How do we prepare you for the next level?
Are you looking for a program where the coach rolls out a ball, runs 6v6, some full field scrimmages, and that's practice?  You're looking in the wrong spot.  Jersey Thunder Lacrosse Academy is a player-oriented club team focused on improving individual skill, lacrosse IQ, and the necessary fundamentals to improve to the next level - whatever that may be for that particular student-athlete.  

Who can play?
Anyone may register.  You do not have to be enrolled in the Ath-Ed Lacrosse Leagues to play.  We are looking for student-athletes who are willing to work hard, love the game, and want to evolve to improve themselves as lacrosse player.

When is the season?
The season begins with our tryout on August 14th.  Practices will begin September 11th.  Our fall season runs until mid-November.  Winter team clinics will begin in December and run through February.  Our summer season will begin in early June, and run until mid-July.

What if I play Fall or Winter Sports?
Everything we do in the Fall or Winter is on Sunday.  As these are clinic-based practices, we will be focusing on improving stick skills, technique, and IQ.  Tournaments will also be on Sundays.  We encourage Fall and Winter athletes to play.
