World Series of Youth Lacrosse - We are the only club program in Canada that assembles Team Ontario Evolve and Team Ontario BC to compete for the U13 World Championships.
Our coaches are widely recognized as leaders and accomplished athletes/coaches in the lacrosse world!
Our coaches create a positive learning environment for all our players. The most essential component of the program is to aide in the overall fundamental development of every player. Each coach will focus on age appropriate themes while delivering on the necessary skills to allow players to further develop both on and off the field. As a result of allowing players to develop in the required skills, vertical alignment is created throughout the program. Meaning a gradual growth of skills and components will be added to each team/player as individuals learn and Evolve in their overall development.
Our player advisors have a combined 50 years of experience in assisting and placing lacrosse players into the NCAA. We work with each athlete and their family to identify the best fit and assist in navigating the recruiting process. We take great pride in working with college coaches and evolve athletes to ensure opportunities are realized.
Evolve & Minor Lacrosse Associations
We do everything we can to ensure our athletes can participate with their home clubs!
We believe in supporting home clubs by ensuring that we schedule our events strategically in the summer months so that athletes don't have to CHOOSE!
We provide our tournament schedule early for those athletes playing on B/C/D Centres/Teams so that coaches can work with scheduling. We schedule all our tournaments between home center tournament weekends and between OLA/BCLA/ALA qualifier dates and provincials.

*Important piece of information for athletes and families. In Canada we often link success with playing “up” in lacrosse. The USA structure for lacrosse is much different. They are very focused on the recruiting class and it is paramount that athletes play in their appropriate recruiting age bracket that aligns with NCAA recruiting. If you’re an athlete born after August 31stin your birth year it is in your best interest to play in the grade below. (i.e. if you are born after August 31stand in finishing Grade 8 you should play on the grade 7 team) - Remember as you get into recruiting years you are competing for scholarship dollars.
