SAN FRANCISCO - Jan. 16, 2014 - PRLog -- Golden Gate Elite Lacrosse Merges with All West Lacrosse

- January 16, 2014 – All West Lacrosse (AWL), Northern California’s leading lacrosse training, travel teams and camp company, announced today that Golden Gate Elite Lacrosse (GGE) will merge operations to expand and enhance All West Lacrosse's All West Elite travel team division.

“With the addition of the Golden Gate Elite  program, the All West Elite (AWE) travel team program is enhanced with a team that has focused and dedicated itself to helping players in the pursuit of college aspirations.” said Matt Ogelsby, President and founder of All West Lacrosse. With operations and events throughout the Bay Area, All West Lacrosse has succeeded in developing tens of thousands of players throughout their lacrosse experience. AWL is well known for its superior after school programs, camps, clinics, leagues, other programs and tournaments. AWL year round programs develop players from kindergarten through high school, preparing for their college lacrosse experience. This merger represents the company’s continuous effort to increase value to customers and improve operations. Matt added “one of my great joys has been when one of my players comes back from college to work with us, gives back to the community and teaches the All West methodology and lessons learned through RAE (Respect, Attitude, Effort).”

Golden Gate Elite Lacrosse will operate as AWE Golden Gate. Its program will be enhanced with the addition of the AWL operations expertise, brand recognition and additional resources. “We are excited for our players and their families.” said Ed Hill, Jr. GGE principal and co-founder. “This is about putting out the best product for our players and families” he added. “Joining All West gives us a boost to the next level while maintaining our commitment to a well-organized, safe and satisfying travel team experience.” added Jeffrey Mills, GGE head coach.

The 2014 season for all AWE travel teams will kick off January 25th, 2014 tryouts at Treasure Island. Highlights of the program go beyond the typical season tournaments including multi-day training camp staying and practicing at Bryant University before the tournament and an optional college tour at several East Coast colleges. Additional information for the tryouts and the entire season can be found on the All West Lacrosse website
