Regional Clinic Series Announced

 

After 5 years in the club business and over 20 years of recruiting experience, what we have learned is that the players in our area have the ability to compete athletically with those players in "hot bed" areas, but our fundamental skill level is behind. When you increase the speed of the game, our skill work also begins to deteriorate significantly.  Our 5 week series is dedicated to the development and enhancement of each player's fundamental skill set.  Our all female staff will focus on the art of ground balls, checking, dodging, shooting, individual defense, draw work, small set work, and more.  The 90 minute clinic is designed to fine tune the basics, and challenge players with advanced skill technique!  NEW FOR 2017, each session will have a 30 minute coached playing opportunity.

Sessions will be fast paced to encourage a lot of touches and reps!
All groups will be age and skill set appropriate!

TWO LOCATIONS!
NORTH:  Seneca Valley High School, Meyers Law Group Stadium (Turf)
SOUTH:  Peter's Township High School, Pleasant Valley Stadium (Turf)

PPLC places 15 players on the Western PA National Team

The annual US Lacrosse Women's National Tournament will take place this year at Yale University in New Haven, CT on Memorial Day weekend.  This event is held in conjunction with the NCAA Division I Final Four.  With nearly 70 regional teams competeing each year, the National Tournament has become a marquee recruiting event to kick off the summer tournament season.  This year, the Western PA team will be competing in the Cayuga Division.  Twenty two players were selected from try-outs to represent our area.  The team will be coached by Mt. Lebanon Head Coach, Brian Kattan.

We want to congratulate the 15 players from Premier that made the team!
This marks the 3rd consecutive year that Premier players have made up over 60% of the National team!
Best of Luck in Connecticut and represent the 'burgh well!

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
