What People Say About Dragons:

Hi Gentlemen,

Just wanted to share how pumped Carter was after practice last night. To see the joy on Carter's face when he left practice and when I ask him: "Carter, do you want to go again next week?"  His reply: "Mom, can I cuss?" ...  "HELL YES!"
 
Just a huge shout out to you guys. What you do really impacts these kids. Thank you so much. See you next week.
 
Best, 
 
Lisa Hermes

2023 WINTER SEASON INFO

DRAGONS BOYS | 2023 WINTER SEASON INFO

 

We are ready to kick off our Winter 2023 season! See below for some important info to get you started, as well as registration details.

TEAMS - We will be running teams for the following grades:

Testimonials

"Dragons has been monumental in my growth as a player because they provided intense practices, encouraging coaching, and a family environment. The environment was unlike anything I had previously been a part of. Everyone wanted me to succeed and be happy, which made me want to play harder and get better."

Owen Gaffney - 2021

“Mason had a blast and loved playing with his buds and meeting some great new teammates as well. Bronson had a great time and learned a lot about being challenged with playing against bigger and older kids. Both have improved greatly from this season and your entire coaching staff, and I thank you for that. Every coach we came in contact with in your organization was top notch, friendly and great with the kids. Rarely do my boys say how much they liked the coaches in any sport they participate in. Here they regularly commented and recited things Coach Krum and Coach Max had told them. Thanks again and you have a great organization.” 

Matt Gavia

“I have had all 3 of my kids attend the HLT sessions.  My daughters are 16 and 12 years old and my son is 14.  Lindsey does an amazing job working on a variety of strength, speed, and agility but what I find the most enticing part of HLT is Lindsey’s focus on the mental approach.  Coach Lindsey stresses the importance of a positive attitude, what it takes to be a high performer such as getting a good night sleep and eating correctly.  HLT is so much more than just a workout, she is offering the participants a view into what made her a successful Division 1 athlete and it has been great for all three of my kids.”

Kevin Doyle

“Thank you, Lyndsey, for an inspiring and awesome HLT session yesterday! Dylan and Aidan had started off the afternoon resistant, reluctant, and frankly, unhappy about having to do more “conditioning” ... but both of them ended the session having had fun and looking forward to future sessions. Appreciate your encouragement and expertise.”

Malena Law

“My two kids are really enjoying Lyndsey’s Offseason HLT and attend weekly. What they like about her program is that they know they are getting a challenging workout but they don’t feel exhausted or drained from the sessions. They also appreciate Lyndsey’s interest in their self-care outside of the sessions, which has them focusing on nutrition and healthy habits. It is amazing that not only my daughter who is a Fire player but also my son can benefit from Lyndsey’s professional knowledge and passion for fitness and lacrosse. I think their commitment to the Offseason HLT program will greatly enhance their fitness levels when lacrosse tournaments commence this winter and it will make their tournament experiences all the more fulfilling.”

Katie Turnbull

SEE WHAT IS BEHIND THE TESTIMONIALS

New Players

We strive to make playing lacrosse as simple and affordable as possible. We hold free clinics throughout the year, offer new players a free trial session and provide free loaner gear. We even have a LaunchPad program that provides guidelines on how to get into lacrosse and at what time of the year.

Casey&Crew_Header2

Advanced Players

Over the last 6 years we have developed hundreds of boys into tournament level players and won close to 50 championships. Our high school boys compete at the highest level on the West Coast and are active in the recruiting process. The Dragons girls program serves as a development program and advanced players participate in Fire Lacrosse during tournament season.

The Annual Calendar

Dragons offers programming for boys and girls in K through 12 from September to the end of July. Fall is the best time of year to get started. In there winter we offer recreational and tournament teams, as well as high school recruiting for boys. In the spring we focus on participation in youth rec leagues. In the summer we are back to doing tournaments and traveling across the West and East Coast for recruiting events.

Player Development

We take a long-term approach to developing boys and girls into the best possible and well-rounded student athletes they can be; on and off the field. Our coaching staff is the most expansive and knowledgable in the area and our 360º Player Development curriculum provides the structure for a path from elementary school to through high school.

The Team Experience

Imagine a place where you can just come and be yourself. A place where you can take as much or as little time as you need to develop your skills. A place full of positive energy and support. A place that is inclusive and supportive and easy to make friends in. That is the essence of the Dragons Lacrosse team experience.

Events

We like to bring the lacrosse community together several times a year to just have fun or be part of a good cause. Every Halloween we host the Pumpkin Shoot on the beach in Santa Monica and we have several videos to show for it. Every June we host the Laps 4 Lax Fundraiser to bring everyone together for a fun and meaningful pre-summer event.
