Coaching Makes a Difference

The strength of True Philadelphia is our coaching staff.

Our coaches are interviewed and screened and serve as positive role models in our player's development. All of our coaches have extensive experience coaching and/or playing the game. A True Lacrosse coach is as much a mentor as a coach; expect consistent communication that will include examples and explanation of team concepts and individualized critique of your performance.
