Premier Open Positions

 
Premier Open Team Positions
 
This year is our first year offering year round training opportunities at Premier!  We will be using the winter to identify and evaluate players to fill open positions in our high school teams as well as build our youth programs.   In order to be evaluated, please send an interest email to pghpremierlacrosse@gmail.com.  We will schedule a date during our winter indoor sessions for all interested players to be evaluated.
We offer a 50% refund on the deposit for another club should a family decide to make the change after they have deposited.  
 
Open Team Positions:
  • 2020: 2 field
  • 2021: 2 field
  • 2022: 1 field
  • 2023: 4 field
  • 2024*:  7 to 10 field 
  • 2025*: wide open
  • 2026*: wide open
  • 2027/2028*: wide open
 
*Youth Programming Note:  Please read if your daughter is a 2024 through 2028 player!
Our initial try outs were held in August and based on skill and numbers we offered two "travel" teams, a 24/25 team and a 24/25/26 team that competed in this fall.  These rosters were fluid and all practices were held together.  We will be using the winter to identify and evaluate players so that we can field  two 24 teams, a 25 team, a 26 team, and a 27/28 (short field) team that will travel with us this summer.   These rosters will be fluid based on skill level, development through our programming, and attendance.  That being said, we strongly believe that at the youth level, teams should be created based on skill first, then numbers participating, and checking level determined by tournament.

Who we are and what makes us different...
The idea is really simple, as three current Division I college coaches we recognized a need in Pittsburgh to contribute to the growth of girl's lacrosse in the area.  So one day over lunch we decided the best way to get involved was to run our own club program.  Yes, it would have been easier to get involved with the already established local organizations but honestly we didn't feel that we would be able to put the quality product that we had envisioned into fruition. 

That was were Pittsburgh Premier was born.   As college coaches we are 100 percent committed to the fundamental growth of each player, honest evaluations of skills and placement within the program, and lastly a forthright and comprehensive recruiting service as you head towards navigating the college process. 

With over 40 collective years in the college lacrosse ranks, and serving at various academic institutions each of us brings a unique set of skills within teaching lacrosse to every age group.  But honestly we don't expect you to just believe us, we invite you to come to practice and see for yourself!  Our staff will be available after to discuss any questions you might have about Pittsburgh Premier and why we might be the right fit for your family.

Sincerely,
Katrina, Mike and Katy
