Palmetto Bay Peacocks Lacrosse Club
For updates, please follow Peacock Lacrosse on Facebook.
The main focus of our lacrosse club is on player development; it is our firm belief that players cannot reach their full potential on the field until their fundamentals are rock solid.
These fundamentals are the cornerstone of our lacrosse program at all levels, and we work tirelessly to ensure that all players truly understand the game of lacrosse, the commitment that it takes to reach your potential, and the importance of being a team player.
What We're About
While the tournaments are fun and a great way to showcase your abilities, the real work is in the practices. It all starts with sound fundamentals and an understanding of the game. Outside of practice, it’s important for our players to be students of the game. Watch games, YouTube videos, and most importantly, hit a wall and practice on your free time.
We make every practice competitive so our young athletes understand the importance of every type of scenario they can be faced with. The most important concept is that we compete until the last whistle, no matter what!
This is a game. It’s meant to be fun. We don’t allow any negativity in the programs. That goes for coaches, parents, and players.
