My Students

Lacrosse is such a fun sport! I coach a High School Junior Varsity lacrosse team. They are an amazing group of very diverse young ladies from all walks of life that range from 9th to 12th grade. They have a collective high GPA, many take multiple AP and Honors classes, and several are 2-sport athletes, also playing basketball, volleyball or soccer. They are also very involved in extracurricular activities like Robotics, Science Research, and MUN.

My players are hardworking, earnest, dedicated and focused and I am so proud to be their coach!

They work diligently to achieve their goals both on the field and in the classroom. They are learning the techniques and tactics of the sport, but mostly, dedication, teamwork, and cooperation. I hope they enjoy lacrosse so much that they continue to stay active in sports their entire life.

My Project

Your donations will make a huge difference to our team. Right now, we have a very limited number of dumbbells between 5 and 10 lbs in our weight room. We want our girls to start with smaller dumbbells and progress to larger dumbbells so that they use correct form and mechanics. Some of the girls really struggle with larger dumbbells and then become disinterested in weight training due to injury or difficulty.

A gradual progression is the best way to increase strength through workouts.

We also need T-shirts for team practices and on game days for our players to show team spirit and get the student body excited about lacrosse.
