Registration is open for Team 11 Juniors, a developmental program for youth boys (Grades 1 to 3) this fall.
What is Team 11 Juniors?
“My name is Joey Sankey and I am the founder of Team 11/ Sankey Lacrosse. This is our first year running the Team 11 Juniors Program, and our mission is to offer affordable and elite level training for young players. This program is offered to players entering 1st through 3rd grade. If you are younger or older and interested in this developmental program, please reach out to us through team11lax.com.”
“The value and importance of receiving quality fundamental instruction at the beginning stages of learning the sport cannot be understated. My father, Coach Harry Sankey Sr, started instilling the proper fundamentals in me in the 1st Grade when I started playing. That skillset of learning how to cradle, catch, pass, shoot, and pickup groundballs the CORRECT way is something that is still with me today while playing at the highest level in the PLL.”
