About Us

Carolina Brigade was formed in 2014 to combine the organization put forth by the Greenville Gladiators Youth Lacrosse organization and the lacrosse skills and instruction brought by Richie Meade's Brigade Lacrosse.

Carolina Brigade is a non-profit youth lacrosse organization focusing on boys lacrosse for kids beginning at age 6. Our goal as an organization is to teach youth lacrosse players the fundamental skills and concepts of lacrosse through positive coaching, excellent communication, and fast-paced play with a strong emphasis on teamwork, good sportsmanship, and leadership.

The coaches at Carolina Brigade are taught how to teach these skills by Coach Richie Meade, who conducts weekly coaching clinics and prepares detailed practice plans for our group. We then have an on site managing coach to educate players and coaches during practice. Coach Meade's bio is below:

Head Coach of Men's Lacrosse Team at Furman University
Head Coach of USA Men's National Lacrosse Team
Senior Fellow at Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership at US Naval Academy
