Who we are

The Buffalo Lacrosse Academy and its Team Buffalo teams are the oldest continually operated college lacrosse preparatory club in Western New York.  It began in 2005 and has merged with other local groups and evolved dramatically over time.  Prior to Team Buffalo's (and formerly the Buffalo Wings and South Buffalo Lacrosse) inception, area lacrosse players who did not make the former Empire State Team, were essentially left to fend for themselves with the support of their high school coaches.


Team Buffalo's mission is to develop strong lacrosse bonds between players from all different backgrounds, help them develop their lacrosse abilities, ensure they get tremendous college lacrosse exposure, support them through the college recruiting process, and provide ongoing lacrosse opportunities beyond high school (both on and off the field).

  • We are most proud that Buffalo Lacrosse Academy and Team Buffalo has helped more boys have successful college lacrosse careers than few others in the nation!  We do this by helping the player and the family find the 'best fit' college for each unique athlete.   (Click Here to see the List)
  • We are the only lacrosse club in WNY that has a full-time director of lacrosse operations and player development in Michael Carbery.  Carbery is the former Assistant Athletic Director at Medaille College and current Medaille College Head Mens Lacrosse Coach.  He and the rest of the staff pride themselves on running a family friendly, yet competitive program.
  • For our u17 and u15 players we will provide the most extensive college recruiting support possible.  This includes: emailling every college coach player profiles, call coaches, meet with you and your family to discuss the college recruiting process, offer a college recruiting seminar, proactively promote you to the college coaches, post your player profile online with video (click here) and provide game tape from summer games.
