon player request and scheduled that week.

2018 Schedule

Training Camp

May 25th – 28th (Training Camp Retreat – 2 Rivers Facility)
We are thrilled to be holding our annual training camp this summer at beautiful Two Rivers Camp! The camp, located in Graeagle, California is features 3 pristine grass and turf fields, nestled in the majestic Sierra with two rushing streams bordering the 40-acre, sports specific site. We decided to host training camp at Two Rivers this summer with the vision that combining lacrosse training with a true camping experience in a marvelous setting would be something that makes lasting memories and allows the boys to bond to create a chemistry that is unrivaled amongst club lacrosse programs.
The weekend will be all inclusive with food, lodging, and all activities (nature hikes, archery, fishing, rafting, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and outdoor games) are covered as part of camp registration. We will also have a bus transportation option for those players whose parents want to take the long weekend to themselves. Players will send the weekend watching the NCAA D1 Championship on Memorial Day and special parents banquet is being planned as well for those spending the weekend in the Sierras or picking up players.
