OUR MISSION

MISSION

The Seahawks Lacrosse Club is dedicated to providing an extraordinary experience for members by teaching the sport of lacrosse utilizing the guiding principles of Long-Term Athlete Development.


WORK HARD  |  GET BETTER  |  HAVE FUN    


VISION 

Through the utilization of the Long-Term Athlete Development Model, the Seahawks Lacrosse Club will continue to grow recreational lacrosse in Sarasota and Charlotte Counties (North Sarasota, the City of Sarasota, Venice, North Port, and Port Charlotte).  The sport of lacrosse (girls and boys) will be implemented into most area high schools by the year 2021 as a Varsity/sanctioned sport, competing in the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA).  As a result, there will be a quantitative and qualitative increase in College/University bound lacrosse players and young athletes from our area. Young men and women will matriculate from the Seahawks Lacrosse Club to play lacrosse and other sports for collegiate programs (NCAA Division I, II, III, MCLA & WCLA) around the Country. The Greater Sarasota County area will host tournaments, collegiate and secondary school level off-season training for teams from around the Country.  The pool of highly qualified, US Lacrosse Level 1, 2 and 3 certified coaches will increase.  The availability of Certified US Lacrosse Officials will also continue to increase. Volunteerism will continue to be one of our Club's cornerstones.  Club leadership will continue to create opportunities for high school age players to earn service hours toward high school graduation and Florida Bright Futures scholarships.

OUR HISTORY

Established in 2010, the Manasota Lacrosse Club, Inc. (MLC) is a 501(C) (3) non-profit organization; therefore, all revenue generated is invested back into the program.  In an effort to achieve brand consistency, MLC is officially doing business as (DBA) the Seahawks Lacrosse Club, Inc. and still maintains its 501(C) (3) status.  The Seahawks encompasses both boys and girls lacrosse opportunities for ages 8U through High School and post-graduate.

The Seahawks recruit, train and maintain a highly qualified coaching staff, with collegiate and post-collegiate lacrosse experience, recreation/youth/middle school/high school/World Team coaching experience, professional personal training experience, and advanced educational degrees.  

Today, all of our coaches have up-to-date background screening and many are certified by US Lacrosse.  The Seahawks Lacrosse Club is governed by a Board consisting of local business leaders, parents, and lacrosse admirers.
