Current Team
Hooligans HS
Adam Wirtz started Misfits Lacrosse in 2014 as a travel field lacrosse team. The program’s new focus is on developing East Valley box lacrosse. There is simply no better way to improve upon fundamentals, stick work, athleticism and toughness than to play box lacrosse. Lacrosse has evolved, it is faster, more accurate and skilled. For players to succeed at this level they can not rely on field lacrosse alone. They need to become a complete player. This is why college programs and youth clubs in the east are adding box lacrosse training as a priority. Our goal is to fill every division possible from Novice to High School, giving them the best coaching, and maintaining a competitive level so they can succeed as college players.
