More About Coach Greg

I am entering my 8th year as a lacrosse coach. I've coached college women (Duke University club), high school men (Millbrook), high school women (Wake Forest-Rolesville), 5th/6th grade boys (Rival Lacrosse, Ravenscroft) and 7th/8th grade boys (Red Devil, Apex). Individually, I've trained athletes as young as 7 years old and well into adult years. Additionally, I have several years of experience coaching different age groups across various sports.

I played lacrosse at the Defenseman and Midfield positions throughout high school, earning team captain honors, before moving on to compete at the collegiate level at East Carolina University. Prior to lacrosse my background was soccer and football, so I understand the transition into lacrosse and can help athletes who are trying to switch over.

My coaching plan varies based on skill level and is specialized for each client. For players with limited experience, the first session will be spent on the fundamentals. This helps me gauge where the client is and how much more time needs to be spent on the basics. Sessions thereafter will carry skills from previous sessions while incorporating new skills and focusing on in-game scenarios. The more experienced players can jump right into this part. Most importantly, lacrosse is fun! My clients will be given the skills to be able to compete successfully, and will have a blast doing so!

Coach Greg is very knowledgeable and professional. My son enjoys waking up on a Saturday and going to his training session. I recommend him to anyone starting out

Coach Greg is the best! After just one training we could see improvement in my daughter's skill level. After a few she is so much better. She has decided to stop travel soccer and take up travel lacrosse all due to Coach Greg!

I can see improvement! Coach Greg is funny and kind. I’ve gotten tips that are actually helpful.

Hey Coach Greg,

Thank you for a great first session. Nolan enjoyed the drills and feels more prepared to contribute to his team. We are looking forward to growing his game further, thanks to you.

My son really enjoys Coach Greg's lessons and feels that he learned a lot from him in a short time. Greg helped him learn fundamentals of shooting, passing, cradling, catching, etc. Coach Greg knows good places to play, is good about organizing lessons, and, most importantly, shares his experience and positive attitude about the sport! Recommend 110%!

Coach Greg is working with my very novice teens and they were making great progress after just one session. Even practicing little tricks at home with their sticks. Greg is fun, attentive, reliable, and meets you where you are! Highly recommend!

Coach Greg is awesome! My daughter looks forward to her sessions and it is obvious he loves the game of lacrosse. He was a great find!!

I highly recommend Coach Greg. He's great with kids, and he knows his lacrosse!

Communication is excellent. My son says Coach Greg really pays attention to where he needs to focus and gives him a full hour of drills, coaching and one on one play. From a parent standpoint, Coach Greg is mindful of our questions and hopes for the session as well as family schedules. Would not hesitate to reccomend based on my son's response and value for the session cost.

My daughter has had 3 sessions so far with coach Greg and LOVES working with him! He’s been patient teaching a rookie the basics but also pushes her. We are looking forward to many more sessions with him!

Coach Greg has been working with my daughter and her best friend for a few lessons. He is kind and patient and very accommodating with times and locations. Would highly recommend!

Coach Greg had a very welcoming personality. He gave encouraging feedback, but also provided correction and coaching to ensure skills and form were appropriate. Looking forward to future sessions.

My daughter has been training under Coach Greg. Coach Greg has excellent skills for teaching lacrosse to young beginners. He has progressed through catching and passing, running with the ball cradled, catching and passing on the run, and scoring. My daughter has partnered with one of his other female students of the same age to gain better interactive skills for the game. She will clearly be ready to try out for the JV team at her high school next month.

What an outstanding coach! My 10-year old son was struggling to learn field positioning as well as throwing and catching while running. Thanks to Coach Greg, he made tremendous strides in less than three weeks and feels way more confident in his skills. Coach Greg made practice fun, so my son didn't really feel like he was training.

I highly recommend him!

Greg has been excellent helping my daughter get started for the very first time in lacrosse. She has really enjoyed her sessions, is learning a lot and appreciates his kind and patient approach. He has been great with communication and I can see that he is knowledgable and advanced in skills but able to coach well to all levels. We look forward to more sessions and would definitely recommend him!

Greg is a great coach!

My daughter enjoyed the trial so much! Greg was very professional and knowledgeable. We’re super excited about the future!

Thank you!

Greg has been great for my high school freshman who’s fairly new to the sport. My son was interested in trying out for the high school team so was looking for some supplemental coaching to help bridge the gap amongst his peers. Greg has been great with offering drills and skill work as well as being a resource for questions my son has. Definitely recommended him.

Coach Greg was definitely someone I will use again.He was able to adjust to my 10 year old's speed and walk him through the basics of long stick. Drills were put in place to help with his skills and he was fun and patient throughout the practice. I look forward to our next session! I highly recommend Coach Greg!!! Thank you!

Greg is a great coach. My 9 year old son loves lacrosse but has only been playing for a few months. His teammates have been playing much longer and since I've never played, I hired Greg to help him close the gap. So far so good. He's been cradling, catching, and tossing better. But more importantly, his confidence has increased. He still has a ways to go, but I'm confident that he can get there with Greg as his coach.

Coach Greg did an excellent job with my son. He ran some drills, gave him skills to work on and provided positive feedback and motivation!

Excellent session. Greg had my 7 year old scooping, cradling, and passing within one hour.
