True Detroit

True Detroit is starting practice up in September and running until March! Fall and winter practices will be focused on individual growth and lacrosse IQ. Players will be pushed through countless drills that work specially on; stick skills, strength & speed, dodging ability, shooting, footwork, defensive angles, proper checks, ground balls, hand placement and so much more. These training sessions will fully prepare the boys for their school seasons and for what is expected out of the True Michigan program.

We pride our teams on fundamentals, development and training at the highest level possible. We are very much so looking forward to working with new players and parents!
