EDGE 2020 – 2021 Academy Overview – Women’s Program
Thank you to all the talented women who participated in our Spring-Summer lacrosse training the past few months. It has been great to see so many focused and dedicated student-athletes working towards their academic and athletic goals. This fall, we are excited to introduce a brand-new offering for our women’s program, Women’s Academy. This has been a few years in the making, our vision is to provide female players the opportunity to enhance their training and development in a year long program.

The Women’s Academy program is modeled after our Men’s Academy that has brought our men’s training, development, and recruitment to new heights. The Academy program is designed to offer training and fitness for members locally here in the GTA and provide them elite level coaching and development and outfit the team with uniforms and apparel. We will have two teams in the women’s academy, Women’s Varsity (U19/U17) and Women’s JV (U15/U13).
