Our coaches are an essential part of our Organization. Not only do they provide our kids the teaching and skill development on the field, they also act as role models to help them develop into young adults. That is why we look for quality individuals to coach and teach at each team level. All coaches are screened through mandated background checks prior to start of the season, and each head coach must be Level I US Lacrosse certified in coaching.
Many of our coaches have played high school and college lacrosse, and often remain involved in adult leagues in the area. We strive to pair Parent Field Assistants with each coach to not only assist in coaching duties, but also to provide our coaches with a parents perspective on the team and game.
