TEAMS

null

In today’s world of club lacrosse, we are considered a “Boutique” … and that is just the way we like it. We will never have more than 1 team per grade, and we focus exclusively on the high school players.

  • We will not ask for a year round commitment.
  • We will not offer endless “additional sessions” to fill our slow times, and coffers.
  • We will not use your son as a promo for Division I recruits.

We do what we do because we love the game. We are college coaches and former collegiate players. We will respect your time and your budget. The Black Jacks are a club team formed under 21 Lacrosse, Inc. - a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. We actively raise funds to offset the cost of any player’s fee if they are in need. No one gets a “full ride”, for then the value of the program would = $0. Everyone needs to have skin in the game to place a value on the experience. Our mantra; however, is that NO player will not play because he cannot afford the fee. We do everything in our power to make it affordable. Not unlike college, our funds are not limitless, so they are distributed on a first-come-first served basis.

SCHOOLS

Below are a few of the schools our Players have attended. Our job is to find the right fit for your son and your family - not to push him to the highest level possible knowing his chances of playing are slim and none. I can assure you, playing at a competitive Division III school is a far better experience than sitting on the bench for 4 years at a Division I school ...
