2024 Summer Program

All Practices Now at Norfolk Collegiate. Open Tryouts for High School & Youth Teams Coming in March.

Pre-Tryout Evaluations Being Conducted on Select Sundays in February and Early March. Call (443) 690-7683 or email director@capitallacrosse.com to schedule an evaluation.

The longest-running travel program in Hampton Roads, the Tidewater Patriots provide committed lacrosse players reasonably-priced, elite instruction from outstanding, veteran coaches. The mission is simple: help boys become the best that they can be by actually teaching them -- and the results are tangible: the Patriots are the most successful travel program in the area, with dozens of program graduates having gone on to successfully compete at the college level. Over twenty Patriots graduates are presently competing at the NCAA Division I, II and III or MCLA levels.

The Patriots primary focus is on player development and the perfection of skills and lacrosse IQ. Patriots teams typically conduct 8-12 two-hour practices over the course of each season with all sessions being overseen by program director Chris Swanenburg. A former Division I head coach, Swanenburg brings 20 years of NCAA coaching and recruiting experience to the Patriots and has developed future All-Americans and professional players alike. Many of the best players in the region (and the majority of Tidewater All-Americans) have come through the Patriots program and Coach Swanenburg's connections have opened doors at the college level for tens of players.

Three youth teams are planned for the summer of 2024 with tryouts for 2028, 2029 and 2030/31 teams to be held in March. Tryouts for two high school teams (Showcase & Tournament) will also be held. Whereas the Showcase Team consists of the most experienced and talented players in the the region, the Tournament Team caters more toward promising younger high school players. Both teams attend recruiting events.

Practice schedules for all teams will begin with the first official tryout and be held on weekends only throughout the summer season. Practice schedules are formed so as to not conflict with existing recreational and high school schedules and will be held on artificial turf fields at Norfolk Collegiate in Norfolk.

Tournament schedules for all teams will be determined by the talent level of each team and will be posted as soon as possible. The tentative plan is to attend events on the weekends of June 15-16 and June 22-23, at which point all seasons will conclude.

For further information, or should you have any questions regarding the evaluation process, teams or program, please contact Coach Swanenburg at (443) 690-7683 or at director@capitallacrosse.com.
