About Us

The PHANTASTIX are middle and high school tournament level teams (grades 3 thru 11) composed of serious lacrosse players who demonstrate great promise, who desire to improve their playing skills and techniques, and who are committed to the sport of lacrosse.  Phantastix teams compete in local tournaments and showcases as well as on the National recruiting tournament circuits. We offer a year round program while supporting the multi-sport athlete.  We have two locations - Wayne, PA area and Lancaster, PA Area (West).

Phantastix primary goal is the full development of the student-athlete.  Our coaching staff is compromised of top collegiate athletes and alumni, many of whom played for Phantastix themselves.  They are passionate about improving the skill set of each of our athletes, while also showing them how to be great teammates and competitors.


The Club strives to develop character, build confidence, and increase the self-esteem of its members through an instructional and supportive team environment.



PHANTASTIX is owned and directed by JoAnn Yusko, Lorraine Beers and Jessica Brophy Lake. Phantastix was founded in 1999 by JoAnn Yusko and Sue Frazier.  As the club continues to grow, in 2023 Jaclyn Klunder was hired to be our Youth Director. The club is supported by a highly experienced group of coaches and strives to support its players in all aspects of their development.   Many of our coaches are top collegiate players and alumni of our club. Over the past 24 years, Phantastix players and coaches have contributed to the growth of lacrosse in the Philadelphia area and nationally.

Our Phantastix West Division was founded in 2018 based out of Central PA (Lancaster Area).  This is run and directed by Claudia Ovchinnikoff.

Phantastix is committed to growing the game and sharing our passion of lacrosse. In 2023, Phantastix introduced our Little Laxers Program for grades K-5th. Little Laxers is Phantastix's introductory youth lacrosse program dedicated to teaching lacrosse to young athletes in a fun and creative environment.  This highly successful program is directed by Monica O'Brien.



Phantastix has been highly successful in helping our players achieve their goal of playing at the next level whether it be D1, D2, or D3.  We strongly believe in helping our players find the right fit for them so they can thrive at the collegiate level.  Lorraine Beers has over 25 years of college recruiting experience and Jess Lake has well over ten years.  They provide honest communication and feedback to all of our athletes and families throughout the process, guiding you through the maze that is college recruiting without charging you extra.  We believe that with our brand name and network coupled with our years of experience gives us a competitive edge in the marketplace.
