WHAT IS INTREPID?
The dictionary defines Intrepid as resolute, fearless, fortitude and endurance! Intrepid is also the Tri-State area's oldest and most successful recruiting and developmental lacrosse club for girls.
HOW IS INTREPID DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TRAVEL TEAMS IN THE AREA?
Intrepid is unique in that it offers two types of programs to its members. Our primary focus is and always has been getting players from Western Pennsylvania recruited to play lacrosse at the college level-we have over 90 players who have been gone on to play at the next level over the last 9 years!. We are committed to finding the best home for each of our players and take great care in navigating our families through the recruiting process. However, we also do offer more developmentally focused programs that focus on skill development. We hope families that are new to the concept of club lacrosse and are nervous to take the plunge, will see our alternative offerings as a great way to figure out what there level of commitment should be.
WHO CAN JOIN?
We have programs for just about every laxer! From learn to play opportunities all the way through getting you recruited to play in college, Intrepid will provide quality instruction and support in your growth and development. See the information for the upcoming season via the top menu tabs.

All players at the High School level must attend Team Selections. Within 24 hours after Team Selections an invitation will be issued to the top 20 players.
DO I HAVE TO COME TO ALL THE TOURNAMENTS?
Members are expected to attend all tournaments, and we encourage all players to participate, because no amount of practice will sharpen your skills better than the fire of competition!
WHERE DO I STAY AT THE TOURNAMENTS?
The Club Director will reserve a block of rooms for all tournaments and out-of-town events. However, it is the parent's responsibility to contact the hotel and pay for the room. Every effort will be made to book hotels that are convenient to the tournament site and preferably those that have a swimming pool and provide complimentary breakfast.
HOW WILL I KNOW WHAT TO DO AT THE TOURNAMENTS?
The coaches will be your primary contacts at all tournaments. Copies of the tournament itinerary, including the contacts cell phone numbers, will be emailed to you in advance. Families are responsible to arrange for all of their own transportation.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCIAL AID?
The Board is vigorously trying to secure grants for worthy student athletes. Any player wishing to be considered financial aid will need to submit a completed Financial Aid Request Form for the Board to review.
