More About Coach Joe

I am the Head Varsity Lacrosse Coach at The Ursuline School. As a former male DI player now coaching girls lacrosse, I have the unique perspective of knowing and understanding and loving both games.

My life long love affair with lacrosse benefits from my 100+ years of cumulative coaching experiences from a diverse background of coaching at all levels- Recreational, Travel & Tournament. In addition to lacrosse, I have coached baseball, basketball and softball and use those experiences to help players with similar experiences learn the game of lacrosse. My overriding goal is to make training fun, engaging and educational while at the same time, highly beneficial! Kids learn better when they're having fun!!!

My belief is that "Coach" is LESS about who you are and MORE about what you do. The greatest Coaches in the history of sports understood that in order for there to be team success, you had to have individual successes as well. So they motivated and inspired athletes to work hard and take personal accountability for their own development and performance. "You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit"

In addition to being a former DI player and the parent of former players who played at the DI level as well, I am a Certified Interscholastic Coach (CIC) through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), a US Lacrosse Certified Boys & Girls Coach, and the Owner & Operator of Redemption Lacrosse, a private lacrosse training program committed to developing players of all ages, genders and skill sets. The combination of those experiences provide me with a unique understanding of what parents hope to gain when they hire a private coach to help their child learn.

Quality training starts with the simple question "how good do YOU want to be?" My unique Coaching technique goes well beyond X&O’s to teach players the habits and behaviors that it takes to be successful; not only in today’s highly competitive world of lacrosse, but in academics and life as well. At each session, I bring a passion, energy & love of the game that encourages & motivates young athletes to make the time investment required to achieve their goals.
Over my coaching career, by continuously attending coaching clinics and seminars I have expanded my depth and breath of coaching young athletes by studying the latest trends in lacrosse across many different philosophy's, techniques & drills in order to ensure that my teachings are current and relevant.

As an athlete, I was a two sport athlete in football and lacrosse at renowned Yorktown High School helping the team to 2 State Championship appearances, including Yorktown's very first NYSPHSAA Championship earning various athletic honors along the way. I went on to play DI lacrosse at nationally ranked Towson University. I have successfully Coached my own children who have gone on to earn several athletic accomplishments including multiple All-Section Honors, Big 10 Player of the Week and Inside Lacrosse DI National Player of the Week.

By using a combination of drills and coaching techniques, our session will cover complete lacrosse development including agility, stick skills and the correct mental approach needed to succeed in today’s highly competitive athletic environment.

Each session is uniquely structured to the needs and goals of the individual athlete which allows us to maximize the time investment that you make.

The drills for each position are isolated in order to achieve maximum benefit and to create the muscle memory needed to accomplish your goals.

Session Examples:

Shooting:
• Point and shoot to isolate proper release point
• Swat the fly to isolate core rotation
• Ladder agility drills to isolate proper foot movement
• Break the bucket drill- ladder drills with cradling into a split dodge and/or inside role that ties the previous drills together

Goalie:
• Wall Ball Eye-Hand Coordination
• Agility ladder to isolate proper Goalie footwork
• 4 & 5 Hole Saves to isolate proper movement to the ball
• Hand-Ball that tie-together
• Arc Play
• Playing the ball behind
• Rope visualization drill
• Shooting

Lacrosse Skill Development:
• Wall Ball Eye-Hand Coordination
• Catching Drill
• Bust the Bucket throwing drill
• Cradling
• Scooping
• Ladder Agility with cradling, scooping and or shooting/throwing included

Client Reviews

Joe was amazing with my 13 year old! My son is a first time player and wanted to see if he had any skills and if lacrosse would be a sport he enjoys....and it turns out that Joe helped him figure out that it’s yes to both of those!!! He can not wait to meet with Joe again and keep practicing! Thanks for everything Joe:)

Coach Joe has worked with my 11-year-old daughter for 7 sessions so far. After the first session, I saw an increase in her power and accuracy due to the modifications he made in the way she was holding her stick. Coach Joe continues to build on previous lessons and my daughter has grown tremendously in a short period of time. He is kind in his delivery of constructive feedback about her performance so she never feels criticized. Instead, she feels supported and is appreciative of the honest advice because she knows it is making a difference in her style. Coach Joe is quick to reply to messages, he is very punctual and genuinely cares about helping my daughter to improve. I highly recommend him.

What a terrific coach! It's clear that Joe has a ton of coaching experience and is just great with kids. He worked with my novice middle-schooler and within the first session, taught him lax skills to build upon, gave him a structured approach to practicing on hisown, and truly engaged and inspired him. He seems to have a nack for understanding different kids personalities - works on their level and truly develops a rapport. My son loved his first session, has a newfound confidence and excitement for the sport and we are already planning for several more sessions. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.

My 10 year old son had a great session with Coach Joe! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a coach. He really knows the game and all its nuances. He made it fun for my son!.

Great attitude and keeps it fun. Highly recommended.

Joe is a fabulous coach!!! He takes time with my daughter to really help improve her skills and her confidence. He has been such a tremendous help to my daughter. Her game has improved significantly and she is much more confident on the field!!! He is also extremely patient and clearly loves lacrosse so passionate about the game!!!

