For Immediate Release – Wasatch LC
Wasatch Lacrosse Club is a distinctive group of young men who are each handpicked for their on-field talents and off-field display of character by coaches Danny Larkin, Ricky Larkin, and Adam Eddinger. 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.

- How did your interaction with the coaching staff begin? Did they see you play and contact you or did you send highlight film? Coach Thon emailed me the day after he was hired at ASU. I’m still not actually sure how he found out about me. He gave me his number and asked me to call him. He watched my film and asked me if I would be interested in going on a visit. Then on my visit I kind of just fell in love with everything.
- What advice do you have for players who are aspiring to play Lacrosse in college? Nobody is going to hand you opportunities. You have to create them yourself by working hard to be the best player you can be.

Wasatch Lacrosse Club’s 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.
