From Press Release
A new boys’ lacrosse club program, the Lehigh Valley’s Legion Lacrosse, will focus on teaching and skill development.
“We see hundreds of Club teams a year and what has really surprised us has been the lack of detailed coaching in Club Lacrosse,” said Director Jim Rogalski, the head coach at Lafayette College. “We are starting Legion to coach and teach players next level Lacrosse.”
Legion will start its first year with three teams, 2017-2018, 2019-2020 and 2021-2022. Try-outs will be at Moravian College on December 20th. The try-out will also feature a skills clinic to highlight exactly what the Legion brand will stand for: “Highly skilled Lacrosse players, working hard to develop the highest level skills so the can pursue the next level”

Every Legion team will be coached by a college coaching staff. Staffs from Moravian College, DeSales and Lafayette will be traveling and coaching one of the select teams.
There isn’t another club program in the area that is coached at every level by a college coach. The coaching staffs at Legion will have coached ranked teams at the D1, D2 and D3 levels and have coached over 25 NCAA All-Americans and countless numbers of All-League players.
The Legion will also offer individual evaluations of every player by College Coaches. Along with two coaches on every level, Legion will also provide a Director of Player Development that will assess each player and provide him with a plan to improve his skill so he can play at the next level.
“Legion will provide our players with the highest level of Coaching, national exposure and a great team experience,” Rogalski said.
