Elite Lacrosse Club’s Mission and Philosophy:
Elite LC is a club lacrosse team that is dedicated to developing and promoting the talents of youth and high school girls’ lacrosse players from the Harford, Cecil and Baltimore Counties. We are a dedicated staff of experienced coaches, committed to training and encouraging our student-athletes to the best of their potential, both on and off the field. Elite LC provides student-athletes with high level coaching which helps develop players’ lacrosse skills as well as their athletic mindset in an energetic and positive environment. We believe our student-athletes should experience a fun TEAM sport environment, not just a showcase for individuals. That said, we understand the recruiting side of club play and are committed to helping our players find a collegiate home for lacrosse, regardless of the level. We are passionate about the game and we want to make sure every one of our student-athletes competes to the best of their ability with the same passion.
Elite LC will achieve its mission by:
Elite’s mission and philosophy supports the belief that our student-athletes will become better equipped to cope with life’s challenges in a disciplined and constructive way - something that will prove to be valuable to them as they grow and face the challenges of life.
