More About Coach Mark

I have been a Youth Coach for the last 4 years (2 in MD & 2 in PA). I am currently coaching the 2027 MESA club lacrosse team. (formerly Olde English prior to merger) I am also the Varsity Head Coach at Souderton High School.

I've had the pleasure of playing for some of the best minds in the game. At the Gilman School (MD) I was mentored by John Tucker, a 4 time Team USA Midfielder and All-American at Johns Hopkins. He mentored me to become a high school All- American and ultimately voted as Player of the Year in the State of Maryland. In College I had the pleasure of playing for John's former coach at JHU, Don Zimmerman, where he won three national championships. Don recently retired from UMBC where he led the Retrievers to ten NCAA playoff berths over 24 years and in 2017 was elected to the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. What I learned from these men have forever changed me as a player and person and I hope to pass their wisdom along as much as I can.

My mentors are distinct because of how they taught the game: Fundamental precision. If you do something, do it right and in the proper form, over and over again. (muscle memory) Doing so will lead to doing it right on game day and when under pressure. The X's and O's are important, but if the fundamental aspects such as footwork, stick skills and body and field positioning are not right the margin for error grows tremendously. This is how I was trained, and this is how I will train you or your son.

Coach Mark is awesome! He knows how to train the young lacrosse player. His training is exactly what my son needs. After one hour session, we can see the improvement immediately. I would highly recommend coach Mark and will book more sessions with him.

Coach Cornes is great! I learned a ton and want to go back to work with him every week! - AP

Mark is wonderful.

My son has never played LaCrosse, but wants to go out for the school team because hiS friends play. By the end of an hour session, the growth for a newbie was remarkable.

I would highly recommend Mark. His credentials are impeccable. He is personable, knowledgeable and, most importantly, can teach.

I am signing up for more lessons because of what I have written above and because my son David likes him and is thrilled at what he learned.
