What Are People Saying?

"My girls and I were fortunate enough to learn of Stampede & Next Level LAX at the onset of the program. Through the years, my 3 daughters have learned and grown tremendously. The expertise of the coaching staff is top notch. Their dynamic modeling and teaching provides an opportunity for all the girls to succeed. The wealth of knowledge, experience, and commitment to the game by all of the coaches is tremendous. The coaches live, love, and share their passion, patience, and talent with our young players. They create a program that is like no other. With their guidance, the love for the game continues in these young girls. The young players from Next Level are now taking their growth in character and skills into the next stage of their lives. It has been beautiful to watch."

What Are People Saying

"Stampede, without a doubt, is the best program for advanced girl's lacrosse in WNY. With a committed staff of experienced coaches who have played and coached at the highest levels of the game, players are constantly developing and learning new skills to prepare them to play the game at their best. I wouldn't refer my players anywhere else."

What Are People Saying?

"We have had the extraordinary opportunity to watch our daughter participate within the Stampede Lax Program for the past 4 years. The program has provided her with outstanding coaching, tremendous role models as coaches as well as present college players that our daughter aspired to be like and finally a clear understanding of how to get our daughter and her team in front of college coaches at top quality tournaments. Our daughter's experience with Stampede Lax has also been a wonderful opportunity to make "life-long" friends with her teammates."
