More About Coach Brett

I am currently the head Varsity Lacrosse Coach at Kingswood Oxford School - For the past 10 years, I have worked and ran lacrosse camps/clinics around the country. I have also volunteered as a coach at Connecticut College Mens Lacrosse in 2015 and at Hall High School from 2016-2018. Regarding personal instruction, I have been a free lance coach and worked within the camps and clinics I have been a part of. You can check out my website at: www.checksticks.com

Played my college career at UMass Amherst - Graduated in '07 and helped lead the 2006 team to the programs first ever final four and national championship appearance. I was team captain, all-league, offensive MVP, and an All-American during my time at UMass. After college, I played 7 years in Major League Lacrosse for the Boston Cannons, Ohio Machine, and Rochester Rattlers.

My first objective it to get some kind of idea of the skills the player currently has. If the player is new to the sport, I will go through the basic fundamentals of how to use, control, and protect their stick. Being comfortable with your lacrosse stick is one of the most important elements, and I feel new players should learn how to throw, catch, cradle, first before taking the next step. For more experienced athletes, I get an idea on specific parts of their game they want to work on by asking questions. From there, I will develop drills that are as close to game-like scenario's as possible. I will also teach players drills they can work on at home in which they can do on their own time. There are so many aspects that go into teaching, so I try to watch the player go through the drills, and then made adjustments as needed to maximize their use of the concepts.

Client Reviews

Brett has been a great coach for my son. My son picked up lacrosse less than a year ago and needed some help with proper techniques in passing, shooting, stick work and dodging. My son improved in all of these areas after the lessons and some practice.

Brett has a positive and supportive approach that really connected with my son and helped build his passion for the game.

Coach Brett is a real nice guy and was very Professional / positive with boys. My son is new to LAX and Loved his session. Amazing how much he learned in an hours time. Brett was easy to deal w/, quick reply's and came to us for session, That tells you about his passion for coaching. We are already looking to get in more sessions. Need a LAX coach-Look no further.

Coach Brett is terrific. My son immediately asked for more lessons with Brett as soon as he was finished. Brett pushed my son to strengthen and build his lacrosse skills as he gets ready for the season, and had fun too!

Coach Brett was a pleasure to work with and my son was able to gain a lot of knowledge and skills through just the initial session. My son is new to Lacrosse and while Brett clearly has expertise working with more skilled players, he was able to provide him with initial fundamentals and confidence as he prepares for participation on the high school team. I'd highly recommend him to players of all levels.

Coach Brett was amazing. My 10 year old son Dustin learned many intricate details on the basic fundamentals of passing,shooting, and dodging He took an honest interest in Dustin gave him plenty of things to think and work on at home. Dustin can't wait for his next session with coach Brett.

Thank you
