Message from the Coach
Our Vision for the Paul VI Boys Lacrosse program is to be the “Most Respected High School Lacrosse Program in Virginia and the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area”. Our Program Mission is first and foremost, to help our student-athletes Achieve their Potential as High Character Student Athletes. Secondly, we want our players to learn what it takes to prepare to compete at the highest level, both individually and as part of a team. Finally, we want to help our players attend the best colleges that align with their personal and family goals.
We have made great progress since the 2013 season, in achieving our Boys Lacrosse Program Vision and Mission. We have consistently had a Team GPA of 3.5 or higher over the past 7 years, with 50%+ of our players achieving a 3.5+ GPA each season. We have compiled a record of 112-43 (2013-2019) against a schedule filled with top nationally ranked opponents over the past 7 spring seasons. Since 2013, our teams have advanced to compete in 6 WCAC Semi-Final games, 3 WCAC Title games, 6 VISAA Final Four’s, 3 VISAA championship games and won the VISAA State Title in 2018. Our Program has been ranked in the Top 20 National polls in 4 of the past 7 seasons and in the Wash Post "Top 10" Wash Metro Area Teams in 6 of the last 7 seasons. Our program has also produced 39 D-I recruited commits, 19 D-III recruited commits and 2 D-II recruited commits over the past 7 years.
Our Boys Lacrosse Program plays one of the most demanding schedules in the nation. We compete against top regional and nationally ranked teams in two of the top conferences in the nation (WCAC & VISAA)
We will also compete against top regional and nationally ranked teams in our Out of Conference Schedule. And, we compete against some of the top teams in the nation in summer and fall off-season High School Showcase Tourney events that are attended by Top College Program Coaching Staffs . This provides our players with outstanding recruiting exposure.
Our Program Priorities are (1) Faith & Family, (2) Academics and (3) Lacrosse or your other "in-season" PVI sport. We encourage our student-athletes to play multiple sports and engage in all the activities PVI has to offer. As an example, many of our Boys Lacrosse players serve in Student Government (SGA). Four of the last seven SGA Presidents have been Boys Lacrosse players. Like most Catholic High Schools, we also stress a strong commitment to service, for those in need.
We are continuing to build on the foundation of success achieved over the past 7 seasons. We cannot fulfill our Program Vision & Mission without the financial resources provided by our main annual fundraiser – The Boys Lacrosse Media Guide. Direct sponsor contributions and funds raised via our Media Guide advertisements help defray the costs of program operations, team equipment, team supplies, team travel, team training, uniforms, field rentals, team meals and our program community service activities.
To our current and past sponsors, THANK YOU for helping us build our foundation for success. We hope you will proudly continue to support our PVI Boys Lacrosse Program. For potential new sponsors, we look forward to adding you to the list of those who are helping us build the most respected High School lacrosse program in Virginia and the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area.
