For The Kids Lacrosse

Why FTK Lacrosse?

FTK Lacrosse is a year-round club program focused on overall player and team development, where elite players around all of Louisiana assemble to learn from and play for the best coaches in the state. This program is fully committed to training your player to be the best he can possibly be at his respective position and to achieve his personal lacrosse goals - whether that is to make his high school varsity team or play lacrosse at the next level in college. Our FTK National Teams, available at all age groups, play in select 'invite-only' tournaments, against extremely talented competition, while also attending college recruiting showcases to receive national exposure for our Kids.

At FTK Lacrosse, we are not only about building and fueling a love of this amazing game inside of each Kid in our program, we are instilling life lessons to be carried with them as they progress into young men. We are all about the Kids - bottom line.

FTK is a Family - A collective team of parents, coaches and players focused on providing the best possible lacrosse experience for players in the great state of Louisiana.
