Director: Dan Deckelbaum Contact:

West Chester Elevated Lacrosse Club (WCEL) is a Fall & Summer program designed to teach individual skill progression, lacrosse IQ, team concepts, and provide competitive game play. The WCEL program will be competitive, intense and fun while also being a cost-effective alternative to other club programs. Our approach is a practice first mentality. Practice is where players improve and games are where players are tested. The ultimate goal is to provide a fun environment where players develop lacrosse skills and knowledge to play at a higher competitive level in high school or college. WCEL will never compete with Chester County Lacrosse Association events; there will be no events during spring lacrosse season.

– Every team will have at least one coach with high school or college coaching experience.
– A line of communication will always be open from coach to parents and players for feedback
– Optional Winter Box Lacrosse Season (additional cost)
– Dan Deckelbaum is West Chester Lacrosse Association boys’ director of lacrosse, offensive coordinator at Avon Grove HS, district & state champion HS coach and a former MLL & NLL player.
