More About Coach Drew

I have been playing and coaching lacrosse for more than 25 years. I love the sport and want to help young players develop their skills so they can be successful at the next level. I believe the best way to improve your game is to master the fundamentals.

I have experience working with players on the youth and high school levels - from beginners picking up a stick for the first time to players on the verge of playing in college.

Each session will include work on stick skills, footwork, position specific skills and team concepts. Other skills can be added after evaluating the individual player's strengths.

We will start with a quick stretch. Stick skills and ball handling, because they are so important to all other aspects of the game will come next. We will then work on body position and footwork. From there we will move to position specific drills and skills and "team" concept points and field/game awareness. We will end with another stretch and warm-down. The schedule of each session can and will be adjusted to focus on the specific areas most valuable to the individual player's needs.

Client Reviews

Coach Drew is a great coach! He sets very specific individualized goals, instantly helped with confidence and is highly movitating and positive. I highly recommend Coach Drew.

My daughter just had her first lesson with Coach Drew. He did an awesome job with her today. He is very knowledgeable and is very patient while training. My daughter is looking forward to her next lesson.

Really enjoyed todays session. Coach Drew started from the very basics and we saw improvement right away.

Excellent first session - beginner so Coach went over basics and gave my son homework and drills to work on till next session. My son is very motivated and pleased with the one on one coaching.

Coach Mack's coaching style is unique in that he takes care to develop each individual as a lacrosse player and as a young man. He knows what he's doing, is supportive, and develops each player's potential so they may gain what it takes to excel at the next level, in both athletics and life.
