After years of running summer club teams for both boys and girls, 380 Lacrosse has turned its full attention to the girls side for summer 2016 and it paid off with all girls’ teams producing high level results at tournaments. 380 Lacrosse will continue to focus solely on its girls’ teams during the summer months, while continuing to train both boys and girls in the winter months indoors at The All Sports Center in Upper Providence, PA.
When asked about the club’s shift during the summer months, Coach Kacy Small, 380 Lacrosse Owner/Founder and Assistant Head Coach for The Hill School Boys Varsity program, answered:
“Coaching girls only this past summer was very refreshing as the boys’ summer scene and girls’ summer scene are very different.” said Small. “Coaching my girls’ program this past summer allowed me to recharge and reboot after the spring season with my boys’ Hill School team. We felt that there were too many boys clubs in the immediate area so we decided to focus on our girls!
“I still carry a great deal of my boys philosophies, strategies and techniques over to the girls field, but we pride ourselves on carrying over relevant info and injecting it into the girls game in a way that the girls can relate, as well as push their lax IQ.”
If you are ready for a new experience join Team 380 at its tryouts on August 21st at The Hill School, 860 Beech Street, Pottstown, PA 19464 (outdoor upper fields).

Coach Small oversees all practices and tournaments while working hand in hand with a staff comprised of current college coaches, a former D3 National Champion, current HS Head Coach, a Certified Speed and Agility Trainer and current college players who have come through the 380 Lacrosse girls program and gone on to play at the collegiate level.
“We know for a fact that our training methods and curriculum are unique, and our high tempo practices are unlike anything our girls have seen before joining our program,” said Small. “We undoubtedly prepare our girls for what its like to compete at the college level.
“Not only do we prepare them on the field, but we also work with the girls and their parents to navigate the college recruiting process with homework assignments where they are building, managing and updating college lists, as well as, reaching out to college coaches under our guidance. We do not pretend to think that ‘summer club alone will get them recruited’ and we put the time in to educate our athletes on the process and work with them to promote themselves effectively. We do not pretend to think ‘summer club’ will get them recruited, we are just a piece of the equation.”
