DOWNINGTOWN, Pa. — Bob Miller and Kevin Goforth were parent volunteers coaching their sons’ LYA lacrosse teams when the boys expressed interest in playing travel club. Both men had the same approach to developing young players and enjoyed working together. They decided to make a go at it to start a program and co-founded Philadelphia Freedom Lacrosse based in Downingtown. It started with four teams in 2012, and within a decade, their numbers increased to 450 players and 20 teams, with athletes coming from the Lehigh Valley, Delaware, New Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania.
