Evergreen is Virginia's premiere lacrosse program for player development. We are a development-focused and results-driven program that offers numerous high-level training opportunities for athletes of all ages and skill levels throughout the year.

Our travel athletes and academy participants train at the Evergreen Sports Complex, a state-of-the-art facility featuring four turf fields under the lights and a 24,000 sq. ft. pavilion that houses our club’s offices, classrooms, meeting rooms and more. Our club is staffed with experienced and professional lacrosse coaches who are dedicated to the sport and our athletes.

We believe that lacrosse is an extension of the classroom – it is not only a sport, but it’s a lifestyle of character building, team effort, and passion. Evergreen Lacrosse provides an innovative atmosphere designed to train and support while building character and positive traits that will last a life time.

Evergreen Lacrosse endeavors to develop the complete student-athlete. We emphasize Character, Integrity and Hard Work while developing the best lacrosse player that each individual can be. Our focus is to develop an athlete to compete at a high level while developing a person for life.

Evergreen is owned by Play to Win (PTW) LLC, a professional sports management company that is made up of dedicated, full-time staff that enhances operations and administrative support for our club families located at their home, the Evergreen Sportsplex in Leesburg, Virginia.

Coaches Development and Screening

Our Evergreen coaches have a variety of experiences and backgrounds in coaching. We believe in hiring coaches who share the same values as our staff, and at the same time can bring something different to the table. We are excited to have many of them involved with coaching at the high school and/or collegiate level. We also have coaches who are current college lacrosse players who bring with them valuable perspectives of real-time expectations at the collegiate level.

We know that our coaches are one of the most important factors in our success as a program and we are committed to having the best in the area. We require background checks prior to being hired. We also provide ongoing training throughout the season, not only in lacrosse development but also in leadership, coaching and mentoring. We believe our coaches should be expected to develop like our players – every coach, at any level, can improve as a leader!
