About Milwaukee Select
Milwaukee Select is a summer & fall lacrosse program that offers coaching through weekly practices and competition in team camps/tournaments. Summer 2015 is the tenth year we have had summer travel teams. We are planning four boy's levels: U11, U13, U15, high school.
Grow the level of lacrosse throughout the greater Milwaukee area by providing educational opportunities for players, coaches, referee's and parents through camps & clinics, leagues, tournaments and select programs.
Milwaukee Blue Eagles 2017 Update
Milwaukee Select has been in existence for twelve years. It was started by Hot4Lax as a means for the boys who participated in programs during the spring to continue playing and practicing through the summer. We started with one team for summer 2006 and expanded to two teams in the second year. Year four, we had enough interest to add a third team at the U15 level and a U19 team of seniors and post graduates. The Milwaukee Select office is located in the Hot4Lax Lacrosse Center in Waukesha, WI.
Our teams in the past have always been developmental and offering the boy's and girl's the opportunity to play with the best players in the Milwaukee area and against some of the best competition through a variety of tournaments and team camps. Some say this has been the best learning and exposure they have had. This includes lacrosse experience, life lessons and being a solid young man or woman. This has become an extended family/team for many of the players. Many of our coaches are now alumni of those first teams. The boy's will have the opportunity to be seen by college coaches at each of the tournaments.
What are the plans for the coming year?
* Coaching Staff - (See Coaches bio page for more details) Coaches this coming season that have committed include Robin Buckley, and past Milwaukee Select players Mike Gaesing and Michael DiGiacom, Hunter Huth. Jesus Arquilles-Chavira and Alex McHugh will be among the coaching staff. We have invitations out to other strong coaches. Confirmation is forthcoming. This is a great way to give back, see what college coaches are doing and prepare for the next level.
* Each team will have a team coordinator who will help the coaches in parents with team organization and communication for all events including travel, schedules and on site happenings.
* I have been on the coaching staff since the beginning. As the program has grown, I have taken on more of the general management role, stepping in when needed. The coaching staff will be a cohesive unit, sharing ideas and working together. Each coach has a voice. The head coach for each team will be the lead person. Questions can be directed to that person directly or to me.
