Welcome to Storm Lacrosse
Welcome to our web site dedicated to the boys & girls; players in Coastal Virginia - including beginners, intermediate and advanced players. Our goal is to try to supply you with everything you need to know about playing lacrosse, and to help you to become the best player you can be.
Our South Beach Storm teams participate in the Hampton Roads Lacrosse League (HRLax), and it's region extends from Virginia Beach to Suffolk, from Williamsburg to the Outer Banks (NC), and all points in between. Bottom line, if you live in the region then there is a team for you - boys and girls youth, boys and girls HS, and this includes the co-ed soft stick program for 5 & 6 year olds.
My name is Scott Holava and I will be one of the boys coaches, mentors and trainers throughout this season. We are excited to work with your child and to help him or her reach their full potential as a lacrosse player. We want to try to help your family with everything there is to know about participating in and playing the game of lacrosse in Virginia Beach. I have been around the game of lacrosse my entire life and I was lucky enough to be surrounded by great coaches, teammates and family members who were instrumental to my success on and off the field. To learn more about me and the rest of the South Beach Coaches, visit to the Coaches section and check out our bios.

For you coaches out there, we understand that you may already know a lot about the game. But, like anything else, it’s always good to keep your mind open and see if you can pick up a few things here and there from others. That’s how the top coaches in the game keep making their teams better and better. We have been working with youth and high school teams for several years now as coaches and administrators, and we believe that we have a great system to raise quality lacrosse players and excellent human beings.
This whole site is for you to learn more about the sport that your son or daughter loves! Not to mention, this is a great way for you to learn how to pick up a stick if you have never done so before, and spend some quality time with your child doing something that can have a huge positive impact on their lives!
