“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.” – Derek Jeter
The benefit of being on a Elite Team is not measured in the tournaments attended, the jerseys worn or traveling done. It is measured in the time and effort you put in and practice is where success begins. Wisconsin Elite teams are about committing to time on the practice field and getting better day by day. We create value in our program by offering continuity throughout the year with a venue to work hard and learn.
Our players are asked to commit time over the span of the year to get better at lacrosse. We don't ask our athletes to quit their other sports, but rather encourage them to continue fall and winter sports. We do ask them to push themselves a little harder by giving us a day in the depths of winter to pick up a stick and start working on what will win us games when we travel to our respective tournaments.
Traveling teams are nothing new in Wisconsin, however, the year-round approach is less common. Giving our players a whole year to be together, we can truly develop them and help them achieve their full potential.
Lacrosse is a sport where time off is time lost.
