STS Tarpons
2021 Fall Training and Travel Season 


The STS Tarpons Program is a player development based program for the dedicated lacrosse player that wants to develop his skills and play against some good competition.  In partnership with The Lacrosse Institute (TLI), players will be put through a proven curriculum that develops players skills and IQ better and faster than any program avialable.  There is no program in the state of Florida that offers this level of training. The Tarpons have 10U, 12U, 14U and HS age levels.  


Tarpons Fall Training 2021


This year, the Tarpons are going to offer a 5 week small group training program prior to the start of the Tarpons Fall Season.  This is an intense skill and concept training program that is proven to be the best training available anywhere.  This training is open to any male player aged 8-18. You DO NOT have to have been a part of the Tarpons Family in the past to participate.  The program will be run by TLI owner Coach Todd Francis.  We will run three different age groups (10U, 12U/14U (combined) and HS).
