Bucks Lacrosse Information for 2014

 

MISSION:

The "Bucks" will have five (5) summer teams made up of players who will graduate high school between 2015 (current 11th graders) and 2020 (current 6th graders).  Teams will be grouped by high school graduation year and will receive the best coaching available from all of the Fairfield Lacrosse coaching staff.  At least two members of the staff will be at each practice and players will receive individual, small group, and team instruction as part of every practice.  Practices will be run consistent with the Fairfield Lacrosse practice template and will be fast paced, competitive, and designed to help players improve and elevate their game.                                                                   

If you're interested in experiencing lacrosse as a Division 1 player, with Division 1 coaching staff, at a Division 1 school, "Bucks Lacrosse" is a great opportunity to experience what it is like to be a member of the Fairfield Lacrosse program.
