More About Coach Lance

I love the game of lacrosse. It was first introduced to me back in 2002 as a new club sport at my high school. I was immediately intrigued and couldn't pass up the opportunity to test it out. Ever since, I've played in high school, college, and men's league teams. I have also coached the last several years and really enjoy it!

My Coaching Experience:

-Head Coach / Assistant Coach for Utah High School Team
-Program Director for High School and Youth Lacrosse Club
-Head Coach for Utah Youth Team (Both Indoor and Outdoor)
-Guest Coach for Utah Youth Competitive Team
-And of Course...Private Coaching

My passion to teach others America's first and fastest growing sport is ever increasing. If you want to be able to compete, I'll help you gain the skills and techniques necessary to be successful in your athletic growth - and have fun doing it. Before committing, feel free to ask me questions to discuss your goals and expectations so I can make sure you get the best experience possible.

I began my lacrosse career in high school and was selected to be part of the Utah High School All-Star team my senior year. I played collegiate lacrosse with Utah State University in Division 1 and 2 of the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference. I have competed in the Northern Utah and Utah Lacrosse Association Men's Leagues. I'm also a multi-sport athlete who has excelled in both lacrosse and football.

A few of my lacrosse achievements include:

-Utah High School All-Star Team
-Utah High School 3rd Team All-State
-Northern Utah Lacrosse Men's League Champion (Undefeated)

A few of my football achievements include:

-Utah High School State Champion
-Utah High School 2nd Team All-Region
-Utah High School Varsity Letter Award Winner
-Utah High School All-Valley Team Honorable Mention from the Herald Journal

I customize my sessions based on the individual needs of each athlete, but here is a short list of skills you can learn by training with me:

-Stick stringing techniques of mesh, sidewall, and shooting strings
-Ability to throw and catch effectively
-Fast scooping and handling of ground balls
-Cradling, dodging, and maneuvering
-Shooting drills on goal and face-off techniques
-Defensive positioning
-Strength and conditioning training
-Effective concept of ball movement and positioning one's self for play-making

Let me know if there are certain skills and techniques you would like to train on specifically, or if you have any special requests. I am flexible.

Client Reviews

Without a doubt the MOST beneficial private coaching experience we've had. Lance was suburb with both of my boys (12 and 15). It is obvious that he is both skilled in lacrosse as well as coaching. My boys loved working with him and we were blown away by the very specific feedback he sent over after the session to help them continue to maximize improvement when working on their own. HIGHLY recommend for anyone serious about improving their LAX game.

My son had his first session with Lance and it was awesome! Lance took the time to speak to both of us to determine what his goals and priorities were. After his first session, I saw immediate improvement in my son's technique. Lance is honest, patient, talented and encouraging. He has treated us with respect and communicates wonderfully. I have no doubt my son's confidence will soar while continuing sessions with Lance. Lance has the skill set to teach every skill level. The only regret I have is not starting sooner! I definitely recommend Lance, don't hesitate to contact him!

Lance is great with my 3 boys

Coach Lance was great! I was a little nervous to find someone outside of our comfort zone, I am so glad we did.
Lance is very patient and kind, but does not let the little things slip by him. My daughter felt great after one session and we plan on booking more. The difference in her play is already improving. I very highly recommend Lance and I am excited for him to work with my daughter more. He responds quickly to e-mails and answers all questions and concerns promptly.

Coach Lance has been great and my son really enjoys working with him, he is very knowledgeable in the sport and is upfront about his skills assessment and improvements that need to be made.

Coach Lance was great to work with! His flexibility helped accommodate my teen's schedule. He was thorough and meticulous in fine tuning technique! His feedback was detailed with instructions to follow through the week. My son's offhand game improved dramatically. He even suggested specific national lacrosse games to watch to further educate my player. I highly recommend him.

Lance has been great with our son! He is kind and patient. He has also taught him new skills in a very short period of time! Highly recommend him!!

Coach Lance took my sons skills to the next level, tremendous progress!
My son was one of the top Lacrosse players in his league before working with Lance. After every session he shared all the new things he was learning and his confidence is at all time high. He is excited to try all the new skills he has acquired in his upcoming games. Coach Lance did a great job of building on his current skills.
If you are looking for a coach that will inspire your athlete and push them to new levels then Coach Lance is the right choice!

Lance is patient and positive with the kids. He gives great tips and I can already see improvement in just a couple lessons.

We are so excited to be working with coach Lance! He has already begun to help my son grow confidence, improve his fundamentals and grow his love for the sport! Thank you Coach!

My son wrote this earlier this year: "Coach Lance is amazing! After one session i knew i was going to have a lot of fun. He's patient, fun, and always is able to tell what I need to work on. He is an expert on what he teaches and wont let you down."
That was my son's review. When my son started with Lance, he wasn't really an athlete. He has a problem known as POTS, which includes a failure to regulate heart rate and blood pressure. The doctor recommended exercise to enlarge his weak heart. My son has worked with Lance two to three times a week for 9 months. Lance has turned him into an athlete and taught him to play lacrosse defense. When we went back to the doctor this week, he was surprised to see that my son's POTS symptoms were mostly gone. But not only is his cardiovascular health drastically different, my son has become a good defender. Whatever your goals are for yourself or your child, Lance can get you there.

