FALL PROGRAMMING DETAILS
We are eager to continue training in September. We are offering training 3x a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) through the entire fall season. Our goal is to provide VALUE and EXPERIENCE to our youth members. The focus is to teach and develop a player’s fundamental and advanced skill set in a fun and positive environment. We offer a great price point in order to provide tremendous value in the training and development we provide. We believe that You get OUT, what you put IN. We expect to see great improvements in your son’s abilities throughout the fall.

New this year, we have decided to align our youth teams with USLacrosse Youth Age groups. We feel this is the most appropriate way to ensure our teams play against teams within the same age group at US events.

All training and practices are hosted by EDGE Team Coaches, NCAA and EDGE Alum. Positional coaches will be present at every practice to provide specialized coaching for attack, midfielders, defensemen, goal-tending and faceoffs.

FALL TOURNAMENTS
Each team will travel to 2-3 US lacrosse tournaments. Tournament dates and details will be confirmed in September once the team rosters have been confirmed. We have tentative dates in place for now and will take into consideration team availability prior to securing these events. 

Most youth teams will compete in fall ball events in NY, MI with one possible event as a distance event in PA or MD. When selecting events for youth teams, we look at finding events that provide quality competition, good value, within a reasonable drive. Tournament fees are paid by travelling players only for each particular weekend.

On weekends where the team is travelling for a tournament, there will be no scheduled Saturday practice. However, we will do our best to arrange to have a brief practice/walkthrough on the Friday evening of a tournament.

We do offer training only positions at the youth level. These positions are for players who wish to participate in the local training, but may not be able to travel for US tournaments.
