Testimonials

 

    • The energetic, knowledgeable and friendly coaching staff coupled with a positive style of teaching are why we chose Top Caliber

      • Caulley Derringer

    • The Top Caliber coaches really worked with my son and helped him to significantly improve his level of play. They were willing to let him try different positions and helped him find what worked best with his skills. Even though he wasn't a top player he was given individual attention and plenty of opportunities to grow and improve. Top Caliber was exactly what he needed to grow beyond rec league lacrosse and prepare for high school.

      • Kathleen Moyer

    • Top Caliber has provided my son with a local travel team, coached by the best High School, and collegiate players in NOVA. Over the last 11 years, my son has had the opportunity to play on 5 different travel teams, and TC remains as the program where he feels he has learned the most, while having a blast playing the game. The coaches have taught him various techniques and skills that helped him to not only make visible at the high school level, but at the collegiate levels as well. This is why my family knows that TC Lacrosse is the best youth travel program in Northern Virginia.

      • Tom Perry

      • Debbie Walsh

    • We’ve been a part of the program from the beginning and are blessed to have Frank and other coaches that actually care about the development and mindset of the boys. Fun to watch what you all have done with the program through the years.

      • Jennifer Koberg

    • Top Caliber has been great for my son. He has built fundamentals and been challenged to reach his full potential. The boys have grown individually and as a team, while learning to love the sport from coaches who have their best interests at heart. Thanks for a great experience!
