FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Titan Lacrosse, one of Northeast Oklahoma’s newest competitive travel lacrosse programs, is proud to announce its new affiliation with Texas-based StickStar Lacrosse. This new alliance will provide Oklahomans with access to additional player development resources, excellent coaching, and camps all designed to take each individual lacrosse player’s skill to the next level.
StickStar Lacrosse is happy to welcome another affiliate as part of our growing program, the Titan Sports and Performance Center and Titan Lacrosse based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, said Anthony Crimmins, StickStar Lacrosse Owner and Operator. This marks StickStar’s first big step outside of the Lone Star State, making it a regional source for lacrosse development. This is the eighth program to align itself and we are extremely excited to start working with players from across Oklahoma.
“The Titan Sports and Performance Center, and their Titan Lacrosse program were perfect candidates for our first affiliate outside of the Lone Star State and we are very excited to get north of the Red River. The game is absolutely exploding in Oklahoma and the level of athleticism in their players is already there. Just as any emerging lacrosse market there are already some quality players but above all there is a desire to seek out more instruction and improve. Where there are intellectually curious players yearning for instruction, you’ll find StickStar. We are excited to build upon this great foundation in Oklahoma and the surrounding Tulsa area with Titan!” said Crimmins.
"Tulsa has experienced tremendous growth in both men's and women's lacrosse in recent years. With the large numbers involved in youth lacrosse, we are experiencing great success at adding programs and opportunities for players of all levels to experience and learn the game. We are excited to partner with StickStar as one of their affiliate member programs. The StickStar philosophy and vision for lacrosse fits perfectly with the character and identity of the Titan Lacrosse program and the future of lacrosse across Oklahoma. With the arrival of Titan Sports and Performance Training Center, Titan Lacrosse welcomes the arrival of facilities and fields dedicated to specifically servicing the needs of the lacrosse in this region. We couldn't be more excited to offer StickStar coach and player opportunities to our communities as we strive to accommodate the rapid growth of the sport," said Trevor Wolf, Titan Lacrosse Program Director.
Player & Coaches Development
As with all of the StickStar affiliates we will offer both Seminar Training Opportunities & Coaches development. StickStar’s component based methodology has proved consistent and applicable to players from any area. StickStar’s belief is that at the end of the day if a player trains with StickStar consistently, they will be the best possible version of the player they can be. The ability to transfer skill to players who train consistently is well documented. The ability to transfer skill to coaches is something else StickStar prides itself on. Developing coaches is crucial, and with each seminar StickStar will incorporate a coaches training session to help with the Titan instructors continued education.
With Titan, StickStar will launch its inaugural StickStar 101 Training Camp next fall. At StickStar 101 players from across Oklahoma and the greater Tulsa area will receive quality instruction from both the StickStar Staff and Collegiate Coaches in a quality-training environment. With the 101 series of training camps only 101 players will be admitted to ensure the environment for quality instruction remains intact. A camp, with a number, that only has that number of players. The StickStar 101 camp will become a destination for the top players in Oklahoma to learn, compete, and receive exposure to collegiate coaches.
“For StickStar it’s all about judicious growth and development across the board. This affiliation announcement shows that our training methodology and approach extends outside of our state and can grow appropriately nationwide. We are thrilled!“ said Crimmins.
“Titan Lacrosse is excited that with this new affiliation, we will be able to provide yet another excellent resource to take lacrosse players’ abilities and love for the game to the next level here in Oklahoma. These programs will certainly bring in interested players from all around the state, positively impacting our local economy,” said Wolf. “It’s an exciting time to be a Titan.”
