Program Overview

Mass Elite is a competitive lacrosse club for girls in grades 3 through 12.  Founded in 1999, Mass Elite is the oldest girls lacrosse club in Massachusetts.  For over twenty years, Mass Elite has offered young women the opportunity to compete with and against the best players in New England and all over the country.  Mass Elite provides year-round training through practices, tournaments and supplemental league play that caters to multi-sport athletes.  The players that succeed in our program recognize that their skill and athletic development is directly proportionate to their commitment to Mass Elite.  Below is a general program overview which details our practice, tournament and league play opportunities and commitments.  Click the buttons below to learn more.  

 

 

 

PRACTICES

Mass Elite players receive approximately 65 to 75 hours of practice each year.  Goal keepers receive an additional 30 hours of position-specific training throughout the year.  Players practice with their entire year of graduation.  In order to increase convenience for all of our families, we host practices at a variety of high schools, athletic facilities, and indoor sports centers in Massachusetts.  View general practice schedules by season below to get an idea of our practice locations throughout the year.  Click here to view our archived practice schedules from previous years.

TOURNAMENTS

Mass Elite attends both local and national events.  We attend tournaments that offer all formats including small-sided play (3v3, 4v4), full-field play (12v12) and those intended for recruiting.   Tournament selections are offered seasonally.  (Youth players will receive four seasons of tournament opportunities.  There are no tournament selections available to high school players in the spring as to avoid conflict with high school schedules and team commitments.)  Our tournaments are offered “à la carte” and are selected at the discretion of each participant.  We suggest that players participate in as many tournaments as their schedule allows.  In general, it is our recommendation that players select two to five tournaments a season.  Click here to view our archived tournament schedules to get an idea of the events we attend each season.

 

Because tournaments are offered “à la carte,” rosters will fluctuate.  At the youth level, this is extremely important so that players get to know and play with everyone in their year of graduation.  Players will be coached by many of our extremely experienced and dedicated staff.  Our staff is made up of elite high school and college coaches, along with former Mass Elite players and college standouts.  We believe it is important to learn from all of our coaches each of whom will offer different feedback and instruction.

LEAGUE PLAY

Mass Elite believes that “practice really does make perfect.”  The more play opportunities that one can take advantage of, the faster the rate of development.  Mass Elite offers supplemental league play throughout the entire year which is hosted by Achievelax.  League play in the fall, winter and summer features a 7v7 format.  In the spring, league play is full-field 12v12.  Mass Elite team members can register for supplemental league play on their seasonal tournament registration.
