OVERVIEW

Three seasons ago, West Chester Lacrosse Association ("WCLA") created its own girl's club team- the WC Patriots.  As we embark on our 4th season, we continue to grow as a brand and a program.  The Patriots focus on four main pillars:  community, location, value, and most importantly, 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.  Moreover, as the Patriots program evolves, our strength as a community will be key.  With 24 girl rec teams this past spring, 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.  But most importantly, the Patriots will offer a competitive program.  Starting with high quality paid coaches and continuing with extensive practice, training, and competition, the Patriots will be able to enter some of the area’s top tournaments with an expectation of winning.  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 

This new club program this year will be for rising 4th graders (graduation year 2028).  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 practice a week and two total tournaments.  The girls will continue 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 2028 Patriot team the following year.

 

PATRIOTS CLUB TEAM

This past year, the Patriots fielded a 2026/27 team and a 2024/25 team.  As the program continues to grow, the aim is to have 4 graduation year teams (2024, 2025, 2026,2027).  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, two, or three training sessions per week with a total of three to 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 a goal of fielding a team that can compete at a superior level.  Top notch 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.
