Travel Teams

HAMMERS ELITE

Hammers Elite is our invite-only travel team option that brings together the top players from Washington D.C, Maryland, Virginia and neighboring states. These teams attend high profile tournaments, train under the best coaches and follow a college-style development model for Boys in 3rd Grade through 12th Grade.

In order to be evaluated for Hammers Elite (2022-2032), please e-mail Coach Reyes at ricky@hammerslax.com.

Our Focus

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

Individual player development is what makes Hammers the premiere club for lacrosse development. Our professional staff is dedicated to maximizing our players full potential at the players own pace.

Our innovative, year-round hybrid training model aims to develop the whole person, not just the player, and why over 75 of our players have moved on to play collegiately at the highest levels since our first graduating class in 2017.

To understand how each player is evaluated please see our H.A.M.M.E.R approach to player and talent identification.

 

CLUB DEVELOPMENT

We pride ourselves on creating a club culture where every player, no matter the team, are given the same opportunities to succeed if they choose to.

It is important that our players are exposed to an array of information which is why they are exposed to all the Hammers Technical Staff throughout all their training sessions while in the club.

You will also see many of our Hammers teams, and players, training with the other Hammers teams in their own age group, as well as older groups. This helps to establish a club atmosphere, and not have players, and teams feel as if they are disconnected from the club and Technical Staff.

Team Development

As the players become better through our focus on player development, it is inevitable that our teams become better as well.

To have a successful team, you must have successful players. We understand that team results vary by age and players, but we do not use results of games as a gauge of success in our youth teams.

We are, however, confident that with our innovative, year-round hybrid training model, our youth players will develop and find success as they climb the ladder in our club into our older teams.
