Program Information

Welcome to Twenty Four Lacrosse.  We are the fastest growing professionally run travel lacrosse club on Long Island.  We pride ourselves in delivering a premium youth lacrosse experience.  The fiber of our club is a combination of dedicated players, coaches and families who love the game and whenever possible prioritize their participation in our activities on and off the field.   Our model lends to development of our players through proactive coaching and creating as many quality play/practice opportunities as possible.  We recruit the most committed lacrosse players that will leverage what we offer to further their individual development, and that of the team.   From the beginning of the season to its conclusion, Twenty Four Lacrosse teams and players will be the most improved if they adhere to our training regiment and core beliefs.

 

We do not judge our teams by wins and losses, but more by our ability to develop a cohesive unit of players that are willing to extend themselves for each other and play at or close to their natural ability.  It’s a team sport and our players will learn to play the game correctly; we will never encourage selfish play.  We will seek out the most competitive teams to challenge us so we can better understand our capabilities and where a path to improvement can be identified. 

 

We consider effort and attendance at our team practices to be paramount in the success of our teams.  We will instill in each player a “never quit” attitude that will thrive in the toughest competitive situations.    Playing time will be determined more by effort in practice rather then natural talent.  Our goal is develop a core group of players that will always out-work their competitors and have an uncommon desire to succeed. 

 

To achieve our objectives, each player & team will be put on a roadmap to succeed.  Whether a player requires improvement in speed/agility or stick skills, we will suggest a regiment of extracurricular training to push each individual's development curve.   We will be honest with regards to each player’s role and give constant feedback on how they can contribute more as individuals and team players.

 

Players and families will understand that joining Twenty Four is being part of an organization that strives to push development pragmatically, with realistic goals that keep each player & team on a trajectory of improvement.    Each player will learn how to train harder and be mentally tougher than our opponents.   At an early age, our program will teach our players to work hard, be accountable for their actions and that the team always takes priority to individual.

  • Playtime is earned at practice.  We will attempt to balance playing time when possible however there are situations where we will have some players in more if we are in tight games.   We will attempt to make up playing time when possible.  

  • If other sports team take priority over our club, then most likely this team is not for you.  We are a serious lacrosse club with high expectations for our program, coaches and players.

  • Regular Attendance to practice is required.  Low attendance at practice limits the coach’s ability to elevate the level of play of the team as a whole.  Your playtime is directly correlated with your participation in practice.  If you can't make practice, make sure the coach knows why.

  • Win with class, lose with class.  No matter the outcome, good competition will always make us better.

  • Recognize that officiating is never perfect and challenging officials regarding their calls never results in the call being changed.

  • Parents should NEVER approach coach’s about their concerns right after a game or practice.  The proper protocol is to email the coach and request a call be setup to discuss any and all issues.  You must not contact a coach via phone/text or email until at least 24 hours have elapsed if this is related to a specific incident.  This is a cool down period to assure parents and coaches have time to calm down before communications are exchanged.
