Editor’s Note: I sent each club team in Utah an email asking for a fact sheet/press release about their team. Over the next week we will be publishing a few more of these from the clubs that have responded.
Wasatch Lacrosse Club is made up of a distinctive group of young men who are each hand-picked for their on-field talents and off-field display of character. Players are selected from across the state of Utah to showcase their abilities to NCAA and MCLA coaches at the highly competitive tournaments we attend. To be a member of Wasatch Lacrosse Club you must strive to play lacrosse at the highest level and always play selfless, with a team first mentality. You must also represent the community you live in and high school you attend with a sense of pride and responsibility.
Our mission is to provide a distinct advantage in College Recruiting to players on our club over other teams. We go the extra miles with filming our games, recording stats, clipping highlight films, emailing and calling college programs for you, and so on. Hard work, fun, and dedicated coaching are the foundation of Wasatch Lacrosse Club. Developing friendships between players and parents from various schools and communities are a key factor to the “Satch Lax” experience.
• Promote the sport of lacrosse at a high level of competition and promote our players.
• Have individuals who are better people than they are lacrosse players.
• Team recognition, player recognition, prepare for collegiate experience.
