Trilogy Lacrosse Announces Integration of XTEAM, Launches National Girls Program
The Leader in Lacrosse Education adds nationally renowned girls program
BROOKLYN, NY :: Trilogy Lacrosse announced the launch of its national girls program through the integration of XTEAM this past weekend. Trilogy Lacrosse and XTEAM have been unofficially collaborating for ten years in their respective missions to offer the best lacrosse education and event opportunities for boys and girls nationwide. The thought-leading Brooklyn-based organizations have now officially combined operations, leadership, and staff.
XTEAM is a highly competitive national club team with a ten-year track record of elite college placement and leadership development for young women. Crista Samaras founded XTEAM in 2001. Crista was a 3x All America, 2x Ivy League Player of the Year, and All-Time leading scorer at Princeton University ('99). She was also a 2x World Cup team member and has served as an Assistant Coach at Yale University and Interim Head Coach at University of Richmond. Crista will continue to serve as the Program Director for XTEAM.
“It is an amazing thing to join forces with like-minded, innovative people who want to make an impact on our sport and industry. We share a passion and philosophy focused on player and character development. Now we have a platform to unify those ideals,” explains XTEAM founder and Program Director, Crista Samaras. “I’m excited for this new chapter of XTEAM and to focus my efforts as a coach, mentor, and developer of curriculum.”
XTEAM will now operate as part of Trilogy Lacrosse, the Leader in Lacrosse Education. “We are impressed by the quality of XTEAM programming and the impact it has made on all the lives of so many young women over the past decade,” said Trilogy Lacrosse co-Founder Robert Lindsey. “We’ve been very patient in entering women’s lacrosse until we were certain we could offer the best events and educational programming in the industry. We’re grateful for the opportunity to now serve the entire lacrosse community,”
In addition to hosting XTEAM for top female high school players, Trilogy Lacrosse will continue to provide Tournaments, Aces Events, the Intensive Club Experience, Camps and Clinics, and Curriculum Development for male youth, middle and high school players and teams. Additional girls programming, including Tournaments, Aces Events, and Camps and Clinics will be announced shortly.
