From Press Release

Black Bear Lacrosse Club Announced earlier this week its 2017-2018 Club Coaching Staff.

Director’s Bryan Churchey and Grady Wise had this to say, “We’ve put together in our eyes the best quality coaching staff in the area from our youth teams all the way through to our high school teams. We both believe that in order for our community to continue to grow we need to offer them the best quality coaching and instruction for an affordable price. We’ve added two new teams at 4th and 5th grade with an Entry Level approach offering families who are looking to give their child the chance to learn more and get better the opportunity to do so for a very low cost to families. We know that travel is expensive and we want families to know we are here to give your son that opportunity!”

Every youth team at Black Bear has a current or former High School Varsity Head Coach at the helm along with assistant coaches who are young, passionate, knowledgeable LOCAL college players who grew up in the very communities Black Bear recruits many of their kids from. There three high school teams boast some the most knowledgeable and skilled coaches in the area on both sides of the ball.

Black Bear will be holding its 2nd tryout for its club teams on Sunday August 20 at Phoenixville High School, 1200 Gay Street Phoenixville, PA 19460 from 4:30-6pm for 4th (2026) through 6th (2024) grade and 6:30-8pm for 7th (2023) through 11th (2019) grade players.
