Dear Riptide lacrosse families,
It has been truly an honor and privilege to build the Riptide Organization over the past decade. We have formed relationships and created memories that will last a lifetime. However, the game of lacrosse has and will continue to go through tremendous change. In order for us to continue to compete and provide your child with the necessary tools we need to adapt as a premier lacrosse club.
After careful consideration, we are excited to share with you that Riptide and Legacy lacrosse have joined forces to create one dynamic organization. This merger brings many exciting opportunities. We will be able to offer more competitive teams, additional coaching expertise, enhanced skill development and the ability to compete at the highest level.
Please be assured that your child will continue to develop and grow as a lacrosse player while being exposed to the core beliefs and values that our organization has always instilled. Our entire coaching staff will remain as part of our new program.
Our club will take on the name of Legacy Lacrosse. We are extremely pleased to be guided by Legacy Lacrosse founder, Tommy Zummo:
· 4 time Collegiate All-American
· Midfielder of the Year
· 2 time NCAA Champion
· Metropolitan Area Lacrosse College Player of the Year
