EDGE GIRLS ACADEMY PROGRAM

NEW EDGE GIRLS ACADEMY

The Brand NEW EDGE GIRLS ACADEMY has arrived. This new Girls Academy is the latest addition to Edge Nation, a community of athletes who strive for athletic and academic excellence. Our Edge Academy is designed exclusively for girls aged 7-17, providing elite performance pathways and ultimate flexibility for multi-sport athletes. At EDGE, we provide a positive training environment and club culture where we encourage, support and inspire young female athletes to reach their full potential. Academy members also have the opportunity to play on Edge ALL-STAR Tournament Teams and have access to unique and exclusive "NCAA EXPERIENCE" camps and trips. EDGE has been developing Canada's Best Student-Athletes since 2006, with over 500 boys and girls receiving NCAA scholarships.

THE EDGE APPROACH

The Edge Girls Academy training will focus on developing all aspects of the skills required to play Lacrosse at an elite level. Our program concentrates primarily on Field Lacrosse, but our training incorporates a hybrid Box and Field lacrosse training model to make a versatile player. Girls can work on the skills used in both versions of Lacrosse. We believe this training style is paramount to developing the complete player.

EDGE COLLEGE EXPERIENCES

The EDGE Girls Academy Program will combine NCAA School visits, Campus and Facility tours, and Pre-Tournament Training as part of our U.S. Tournament Weekends and Trips. Edge uses its relationships with College Coaches and Edge Alumni who are currently in the U.S. to build out these unique NCAA Experience Trips. 

ALL-STAR TOURNAMENT TEAMS

Edge will enter ALL-STAR Teams in 2-3 Tournaments per season. These tournaments will be offered to Girls Academy members. These teams and events are designed to provide unique lacrosse experiences to those members who wish to participate. If other commitments conflict with an event, that is OK. Members can attend all or a few based on what works best for them.

NIKE PARTNERSHIP

EDGE is proud to be the only Club in Canada that is an official NIKE TEAM. This status is usually reserved for National Sports Federations. Through our history of producing the sport's best players, leaders and National Team players, we were identified as a club that would be offered the opportunity for this exclusive NIKE TEAM status. As this partnership grows, we can offer EDGE Members exclusive equipment and apparel usually reserved for the world's best athletes. 

OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH EDGE

The opportunities for young aspiring female student-athletes are endless. One hundred seventeen schools offer Division 1 women's Lacrosse across 16 conferences: Atlantic 10, ACC, Big East, Big South, Big Ten, CAA, Ivy League, Pac-12, Patriots League…Division 2 Lacrosse is offered at 114 colleges, and Division 3 Lacrosse is offered at 293 schools.  
What is incredible about NCAA Women's Lacrosse is the academic quality of schools that offer scholarships and unmatched postgraduate networking. Women's Lacrosse provides some of the world's best facilities and support for student-athletes. With roster sizes set at 30 and the number of athletic scholarships available between 12 full Tuition in D1 and 9 full Tuition in D2, female Lacrosse offers one of the best recruiting opportunities across all sports. Students can also receive academic scholarships and financial aid at some schools based on university-specific thresholds. D3 schools work strictly off financial need-based aid, academic scholarships, and other grants and bursaries.
