◊MC Elite rosters players to travel teams in Grades 3-11. Travel teams are designed for players who are ready to make a year-round commitment to lacrosse. We encourage our players to be multi-sport athletes but expect that lacrosse will be their priority during the spring and summer season. Each age group fields 2 teams – Midnight and Carolina.
◊Teams practice from September through the end of June with 8-10 tournaments a year. All practices are held at Stone Ridge School in Bethesda twice a week. Most tournaments are local in Maryland or Delaware, with the exception of some IWLCA events.
◊Fitness is an integral part of our player development model. All players in Grades 5-11 will be expected to run a timed-mile during tryouts.
◊MC Elite has multiple goalie coaches on staff who work with goalies both at their team practices and at separate goalie-only practices during the year.
◊MC Elite has placed over 200 girls onto collegiate teams and college recruiting assistance begins in 9th grade. MC Elite Founder & Executive Director, Jenna Ries, has been coaching in Montgomery County for over 20 years and has held Varsity coaching positions at Quince Orchard HS, B-CC HS and Academy of the Holy Cross. Many of our coaches also hold Varsity coach positions at local high schools and our players benefit from a wealth of coaching and recruiting experience during their time with the Club.
