Founder's Elite

Positional Academy

Founder’s Elite Positional Academy is an invitation-based event that focuses on position-specific training and knowledge transfer. Designed and developed by True’s founders, this event will showcase a unique opportunity to develop your positional skills with elite-level instruction and immediate, personal feedback. Additionally, this will be an opportunity to work directly with the highest-level lacrosse minds within True’s network, including True National program leadership, and coaches whose backgrounds span multiple compete levels including professional, collegiate, and club.

Coaching Staff

True Lacrosse is home to some of the sport’s most seasoned coaches and trainers, and we’re also excited to be bringing on instructors from outside of our organization to lend additional expertise to our event offering.
