Miami Lacrosse Club Corp is is an offseason program with the mission to grow the game of lacrosse in South Florida, giving a more personalized and organized experience. Coach Cartelle says before every season, "Everything we do in our club is predicated on accountability, attitude, and effort; which translates on and off the field. It is a privilege to play for our club and players will be pushed to get the most out of this experience."
The club was founded by Erik Cartelle when players and families in the area were looking for an alternative club. During the heart of the COVID pandemic, Cartelle managed to provide lacrosse to a number players in the area when no one wouldn't and avoided any outbreak of the virus. He felt the need to make sure kids stayed engaged socially and got outside to exercise, and lacrosse was the best tool to achieve that. After all COVID restrictions were lifted, Miami Lacrosse Club exploded into the largest lacrosse club in Miami, with over 200+ players tryout in the Summer of '21 and managed 6 teams. In Fall 2021 and Summer 2022, the program had four teams and over 130+ players tryout, and still did not see a drop off in success.
