Who is Plano Lacrosse?
Plano Lacrosse was established in 1991 as the first lacrosse program in Plano and Collin County. We are an independent club that supports students from Kindergarten to High School that attend the Plano Senior High School feeder system in the sport of lacrosse. The Plano Lacrosse Association (PLA) is our non-profit 501(c)3 umbrella organization that is made up of parents and volunteers, and funded entirely by the parents and our generous business sponsors.
To increase growth and retention of our program along with developing better lacrosse players, the Jr. Wildcats Youth Feeder Program that was developed in 2010 merged into PLA in 2012. Our membership is now over 120 families, offering lacrosse from Kindergarten to 12th grade. With a dedicated group of parents that serve as the leadership of the organization and myriad other parents serving key volunteer roles, the PLA functions as the administrative, planning and fundraising element of the organization. Our philosophy is to allow our 'coaches to coach' without being distracted by the administrative functions of the organization.
The coaches of Plano Wildcat Lacrosse are passionate about teaching our young men the sport of lacrosse as well as instilling life long values such as commitment, dedication to hard work, loyalty and team work. All of our coaches at both Varsity and Junior Varsity levels have played at either the high school or collegiate levels or have been coaching youth and/or high school lacrosse for many years.
Plano Wildcat Lacrosse is the original and most established lacrosse program in Plano and Collin County and one of the most respected programs in the State of Texas. The Wildcats have earned a reputation for its style of good play and good sportsmanship.
Since the very beginning, our young men that are the Plano Wildcats have made an impact at the collegiate level. Many Plano Wildcat alumni have played at the collegiate level for clubs teams at Texas A&M, Brigham Young, Texas Tech, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Texas. Colleges and Universities have discovered the lacrosse talent in Texas and especially with the Plano Wildcats. Wildcat alumni have left Plano and gone on to play at schools such as The College of Wooster, Hofstra, Army, Cornell, and Denver. As a testament to the quality of Plano Wildcat Lacrosse, we have had numerous All-District and All-State players since 1991. And since 2006, Plano Wildcat Lacrosse has produced an All-American Goalie (Thomas Palesky, PSHS 2006 - Army); an Academic All-American (James MacGibbon, PSHS 2008 - Army), All-American Attack (Ross Gillum, PSHS 2009 - Cornell); and All-American Midfielder (Hunter Gore, PSHS 2012 - Denver).
