Teaching Philosophy

We have a very simple formula: 

Develop young men of character first! The winning will take care of itself.

We love the game. We love to teach the game. We also believe in using lacrosse to build character, work ethic and teach life-long lessons. At Blue Star, our mission is to develop great young lacrosse players and great young men.  We want our players to be equipped to play at the highest levels of lacrosse and also to be able to overcome any obstacles and adversity they face in life. At the youth level, we do not worry about "winning", rather we believe in teaching and creating the best players/teams possible. Through doing this, the winning will take care of itself. By the time our players enter high school, they have the foundation laid to be elite competitors and the tools to be more than ready for the recruiting process.

Outstanding Coaching

We believe in teaching athletes how to be great lacrosse players. We want to develop players that will be good in any environment and on any team. This means players with great stick skills and intimate knowledge of the game. With this foundational knowledge, we then teach players how to make great decisions

We also believe that it is very important to not just have coaches who are great lacrosse players, we believe that they should be great role models as well. Our staff is carefully picked to give our campers extremely knowledgeable coaches that you would like your sons to look up to. 

Year-Round Training Model

At Blue Star, we offer training opportunities year round for our all-stars and for anybody else who wants to improve their game! While we want our players to play as many sports as possible, we also want to offer programming for players who want to keep a stick in their hand and get better!
