More About Coach Nicholas

Coaching and training athletes of all levels, I hold extensive experience in all fields related to sports. Having spent the past 4 years as an assistant director at a sports camp, serving the athletic and general needs of children ages 6-18, I genuinely love sports and the transcendent experiences that they can provide. My greatest field of expertise is lacrosse but have both played and trained athletes of all major sports (football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, golf...)

I most recently held the position of assistant lacrosse coach at Dickinson College, a premier division 3 lacrosse institution. There, I trained players to become more fit, improved lacrosse players, and young men. I have a firm understanding of what it takes to achieve desired goals and improve the livelihood of players. I have coached all-americans, adolescents, driven and sluggish players, 15 year veterans and first time gamers. I love the meeting new athletes and discovering how I can assist their growth.

I come as a soon to be CPT and CPR/AED certified coach. My ultimate goal in life is to improve the lives of others. Assisting young athletes in their pursuit of success is the best avenue with which I can pursue that goal. I strongly look forward to being in touch with you or your acquaintance!

Referring to my lacrosse career, I served as team captain of both my high school (Boys' Latin) and college team (Dickinson College). My contributions to the teams went well beyond blatant accolades. The true measure of success was what I learned from my experiences and gained as a driven person.

Despite my personal views toward success, I understand that results do matter and offer some of my specific accomplishments. At the high school level, I switch positions half way through my career and still managed to be an all-MIAA selection. I chose my college independent of athletic recruitment, walked on to the #2 team in the nation and immediately contributed. Elected as captain by my peers, honored with the leadership and commitment award, and recognized by the Centennial Conference as a sportsman of the year; my lacrosse experience was rich in honors but more so in meaning.

My experiences as an athlete have taught me how to be an educated person, grow beyond expectations and create meaningful relationships throughout. Sports engender rich lives, and that is what I hope to help others experience.

The session schedule will always be tailored to the specific needs of that athlete at that time. Engaging, fun exercises are always guaranteed, as is the safety of each athlete. We will usually begin with different warm-up activities that activate the athlete's physical and mental motors. Following the warm-up and discussion of that day's goals, we will begin the skill building exercises that could take shape in many ways. The completed exercises (not monotonous drills) will always have purpose and are meant to be fun. Whether it is crafting an athlete's mental capacity of the game, or becoming more physically capable through unique activities, each session will always promote growth. A wrap-up activity will always end the sessions. This will allow the athlete and coach to reflect on the days session and also provide the athlete with exercises that he or she can complete independently.

Client Reviews

His impact continues to be positive and he instills energy into everything he is involved with. In my twenty-five years of coaching, I have been blessed to work with many fine young people. Nick was among the top of this group in terms of his attitude and demeanor. He was a gritty and determined competitor who is goal oriented and driven.
