Team 11 Juniors is for 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders (2030-2032) looking for elite fundamental instruction. The program will be run by the Sankey Family and other qualified coaches. This program will focus on making sure young players learn the correct fundamentals that will be the building blocks to the player they become.
My name is Joey Sankey and I am the founder of Team 11/ Sankey Lacrosse. This is our first year running the Team 11 Juniors Program, and our mission is to offer affordable and elite level training for young players. This program is offered to players entering 1st through 3rd grade. If you are younger or older and interested in this developmental program, please reach out to us through team11lax.com.
The value and importance of receiving quality fundamental instruction at the beginning stages of learning the sport cannot be understated. My father, Coach Harry Sankey Sr, started instilling the proper fundamentals in me in the 1st Grade when I started playing. That skillset of learning how to cradle, catch, pass, shoot, and pickup groundballs the CORRECT way is something that is still with me today while playing at the highest level in the PLL.
Team 11 Juniors players will be coached by different members of the Sankey Family as well as other qualified coaches that have a firm grasp of how to coach the fundamentals to young players. The players will get a variety of different coaches throughout the program. This includes, but not limited to:
Joey Sankey: UNC's All-Time Leading Point Scorer, MLL 2015 Rookie of the Year, Current member of PLL Archers
Harry Sankey Sr: Two-Time State Champion at Penn Charter, Penn Charter Hall of Fame, 2001 EPSLA Coach of the Year, and 30+ years coaching experience
Ryan Sankey: Cabrini University, 10+ Years Coaching Experience
Harry Sankey Jr: Two-Time Captain at Widener University. 10+ Years Coaching experience, 2018 NJ Coach of the Year
Brian Teuber: Drexel University and former member of the Philadelphia Wings
We will practice on Sunday Mornings at Twin Oaks in Warrington (3129 Bradley Rd, Chalfont PA). The exact time of practice is still TBD but it will be most likely start at 9:00am. We will begin our training sessions in September and take them all the way through to Thanksgiving. We will look to continue this program throughout the year for any players interested!
