2018-2019 HEADstrong Quakers Tryouts!

HEADstrong Quakers Lacrosse Club is excited to announce the first round of tryouts for the 2018-2019 season! We will be holding tryouts to evaluate prospective players on Monday, July 16th at Radnor High School from 5-6:30pm (2023-2026) and 6:30-8pm (2020-2022) and our tryouts will be run by the HEADstrong Quakers staff, consisting of Division I and Division III college coaches from the Philadelphia area.

About HEADstrong Quakers

We are a club that prioritizes three things above all else:

  • Coaching: All of our teams are lead by a College Coach, ensuring that players are given the best instruction possible, and giving our older boys a leg up in the recruiting process.
  • Improvement: With great coaching comes improvement, and we want our boys to focus on the process of becoming a better lacrosse player rather than short-term shortcuts to win at the expense of improvement.
  • Fun:Lacrosse is the best sport out there, and it should be FUN. We believe that as long as players are working hard, getting excellent coaching and having fun, they’ll want to play this game for a long time and reach their potential.

Everything we do supports the HEADstrong Foundation and their goal to support famliies affected by Cancer, and we always want to represent the Foundation with the highest quality people and families we can!
