Premier Lacrosse has quickly risen to become the top choice for lacrosse instruction not only in Dutchess County,but the rest of the Hudson Valley as well.
Premier Lacrosse offers Summer and Fall travel team opportunities geared toward the serious, dedicated lacrosse player who possesses a high commitment level and determination to become the best lacrosse player they can be .Our goal will be to expose these players to a higher level of competition and to further develop their lacrosse skills and lacrosse IQ.
Team rosters will be filled by positional needs of the team and are by invitation only . Team rosters will be reduced in size in order to maximize player development, have a great coach/player ratio, and provide the best quality experience and value for all.
If you are interested in becoming a part of the Premier Lacrosse family and joining us for the summer of 2016, please e-mail Premier Lacrosse Director Coach Connolly at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
