Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the America, and for the past 11 years it has fielded teams in McKinney. With the success of our program and the exploding growth of the sport, we hope to increase awareness throughout the community through our relationship with the McKinney Chamber of Commerce.
The McKinney Lacrosse Club participates in the Texas Lacrosse League’s North Division representing the McKinney ISD against other North Texas cities and schools. The Club has boys and girls teams from first to 12th grade broken into four youth programs (Grades 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8) and JV and Varsity High School programs. Our club has grown to almost 300 players in the short time we have been organized.
The teams play a fall season from September to November and a spring season from February through April. The fall season focuses on skill development and conditioning, while the spring offers a competitive 10 to 12 game season followed by a playoff tournament. We also participate in a couple of travel tournaments each season.
Our Club prides itself on the great coaching staff we have assembled. Five of our youth coaches and several of our High School coaches have recent collegiate experience, introducing the modern game to our players. We also provide coaching specialists for goalie development and a strength and conditioning coach to establish a physically fit lifestyle for our players. Our coaching strategy is aligned at all levels so from the youngest age they are learning positioning and game play used by the high school teams.
In 2013, both our Varsity teams made the playoffs. National collegiate programs are also recruiting our players. In only our second graduating class, our girls program has three players considering offers from top colleges like Air Force and Army. The boys program has graduates playing for Mercer and Virginia Military Institute, and in 2015 we already have a boy committed to University of Denver, and our first female commitment to the new D1 program at Radford University.
We are recruiting players for all teams and will be opening up our spring registration in the next few weeks. We also have several levels of sponsorship for your business to get exposure to our members.
