Xcelerate Nike Cleveland Lacrosse Club

With instruction as its foundation, the Xcelerate Nike Lacrosse Club is a select team program designed for players looking to develop their skills beyond the spring season. Our focus is player development and lacrosse education.

As an organization we target lacrosse players who are not only committed to improving their skills, but who also show a selfless dedication to teamwork, a willingness to be coached, and an appreciation for the importance of good citizenship and strong character.
 
Players in our program will participate in nationally competitive tournaments and attend high performance clinics and camps instructed by professional players and collegiate coaches.
 
As former collegiate and professional players ourselves, we understand the dedication it takes to play at an elite level.  We look forward to sharing our knowledge, experience, and passion for lacrosse with young men who are enthusiastic about reaching their full potential.

Player Development

When it comes to player development, the Xcelerate Nike Lacrosse Club is all about training the total package. That means players who can shoot, pass, dodge, defend, pick up a groundball, and check. We’ll never just show up to tournaments and roll the ball out. In our practices and training sessions, we’ll employ a wide variety of drills to bolster our players’ strengths, confidence, and team play.

TRYOUT INFO

Our 2015 teams will be formed based on Graduation Year.  Both returning Xcelerate members and new players MUST ATTEND a minimum of one tryout to be considered for a roster spot. Players are highly encouraged to attend both tryout dates. The tryout is free for returning players and is $25 for new players.

Very impressive!

Just a quick note to let you know how impressed we are with our son’s Xcelerate experience so far. Watching the first 2 sessions and listening to the coaches was exactly the type of thing I hoped my son would be involved in. The coaches were always positive, always nice and explained what they wanted in a way my son really responds to. He came off the field enthused, ready to work on what he was taught and looking forward to the next session.
