Our Program Goals:
1. To create a positive lacrosse experience that will develop your child as lacrosse player and more importantly, as a person.
2. To prepare your child, as a lacrosse player, to compete with the best players in his age group.
3. To teach valuable life lessons such as good sportsmanship, teamwork, maturity and competitiveness.
4. To honor the game and promote the sport of lacrosse in our local community.
5. To prepare your child for the challenge of playing high level high school and college lacrosse.
6. To continue to foster the fraternity of lacrosse in the South Jersey region.

How our goals are accomplished (updated for 2018-19 season):

Fall:
Shamrocks players will have the opportunity to participate in 1 to 3 optional fall lacrosse tournaments depending on age. 
High School aged players will participate in high level recruiting tournaments. 
Middle School players will compete in very competitive regional tournaments. 
All players will participate in multiple Team Practices throughout the fall.  The practices are designed so that players can and should participate in other sports (typically Sunday evenings).   High School players will also participate in the Shamrocks Spotlight Series.  The Spotlight Series is a high level training session coached and run by current NCAA college coaches.
 
Winter: 
Shamrocks players will participate in our Winter Training Academy including  individual skill development and scrimmages.   These sessions will focus on developing and reinforcing critical skill sets that will apply to the field game.  These sessions will are designed so that you can and should play additional sports.
 
Spring:
If the schedule presents time, select teams will hold Spring Team Practices to be held in April and May.  These practices are not designed to interfere with your spring lacrosse team(s).  All Youth Teams will participate in at least 1 play day with other club teams.
 
Summer:
All players will have Team Practices one to two days per week.
