From Press Release
Team Elevate, one of the nation’s premier girl’s only travel lacrosse programs, has acquired New England United (NEU), a girls’ travel lacrosse program based out of Providence, Rhode Island.
Team Elevate will offer its complete suite of services including recruiting, college preparation, lacrosse training, camps, clinics and other service to all of the NEU families. The staff of NEU will all remain as part of the new program and all operations will be run out of the Team Elevate offices in New York along with local support in Rhode Island.
“We are committed to delivering the best value to our families and our players and this is an exciting opportunity for us to expand into the New England market with proven leaders and coaches,” said Dave Kotowski, the co-founder of Team Elevate. “It is our belief that lacrosse is currently being overplayed and undercoached.
“Our goal is to deliver some of the best coaches to our families and let those coaches coach while we handle all of the administrative duties of running a successful club program.”
NEU was founded by Keely McDonald and Jill DePetris who are both current Division 1 Head Women’s Lacrosse Coaches. The current staff of NEU includes current college coaches, high school coaches and former standout players. “We understand the role that club lacrosse can play in the development of girls as student athletes and leaders in their community,” said Kotowski. “Team Elevate has the same goals and objectives as NEU and we felt that we are a perfect match to deliver a world class club to all of our families.”
Team Elevate plays a crucial role in student athlete development and exposure to top college programs for its families. Team Elevate has hosted SAT Tutor Classes, a New England College Bus Tour (Yale, UCONN, Boston College, Harvard, Boston University, Bryant, Brown, Connecticut College and Fairfield), one-on-one family recruiting sessions, and provides all of its players with a written evaluation at the end of each season. Players are also provided access to individual and group training (Goalie Clinics, Draw Clinics, Shooting Clinics and Speed and Strength Training), teaching
camps and they have also partnered with other college coaches to run “next level” camps.
The next available tryout date for the new Team Elevate program in New England is Wednesday September 10th. Go to www.TeamElevateLax.com to register your
