Mike has been great.

Son had a lot of fun.

My son loved Coach Michael. My son has been playing lacrosse for awhile now but said that he learned some new techniques that no one has ever shown him before. The coach was so excited to help my son and worked really well with him. We bought 3 sessions with the coach but after the first session we will be extending the amount of lessons. We highly recommend Coach Mike.

Coach Michael was great with my son. Energetic, positive, and fun! My son enjoyed his session and plans to do a few more in the spring.

Coach Michael was as passionate and knowledgeable about his sport as I've seen to date. He had my son up and rolling in no time. His ability to convey concepts is unprecedented. He worked my son hard physically while imparting valuable knowledge at the same time. I look forward to working with him in the future.

Great session with coach Mike. Working my son hard, and teaching him valuable skills. Additionally, he loves these one-on-one sessions!

Great session with Coach Mike ! My two boys really enjoyed the session with him on lacrosse basics and he is terrific with young kids

We highly recommend!! My daughter, 15, was trying to improve her overall game and Coach Michael was incredible. He pushed her just enough, and had so many tips and tricks to help her. If you are looking for a great coach we definitely recommend!!!

Coach Michael is a great coach! He prepared my son for the upcoming lax season by teaching correct technique, and familiarizing him with drills and strategy. We highly recommend him and will continue to use him for supplemental training.

Mike is a professional who clearly likes to coach. My son really enjoys his sessions with him, and we will be signing up for more!
