I am going to be a first-year head coach to our club lacrosse team that will have at least fifteen, low to middle-income freshmen-seniors. While this is not the first year of the program, it is still a young and growing sport in our region of West Virginia.
Our lacrosse program is in dire need of a culture change.
Over the last season, there were fights, arguments, and way too many penalties. By building a strong program based on playing fast on the field but slow in your mind, I hope to get the players to channel their emotions into positivity on the field, in the classroom and in every other aspect of their lives.
It is important to have proper equipment when playing the game of lacrosse. While many students are able to provide their own shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, and sticks; many are not. This causes the kids that cannot buy their own to not be able to play. It is my goal as the current head coach to make lacrosse available to any player that wishes to. Through generous donors we have be able to provide some pairs of pads for players that wish to play, but may not otherwise be able to. I believe that sports should be available to all children no matter what background they come from.
