Lou Gonzales- Little Dukes/Dukes Lacrosse Academy & Doug Bailey- Blue Mtn Lacrosse

Lou Gonzales- Little Dukes/Dukes Lacrosse Academy & Doug Bailey- Blue Mtn Lacrosse

The Little Dukes-Blue Mtn Lacrosse merger is designed for 2nd grade through 6th grade players to get superb training year-round with the great coaching staff headed by Lou Gonzales and his brother Desi Gonzales.

Our Blue Mtn coaching staff will be joining forces with the Little Dukes to offer the year round training opportunities, with both our U11 coaches Jeremy Adams (Hempfield HS Head Coach) and Guy Hornig (Lampeter-Strasburg Youth Coach) helping to create this new opportunity with Little Dukes-Blue Mtn.

You will find that the Gonzales' are both very positive, energetic and committed to coaching 'our boys up" as you found with our Blue Mtn Youth in the past.  This merger allows me to be able to give our Central PA elementary players the best coaching in the area and opportunities for growth in the all encompassing Dukes-Blue Mtn Lacrosse program from our most talented players to our players wanting to develop their skills and make the most of their time learning the game.


How did Blue Mountain Lacrosse get its name?

Blue Mountain is a geographical mountain that extends from the Poconos to North-Central Maryland  through Pennsylvania; it divides the Appalacian Mountain Range from the lower valleys of South-Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania.  

Blue Mountain Lacrosse started as an organization assigned to take team(s) to the Pennsylvania Keystone Games competition, in particular players from the Lancaster Lebanon and Berks Counties.

Today, Blue Mountain offers student-athletes the chance to develop and compete on the highest level of club lacrosse in the country; we take pride in developing and providing opportunities for our student athletes to compete against the best players and teams in the United States and Canada, helping our players ready to play at the next level in college.

Blue Mountain Lacrosse also takes great pride in developing young coaches and helping all coaches who become involved with Blue Mountain become better stewards and teachers of the game.

Here's how Wikipedia describes the geographical area called Blue Mountain:
