Defenders of Troy - Summer 2019

Defenders of Troy (DOT) is a summer travel program that is specifically designed for players at Lassiter High School and our feeder programs.  This program is led by Lassiter’s High School coaching staff and provides a great opportunity for youth players to meet and work with their future high school coaches. The coaching staff includes offensive, defensive and specialty coaches along with Lassiter alums currently playing in collegiate and club programs. Practices will focus on both individual and team skills and are structured similar to our varsity level practices. The DOT summer program provides a great opportunity to bring our Lassiter community together at all age levels to continue to build the culture and experience that has made Lassiter one of the premier lacrosse programs in the South.
