More About Coach Alexander

Now entering my fourth straight year as a coach in the Weston Trojans High School boys program, I've also served as an assistant coach at my alma mater, Ohio Wesleyan University. In addition, I was previously the Head Coach at Southern Connecticut State University, while also coaching at the middle school level for three years in Westport. Over the years, I've been fortunate to serve as a staff member at numerous camps, working hard with both girls and boys - spanning from the kindergarten level all the way to the collegiate ranks. I also enjoy helping with several youth clinics as well each year. CPR and First-Aid certified, I am also a certified Coach in the state of Connecticut.

***I currently instruct student athletes spanning from second grade up to college - on an individual basis. As a former midfielder who later converted to defense, I truly understand all facets of the game and am equally confident coaching any position - including goalies - who I currently work with as well.

I take great pride and joy in honing in on what can push a player to a level yet to be reached - utilizing one's greatest strengths while working hard to build confidence in all other areas. I always preach the importance of the never-ending quest to maximize one's potential, all while having fun and maintaining a passionate and upbeat mindset.

Confidence in one's self, an unwavering work ethic, and the ability to recognize that no obstacle is insurmountable are a few key objectives that I emphasize to those I am fortunate enough to work with in this great sport.

After playing for Fairfield Prep and Greens Farms Academy in High School, I played in college at Ohio Wesleyan University, where our program reached tremendous heights, earning an NCAA Final Four appearance, garnering three conference championships, and securing four consecutive NCAA tournament appearances in my time there. I worked very hard to earn all-conference honors twice during my time in The Buckeye State.

My work ethic was taken to an entirely new level thanks to the guidance of Head Coach Lelan Rogers - who now coaches at Syracuse University - as I started on campus as one of 75 players and went on to earn All-Conference Honors in both my junior and senior seasons, before staying on campus following graduation to serve as an Assistant Coach for one final campaign.

Once I graduated and stayed on campus to coach one more year, I recognized my unwavering passion for what I currently do: share all that I've learned - from tremendous coaches and fellow players - about what it takes to make strides every single day - both big and small - with kids of all ages.

Whether your son or daughter has never picked up a lacrosse stick in their life, or if they are experienced and seeking the guidance to propel their game to a new level, I am equally motivated to deliver in helping to maximize their potential every single time we meet.

First off, I want students of all ages - and any skill level - always having fun and building their confidence, while learning to embrace the endless benefits of hard work. I will also suit up plenty in full pads - to demonstrate and help push players to new heights, so we can run thru drills literally in tandem. I always make sure our sessions are engaging, full of learning, and constant progression, because at the end of the day, you get what you give.

As an offensive midfielder who later transitioned to Defense & LSM, I understand and appreciate all areas of the game, so a typical session will cater to the age, skill level, and desired lacrosse position of the participant. In a typical session, an array of crucial aspects - both from a lacrosse standpoint as well as a fitness and educational standpoint - will be featured.

*** I currently train short sticks, defenders, and a goalie as well. From a second grader to a collegiate player, my clients have a wide array of skill levels, goals, and requests each and every time we meet. I am always introducing new drills, listening to my players, and truly making the most of the allotted time we have together in action.

Everything from stick skills to footwork, positioning to lacrosse principles, will be a focal point for those I work with. A normal session can consist of position-specific lacrosse drills, from basic stick work to discussing different scenarios, along with agility drills. The bottom line is unwavering development; always eager to become better than you were yesterday.

As a player progresses and begins to realize one's true potential, the confidence gained is truly a sight to behold.

And in the immortal words of legendary coach John Wooden, "confidence comes from being prepared."

Coach Alex Was great. He worked with Markus on the his fundamentals of shooting as well As his ability to catch and shoot on the fly. They came off of a plan for a future sessions. Markus is excited about the prospect of working with Alex in the future. Alex was knowledgeable and professional.

Coach Wiser is a knowledgeable, energetic and widely respected coach. He always pushes his players to achieve their maximum potential. Through his vast knowledge of drills and upbeat attitude, the team is kept in a constant state of engagement and growth as both players and men. He is a highly approachable coach who connects with his players to enhance their development, and he contributed greatly to the expansion of my skills and my lacrosse I.Q. Overall, his knowledge & style of coaching is unique, and I recommend that everyone take advantage of his abilities. ~Jason Baisley, 2x All State performer, 3x All Conference & team captain. Weston class of '18 & current Colby College student athlete.
Alex's commitment and dedication to getting the job done was evident at Ohio Wesleyan. On and off the field, Alex was a great leader and a very passionate individual. To this day, Alex remains committed and excited about helping people and getting the job done right. -Bob Dociato - former teammate at Ohio Wesleyan - certified youth coach and referee - Columbus, OH
It's been a pleasure to get to know Alex while coaching together at Weston. A truly motivational coach - yet also keen on the skills and characteristics necessary to build both a competitive team and a driven individual - he emphasizes hard work and the importance of team. A former standout collegiate player who truly went "all out" every time he took the field, it certainly shows in the way he approaches building up all the kids he works with. I would undoubtedly recommend Alex as a lacrosse coach at any level. John Threshie Jr. -Westport Youth Head Coach -North Carolina Defense, Final Four Participant -Weston D-Coordinator
