Phoenix, AZ-- The Arizona Youth Lacrosse League (AYLL) is proud to announce the addition of the Phoenix Lacrosse Club (PLC) as its newest member to the League.
Club co-founders, James Fishman, Arik Michelson, and Jim Lofton, recognized the need to expand the lacrosse footprint in the Phoenix area thus attracting new players for development towards high school participation. The affiliation of Phoenix Patriots Lacrosse and Arcadia Dragons Lacrosse to form the PLC will allow the new Club to field three teams in its inaugural 2014 season. Two middle school programs (Div 1 and Div 2) and an elementary 3/4th grade program will compete in the AYLL. Head Coaches will be announced shortly. Practices will occur under the lights at Arcadia High School.
The Club co-founders are excited to see the transition of the program to a vertically integrated model allowing K-8th grade participation. The Club will have a common philosophy across all age groups teaching good lacrosse fundamentals, while imparting age appropriate skills. The founders have no doubt that the Phoenix Lacrosse Club will be recognized as the premiere program in the North Central and Camelback Corridor neighborhoods for preparing future Arizona high school lacrosse players.
