[Hauppauge, NY] The Long Island Lacrosse Journal is thrilled to announce our partnership with GLE Performance, which is Long Islands’ Lacrosse Training Facility.
To kick off the Spring, GLE and LILJ are creating a new segment that will highlight the best play’s from the LILJ High School Spring Experience. GLE will be hosting the “Top 5 plays of the week” where GLE and LILJ will go through each game and find the five best plays. This segment will start right after the first slate of games, which are set to begin on Sunday, March 14th.
“We are extremely excited to announce this partnership because we want to showcase the best players on the island making the best plays. Many GLE athletes plan to participate in the HSSE league. The top 5 plays of the week will not only include GLE athletes, but any athlete that makes a play we feel deserves to be showcased.” -Cody Swing, Co-Founder of GLE Performance
GLE performance was co-founded by Cody Swing in September 2019 with one goal in mind, provide the best lacrosse training facility on Long Island. GLE provides different opportunities to lacrosse players of all ages. They provide “cutting-edge training methods” aimed to help young lacrosse players reach their goals.
GLE has trained many top lacrosse talents in Long Island that continued their career into college. Some notable DI standouts include Duke freshman attackman & Inside Lacrosse Number 1 recruit in the country, Brennan O’Neill and Duke’s freshman face-off specialist, Jake Naso. Also, one of the top goalies in the Premier Lacrosse League, Jack Concannon also trains with GLE consistently. On the women’s side, GLE works with Long Island’s very own Kylie Ohlmiller, who runs some incredible programming out of GLE, including her Pro Scoring Academy.
While GLE works with some of Long Island’s best, they don’t focus all their time on training the best. They are focused on helping players of all levels improve their game and be their best selves. They provide individual practice sessions, small group training, strength and conditioning, clinics with PLL and WPLL athletes and coaches, and much more!
After a tough 2020, the Long Island lacrosse community was eager to get a stick in their hands to train, learn, and compete. One way atheletes returned to competition in 2020 was at the LILJ Winter League, which included 16 of Long Island’s High School lacrosse programs competing to be crowned champion.
“Almost all of our varsity athletes competed in their winter league and talked about it nonstop while training at GLE. These athletes are excited to compete. After a tough, but rewarding winter session, they are ready to take the field.” -Cody Swing
With 2021 just getting started, Swing says GLE’s goal for the year is simple,
“Continue to supply Long Island’s athletes and coaches with a training facility and trainers that are dedicated to their success.” -Cody Swing
And for the LILJ, we are committed to working alongside GLE Performance to promote all the amazing athletes coming out of their facility.
“GLE Performance has a long term plan to serve Long Island’s lacrosse community at large in a positive way. Cody and Ryan played the game, they love the game, and they work hard to give back to those aspiring to thrive in this game. Those are the type of people we want associated with the LILJ.” -Corey Winkoff, Co-Founder of LILJ
