LC New York - Program Overview
Please see below for detailed information on the LC New York club lacrosse program. We operate in New York City, and provide top level development training and tournament play for lacrosse-playing athletes who want to take their game to the next level.
Playing lacrosse at a high level in NYC requires a lot of commitment from players and parents, but it also requires transparency, and an ability to navigate the tough NYC sports landscape, as well as the connections to the greater lacrosse community, from your club organization.
The goal of our program is to compete at the highest levels, but in order to accomplish that, we tend to run things differently than most of your typical club programs in Westchester, New Jersey, CT, or Long Island.
Team-by team Program Descriptions, the LC New York Commitment Policy, a roster of Directors and Coaches, information on fees, our Philosophy on Lacrosse Development in NYC, and much more can all be found below.
Welcome to LC New York!
Program 2018-19 Overview. For better continuity, team building, and an improved development arc, we will ask our families to commit to the Fall, Winter, and Summer seasons (payments in 3 installments). Each season will have 8-10 training
sessions/tournaments. We are working on hosting our own LCNY Fall tournament in addition to our customary attendance at the Trilogy NJ event on November 11. Our Box program will continue in the winter at Dalton School and concludes with a tournament at an indoor facility, also in NJ. Summer tournaments will also all be one-day events and will conclude the third weekend in June. New LC New York gear is being designed. All in all, we believe the LC New York schedule and value offers the best for a dedicated New York City lacrosse player in grades 3-11.
Program Schedule Overview (for planning purposes; details to follow; subject to permit and tournament details).
Fall 2018 Training, Practices, and Tournaments (required). 6-7 Sunday late morning training/practices (11AM start) in
September-October-Early November. Starting either September 9 or 16. LCNY in process of setting up/hosting a one day

Winter Box Lacrosse Training and Tournament 2018-19 (required). 7 training sessions focused on developing box

Late May-June Summer 2019 Team Practices and Tournaments (required to play in all 3 of our tournaments). 8 team
practices and 3 one day June weekend tournaments.
Commitment/Attendance Expectations. READ CAREFULLY. Missing a practice or two each season is acceptable; missing
tournaments is not fair to teammates, coaches, and the program and is not acceptable. Simply put, we are asking our families to make lacrosse a one day a week commitment in Fall and Winter and 3-day a week commitment in Late May through the third week of June.
