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.
