FAQs

Why would I choose Thunder Lacrosse or Atlanta Storm Lacrosse over other Atlanta based lacrosse programs?

As a program founded by coaches, our focus is quality instruction above all else. Our success in tournament play and in helping players get recruited by college coaches is a result of our ability to train lacrosse athletes unlike any other program in the Southeast. With over 150 men’s and women’s lacrosse coaches in our organization, we are able to provide the appropriate instruction for your son or daughter wherever they are in their progression and allow them the opportunity to achieve their personal goals within the program.

What is the difference between Elite and Select lacrosse with the Thunder and Atlanta Storm programs?

Elite Lacrosse is for male and female players who are looking to compete against the top lacrosse teams in North America. Our high school Elite teams travel to prestigious recruiting tournaments while our middle school Elite teams attend highly selective tournaments that help prepare them for the recruiting events in their future. Our boys’ Select teams compete in Atlanta and throughout the region and are intended to provide emerging players the opportunity to improve under the instruction of experienced coaches following the same curriculum used by our Elite teams.

What is The Warehouse?

The Warehouse is our 7500 square foot indoor facility where our talented group of instructors provide individual and small group training for boys and girls of all ages and skill levels.

Can I participate in the clinics, camps and Warehouse training if I don’t play on a Thunder or Storm team?

Absolutely. Almost all of our instructional offerings are open to players both in and out of our team programs. Our mission is to help create better lacrosse players without any bias toward where they choose to play travel, high school, feeder, or recreational lacrosse.

When are tryouts?

We select our Thunder and Atlanta Storm Elite teams in August of each year. Our Select teams are chosen later in the summer. The Thunder National tryouts are held in January. Check the tryouts page periodically for updates.

How can we participate if we don’t live in Atlanta?

Many of our skill development clinics and warehouse training sessions are scheduled during the weekend and may fit into your vacation or travel schedule. Additionally, our National Teams’ rosters include players from across the country. Please email us at info@thunderlb3lacrosse.com and we’ll connect you with information on how to be considered for our programs.
