Family is the foundation of Sentry Lacrosse. Always remember that lacrosse is a privilege! Never take family, education, or friends for granted. Learning and improving everyday should always be the focus. By definition, "Sentry" is a guard, or something that protects a loved one. The Sentry mascot is “Uncle Sentry” which is Sentry’s version of “Uncle Sam”. Sentry strongly believes that “Uncle Sentry” is the toughest, most appropriate mascot a Texas team could have, considering how much Texans love Texas and their country. (See image of Uncle Sentry at very bottom). All players are encouraged to do their part, both on and off the field, to support and protect their family and friends. This includes being a relentless, respectful, and committed teammate that loves what he does. When times get tough, players, parents, and coaches need to support, educate, and motivate one another for maximum growth.
At Sentry Lacrosse we structure our program differently than any other team in Texas.
In 2019 -2020 we plan to reinforce the concepts and system that we focused on last year and progress to the next level both individually (player skill development) and as a team (offensive & defensive team philosophies and strategy). Sentry will offer position specific skills clinics and additional practices throughout the year to better prepare our players for both their school Spring season and Fall and Summer tournaments.
More advanced offensive and defensive concepts: We push our players to learn more advanced concepts and schemes than they have previously been exposed to. They must focus at practice, work on stick work outside of practice, and study plays in order to keep up.
Streamlined offensive and defensive schemes, concepts and drills throughout every team: Players will advance within the system as they move through the Sentry program. Every year players will learn more advanced plays and concepts, building on the previous season.
We believe that grouping teams by grade promotes a positive learning environment and allows the same core group of players to compete together all the way through High School. This system is congruent with the top club programs on the east coast. The team chemistry that develops over the years gives us a competitive advantage and allows teammates to bond on and off the field. Our coaching staff provides the best skill development and relationships with top universities and around the country.
Certain tournaments focus on elite teams by age and this give Sentry players an opportunity to showcase their skills and compete at the highest level. We strongly believe that we have the best program in Texas and our teams will have the opportunity to compete against the best teams in the country.
