TeamFLC - combines these four great programs into one great TEAM.
* Instruction - we have the most experienced and dedicated coaches in the country - with a long history of success at the NCAA, Club, High School & Youth levels.
* Recruiting - we provide over twenty five years of NCAA recruiting experience to help guide students and parents through the college recruiting process. The strong relationships that have been built with Men and Women college lacrosse coaches around the country, combined with the great reputation of Florida Lacrosse Camps, gives the TeamFLC students-athletes a significant advantage. Many TeamFLC players will go to the college of their choice having never been seen by the schools lacrosse coaches. Just a phone call or email with a recommendation from TeamFLC is all it took.
* Goal - we want to "keep raising the bar" by challenging our players to strive to be the best that they can be on and off the field. You can have it all and achieve your goals by being a great person, a great student and a great player.
