Good Day Families,

We are excited about what 2023 will bring. It is going to be an amazing year. Below are some of the details of our upcoming year and the changes we are going to be making to ensure the best possible experience for each of our players. We look forward to growing in ‘23 together.

Summary of the Year

16 Academy Training Sessions

15+ Team Practices

5-7 Tournaments

Academy Training Sessions

These are high intensity sessions in which a player will get between 75 - 125 touches(Much more including warm-up). We will be teaching players individual skills which can be applied to any offense/defense while definitively working in the systems for our offense and defense. From these academy sessions, we can give players clear homework for the week, which might be wall ball, shooting, stretching, etc.

These sessions will be broken into 4 week blocks to give us consistent opportunities to work with players, but also schedule around coaches’ and player’s availability.

Team Practices

These practices are focused on developing team concepts like clears, rides, offense, and defense. These are where we will develop a player's lacrosse IQ. There will be small sided games as well as full field skills.


USA Hockey and USA Soccer have done a lot of research into what ratio of games to practices are best for developing their players. Essentially, their studies indicate that the practice to game ratio should be at least 2:1, but something closer to 3:1 is a better number for 101 Lacrosse based on the ages and experience of our athletes. In travel, we struggle to achieve this as we will play 5 games in a tourney but practice only a few times before that. This change aligns us with the current information and recommendations from some of the leading sports organizations and puts kids in a better position to be successful.

Scheduling will adjust for age, so the 10U would do less than the HS players in terms of schedule just because they need more time to "be a kid" than a HS player might.


Our costs will cover coaches, field rentals, tournament fees, etc. Our goal is not to price anyone out of lacrosse, but to be in line with what it takes to continue to build a program and invest in our children.

We’ve added a lot of value and will continue to be priced lower than the other clubs in Northern California. In many cases, significantly lower.

All of our options allow for payment plans and include a 10% discount for siblings. We offer Financial Aid for families who need it and have NEVER turned a player away as a result of cost.

Annual Membership

This is the option that provides the best training and value for everyone. It puts us all together for more time and gives our players the opportunity to really hone their skills. We will put the players through approximately 40-45 hours of lacrosse which we estimate translates to 4,000 - 5,000 touches and that doesn’t include games.

I wrote above about the need for more practice and getting close to a 3:1 practice to game ratio. This option is an investment in the development of your child’s lacrosse experience.

Included in the Annual Membership:

Gloves (boys)

Backpacks (girls)

Summer Travel (Tournaments)

Fall / Winter Travel (Tournaments)

Academies (4 sessions, approximately 16 total academy dates)

Good afternoon everybody. I'm looking at the weather and it looks dire for practice tomorrow morning. The weather report is for heavy rain from 5am throughout the evening with heavy winds (15-25). If it were just rain, I suppose I'd consider gambling on lighter rain, but the wind is the difference maker to me. It's very likely to be very miserable.


We have a couple of team updates for you. First, Gavin Koler will be taking over the coaching duties for the rest of fall/winter. I've added his contact info to Crossbar. We will provide additional assistance as well.

Next, we are going to pull out of the King's Showcase tournament. We think that it is the best thing for the players at this time and we want to focus on skill and team building throughout the rest of this session and build towards a successful summer. We're looking at opportunities for additional training for this group as well with some possible 'guest' coaching/clinics.

With that, we are offering a $200 cash refund or a $600 credit toward future seasons/clinics. Additionally, if your player is a 7th grader and would like to play in the tournaments with our 12U, please let me know. We can take about 4 on a first come basis.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
