Baggataway teams will attend 4 summer tournaments. Youth teams will attend Summer Slam, TriStates National Festival, Patriot Games and one more TBA. Our high school teams will attend Summer Slam, TriStates and two more tournaments that we feel will get them the best exposure to college coaches.
Baggataway players will participate in at least 12 practices outside of the summer tournaments that will primarily focus on team play, maximizing their lacrosse IQ and field awareness in game situations.
In addition to practices players will have the opportunity to participate in several position specific clinics including goalie clinics, face off clinics, and shooting clinics to allow players to fine tune their individual skills and increase their confidence. High school players will learn from and be advised by current college coaches and players on the recruiting process and how it works during free recruiting seminar.
Baggataway Lacrosse Club was made possible with the support from Baggataway Tavern in West Conshohocken. The owners and managers of Baggataway Tavern are made up of legendary players and coaches in lacrosse.
