THE GORILLA LAX CLUB EXPERIENCE
Below is a summary of the comprehensive training that each Gorilla player receives during a season which runs from September through July.
For the 2020-21 season, Gorilla Lax will field two teams at each age level to accommodate players from two geographical regions - Metro and North. Weekly training sessions are scheduled at a Metro (i.e. Newton, Wellesley, etc) and a North (i.e. North Andover, Haverhill, etc.) location. Players assigned to a Metro team are expected to attend training at the Metro site, while North players are expected to attend training at the North site. During the summer season, a “combined” session will be held weekly at a neutral site (e.g. Billerica, Lexington, etc.) for both North and Metro teams. However, Gorilla players from either team are welcome to attend both North and Metro sessions if their schedules allow.
Additionally, there will be an opportunity to be placed on an elite team which will include participation in regional and national tournaments. This past summer, the Gorilla 2021 team traveled to Delaware and captured a title at the Liberty National Elite Tournament so we look forward to our teams continuing to shine on the national stage.
