True Lacrosse travel teams are designed to accommodate players of all skill levels. We offer the highest quality education of lacrosse, providing the most elite level of coaching available. We offer more practices than other club teams and guarantee competitive tournament play. This carefully crafted method provides an unparalleled level of competition and allows our players to continuously improve, resulting in more college commitments than any other club program in the region. We train more, IT MATTERS!

History

In 2008, Jake Deane and Mike Gabel, both accomplished college and professional lacrosse players, founded True Lacrosse with a simple goal in mind: to share their knowledge and love of the game with young players to help them understand and play the game at the highest level possible. Since that time, Jake, Mike and their team of experienced coaches and directors have done just that. In addition to their responsibilities at the True Lacrosse offices, both owners are on the fields with their players for every practice, crossing the country with the travel teams to attend the best tournaments, and continuing to fulfill the mission they envisioned years ago. After its establishment and overwhelming success in Illinois, True Lacrosse went on to found markets across the United States and Canada, making it one of the largest and most successful club lacrosse programs in the nation.

Our Mission

True Lacrosse is committed to the education and development of young men and women in the sport of lacrosse. Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive training and experience to create exceptional athletes, while instilling confidence, integrity, and leadership skills they can employ both on and off the field. Driven by our four pillars - Passion, Energy, Expertise, and Reps - our staff combine knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm, allowing us to offer the best service, products, and guidance necessary to further develop the fastest game on two feet.
