Check out how we run our practices
Team 11 was founded in 2016. In that short time, this boys’ lacrosse club has grown to over 160 players in seven different age groups, with a deep coaching staff and organizational infrastructure. The program has quickly risen to compete with the most elite clubs in the country. Its success is grounded in the unbounded energy and extensive lacrosse knowledge of its founder, Joey Sankey.
Joey grew up in Warminster, Pennsylvania, spending thousands of hours playing lacrosse in the small backyard of his home. Joey’s hard work paid off with an opportunity to play high school lacrosse at the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, where he finished with 342 career points on 178 goals and 164 assists. He was named a 2011 Under Armour All-American and was tapped the #6 rising senior by Inside Lacrosse Magazine. From there, he went on to play at the University of North Carolina. He spent four years playing at UNC, earning multiple All-American selections. He finished his Tar Heel career as the program’s all-time leading scorer with 229 points. Joey was selected by the Charlotte Hounds as the 9th overall pick in the 2015 MLL Collegiate Draft. His outstanding play put him on the 2015 MLL All-Star roster and earned him the title of 2015 Cascade Rookie of the Year.
Seeing his calling as developing young lacrosse athletes, Coach Sankey is now committing 100% of his time to Team 11.
Laser focus on long-term individual player development.
We love this game!
Team 11 is based out of the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia and Bucks County, PA. In the fall, all of our teams practice at Penn Charter. In the winter, spring, and summer, our youth teams are primarily located in Bucks County and our high school teams remain at Penn Charter.
Youth (grades 3-8): Our youth teams play all year round. We have two fall tournaments, winter skills sessions (with the likelihood of box tournaments), six Spring League games, and four summer tournaments. All tournaments include 5-6 games each on average.
