What Separates Burning River Lacrosse?
Our Dedication, Our Instruction, Our Network, Our Focus and Our Achievements
Burning River Lacrosse was founded in 2005 with 3 coaches and 11 players. From the start, we have dedicated ourselves to providing developmental lacrosse opportunities at all levels (introduction to the game, improvement of skills, national competition and college exposure) to Northern Ohio’s lacrosse community only. This has allowed us to grow Burning River to from those original 11 players to having served over 5,000 players.
Because of this dedication, Burning River was recently honored. Dick’s Sporting Goods has selected Burning River Lacrosse as one of only five youth sports organizations in the United States that deserve to be spotlighted on the Dick’s Sporting Goods soon to come “Community” section of their website. BR was selected because of the success of our efforts to grow lacrosse in NE Ohio (over 5,000 players have come through the program) and due to the work done in the community through the Crosse Out Cancer Fundraiser (raised over $118,000 for Breast Cancer Research) and Fisher House Lacrosse Fundraiser (raised $364,000+ to support the families of severely wounded an/or ill military service members).
Over the years we have seen many clubs try to copy our instruction, practice plans and skills work but none have been able to have the success we have had. This is because of our professional staff, dedicated coaches, and ‘Burning River Way’™ philosophy. Our ‘‘Burning River Way’™ is a unique training and development system unavailable at any other club program. It is composed of our practice plans, skills focus and developmental offerings designed in conjunction with college coaches and exclusive to Burning River Lacrosse. This allows us to develop our players to their full potential. To learn more about our ‘‘Burning River Way’™ please see the Our Instruction document by clicking here.
Our travel team players and their parents can depend on us to provide them with coaching, guidance, encouragement and support during the entire college recruiting process. Unlike some other travel team club programs, Burning River Lacrosse has a proven track record when it comes to helping players reach their college lacrosse goals (160+ players at 75+ colleges). Simply put, we help provide you with the skills, knowledge and network to help you make the best, most informed decision about what college to attend. To learn more about our college recruiting process please see the Our Network document by clicking here.
We are successful because of our ability to develop top level players and get them recruited. We have this ability because we only offer 1 team per graduation year. This allows us to know your son and to focus all of our resources and efforts on helping him achieve his full potential unlike pyramid programs that are focused on the volume number of players in their program.
Other club programs will tell you what their coaches have accomplished. We prefer to tell you about what our players have accomplished. It is not that our coaches are slouches, they are some of the best, it is just that we prefer to focus on the success we have had with players. This is because we believe you are more interested in knowing how successful we are at what you are hiring us to do.
