The Pittsburgh travel lacrosse scene has been very fluid since the first off season team emerged in 2007. This fluidity has fractured the region. Athletes are now driving to Maryland, Michigan, and Philadelphia to be free agents on out of area teams. After a successful first year field a Pittsburgh specific field travel team, 412 Elite, formerly AR Pittsburgh, is looking forward to uniting Western Pennsylvania lacrosse players and elevating the sport in the region.
What makes 412 Elite different?
Club Program vs. Travel Team
412 Elite is a club program, not a travel team that rarely practices. We offer over 100 hours of training August through June. These training hours are front loaded to ensure athletes are primed to make an impact for their respective school team in the spring.
Proven Recruiting Placement
412 Elite is the new Pittsburgh specific name for American Revolution Lacrosse which was formed by 2003 Mt. Lebanon graduate Peter Tumbas when he was the head coach at for Indiana University's (IN) MCLA program. Coach Tumbas has been in the club lacrosse world for the last five years and has sent over 80 athletes to D1, D2, D3, and MCLA schools. Consistency is the greatest barometer of our matriculation success.
412 Elite is operated by two full time employees, Peter Tumbas (Seneca Valley varsity head coach) and Dom Perella (Peters Township varsity assistant). The club is not a hobby or a way to supplement an existing income. The club is not run by a manager who has to report to an out of state head quarters. 412 Elite is run by Pittsburgh lacrosse coaches for Pittsburgh lacrosse athletes.
