Our Premier Team Program is designed to provide girls with the highest skill set to play high-level collegiate prep lacrosse. The Premier Team has a commitment level with practices Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays during the 2022 Summer Season. The three practices a week (up from the two practices our other teams commit to) allows girls to get to know each other even better, learn their teammate's tendencies, bond as a team, and sharpen their skills against other Lakers with the same goals.
 
Throughout the 2021/22 season, our players will engage in highly beneficial leadership and service workshops with the goals of developing our young people to be successful in lacrosse and in life. 
 
Premier Team will attend highly competitive tournaments and showcases with one on the East Coast, one in the Midwest, and one in the Western United States.  The Premier Team will be placed in divisions at tournaments/showcases that will challenge and push our players to be at their best while providing maximum exposure to college coaches. The three required tournaments (tournament schedule will be finalized once tournaments have released their dates):
 
  1. IWLCA Midwest Cup or IWLCA New England Cup depending on dates and MSHSL State Tournament/Season.
  2. Western Shootout Out - July 8, 9, and 10 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
  3. The Showdown in Naperville, Ill. or Middle of the Map in Kansas City, Kan. - July 22, 23, and 24. 

To help ensure that the Premier Team is able to compete at a high level, team members are strongly encouraged to participate in off-season training (Fall Ball and Winter Skills).
