2017 Internationals

SPLC welcomes this year's international players from the United States

Surrey Park Lacrosse Club has invited and is hosting two very accomplished players from the United States to play this year in the SPLC State League Team. As is the tradition the international players will bring in their skills not only to add to the senior teams abilities but also (where possible) to interact / coach / mentor the budding juniors at our club. We would welcome all Junior Parents as well as Club Members to meet the internationals when possible and make them feel welcome at our club. Below is some introductory information on both...

Connor Whipple

Conor is a 6'0, 195lb attackman that comes from Tampa Bay in Florida. He played High School Lacrosse at Saint Andrews in Boca Raton guiding them to two State Championships and was three times an All American.

He went to Georgetown Uni originally before transferring to the University of Tampa under his father's coaching. His recent record speaks for itself with 46 goals and 50 assists in 2015-16 season, good for many accolades along the way.

Conor will arrive after the NCAA finals in late May. He is hoping to take the Spartans to the DII finals in Boston. We look forward to him giving the State League defences plenty of headaches this season....

Josh Tordik

Josh is a 5'7, 155lb attacking midfielder who played with our friends Kyle and JT Weber at Endicott University. Hailing from Sayville in New York, Josh finished up at Endicott in 2015 and will arrive in Melbourne on March 30th.

His best year was in 2013 when he finished with 15 goals and 34 assists and was named to the All-CCC Honourable mention team. Josh has done plenty of junior coaching in lacrosse and lots of community work in the local area.

We think he will be great with the kids around the club this year and no doubt help SPLC push for that premiership in 2017.
