Lacrosse is Our Sport, The Bulldogs Are Our Family

Our Program

Mesa Red (formerly Olde English Lacrosse)  is the area's only travel lacrosse a program specifically designed to evolve 3rd to 8th grade boys into exceptional high school players.  Powered by a multi-year development plan, we provide players  the opportunity to be challenged throughout the year and focus on -

  • Fostering passion for the game of lacrosse
  • Developing individual skills while learning to excel within a system
  • Preparing for the next level while maintaining the right perspective
  • Never losing sight of having fun

Our Philosophy

The growth of travel sports programs have brought many new experiences to families, but all too often they force a player to make a commitment at the expense of other activities.

We believe that passionate, talented lacrosse players are best created out of a variety of experiences that balance with other youth sports.

Our coaches are focused developing balanced, coachable youth players that excel in a team environment and are leaders on and off the field.

 

Our Promise

To Strengthen Community Lacrosse Programs through fostering excitement and passion in youth players.

Mesa Red Lacrosse builds on your son’s Township and/or Recreational team experience – NOT a replacement.  While we practice and play together from the fall though the summer, our players and coaches are leaders in the growth of their local recreational lacrosse programs.

From hosting learn to play clinics to coaching summer development teams, every Mesa Red coach and player gives back to the game.

While Staying Loyal to Growing the Game
