“We are thrilled to expand the Roughrider brand to Virginia. Over the years, Richmond has become a regular part of the Corrigan Sports Schedule as we host 5 events there every year and the Maryland Roughriders have been competing in events there for 5 years, so expansion to Richmond certainly makes sense” Said Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports and Founder of the Roughrider Lacrosse club.
The Roughrider Lacrosse Club is excited to welcome the Virginia Roughriders to our organization!
Based in Richmond, the Virginia Roughriders will be led by Brian Watson and Jeff Harvey with a talented stable of coaches from in and around the area. The Virginia Roughriders intend to consolidate the state’s most talented players by providing players with elite development, optimal exposure and recruitment opportunities. Virginia Roughriders will represent this broader outreach and approach, and include players from the Hampton Roads, Richmond, Charlottesville, Staunton and Northern Virginia areas.
“The introduction of the Roughriders in Virginia marks a huge step forward for lacrosse in the region. The Roughriders bring not only an elite program for youth development, but also an organization that leads the pack in college recruitment and exposure. With the backing and support of Corrigan Sports, the organization that runs the Under Armour All-American Lacrosse Game, the IMLCA National Cup, the NCAA Future Champions and a number of other well-known regional and national competitions, the Virginia Roughriders are uniquely positioned to bring unparalleled resources, advancement and competition to Virginia’s lacrosse players. No other program in the region benefits from that type of infrastructure and backing. ” Said Brian Watson, Virginia Roughrider Director.
The Roughriders and CSE are no stranger to the Virginia area as Corrigan Sports hosts a number of lacrosse and field hockey events throughout the year in the greater Richmond corridor. With the established connections and the reputable coaches slated to lead the charge, the Virginia Roughriders are eager to get on the field and head into 2018.
