All Practices Now Conducted at Norfolk Collegiate.

High School Team Tryouts: Sunday, August 4 from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

Pre-Registration Required.

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 fall of 2024 with tryouts for 2029/30 and 2031/32 teams to be held on Thursday, July 25. Tryouts for two high school teams (Showcase & Tournament) will be held on Sunday, August 4. 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.

Only if necessary, additional youth team evaluations will be conducted on Thursday, August 1. No additional high school tryouts are planned. Interested boys who cannot attend the August 4 practice must contact Coach Swanenburg to discuss an opportunity to be evaluated.

Practices for all teams will begin on Sunday, September 8 and will continue every Sunday morning through at least the month of October. Teams may practice the first Sunday in November before attending two weekend tournaments to end the season.

The tournament schedule and pricing for all teams will be set as soon as tryouts are conducted and rosters finalized. Expected costs are approximately $600 for the youth teams and $700 for the high school teams. Newcomers to the program will also be required to purchase an "at cost" fully-sublimated uniform set, consisting of a reversible, shorts and a shooter shirt.

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.
