Few Words About Us

We do things a bit differently, and thatí»s the way we like it!

Our Mission

Brotherly Love Lacrosse Academy, LLC represents a strategic initiative with Philadelphia based teams to offer a competitive alternative for families desiring to supplement the community lacrosse experience. Our mission is to facilitate community-based talent and provide them with elite coaching so they can compete with any club in the country.

Our Story

Brotherly Love Lacrosse Club, was started in the Spring of 2014. Jonathan Nurry and Wade Goldt founded the program as an alternative to the traditional youth lacrosse club. Our formula is simple. Focus on excellent athletes provide them with quality coaching and let them evolve into excellent lacrosse players.

In addition, we place a premium on being sensitive to family finances and schedules. Our model is a hybrid of parent coaches augmented with elite players and coaches from Major League Lacrosse (MLL), National League Lacrosse (NLL) and college ranks. We strive to field teams capable of competing with any team in the country. We believe that finances should never be a deterrent to a player that wants to play club lacrosse. We encourage any interested player to try out for one of our teams.

Our scheduling goals are simple as well, less is more. By focusing on playing soccer, football, basketball, wrestling, swimming and family vacations in lieu of incessant practicing we strive for balance. We let players choose what clinics, skills sessions, and off-season programs that make sense for their families.

Our very first Team, 2023 Zeus, is an example of what community alliances, great kids from great families, and excellent athletes that are taught the game of lacrosse can accomplish together.

Play Hard, Play Fast, Play Together
