Our Elite program is for the serious lacrosse player looking for the ultimate travel team experience. This program will draw players interested in traveling around the country and compete in high-quality tournaments.
The core of our travel program is based on learning, allowing growth through mistakes and encouragements, and immersing fundamentals and fun in games and at practice. Grounded in this foundation we aim to build better athletes in the long run who play longer, learn important life lessons, and have better skills at higher levels of lacrosse.
The 2021 Elite will have a year-round model for the 2016-2017 season. The Frogs team will begin Practice the first week of October and end in late July/early August.
**Frog Lacrosse is focused on smaller roster sizes. We will only carry 18-20 players per team. The number of players per position will vary per team.
