Our Mission

The Junior Astros Lacrosse Program provides an opportunity for players from Derry, Hampstead, Auburn, Hooksett, Chester as well as the other towns that feed Pinkerton Academy bridging the gap between town and club lacrosse. To play lacrosse at a very high level and at the same time bring together the players on and off the field to build lasting friendships and strong bonds prior to entry into Pinkerton Academy.

The longevity of the program is deeply rooted in the depth of our coaching staff as well as the administration consisting of representatives from both youth organizations. We look to not only raise the level of play at Pinkerton Academy but also to elevate the level of play within the State of New Hampshire.

Our Beliefs

The organization looks to build on the skills being taught at the youth level and provide a venue for those players who show promise as they approach their High School years. Through Elite clinics, tournaments, as well as instruction by former Jr Astors, Pinkerton Academy players, and certified US Lacrosse coaches, our goal is to feed our High School teams with top quality, well-disciplined, enthusiastic lacrosse players.
