LTLC- Lutherville-Timonium Lacrosse Club- Boys
Our Philosophy and Approach
Let’s face it, Club Lacrosse has gotten out of control. At its highest levels, the focus is on teams rather than players, oftentimes at the expense of player development OR, it’s a matter of bringing the club experience to the B/C level player for an exorbitant cost with limited playing time. It’s an unsustainable path that is not benefiting the game or most importantly the player.
LTLC wants to provide a club option for our talented players so they can stay in the program and play with their friends and classmates in our Community Based Club Model.
We can offer resources that are equal to or better than local club organizations at much more reasonable costs by leveraging our access to Baltimore County Recreation and Parks fields, including lighted turf fields.
In addition, we want our players to be afforded the opportunity to play at a high level while still being able to participate in other sports.
We are committed to having the best coaches that put player development first and the national team rankings last and we will have all US Lacrosse Certified Coaches that are invested in the game, your kids and LTLC.
Finally, we want to educate and provide parents with some perspective as they look into more competitive options for their kids while dispelling the notion that private club teams are the only option. Click here to read an article that every Lax Parent should know by USA Lacrosse.
If kids are not selected for the Club team, they will be welcome to play for our Rec teams which offer opportunities to play based on age and ability.
