FEATURED ON THE PORT WASHINGTON MAMA BLOG:
Due to popular demand, Medusa Lacrosse, the Garden City community’s premier, go-to youth lacrosse program is expanding to our area with a new clinic at Christopher Morley Park this Spring! The Little Laxers program has introduced thousands of children ages 3-8 to the sport and helped nurture a love and passion for the game.
The program is known for its energy, positivity, creativity and ability to break down all the core concepts and fundamentals into fun drills and games that are challenging, competitive and appeal to those children who are hesitant to try a new sport.
"Psssst…. Founders, Alex and Jackie Fiore are friends of mine from High School and are two of the most inspirational, talented, and all around awesome women I know (make sure to read their bios on the website). They have a passion for the game (they always have!) and a positive energy that’s infectious. If your little ones are interested in a beginner lax program, this is *the one* to register for!" - Amanda Khalil aka Port Washington Mama
FEATURED IN SARATOGA TODAY NEWSPAPER:
SARATOGA SPRINGS — Established in 2011 in Garden City, Long Island, a hot bed for talented lacrosse players, Medusa Lacrosse is continuing their expansion upstate into Saratoga. Founded by two sisters, Jackie and Alex Fiore, Medusa Lacrosse aims to teach young athletes the fundamentals of the game. And Jackie and Alex certainly know them – both sisters played on top-tier NCAA Division I programs, Boston College and Princeton University, respectively.
Next month, August 15-18, Medusa Lacrosse is hosting their summer “Little Laxers” clinic at the East Side Rec in Saratoga, located on Lake Avenue. The camp is open to both boys and girls ages pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. The format is simple, the first hour will focus on skill development, the last 30 minutes will be scrimmages.
While Medusa Lacrosse has operated for over a decade, their “Little Laxers” program in Saratoga first ran in 2021. However, it was an instant success. Just ask Jill, a Saratoga mother of a three-year-old, “our daughter grew so much as a player on and off the field. As one of the youngest players we were worried she would get lost in the shuffle. Jackie and the entire Medusa coaching staff went above and beyond for every player. They not only taught fundamental principles of lacrosse for beginners, but instilled focused practice and skill building throughout the entire clinic. As a former lacrosse player myself, it was important for my daughter to learn from someone with the right experience. I am so glad Jackie and the team made the decision to share their expertise with the youth of Saratoga.”

"I just wanted to thank you for being so wonderful with these kids, especially mine of course. They really think the world of you and your whole team at Medusa, the way you guys spend time with each one of these kids is so appreciated by us parents but most of all the kids really take to that and that's what keeps them coming back...they really feel so proud of what they've accomplished. I know you've heard it before but can't say thank you enough. Not enough people in this world like you that has that ability."

"Justin has participated in a lot of sports programs and I have to say you truly do an amazing job and offer such a wonderful program. My husband and I were so excited when Medusa Little Laxers began at program on the North Shore. My four-year-old son LOVES going to practice. He wakes up every day asking if he has lacrosse and what the theme is going to be. He constantly asks us to take him outside now to practice what he has learned. The coaches have such a contagious energy that makes learning fun! At the first practice I was immediately impressed by the coach's ability to keep the kids moving and engaged. Thank you, Medusa!
