About Us

CT Chargers provides committed players with an opportunity to succeed on and off the playing field. Our focus is on player development and developing a love for the game.

For our younger players (grades 4-6) our focus is to teach the fundamentals of the game for each position in a positive supportive environment; to develop team concepts and Lax IQ and to help players understand what it takes to move on to the next level of competition. Our program is competitive but fun. Our coaches are positive and supportive of each player’s individual growth.

Middle school teams (grades 7-8) follow the same philosophy as above with an increase in intensity and focus on advanced skill sets and team concepts to prepare players for High School lacrosse.  Practices for this age groups are run at the same pace and with the same level of intensity as high school practices.

Our high school teams (grades 9-11) are most competitive and are keenly focused on individual player development as well as advanced team concepts while maintaining the same philosophy and level of support. Our mission is to prepare our players for a successful and rewarding high school lacrosse career and college lacrosse career if they so choose. In addition to on-field preparation, our personalized program services provide one-on-one and small group consultations tailored services to help families navigate through the pitfalls of collegiate recruiting.
