Nonprofit Sports Organization Provides Year-Round Lacrosse Instruction in a Fun, Sportsmanlike Setting

In order to meet the growing demand of younger children interested in playing lacrosse, a group of active parents have formed a new lacrosse program, Lions Pride Sports Club, Inc. (LPSC). LPSC recently announced the launch of the Pride Lacrosse program, which offers year-round training and competition for children ages four to 14 in order to encourage and accommodate the long-term growth of lacrosse in the Longwood community.

The primary purpose of LPSC, a nonprofit sports organization, is to provide the youth within the Longwood community an opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport of lacrosse, as well as coordinated programs designed to bring community members together through general wellness and health and fitness activities, all in an atmosphere of exemplary sportsmanship and integrity. Its mission is to promote the game of lacrosse in a fun, safe and sportsmanlike environment by offering a year-round lacrosse program that is dedicated to the continuous skill development of all players and teaches a game of speed, position and finesse. Each participant, regardless of initial skill level, will have the opportunity to learn the game, develop individual skills and prepare for the next level of lacrosse.

“We are proud to offer this exciting and fun program to the lacrosse players in the Longwood community,” said David J Wolf, President, Lions Pride Sports Club, Inc. “In addition to the athletic benefits, we also seek to promote a supportive, inclusive community with programs designed to bring Longwood families together through general wellness, health and fitness and various volunteer activities.”

To kick things off, LPSC’s Lady Pride girls recently completed an eight-week indoor winter league at the All-Star Sports Arena in Selden, competing with many local teams, including Comsewogue, Middle Country, Miller Place, Rocky Point and Shoreham-Wading River. In addition, LPSC is currently hosting practice sessions multiple days of the week for various age groups at KK Athletics Indoor Sports in Farmingville, World Gym in Coram, and All Pro Fieldhouse in Setauket. Visit LPSC’s website www.lionspridelacrosse.usl.la for a full listing of practice sessions. Over the next several weeks, LPSC will be planning its competition schedule for both boys’ and girls’ programs through spring, summer and fall, including scrimmages, games and tournaments.

“Many of today’s youth sports programs are designed primarily for the sake of competition, which ultimately neglects the much-needed skill development aspect of the player’s growth. Lacrosse is a highly skillful sport and requires constant repetition of the proper form and fundamentals in order to experience consistent growth, which is why LPSC’s primary focus is the development of well-rounded athletes, who, above all else, exhibit exemplary character and sportsmanship on and off the field,” said Dorothy R Wolf and Sergio Cardenas, Vice President of Girls and Boys Lacrosse, Lions Pride Sports Club, Inc., respectively.

Registrants will receive full uniforms, a practice pinnie, and a Pride Lax T-shirt. Registration is currently available as two six-month sessions: Spring/Summer (April-September) and Fall/Winter (October-March) for $150 each or register for the year (January-December) at a discounted rate of $255. In addition, a Cub Corner Lacrosse package is available for players four to six years old or those who are new to the game and includes weekly practices for 12 months and a new stick all for the ultra-low cost of $100. LPSC also offers multi-player discounts.

“As a nonprofit, our goal is to offer ultra-affordable packages. While we want to encourage everyone to take advantage of our year round program we also understand that people prefer flexibility which is why we offer two six-month options.” said Lisa Lamitie, Treasurer, Lions Pride Sports Club, Inc.
