Brendan Finnerty, head coach at San Clemente High School has teamed up with Trent Cooper, head coach at Dana Hills High School to expand his SC Sharks Club Lacrosse program. The new program, South Coast Lacrosse, will hold placement tryouts on Saturday, May 18th.

The purpose of SC Lacrosse is to establish youth and high school tournament teams to compete at the highest level. The goal is to develop each athlete into a high-profile lacrosse player, teammate, and citizen. There’s more to lacrosse than just stick skills and lacrosse IQ. The game of lacrosse is also about learning commitment, work ethic, and having the right attitude. SC Lacrosse aims to bring all of these things together. This is the SC Experience.

SC Lacrosse is about growing the game of lacrosse throughout the South County area. SC Lacrosse is not about growing individual programs.  When athletes commit their time in the off-season to improve their skills, the game of lacrosse benefits and the overall competitiveness of local lacrosse programs improves.

If you are looking for the complete lacrosse experience, try SC Lacrosse. Experience SC Lacrosse for yourself.
