We’re about Quality over Quantity…
We only have one elite team per age group… no “B” or “C” level teams. We believe that keeping our club small ensures that no player falls through the cracks or gets lost in the shuffle. Fewer teams also ensures that we can hire top quality coaches, and don’t have to resort to “dad” or “mom” coaches to fill our coaching needs.
We’re run by women and coached by women…all of our coaches are strong and athletic, who have played or are currently playing the game, most at the Division 1 level. We strive to be the best of role models for our players…we don’t underestimate the impact we have on our girls.
Because we’re not affiliated with any one high school or school system, our players come to us from a wide variety of public and private high school and middle school programs. From Allatoona and North Paulding High Schools on the northwest side of Atlanta, to Mill Creek and North Forsyth High Schools on the northeast side of the city, we have players from 25 different school systems. This provides our players with the opportunity to play with the best players from throughout Atlanta, not just players from their specific geographical area of the city, or just from their high school program. This diversity of players creates a well-rounded, positive, and competitive environment for everyone.
Our focus at the Middle School Level is purely developmental, teaching girls to be better lacrosse players and teammates, and preparing them to play in high school. We teach our girls how to play lacrosse as the free-flowing, fast paced game it was intended to be–we don’t just rely on set, pre-programmed plays. We want our players to be adaptable and able to play in any setting, not just on a SoZo team.
Our high school players are taught the finer points of the game, and are being prepared to play at the collegiate level. Personalized recruiting services are available to each of our high school players, with a recruiting counselor assigned to each girl to assist in navigating the complicated (and sometime frustrating!) college recruiting process. Our recruiting counselors have facilitated the recruitment of players at University of Connecticut, Furman University, Vanderbilt University,Winthrop University, Kennesaw State University, Arizona State University, Presbyterian College, SUNY Albany, Florida Southern, Butler University, Liberty University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Radford University, among many others.
