What we do
Founded in 2007, The Turtles are committed to providing the best training in the sport. Our players are offered a year-round training program for the fall, winter, spring and summer season. We believe strongly in the multi-sport athlete and the only requirement, if selected for one of our organization’s elite summer teams, is participation in the summer program. We do not discourage other sport opportunities that will develop a player’s player profile. While many programs focus on physical training we heavily emphasize the mental aspects of the game. 90% of success on a Lacrosse field comes from between the ears and we believe in teaching the game the right way
Our program is tried and true and we have seen the results throughout the years:
In the spring of 2017, FIVE Turtles players consisted of ALL the Long Island UNDER ARMOUR All-Americans from Long Island, with one Turtle player named MVP to the Senior Under Armour All-American game, which aired on ESPN featuring the nation’s top 44 high school seniors in the country.
In Addition to the UA ALL Americans the Turtles boasted:
6 HS ALL Americans
12 All County selections
3 First team All Metro
7 second team All metro
1 Nassau County player of the year

Every Turtle plays every game and every Turtle contributes. No Exceptions.
We play 2 fall and 3 summer tournaments with local travel.
The Turtles program is build on player development. Our only goal is to make our players better. We believe that practice and training is what will prepare our players for the next level.
Our year long programs includes a consistent offering of practices and development session throughout the year. Generally we offer 1 session a week throughout the fall and winter and 2 session a week as things begin to heat up through the summer time. We understand that people play multiple sports and we encourage multi sport athletes so we are understand the commitment to the in-season sports, but during the summer we expect commitment to our program. We aim to give our players the most opportunities to put the stick in their hands and get better.
With our Coaches coming from the highest level and in tune with the trend of the lacrosse world we can offer the most modern, relevant practices available. Every practice and training session will be new and we offer an intense, fun experience for our players that develop them both mentally and physically.
Lacrosse has become the most overplayed and under practiced sport with tournaments and championships becoming the focus of clubs teams success. Our goal is create and develop well rounded lacrosse players. Tournaments to us are the reward for the hard work that has been put in throughout the year
