Athena Travel Teams

Athena Lacrosse believes that you and your daughter should have the summer to travel, compete and have fun. As a result, we limit the travel team time constraints and requirements on your daughter and your family.

We have high school, middle school and youth travel teams (grad classes 2021 - 2028). See below for more information!

High School Travel Teams

Summer 2021 High School Team

Where possible, we will select our travel teams based on graduation year.  If an appropriate number of players are not available for each graduating year, we will have an "open" team of mixed graduation years.

Teams will be finalized after invitations to join have been accepted/declined after tryouts.

Please note: rising freshman (class of 2025) are not permitted to play in high school divisions at tournaments.

High School Schedules and Tournaments

Practice Schedule
Our practice schedule will look a little different this season due to COVID-19.

Our high school team will have weekly outdoor practice in September and October, and November weather permitting. In lieu of indoor practices, December-February we will have weekly individual workouts/challenges that will be up to the player to complete. We will also hold periodic Zoom "chalk talk" sessions with coaches.

We will break for the holidays and for the regular spring lacrosse season. Summer practices will begin again in June 2021 and will be 2-3 times per week in the evenings.

Athena Lacrosse’s Commitment to You

Unlike programs that
1.) make unrealistic promises (“all of our players get into Division 1 programs”),
2.) just look to churn and burn players (“we take anyone as long as they can pay”) or
3.) don’t care if they help your daughter by putting her in the best position to excel (e.g. take teams to tournaments they go 0-5 at), Athena Lacrosse’s staff strives to do everything possible to improve your daughter’s fundamental skills (stick skills and lax IQ) and help her achieve her future goals, whether it is to play in college or to be the best player she can be. To that end, our staff does the following:

Give you an honest evaluation of your daughter’s ability

Our staff has over 40 years of combined experience coaching, playing lacrosse and helping players. We use that knowledge and experience to help guide your daughter through the college recruiting process so that she finds a school at which she can succeed both academically and athletically. For example, if your daughter is 5’1″, runs a 5.8 40-yard dash and carries a 2.6 GPA, we will not set her and you up for failure by making unrealistic promises that we can get her into The University of Maryland (national D1 champs). Instead, we will work to get her into a D3 school where she can handle the academics and compete athletically.

Use our network of college coaches to find a place for your daughter to play in college

Unlike some of the other programs out there who know only a few college coaches and are only willing to email them, our coaching staff will utilize an extensive list of college coaches that we will actually call on your daughter’s behalf.

Make calls on your daughter’s behalf to the college programs of her choice

We want to stress what was stated above. In an effort to help your daughter get recruited by the schools she has a strong interest in attending, our staff calls the coaches at those schools to impress upon them your daughter’s qualifications and desire to play for them. College coaches have repeatedly told club coaches, parents, and prospective players that this is the number one thing that programs, players and parents can do for their recruitment.

Work to improve your daughter’s lacrosse ability so that she can succeed at the next level

Our coaches will work diligently with your daughter to develop and implement solid fundamental skills and lax IQ through our practices, clinics and camps. These give our players the opportunity to improve their skills and lax IQ while receiving the detailed small group instruction that will allow her to be best prepared to showcase her talent in front of college coaches.

Attend tournaments that allow your daughter to showcase her talent in front of college coaches

Our coaches work with the college coaches and tournament directors to ensure that we are attending the top tournaments and competing against the correct level of teams so that our players will get recruited. It does your daughter no good, and actually harms her chances, to attend a tournament and play against teams with much higher or lower skill levels. We will find the right fit for our players at every tournament we attend.

Focus exclusively on your daughter

We will make sure to effectively communicate with both players and parents to ensure we are all following the same path. On the field, our coaches will help develop the skills your daughter needs the most focus on to help her achieve her lacrosse goals.

Off the field, we will be asking each student athlete to do her part by being a person of the highest character on and off the field, and achieving the highest level of academic grades she can provide for herself. Nothing will be more beneficial to any student athlete than her grades; grades give you the best opportunity to be recruited!

Please understand we do none of the above for those not fully committed to our travel teams.
