True Lacrosse West Warriors Program

True Lacrosse West Warriors Home Page


True Lacrosse is committed to the expansion and progression of lacrosse. Our combined knowledge, experience, and passion allow us to offer the best service, products, and guidance necessary to further develop the fastest game on two feet. Our mission is to spread the game of lacrosse throughout the entire Midwest and onto areas of the country where lacrosse has not been fully embraced. We understand that lacrosse is a lifestyle not a hobby and we value the dedication required to excel in this sport.

We are excited to begin another successful season at True Lacrosse with our travel teams! The True Lacrosse difference allows players to gain expert knowledge of the game from our experienced coaching staff, all of whom have played at the collegiate level. We practice more than any other club team in the region, and specifically design our practices to mirror the pace and structure of a Division I program.

This year, all True Lacrosse teams will again travel to some of the best tournaments in the nation, giving each player the opportunity to be seen by many college coaches. Finally, as a True Lacrosse player, you are part of the True family. If you wish to continue playing at the collegiate level, we will provide you with thorough guidance throughout the entire recruiting process to help you gain entry to a school where you will be challenged, happy, and ultimately successful.

New To The True West Program?

For all new players entering our program we are offering a free personal evaluation. The evaluation will take roughly 25 mins (skills & evaluation) and will cover wall ball, catching, passing, shooting and athletic ability. A quick assessment will let us tell you areas of your game that need improvement and ways to improve those aspects. Email me or call to set up your free personal evaluation at 630-204-9349 or!
