Wizards Lacrosse was founded in 2013 as a club program and a member of the Edge Sports Center family of clubs. The Edge Sports Center owns and operates the ice and turf facility as well as the East Coast Wizards ice hockey, field hockey and lacrosse programs. For the past two seasons we have been managing NESLL under an operating agreement. We are pleased to announce that, as of today, Wizards Lacrosse will no longer be affiliated with NESLL and will be operated as an independent club program. This will allow us to streamline communications and provide the flexibility to design and manage the program fully in line with our philosophy of player development.
Wizards Lacrosse is comprised of boys and girls teams from 4th grade through high school. The teams practice and play at the Edge Sports Center (www.theedgesportscenter.com) in Bedford, Massachusetts. Our lacrosse staff is comprised of Lacrosse Directors Adrien Peacock (Boys) and Bethany Bush (Girls). The Wizard Lacrosse program is focused on player development throughout the player life cycle. Our emphasis is on helping our athletes become strong lacrosse players and maximizing their potential in the sport.
Our full time staff is experienced in lacrosse coaching and development as well as athletic program management. Please see the brief biographies below outlining their experience and capabilities.
