The 2018 Pinnacle Girls Lacrosse Club


Hello Pinnacle!

We are happy to announce that the new board has officially taken their positions and we have some awesome things happening for the entire Pinnacle program!  We are looking forward to our upcoming Fall and Spring seasons.  A couple of big ticket items we are sure are on everyone’s minds are coaches and Fall Ball.  

Coaching Staff:

We are excited to announce we hired an amazing new Varsity Coach! Who will be hosting a couple get to know me clinics in July, we hope everyone joins us. We also encourage everyone check out the coaches Bio on the "About Us tab". We are in the process of interviewing JV coaches and coaches for our youth programs.  We are going to have a talented coaching staff this year! 


Fall Ball:

We will be having a Fall season! We will have strength and conditioning starting in Mid August and on field training to go from October 1st through November 8th. The Varsity group will be attending the Sandstorm Tournament. The practices will be held at Sunrise Middle School. This year we will have the regular high school division, the middle school program, and a mini program.  We will be sending out registration information and more details soon. 


Please note we have chosen not to do Las Vegas this year due to the timing of the Presidents Cup which is the largest recruiting tournament in the country being held the following week in Florida. 


Thank You.

PGLC Board
