ONCE DIVIDED…Team 24/7 and Team Carolina Ink Partnership to Create CAROLINA 24/7.
Team 24/7’s Ryan Flanagan and Team Carolina’s Michael Desmond have agreed to pool their resources at the high school level, to create the area’s only truly elite high school lacrosse program called CAROLINA 24/7.
Ryan Flanagan will serve as CAROLINA 24/7’s Program Director handling the team selections, tournament selections, coaching staff, player development, and as the recruiting coordinator where he will assist/advise players and their families with the college recruiting process. Michael Desmond will step away from the high school portion of the partnership, handling only organizational type tasks for CAROLINA 24/7 and continue his concentration on the growth of youth lacrosse in the greater Charlotte area.
At the youth travel level, 8thgrade and younger, both programs will continue to operate independently to serve and develop future CAROLINA 24/7 participants.
CAROLINA 24/7 will attract the very best players in the region and compete at top events such as the Baltimore Summer Kick-Off, Baltimore CrabFeast, Naptown Challenge, NXT Philly Summer and Fall Invitational, NLF National Championships, Towson Autumn Gold, Big 4 Champions League and more. The merger at the high school level will also provide the best-of-the-best player development opportunities throughout the year.
“It’s a win-win for the high-level, serious lacrosse players in the area. I have been preaching for years that we need more youth development programs in the area and less elite travel teams at the high school level. If you are a top-level athlete, this partnership was created for you. I can’t think of a more qualified person in the area to lead this new venture than Ryan Flanagan. I am excited for the players and their parents, and looking forward to dedicating more of my time to area youth lacrosse development.” Mike Desmond, Team Carolina.
“Our goal with CAROLINA 24/7 was to create the highest-level teams that have ever come out of this region by uniting the top players and creating the optimal training environment for them year-round.” Said CAROLINA 24/7 Program Director Ryan Flanagan. “Mike and I strongly believe that creating teams that are consistently competitive at the top events in the country will do great things for lacrosse in North Carolina and South Carolina. Mike has done incredible things for lacrosse in the Carolinas over the last 20 years and I give him a ton of credit for helping to develop this partnership. I could not be more excited for the future of lacrosse in the area.”
