Our Mad Dog National program is an invitation only roster.  The player pool is comprised of the top athletes from our regional programs and affiliate programs coast-to-coast.  We cap our National team rosters at 21. This ensures all players receive the greatest opportunity for success on the field and the ability to develop each player,individually, off the field. The National team will compete in the most exclusive and competitive showcases nationwide.

We strongly believe in the “Mad Dog Culture” and instill these characteristics in our coaches and players; we emphasize “Family” and the mindset that the TEAM is always greater than the sum of its parts.  The roster may not always be comprised of simply the most talented players but the players that fit within the culture we are trying to develop here at Mad Dog and within the National program.

Our goal is to develop not only young lacrosse players but young individuals. We expect that each player to put on a Mad Dog uniform, conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with the Mad Dog culture both on and off the field.

On the field, players will be provided top-level coaching, exposure to college coaches and a high-level playing experience.

Off the field, we will motivate young men and women of character.  We will teach them that as a student-athlete you must always maintain the highest level of respect, dedication, class and leadership qualities in everything you do.    

In closing, being chosen as a member of the Mad Dog National team signifies more than being a talented lacrosse player, it means that as a player and person you embody everything that Mad Dog, as an organization, stands for.  Mad Dog National provides an opportunity to bring together players and families from coast to coast. As a coaching staff, we are passionate and excited to see our young athletes develop life-long relationships with their peers from different areas of the country.  This network will open doors and create opportunities for them as they grow into young adults. This is something that hits home with all of us who are a part of Mad Dog given that this organization was founded on relationships created through this amazing game we call, Lacrosse.

Thank you from all of us here at Mad Dog Lacrosse and the Mad Dog National team.

  • “Having either played or coached lacrosse for over 25 years, I can tell you that I have never had a finer lacrosse experience than the week we spent in Colorado. Yes, It was great that our team had a lot of wins at both tournaments, but to see your son get better and take his game to the next level right before your eyes is priceless.”
  • “From the mountains to the coast, we had an incredible experience with the Mad Dog family. Very impressed with the way the kids came together to play game after game weather they came off a win or a loss. Thank you coaches for creating a family culture for both players and parents a like. We will definitely be back for more Mad Dog fun!”
  • “Our son has played on a lot of Elite teams on the west coast and this was one of the best experiences. Communication was far superior and the dollar value for the number of games they played was very attractive. The amount of time the coaches spent with their respective teams was tremendous. It was extremely organized and fun on and off the field.”
  • “The Select experience was first rate- great communication and organization throughout tourney. Dedicated and knowledgeable coaches. Upbeat, positive, very focused on good team play, sportsmanship and excellent role models to young players.”
  • “It was amazing how quickly the boys came together both on and off the field. The play, sportsmanship and camaraderie all exceeded our expectations.”
  • "Of all the elite programs, in multiple sports, we have encountered, Mad Dog remains the model others should follow. Tom Duerr has created a program that puts families and athletes first, attracts an unbelievable coaching staff and makes sure every participant is growing and improving."
  • "My son had a great experience playing with Mad Dog Select 2020 team at Sandstorm 2016. Coaching was excellent and the team pulled together from NY, NJ, and CA was very competitive. My son had no prior connection to the Mad Dog program and did not know a single other player on the team or any of the coaches, but he was treated like a member of the Mad Dog family and had a great time."
