Black Bear is pleased to announce the formation of “Black Bear North” to allow convenient access to our outstanding program and coaching staff for athletes living a long distance from its primary practice facilities at West Chester University in Southern Chester County. Black Bear North, directed by Coach Churchey (head coach of Perkiomen Valley High School) and Coach Wise (head coach of Phoenixville High School), will practice at Phoenixville High School that boasts two state of the art turf fields.
Black Bear North will be training players from U-11 through HS Rising Sophomores (graduating 2017). We offer our members year round playing opportunities against the best competition in the country coupled with off-season training programs with position specific instruction taught by our Elite coaching staff. In addition, Black Bear is now an American Indoor Lacrosse Association integrated program which means that our players and coaches will also learn the bio mechanics, principles, strategies and tactics of indoor lacrosse and how to transfer these skill sets to their field game from AILA President Johnny Mouradian and his AILA staff.
We encourage our players to be involved with us year round and take advantage of our elite off season training opportunities that develop a player's positional skill set, fundamentals, field awareness, footwork, and Lacrosse IQ. Our program is designed to give our members every opportunity to take their game to the next level.
Try outs for Black Bear North will be held on Sunday, September 15th from 12-3pm at Phoenixville High School's Upper and Lower Turf Fields. Registration will begin at 11:15am at the Upper Turf Field. U-11 and U-13 try outs will be held from 12-1:30pm and U-15 and Rising Sophomore try outs from 1:30-3:00pm. Please bring a dark/light pinny for the try out. Numbers will be provided by the coaching staff to identify the athletes. Parking is available next to the middle school.
