MISSTIX was an independent, volunteer based, local Harford County girls lacrosse club, based in the Bel Air area that has been in existence since 2005. It was founded by Rick Fallin (former Harford Tech Varsity head coach) as a club team to give the girls of the Harford Tech Girls High School team a place to play. The first 2 years the club supported only one HS varsity team.
In 2007, the club expanded to include a HS Junior Varsity team and a Middle School team. In 2008, the club has again expanded and will include 3 high school teams and one middle school team.
In January of 2008, Looney’s Pub approached the MISSTIX club and with their generous sponsorship, the MISSTIX Lacrosse Club made the transition to it’s current form as the Looney’s Lacrosse Club.
In 2009, the Club was expanded to include 6 teams, covering the years, from 6th to 11th grades.
All Looney’s players will receive a high quality education at an affordable price in a friendly yet challenging environment in order to have the opportunity to play against teams from all over the country and be seen by coaches from all over the country.
Our young ladies will be seen competing at the same tournaments as the other clubs in our area. This exposure enhances their chances of receiving financial assistance in the form of academic and athletic scholarships.
Our teams offer a family-friendly lacrosse experience that annually assists student athletes from over 25 different area middle and high schools in their efforts to improve their life skills and lacrosse skills while showcasing themselves to college coaching staffs.
Our organization is NOT just about the business of lacrosse. We feel that lacrosse should be one part of a student-athletes middle and high school experience, and not the focus of it. Competing in other high school sports, meeting the demands of school course loads, and having free time to spend with family and friends is often more important in shaping a player’s character than just playing lacrosse year round. Looney’s emphasizes the ability of a player to lead a balanced life because experience tells us that colleges appreciate the well-rounded student-athlete. Therefore, we strive to strike that balance with our level of tournament and practice participation. Looney’s also knows that family involvement not only makes the experience more enjoyable but is a necessity if the young lady is going to continue her lacrosse career into the collegiate ranks. Therefore, we strive to have family members involved (even if it’s just making brownies for a tournament tailgate) with our organization to assist in and share in their daughter’s successes on and off the field.
Looney’s Men’s Lacrosse
Looney’s first three seasons were extremely successful. We fielded two excellent teams in our first two years. For the 2010 season, we added two more exceptionally talented teams. In these three years, we have won a combined 19 championships and 6 second place finishes! Our goal for 2011 and beyond is to build on our current success, thus making Looney’s Lacrosse Club the premier lacrosse club in our region.
We strive to create a challenging, exciting environment in which boys will have fun, make great friends, and learn to play lacrosse at a high level. We will achieve this through encouragement, positive coaching, strong technical instruction, and a commitment to long-term individual development. Our goal is to develop outstanding lacrosse players and confident young men who excel individually and collectively on and off the field.
