Our Organizational Commitment
All of our teams are led by former college lacrosse players with coaching experience, as well as junior coaches who are currently competing at the collegiate level. In addition, each team will be assisted by a parent mentor and parent liaison.
Perfect Performance Cardinal Club players will receive the highest level of lacrosse coaching, training, practice, and game experience. Our close-knit and competitive environment provides our players the best opportunities to play against other top-level teams and receive exposure from college coaches from all over the country.
Perfect Performance Cardinal Club teams compete at some of the biggest tournaments on the East Coast, including the IWLCA’s Champions Cup and Capital Cup in Richmond, VA, as well as President’s Cup in Florida. This exposure enhances their chances of being seen and recruited by college coaches at the DI, DII, DIII and Community College levels.

The goal of the club is to place players in the most competitive environment to enhance their athletic attributes, lacrosse skills, and game IQ. The Cardinal experience is intended to be a blend of intense growth in practices and games, coupled with exposure to positive female role models and fellow athletes.
