Arlington Lagrange Lacrosse Club
Founder, President, Coach, Friend
Sadly, after a long illness, League Founder, President, and Coach John Joseph Basso, Esq., passed away peacefully at home on Sunday May 22, 2016 surrounded by his wife and children. He was 63 years old.
Coach Basso, along with Coach Arenson are responsible for bringing this great sport and league to a community in which it did not previously exist.
Coach Basso somehow found the time to juggle family, work, and high school coaching responsibilities to establish and run a program that we all now benefit from. In addition to his very active and successful professional life, Coach Basso coached lacrosse at Arlington High School at both the Varsity and Junior Varsity levels for over 10 years. Coach Basso was a lifelong athlete. In high school, he was a standout athlete and leader on both the football and lacrosse fields. His athletic career continued in college as a proud member of the 1972 Hobart College National Championship Lacrosse Team, which has been recognized as a “Team of Distinction.” He had a deep love of the “creator’s game,” which he continued to play well into his fifties and that he passed on to countless children over the course of his lifetime. He was extremely proud of his role of coach both on and off the field.
Coach Basso’s hard work and tireless dedication to the game of lacrosse and our community, has laid the foundation and provided the building blocks for this program’s current and future successes. In a relatively short period of time this club has produced players that not only succeeded at the high school level but went on to compete and succeed at the Collegiate Division I,II,III and club levels. To date, over 1,000 boys and girls have come through the Arlington-Lagrange youth program, Where they not only learned how to play the game, but more importantly, to love the game.
The Arlington-Lagrange Lacrosse Club has provided many opportunities for all of our families and we cannot thank Coach Basso enough. Words cannot describe Coach Basso’s contribution and impact on the game of lacrosse and this community. He will be greatly missed by all.
Calling hours for Coach Basso will be on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 from 3pm to 8pm at the Timothy P. Doyle Funeral Home, 371 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie, New York 12603.

Hope this e-mail finds you well! After 15 amazing years of No Limit Lacrosse Camp, we are excited to announce Paul Carcaterra's Hometown Lacrosse Camp, in Bedford, NY (Rippowam-Cisqua School) from June 27th-30th, 2016. Paul Carc’s Hometown Lax gives us the unique opportunity to expose young players to the important aspects of the game, the same players who share our roots (Westchester County). Young players today compete in more games than ever, often times sacrificing reps, skill development, and position specific training techniques.
We would like to offer you and your Arlington Lacrosse players an exclusive discount. Please use the discount code "arlington2016"for $25 OFF the price of registration. This is a great opportunity for your players to build their skills and techniques from some of the best in the game.
Creating a curriculum that gives each player the blueprint to train is our mission. Be prepared to take part in a camp where you get tons of touches during skill stations, learn the intricacies of your position, watch demonstrations from the best players in the game, participate in contests, and play in fast paced Hometown Games (4v4 and 5v5). PCarc's Hometown Lax is also the spot for the most lacrosse give-a-ways (heads, shafts, gloves, and apparel) in the UNIVERSE!
Click www.pcarcshometownlax.com for all the camp information you will need. The first 15 campers to sign-up with receive a Maverik Optik Head on the first day of camp, the head of choice of MLL Offensive MVP and Duke All-American/National Champion Jordan Wolf.
