OVERVIEW

 

West Chester Lacrosse Association has its own girl's club team- the WC Patriots.  The Patriots focus on four main pillars:  community, location, value, and competitiveness.  All practices will be at local sites, including Kelly Field and WCASD high school fields.  When entering tournaments, the club considers the difficulties of travel and selects tournaments that are easily accessible from our area, cutting down on the exorbitant costs other clubs place on families.  Our strength as a community is key.  WCLA has grown into the premier lacrosse program in the area in both size and talent.  Keeping these girls together in both rec and club will create the continuity needed to dominate in years to come.  Bottom line:  WC Patriots is the best club option for our WCLA players...and the future is bright for WC Patriot Lacrosse!

 

THE PROGRAMS

 

Patriots Prep 2030

 

Patriots Prep is a club program for rising 4th graders (graduation year 2030).  The Prep program will provide year-round training with an understanding that at this age, kids should be well-rounded and involved in many activities.  Patriots Prep will be broken into three 8 week sessions:  early fall, late winter, and early summer.  There will be one or two practices a week and three total tournaments.  The girls will separately register to play in the 3/4 WCLA rec program, but they will be getting the year-round training necessary to develop as club-level players.  The expectation is that the Patriot Prep players will stay together to form the nucleus of the Patriot 2030 team the following year.

Patriots Club Team 

This past year, the Patriots fielded six (6) teams: 2025, 2026, (2) 2027, (2) 2028, plus our Patriots Prep 2029 program.  With an emphasis on community, the hope is our dedicated rec players will transition right into the Patriots program.  The Patriot’s club season will be split into three sessions:  early fall, late winter, and early summer.  There will be one or two practices per week with a total of four or five tournaments depending on the graduation year. The girls will continue to play in the 5/6 A and B and 7/8 A and B WCLA rec program.  The Patriots club program is designed to be competitive with the goal of fielding a team that can compete at a superior level.  Top-notch paid coaching coupled with the continuity of the girls playing year-round lacrosse in both rec and club will allow the Patriots to grow together and be recognized as an elite and dominant club program.
