Summer


DESERTHEAT l 2020 SUMMER

Here we come... bringing the HEAT back to the Summer of 2020! Things will be a little different, as to be expected, nevertheless we are excited to get back to the fields and reconnect with our AWESOME lacrosse community! We will carefully be following guidelines set forth by the CDC, US Lacrosse and state officials. Please be sure so you understand the protocols before arriving to the fields.

We will kick off the month of June with practices, small drills, conditioning and stick work. No scrimmaging or person-to-person contact will be allowed. In July we hope to progress into the next phase as things continue to reopen in Arizona and our surrounding states.

SUMMER SEASON PRACTICES: Two Steps

STEP ONE: June 8-July 2 7:30-9pm

Practices will focus on stick skills, fundamentals, conditioning, and core strengthening workouts. We will try our best to limit our groups on the field to an average of 10 players per coach with good spacing between groups on the field to help maintain social distancing. Registrations can cap out based on location options so register quickly to hold your spot. Note: If we exceed our numbers you will be on a waitlist and we will see if we can accommodate more time slots on the fields.

  • Middle School (NORTH): Tues/Thurs
  • Middle School/High School (SOUTH): Tues/Thurs

NORTH Location: North Phoenix Preparatory Academy, 14100 N 32nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85032

SOUTH Location: Archway Classical Academy Arete, 4525 E Baseline Rd, Gilbert, AZ 85234


STEP TWO: July 13-Aug 9th Registration coming soon

Our hopes are to progress practices into more game like conditions with small group scrimmaging while continuing to follow guidelines set by states officials as we get closer.
