Why Club lacrosse?
Playing for a club team offers several benefits for a youth athlete compared to playing for a recreational team, such as:
- Higher level of Competition: Club teams usually participate in higher level leagues and tournaments, where athletes can face stronger opponents, allowing them to challenge themselves and improve their skills.
- Professional Coaching: Club teams usually have professional coaches who provide specialized training and guidance to athletes, which can lead to faster development and better performance.
- Practice and Game Schedule: Club teams usually have a more consistent practice and game schedule, which helps athletes to develop good habits, routines, and time management skills.
- College Recruiting: Playing for a club team can provide more exposure to college and professional scouts, which can increase an athlete's chances of being recruited.
- Team bonding and socialization: Club teams often provide more opportunities for team bonding and socialization than recreational teams, as they may travel together for games and tournaments, and participate in team-building activities.
