About Mingos

 

Established in the summer of 2011, we had two teams play a summer tournament schedule that summer.  We impressed a lot of other clubs and college coaches in that first season.  Since then we have more than doubled in size and have established a reputation in the lacrosse community as a quality program. Our goal was to create a club that would cater to families that wanted a serious lacrosse program and less of a travel and financial committment in the summer and that continues to be our focus today. 

 

We never have parent coaches.  Most of our coaches are varsity level or higher and take a lot of pride in coaching our club players.  They love the game and they love teaching it and they make it a lot of fun for the girls. Over the years, we have expanded outside of the Finger Lakes and have had players from Canandaigua, Victor, Fairport, Pittsford, Greece, Webster, Wayne, Waterloo, Marcus Whitman, Mynderse, Newark, Midlakes, Pal-Mac, Geneva, Gananda and Penn Yan.

 

Each summer, we attend 4-5 tournaments and then another 3-4 in the fall.  Our players are seen by well over a hundred college coaches throughout the season and we take a very active role in the recruitment of our players. If a Mingo wants to play lacrosse in college, she will play.  We currently have many players playing in college at every single level: JUCO, DIII, DII and D1.
