The coaches' mission is to develop our players into a team capable of winning conference and state championships. Moreover, the coaches want to use the sport of lacrosse to help our players learn to understand and to adopt the values of preparation, planning ahead, hard work, discipline, team work and a great attitude as the core values to having a successful lacrosse career and a successful college and adult life after lacrosse. Several of our players continue their lacrosse career in college.
