Client Reviews

My son is new to the sport, and though hesitant to new experiences, he seemed to like Coach Tom & asked for more lessons. Very easy to work with, scheduling & location good for us. Thanks!

Great session between my 12 y.o. daughter and Coach Tom yesterday. Worked on fundamentals. The one on one setting and increased repetitions showed significant improvement in a short time. My daughter really enjoyed the work with Coach Tom and is ready for more. Highly rated for both boys AND girls.

Coach Tom is really experienced and helped immensely.

Coach Tom is fantastic! My son had never played lacrosse and he helped tremendously. Extremely knowledgeable, great coach and patient!! Would highly recommend to anyone!!

Coach L was amazing with my 3 boys. They are new to Lax so they needed to review the basics. Coach L quickly evaluated their level and abilities and ran a session that was perfectly tailored to their needs, not too advanced but not too basic. They learned a ton and had "so much fun" and they are excited for the next session.

We feel extremely fortunate to have had Tom coach our 7-year old son. Our son moved up to league play with older kids and we wanted to ensure he continued to improve his fundamentals and stay interested as he competes with older and bigger boys. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. After the 1st session with Tom, our son described it as AWESOME and FUN. Without me having to ask, he tells me what he is learning and how much better he is getting with every session. Tom was amazing from the start in making a personal connection with our son. Tom's skill as a coach clearly equals his very impressive skills and lifetime accomplishments as a player.

My daughter is only on her second training with Coach Lion and she has already progressed greatly. Coach Lion has created a comfortable environment and consistently reaches out after every practice with nuggets to help elevate her game. I highly recommend all those looking for a coach, to consider Coach Lion.

Coach Tom is awesome! His enthusiasm for the sport is contagious. Definitely would recommend him.

Gave a really good introduction into lacrosse and was a lot of fun!

Tom is a fantastic lacrosse coach and immediately zeroed in on our son's strengths and shortfalls. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for beginner to advanced private coaching in the Loudon Co. area.

Coach Tom did an amazing job figuring out flaws and knew ways to fix every one of them. Easy to talk to and a great learning experience. Thank you Coach :)

We were very happy with our first session with Coach Tom. He was very flexible when we had to change the location (which I had selected) and even rescheduled his next appointment when we ended up starting late. My son was very happy with the things Coach Tom worked on with him. We're planning to do a second session in a few days and would definitely recommend him.

We booked a training session with Tom, through an ad on Google, and he did an excellent job training our son. Not only did he help him make the A Team in Lacrosse but he showed Justin some fine tuning techniques that were instrumental in his training. I really appreciate how convenient Tom made the experience, and our son was really impressed with what he learned. The end result was our son made the TEAM. We highly recommend him.

Thanks again, Coach Tom!

Great intro for a first-time player. My son is jazzed to start playing and will look forward to another lesson.

Coach Tom is doing a great job with my son, and under-9 player who just started lacrosse last year. The work on fundamentals -- like stance, footwork, and cradling -- is already paying off, as is the training in the specific position my son wants to play. My son likes it a lot, and is really looking forward to the additional sessions between now and Christmas.

Coach Tom really connected with my son. He really helped improve his game!

Coach Tom is great. After just one session I already feel my game getting much better. I would recommend Coach Tom to anybody who loves lacrosse
