Former Wesleyan AA, Gabe Kelley, played lacrosse in England for Durham.

Editor’s Note: Brett Hughes sent over a new Lacrosse The Pond video, and asked us to publish it. I asked Brett to write a personal introduction to the video, and of course, Mr. Hughes delivered in a major way. Why Lacrosse The Pond? Please allow our boy Brett to explain!

I had heard about people traveling around and coaching teams, or even just playing for teams around the globe, and while that sounded amazing, I just couldn’t pull the trigger. I always wanted to be working toward something…

When I finally sat down to help develop what Lacrosse The Pond would be, and what we could provide for students, it turned out to be a simple homerun.

We offer a great service to get kids a chance to continue to play lacrosse in a new setting, help grow the sport in a place that is lax crazy, and all the while, it sets up a launching pad for European travel, and plenty of adventure.

At the end of your year with new friends, amazing experiences, the knowledge that you are pushing the sport forward, and a Masters degree to top it off, you will know that it was worth it, and an amazing experience.

I am working to develop and offer LTP to everyone simply because I wish more than anything I could have done it, and I am positive I was not, and am not, the only one.


  1. This is a great program, they do everything for you and you get to experience different but wild university lax scene in England. Its not like NCAA or MCLA but is ALLOT of fun!

    To add to that you can travel around Europe on the low-cost airlines for example Manchester – Amsterdam can be found for as little £60 return if you fly off peak times. London to Paris is an hour and half away and costs around £50
