Our Story

Seattle Starz began 15 years ago and under current co-owners Lewis Ratcliff, Scott Kelly and Rich Schwartz has seen tremendous growth both in numbers and the preparedness of each athlete to play at the next level. The addition of a girls’ program six years ago under Director Lyndsey Gillis has solidified Seattle Starz as the premier lacrosse club for both boys and girls in the Seattle and PNW area.


Why Starz

Seattle Starz is the preeminent lacrosse training program in Washington with a national reputation for player development and collegiate recruitment. Our program is proud to have developed some of the area’s best lacrosse players including numerous high school All Americans.  We have over 100 players currently playing for prominent NCAA D1/D2/D3 college lacrosse programs and now have a couple alumni who are NCAA Champions. We utilize our proven track record of success and our network of college coaching relationships to assist our players in their recruiting efforts.  Seattle Starz has established a tradition of excellence within the game and is dedicated towards the athletic, academic and personal development of the next generation of student athletes.  “Play with the best, against the best.”
