The Boys Lacrosse team has traveled to various locations for their annual preseason trip, including IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida and the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in California.  This year’s trip destination is planned to be in both Delray Beach and Orlando, FL.

The team will enjoy sunshine, premier training facilities, and superb competition. Players participate in two practices each day and leave plenty of time for shared experiences and leadership development.  After about a week, the team returns to Deerfield with an increased sense of community and an excitement for the upcoming season – historically one of the most challenging schedules in all of
New England.
