In recent years, summer events have become a primary opportunity for players seeking to develop their skills and experience. Geronimo has decided to organize several travel or club teams aimed at providing our current and former players the chance to gain from these events.
Geronimo Lacrosse is excited to announce the details of our 2015 Summer Travel Program!
This coming summer we will be offering the following teams for both boys and girls:
9/10 - rising 5th graders
U13 White - rising 6th graders
U13 Blue - rising 7th graders
All six of our teams will be attending Lax Splash in Baltimore, MD the weekend of May 29-31
The U13 teams (boys and girls) will also be attending Sun & Surf in Virginia Beach, VA the weekend of June 13-14.
We are in the process of securing coaches and working out practice schedules, and will release more specifics in the coming months.
All participants will be grouped by both ability and age
Geronimo coaches, including Division I and Division III college players, will follow a disciplined approach to teaching fundamental lacrosse skills. Some areas of focus include: shooting, feeding, stick protection, dodging, defense, etc.
With a maximum coach to camper ratio of 8:1, we provide outstanding instruction in building the fundamentals essential to success at the youth level and beyond.
All participants must be current members of US Lacrosse (those who participated in Geronimo during Spring 2014 are current members).
Players must provide all equipment, including mouthpieces.

Geronimo Lacrosse is a youth lacrosse league owned and operated by Collegiate School for boys and girls in grades 1-6. Founded in 1995, Geronimo Lacrosse teaches fundamentals and provides organized team play for area youth. Our mission is to expose children to the fun game of lacrosse while nurturing individual and team skills with a consistent emphasis on sportsmanship. Over 900 players and 100 high school students and adult volunteers participate in Geronimo programs during each spring season.
Our hallmark is the excellent teaching provided by Geronimo coaches, who are volunteers typically with significant college and/or high school playing experience. The schedule for the coming season is posted in mid -November every year. We offer a spring "in-house" youth league for first through sixth grade girls and limited summer travel opportunities for fourth - eleventh grade girls and fourth-ninth grade boys. We offer no league play for the fall or winter.
