History Pittsburgh Select Lacrosse was established in 2006 with boys only teams with the mission to give Western Pennsylvania athletes an opportunity to benefit from experienced, successful coaches.
Each year, PSL has grown with its ability to retain top-tier coaches each with many years of coaching experience. Throughout the years, PSL has priced membership dues reasonably to attract as many talented players and families as possible.
PSL offers field and box travel teams for boys and field travel teams for girls. PSL boys travel teams' annualized season begins with indoor winter practices during January and February at the Southpointe Fieldhouse. Teams regroup after the scholastic spring season in early June to prepare for summer travel attending three regional tournaments with summer ending early- to mid-July. This exclusive offering gives PSL teams the best opportunity to compete with other regional elite clubs and also provides our players excellent exposure. Players also need to actively promote themselves using optional online recruiting services as well as college admissions and financial aid/scholarship consultant programs. These programs are offered to PSL member families at substantial discounts and they help high school student-athletes and their parents find and get admitted to colleges that are a best fit socially, academically, athletically, and financially.
PSL fields highly competitive teams and our players improve their overall game faster by benefiting from the depth of experience that our coaches provide and by playing with other talented players from W. PA and WV. Players that have the opportunity to practice and play together regularly with the most talented players from other school districts progress their game much more quickly than those that play with the same players from their school team year long. PSL provides a great opportunity for your player's development with committed and experienced coaches. Our coaches have achieved great success within PSL by choosing a select group from among the best area players. PSL players are among the most talented of their schools' teams and typically demonstrate great leadership and social skills, a positive attitude, and excellent athletic ability.
PSL also offers a travel program to our youngest boy players through the PSL U-11 travel team. Personal coaching attention and instruction at this level will help these young boys and girls properly learn the fundamentals of lacrosse from the same top-tier level of coaches.
PSL will not promise that your son or daughter will be recruited to a Division I school to play lacrosse, but we will promise to give your child and your family as many tools as possible to reach their goals. What we are is confident in promising the best coaching, the best value, and the best local travel lacrosse experience for your child and for your family!
