How Shamrocks Navigated the Pandemic

By Bill Keane 07/23/2020, 7:30am EDT

Let me start by saying I am really proud of our coaches and staff!

We are proud to share with you all of the hard work, dedication and commitment that our coaches and staff made to our players this year. There were(and still are) so many situations through the pandemic that have tested our resolve. During this time, we are proud to say that our staff did not waiver, did not make excuses and managed every road block thrown at them with efficiency and professionalism. Our coaches and staff went above and beyond to ensure the kids were going to play and our program would honor all of our commitments to our players and families. We are very proud of our staff and want to recognize them for their commitment.

How We Managed the Spring in Quarantine

Shamrocks Youth Team Olympics:

Cue the Trumpets: Our players were excellent Olympians this spring: teams were drafted, team pics and profiles were created. Players competed by completing daily events such as the Monday Mile, Top Dog Tuesday and Wall Ball Wednesday.

Favorite Team Names: Quaran-Team, the Shakin' Shamrocks, the Covid Fighters

High School Prove it Program:

Players had the option to participate in our Prove It Program in which players completed a variety of training exercises each day including fitness, lacrosse and mental/team building. Players "proved" to themselves and their coaches that they had the commitment and desire to excel to a new level.

Virtual College Recruiting Meetings:

All 2021 and 2022 players had the opportunity to meet with our recruiting coordinators on a one on one basis via zoom, facetime etc.

Interested in joining the Shamrocks 2020-21 Teams?

By Bill Keane 07/09/2020, 5:15pm EDT

Shamrocks Lacrosse will be evaluating new players for our 2020-21 teams throughout the summer on a rolling basis.   We will be offering spots to players entering grades 2 through 11 this fall for both our Boys and Girls program.  Our 2020-21 season will begin in September 2020 and carry though until July 2021.  New players will have the opportunity to be evaluated at our Small Group Training and other training events from July through September.   This will give us the opportunity to coach the players in a smaller environment to determine if we are the right fit.  Players can also select multiple dates in order to be evaluated over the course of a few dates rather than one tryout.  The youngest teams (2029 and 2030) may have additional evaluations through the year to fill out their rosters.  To learn more about each program please click on the respective link:

'21 Ruwet Commits to Bloomsburg University

By Bill Keane 06/28/2020, 11:15am EDT

Congrats are in order for 2021 Payton Ruwet on her recent commitment to NCAA DII Bloomsburg University where she will study Nursing and compete on the Women's Lacrosse team.   Bloomsburg University is located in Bloomsburg, PA and competes in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) against teams such as the West Chester University, Kutztown University and Slippery Rock University.   Bloomsburg started out the shortened 2020 season hot with 4 wins and 1 loss after finishing up the 2019 season as a top 25 team.

Payton is a hard-working, dedicated multi- sport student athlete.   While she is still fairly new to lacrosse (started playing 3 years ago) she has proven to be a top midfielder in the area.   Payton will bring focus and determination to Bloomsburg and will be a valuable asset on the field and in the locker room for the team.

In the spring, Payton plays lacrosse at Kingsway Regional High School and also competes on the girls soccer team.  

Once again, congrats to Payton and her parents- Kendra and Matt.