Coach Lance has been a terrific coach for Hailee. He has worked with our schedule, (good for me) and great with Hailee teaching her skills. She feels like she walks away after every coaching session a better player. Thanks Lance! Jeana

Coach Lance is an amazing coach. Both of our sons have absolutely loved working with him and look forward to their next sessions with him. He knows how to push but still keep them motivated. We are so excited to see how ready they are now because of their one on one time with him.

*Update- I couldn't have been any happier with the Coach Lance. My kids learned so much in such a short time and the change in their confidence was unmistakable. He did so much more than just 'coach' our boys. We will definitely be going back to keep them learning more!

We have always been a football family so I was a little surprised when my son said he wanted to play lacrosse! Not only is my son new to the sport, but our family is new to the game as well. We had about a month before the season started so I knew I had to get some training for my son. I found CoachUp and decided to hire Coach Lance. I am so glad I did because I was very impressed with him! He knew my son had ZERO experience and was a little nervous, but Coach Lance was patient and encouraging. He focused on the fundamental skills and did structured but fun drills. He also used examples from football that my son could relate to. Whether you're a beginner or an advance player, I HIGHLY recommend Coach Lance! He has a ton of knowledge and is very passionate and enthusiastic about the sport. My son learned a lot in a short amount of time and had fun training with him. My son is progressing nicely and thanks to Coach Lance, he won't be lost or lack confidence when the season starts!

Coach Lance defiantly is a trainer/coach to have train your son or daughter. He quickly can see what the strengths and weakness are to improve you child's game. In just a few hours my son improved his confidence and his catching. He is very nice and patient and spends every minute of your practice time to improve your child. We could not of asked for a better trainer.

I am adding to this review now. We have had 10 sessions with Lance. I can tell you over a 100 reasons why to have this COACH teach your child. But that would be a very long review. So trust me when I say he's is worth every penny. My son comes home very tired, but strengthen in his skills. Lance really knows how to teach and improve your child. I love the fact he spends time to send out a review of what they worked on at each session (like homework) so my son remembers what they did and what to keep working on for the next session. That tells me he puts a lot into teaching lacrosse players this game. He is flexible and works with our schedule, so if you make an appointment and need to change he is so understanding and works with you. My son has really improved his skills and gained more confidence . This coach is amazing at teaching players how to play and gain confidence along the way. I have watch him trained younger players around 6 years old before my sons sessions. He is just as kind and patient with the younger beginners as he is with my 15 year old. Never yells and discourages, but always uplifts even when your child makes a mistake. He will still encourage them and show them what they did wrong in a kind way that teaches them to not give up and try again without fear. I have never and my son says never has he ever yelled or got mad. Very gentle and patient. He loves this game and wants all his players to be great. He knows his stuff and how to teach it. He knows how to help your player become better. Book him!! You will see what happens right in front of your eyes with your child. Its night from day..

Lance has been able to guide my son in improving his abilities. Lance has experience, knowledge, and love for Lacrosse.

He was great. He did a wonderful job showing and explaining everything. His follow up was also good for my grandson. Looking forward to next sessions.

Coach Lance was very personable with my son. He took the time to run him through a series of exercises to see where his strengths were and where he can improve. He is positive and encouraging and has a firm plan to improve the skills of my player. We look forward to many more sessions with him.

My son has only had 2 sessions and has already learned so much and is excited to go to his sessions.

CoachLance was amazing, very knowledgable and asks all the right questions to get to know his student and their ability. I highly recommend Coach Lance for any level lax player! Thanks for everything, and I will book him again.

Coach Lance was an outstanding coach! The thing that helped me the most at becoming a more skilled player was that he took his time showing you proper technique and skills. He repeats drills over and over to help your brain make it be become muscle memory. he helped me learn that Its not about the speed that counts, but the technique and proper form that helps you become a better player. I would recommend him to all players.

The two sessions that I've had so far, have been great!! I'm learning a lot, and becoming a more confident player.

"I love working with Coach Lance because he is really nice, and he he'll always help me when I do something wrong. He makes me a better player by making me work hard, and I have fun while working hard too."- Cash 7 years old

He is a great coach for every level. He's very good at really moving me along fast. I just started lacrosse and I can already compete with other players who have been playing for years. 5 stars

Lance coached our Freshman/Sophomore team this past spring [2015]. He was a great coach that was able to relate to the boys. He was able to identify each player's strengths and weaknesses and put them in a position to succeed on the field. He found very effective ways of teaching fundamentals of the game without repeating the same old boring routines. At game time the boys were prepared to compete. I have seen many coaches, but Lance stands out as a great one. He is qualified and gifted as a coach.
I have played lacrosse with Lance throughout high school and college. He is dedicated not only to the sport, but on helping others improve. Many times Lance would call different members together to help us improve on fundamentals of the game. Lance understands what it takes to be great at lacrosse, and he is well equipped to help others achieve their goals of improvement. Besides playing with Lance, I have worked with him in settings where we worked with kids, and he is great at connecting with them and helping them.
[My Son] Hunter [age 10] has always loved sports. As soon as he started playing lacrosse with Lance he was hooked. Lance showed Hunter the fundamentals of lacrosse in a way that made it extremely easy for Hunter to learn. Now because of the way Lance has influenced Hunter we are searching for a local league for Hunter to play in. My son very much enjoys learning from and playing with Lance.
