Meet Our Coaches

When it comes to developing elementary and middle school players to excel at the next level, we believe other programs miss the mark.  It's not about how many titles you've won, how many all-americans you've created or how many D-1 scholarships your alumni have been awarded.  It's about understanding how to coach young players on how to be their best while fostering a passion for the game.

Where other programs focus their best coaching talent at the high school level and fill youth teams too often with what's available, we focus exclusively on developing 2nd to 8th grade players.  Olde English is the only program in the area where the youngest players are our top priority.  And when they are ready to step into high school and beyond, our program is fully resourced to help them excel at the next level.

Our coaches have years of experience developing players, expanding their skill set and developing a young player's lacrosse IQ combined with the resources to and partnerships to help our players achieve their academic and athletic goals.
