-We have improved the travel experience for families, which was a burden due to the extra costs for hotels and transportation. There will be hotel room blocks for all tournaments to make travel plans easier for our families. We are coordinating travel team schedules in attempt to have siblings play at the same tournaments / venues.
-We have added more hours during the week for the fall and winter for more practice times! This means your sons will be getting more hands on coaching during the offseason. We offer the most hours (100) of training in the off-season over any other travel team program in the Pittsburgh region.
ONCE ON A TRUE PITTSBURGH TRAVEL TEAM YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO JOIN THE TRUE NATIONAL TEAM. The True National Team, comprised of all the best True Lacrosse Players from each Midwest state, will be competing at the #1 competitive selective showcase in the nation – INSIDE LACROSSE TOURNAMENT and the NSCLA’s.
To be considered a player has to have a highlight reel or film.
