2023 Summer Program

All Practices Now at Norfolk Collegiate. Youth Tryouts Scheduled for March 26. High School Tryouts to Follow on April 30.

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.

Two youth teams are planned for the summer of 2023 with tryouts for 2027/28 and 2029/30 teams to be held on March 26. Tryouts for two high school teams will then take place on April 30. As necessary, additional evaluations for all teams will be conducted on a rolling basis.

Youth team practices will be held every Sunday morning through June 11, with the exception of Easter Sunday and Memorial Day Weekend. Select Saturday morning practices will also be held as soon as the recreational seasons conclude.

High school team practices will also be held every Sunday morning through June 11, with the exception of Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday morning practices will also be held the first two weekends of June.

All practices (regardless of team) will be held on artificial turf fields at Norfolk Collegiate in Norfolk.

Tournament play will begin in June with the youth teams attending the following events:

The high school teams will participate in the following tournaments:

Regardless of team, for insurance purposes, all boys interested in trying out for the Patriots must be members of USA Lacrosse. They must also submit both a registration form and a non-refundable tryout fee of $25 prior to being considered for the Patriots. Upon receipt of these items, a confirmation email with greater details will be sent.

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.
