May 11, 2017
LeagueApps Lax welcomes four new partners on the platform this month- Big 4 Lax, Lax Federation (LAXFed), Mad Dog Lacrosse, and the Minnesota Loons.
Combined, the new partnerships include over 91 boys and girls teams, nearly 10 tournaments and showcases per year, and dozens of camps and clinics in over 10 different states.
Here are a few notes about each of the new partner clubs and their programs.
Big 4 Lacrosse was founded in 2014 by Billy McKinney, with the goal of promoting high-level competition among youth lacrosse players in the Philadelphia area. The motto of Big 4 is “We help Great Kids become Great Players.”
Big 4 hosts several programs for both boys and girls, including tournaments, camps, and clinics. Their elite travel teams are named the Big 4 HHH- Head, Heart, Hustle. Colleen Magarity is the Director of the Girls Program and is most excited about the LeagueApps solution for a new website.
The Lacrosse Federation is a homegrown organization that promotes individual talent and teams with partnerships, events, and showcases. LAXFed serves as a network between club programs, college coaches, and high school recruits.
The LAXFed members include Brotherhood Lacrosse, Burning River, Catamount Lacrosse, Evergreen Lacrosse, GP Select, MD Wolfpack, Maryland Xtreme, Silverbacks Lacrosse, and Team Buffalo.
Mad Dog Lacrosse was founded in New Jersey the summer of 2006 by Bill Duerr, a former Marist lacrosse player and coach. Founding Mad Dog summer lacrosse camps was his way of passing on his passion for the game to young players.
By 2016, Mad Dog expanded to California offering camps, clinics, travel teams, and box training for both boys and girls. The mission statement of Mad Dog Lacrosse reads, “Mad Dog aims to provide a one of a kind lacrosse experience. Our mission is to create a positive learning environment combined with high-level instruction fueled by a passion for the game and life itself.”
The program was originated as the Minnesota Chill in 2000 by Mark Hellenack and by 2002, it was renamed the Loons. They are proud to be the longest running club program in the state of Minnesota.
The program just opened up a 1,200 square foot training facility, equipped with over 8,000 feet of new sand/rubber field turf, a state of the art weight training area, radar gun screens, and numerous 3x, box, and fields goals.
