2021-2022 Program Overview

Welcome to the Family.

At the core of all of our Penguins Select Lacrosse Club lacrosse teams is a relentless focus on player development. We are a program comprised of student athletes who strive to be the best possible version of themselves in the classroom, on the field, and in the community.

We work tirelessly to ensure that all players coming through our program truly understand the game of lacrosse and the commitment that it takes to play at the game’s highest levels.

We pride ourselves building young men of character in a team-first, family environment, teaching players to succeed beyond the lacrosse field, and instilling players with a passion for the game of lacrosse that has led to Penguins Alumni represented on rosters at all three levels of NCAA lacrosse as well as at top MCLA programs.

Our coaches are committed to holding our student athletes to the highest possible standard on and off of the field. Those who find success as a member of the Penguins team take their improvement seriously in practice and in games, are highly competitive, and are committed to putting in hours outside of structured practice and game time to reach their goals.

We strive to put our student athletes in an environment where they are surrounded by coaches and peers who are committed, driven, and team oriented and determined to get the most out of every opportunity to get better.

Winter Box Lacrosse Seasons 

As members of USBOXLA, we are one of New England’s only opportunity to play REAL box lacrosse.

“I believe that box lacrosse gives young people many more opportunities to excel in our game.  If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of twelve play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time.  The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse, far surpasses what happens to young people on a 110 x 60 yard field.  Learning how to pass and catch in traffic, understanding how to shoot, and developing a sense of physicality are all positive traits developed by the box game.” – Bill Tierney, Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach, University of Denver

“Every kid should play box lacrosse.” – John Desko, Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach, Syracuse University

“Being a part of the finesse and physicality of box lacrosse has been a great experience for me. I feel that I have learned and improved as an overall lacrosse player. Learning to adapt in tight space while reading defenders and offensive players has been the biggest improvement in my game.” – Paul Rabil, Co-Founder PLL
