Whales taking a short break.

Thanks for all the emails and DM's.  Due to a couple surgeries in the family, my graduation and a big family trip we are taking a break from organizing Whales teams right now. Whales will be back in 2019. If you are interested in being considered for a future team please email us your name, grad year, position(s), lax resume, why you want to play for Whales and two coach references.       


Pods 11, 12 & 13 champion over $20,000 for Wishes!

Our three Sand Storm teams championed over $20,000 for Make-A-Wish Orange Country and the Inland Empire!  Our teams honored Josh Varnell who has battled cystic fibrosis since he was a baby.  Josh had his wish granted a year ago when they sent him and his family on the trip of a lifetime to Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.  He came and talked to our teams to tell the players how important these wishes are to families like his.  


Make-A-Wish Orange County & Inland Empire

We have officially announced our charity for the Sand Storm tournament.   Excited to champion money for the chapter of Make-A-Wish located closest to the tournament, Orange County and Inland Empire.   We were inspired to pick this charity because all three lacrosse players who we have honored/played for were granted wishes by their own local chapters and we saw the amazing things this program does.

Whales Lax is headed to Sandstorm this January!

In our biggest endeavor to date, we will take three boys teams to Palm Desert, CA to play at Sandstorm, the largest tournament on the West Coast.   We are excited to partner with Charm City Youth Lacrosse and Protalus to offer the west coast lax experience to several Charm City players.   More details about this event and our charity coming soon!

Whales first girls team sweep the Oregon Lacrosse Classic! Champs!!!

So proud of our U15 and HS Elite girls teams who both won their age divisions at the Oregon Lacrosse Classic in Bend Oregon last weekend!  The girls honored Liz Lofurno, a 16 year old West Linn laxer who has been battling stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Liz's recent scans have not shown any cancer and she was cleared to play weeks before the tourney.  We pretty much went crazy as we watched Liz rip the net time and time again!  #LizsStrong
