2021 Fall Program

Tryouts for Youth and High School Teams to be Held Sunday, August 29.

Home to ten of the last eighteen high school All-Americans 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 competitive and longest-running travel program in the area, with numerous program graduates successfully competing at the college level.

The Patriots primary focus is on player development and the perfection of skills and lacrosse IQ. Patriots teams typically conduct 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 have come through the Patriots program and Coach Swanenburg's connections have opened doors at the college level for tens of players.

For the fall of 2021, at the youth level, the Patriots will field 12U and 14U teams. At the high school level, the Patriots will field either one or two teams, with squads formed based on graduation year and talent level.

Open tryouts for all teams will be conducted on Sunday, August 29, with pre-registration required. Interested individuals must submit both a tryout fee of $20 (which will be applied to Patriots team dues upon selection to a team) and an Application & Waiver Form to Coach Swanenburg via e-mail at director@capitallacrosse.com. Also, all participants (including returnees) must be members of US Lacrosse.

Starting on August 29, practices will be conducted every Sunday afternoon (with the exception of Labor Day Weekend) through October 31. The Patriots' primary practice location will be Kiln Creek Park in York County. The Warhill Sports Complex in Williamsburg and Norfolk Collegiate in Norfolk will also serve as a practice locations.

As for tournaments, all teams will compete in the Colonial Challenge in Williamsburg on Sunday, November 7.

The 12U and 14U teams will also attend the Legends Chrome Classic in Williamsburg November 13-14 while the high school teams will attend both days of the Famous Autumn Classic in Bel Air, Maryland on November 13 and 14.

The cost of participation, which includes all practice sessions and tournament entry fees, is as follows:

  • 12U and 14U Teams: $525
  • High School Teams: $625

Newcomers to the program will be required to purchase a fully sublimated Patriots uniform set at a nominal fee.

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.
