MESA FRESH FEVER LACROSSE HISTORY
Mesa Fresh Lacrosse was founded in 2007 by Bob Aitken with the intent to showcase high school lacrosse players that are highly skilled, but also of high character. Mesa prides itself in teaching how to play the game right – not just attending tournaments. Players are selected based on game performance and contribution to their youth teams along with recommendations by area coaches. Since the inception of Mesa Fresh, its teams have won some of the strongest high school field tournaments. The Philadelphia Fever was founded in 2006 by The Haverford School’s John Nostrant, Travis Loving, and Mark Petrone. They started Fever in order to provide the ultimate summer lacrosse experience for youth lacrosse players in the greater Philadelphia region. In 2013 the programs combined to become the Mesa Fresh Fever Lacrosse Club. The program has become a structured organization that develops your son from Kindergarten to 12th grade. The focus is on individual skill development along with strong team fundamentals and great sportsmanship. We have Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer lacrosse opportunities for players making Mesa one of the only true year round clubs in the area. You have to try out to be considered for a team, even if you have played for Mesa in the past. We encourage you to be a part of the best club lacrosse system around. At the end, you will be a better lacrosse player.
