HEADstrong Lacrosse Philadelphia Boys – Important Update

Dear Parents and Players,

First and foremost, let me apologize for any confusion relating to the email you received from Hugh Donovan and thank you for being part of the HEADstrong Lacrosse Club.

In response, the HEADstrong Philly Boys Lacrosse Club will continue without interruption.  While disappointing, we were notified Friday that Coach Murphy and Coach Donovan were no longer interested in club lacrosse.  This morning I learned that they will operate as the Quaker Lacrosse Club, a totally separate entity.  

We are very pleased to share that the club will now be under the direction of Jon Knowles and myself.  Jon is a highly decorated college coach (Marywood University) and was named 2022 Coach of the Year.  

I proudly serve as VP of the HEADstrong Foundation, brother of our founder and take great pride in continuing Nick’s legacy with the HEADstrong Lacrosse Club since 2005.  I am a former All-American Division One lacrosse player from Hofstra University, have played professional lacrosse and coaching club lacrosse for over 16 years. 

I will work closely with Jon and our coaches to ensure that your child has an incredible lacrosse experience while wearing lime green to become a better lacrosse player.  

Tryouts will be held Monday, 8/15 and Tuesday 8/16 from 5pm – 8pm at Valley Forge Military Academy Turf field at 800 Radnor Street Road Wayne, PA 19087. If you have already registered, we look forward to seeing you. If you haven’t registered yet click here.  If you know someone who may be interested, please share the tryout link with them.  

Tryout Details:

  • 5pm – 6pm – Youth – Graduation Years 2030, 2031, 2032 
  • 6pm – 7pm –  Middle School Graduation Years 2027, 2028, 2029
  • 7pm – 8pm – High School Graduating years 2024, 2025, 2026 

You have our commitment that your son will have an excellent experience learning the game and life lessons. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at [email protected].  Thank you for entrusting your son to us.  

For Nick,

Michael Colleluori