Joe is a fantastic coach. My son is young (only 7 years old) and new to lacrosse. We came to Joe to because my son is joining a lacrosse team and wants to catch up to some of the other kids that started playing at age 5. Coaching a young child is not easy because their attention span can be very short. Joe has created a set of coaching techniques that keep him engaged and interested while learning the game. My son loves his sessions with Joe and is progressing quickly. Obviously as a former D1 player, Joe is a great lacrosse player but more importantly for his students he really knows how to coach skills and techniques, which is an entirely different skill-set. I highly recommend Joe to anyone that is looking to learn or improve in lacrosse.

Excellent teacher and the follow-up was sincerely appreciated.

We will train with him again for sure.

My son is just starting out with Joe. We couldn’t be happier. Our son is learning so much and Joe has been able to zero in on areas for our son needs to improve upon very quickly. We are excited to continue working with Joe.

Coach Joe was great!! My son ( a teenager/never played before) was not opened to the idea of needing a training session. My son hardly spoke and gave minimal effort for the first few mins. However, Coach Joe made him feel comfortable enough to let loose and soak up everything he was learning. He told my son, "You have to learn how to crawl before you can walk". As soon as we got home, my son wanted to practice some more. He had a great experience. Coach Joe is knowledgeable, engaging, motivating, skillful, and friendly. Since our first session, my son's confidence level went up and we didn't feel rushed at all during the session. We look forward to many more practices. Thanks Joe

I would like to thank coach joe for his professionalism and knowledge. Coach joe instilled confidence and knowledge in my son. I would highly recommend him for a beginner goalie all the way through high school varsity. Thanks again Coach see you soon Patrick H.

Coach Joe is an excellent coach. He has a great knowledge base of the sport. He has helped my son improve and feel more comfortable in his skills. As a busy parent I also appreciate that he is flexible and understanding when trying to schedule a session. I highly recommend. Thanks Joe.

My 15 year old daughter has had one training session with coach joe and has already jumped to another level in both skills and confidence. Joe is engaging, personable, motivating and knowledgeable and has a great natural repor with kids. Before her session with coach joe, she was playing jv goalie. The week after her first session she was moved up to varsity. She’s really looking forward to more goalie training with joe!

Great start. Strong fundamental learning. Made my son really enjoy the experience.

Amazing! My son has never played lacrosse before but showed an interest. Joe's demeanor and expertise in his first coaching session has my son really excited to play the sport. He learned a lot and we have already signed up for more sessions with Coach Joe!

My daughter had her first training session with Coach Joe and loved it. We are booking more sessions and highly recommend Coach Joe.

Thanks to Coach Joe my daughter became a lacrosse goalie and is now playing on a top notch club team! Coach Joe continues to challenge my daughter - he is helpful for all level of play. Thanks Coach Joe!

Coach Joe is just what my son needed! After just one lesson my son was very excited to start improving his game both physically and mentally. Coach Joe exposed issues that my son did not know existed in his game and was amazed at how well his accuracy and speed increased by making a few adjustments. Coach Joe truly cares about his students as he does not look at his watch to see how much time is left.. Thank you Joe

Coming from a school that didn't have goalie coaches my son struggled with correcting bad habits during the season that only a skilled set of eyes could see. Joe was recommended to us and from day 1 my son has benefitted from his passionate and energetic approach. He has done a great job of tweaking his play without trying to "change" the style of play he has relied on to this point.

Coach Joe is fun to work with, he knows girls lacrosse inside out, he is amazing at coaching for any level, and he gives good drills to practice on throughout the week to improve. He is very specific on items you need to improve on, and also knows what types of things you can get to improve. I would work with him more often. 10/10 would recommend!!

Coach Joe is a great lacrosse coach. He is in general a good guy. He shared his years of experience through great stories and anecdotes. Also, I get the sense that he cares about the players' personal development on and off the field. He gives lots of good tips that I want my son to hear but is more inclined to listen to coming from a respected coach like Joe Fitzgerald. We are planning several more individual sessions. Absolutely, I recommend Coach Joe.

Joe, filled in for us on very short notice and did a great job coaching both girls and boys. he was prompt and professional and we got great feedback from our clients.

Coach Joe is an excellent coach. He took his time to explain everything and is very knowledgeable in what he teaches. Coach Joe made my son feel very comfortable during the training. We can wait to our next lesson.

My son had a great first session with Coach Joe. After years of different coaches, he feels like Coach Joe really zeroed in on his weak points and gave him exactly the instruction he needed. He is looking forward to more sessions and focused instruction from Coach Joe to help him bring his game to the next level!

A great first meeting. We learned a lot and know a number of things to focus on until we meet again. Coach Joe seemed very focused and inspiring. We're looking forward to our next lesson!

Coach Joe is an amazing coach. He is very instructive and engaging. My son has a great experience working with him.

Fantastic and helpful very early on. Already scheduling more sessions!

Coach Joe was terrific! My son is excited to go back and get into a training schedule.
Thanks coach Joe!

Coach Joe was Amazing! In just one session my son's confidence went up dramatically, abd he was doing things that were previously difficult for him! Coach Joe's friendly and positive personality make him an absolute pleasure to work with!!

Coach Joe was amazing at our multi-age goalie clinic. He was organized, enthusiastic, and knowledgable. I highly recommend him for goalie training.

Wonderful coach who is extremely passionate about the sport. Knowledgeable and motivating and gave my daughter the confidence she needed to start a sport in her freshman year of high school. Would recommend to anyone!

Joe, I can't thank you enough for all of your hard work with Miranda. Her confidence both on and off the field has grown unbelievably since she started coming to you. Your commitment and dedication to her development is greatly appreciated.
