More About Coach Derek

I’ve coached athletes from youth to high school, coaching goalies at both the JV and Varsity level at Franklin High School. I’ve conducted Goalie clinics for Franklin Youth Lacrosse as well as being asked to help assist now head coach of the MLL Boston Cannons, Sean Quirk at his Peak Goalie clinic in Springfield, MA. I’ve done 1 on 1 private sessions for youth and high school athletes, working with high school athletes and college coaches to help place student athletes in college programs whether it’s club or even Division 1.

I played goalie for the Franklin High School varsity program which is a Division 1 school from 2011-2015, competing against the top teams in New England. In my senior year I was named Hockomock league all star, Hockomock MVP, as well as named to the second team Massachusetts All American. I was recruited by Umass Lowell (D1) and Boston University (D1) and Utica College (D3) then played a season at Boston University.

All goalies no matter what skill level will start with a stretch and dynamic warm up. We will work without the stick first to assess and maintain hand eye coordination skills then proceed into warm up shots to see how the goalie feels in the crease how he/ she looks and if they’re using any skills talked about in the prior session. Depending on where the goalie is at skill wise, I could be teaching basics: how to hold the stick, how to move in the crease or how to pass. And for more skilled goalies, coaching could include how to direct a defense, initiating a clear, cutting down angles, outside of the crease play, tough angle shots, moving post to post. Each session is tailored to the age and skill level of the goalie.

Coach Derek and I worked along side each other at Franklin High School helping the schools goalies develop into confident goalies in the crease. Derek is patient and professional and does a great job at boosting goalies confidence and makes sure each athlete is performing at their highest level. He has helped many goalie pursue college ball dreams and will continue to do so for your athlete as well.
