What I enjoy most about coaching:

One on one interactions with the players.  I enjoy the X’s and O’s of lacrosse, but to me getting to know and bonding with each of my players is the best part of coaching.  I love that each season is a different journey, but the goals are always the same; improve every day and push ourselves to do things we didn’t think possible the beginning of the season.

Our Frog lacrosse program is different because:

One word…. family.  Our program cares more about the players, their development both on and off the field than wins.  Don’t get me wrong we train and compete to win, but winning is never placed above development.

When I’m not coaching lacrosse, I like to:

Go camping with my wife and 2 kids.  I really enjoy watching my kids participate in their sports like karate, basketball, swimming, and lacrosse.
