Becoming a Youth Lacrosse Coach

1

Coaches are some of the most influential role models in childrens' lives today.

With the explosive growth of the sport of lacrosse around the country, the need for knowledgeable, experienced coaches is greater than ever before.  We are looking for head and assistant coaches at each age group.

Playing experience is not a prerequisite to coaching youth lacrosse.  USA Lacrosse, MYL, and our program offer many training opportunities to teach the game.  Teams practice twice a week and have games on Sundays.

If you are interested, please reach out for more information.  All coaches require a CORI check per Massachusetts law.
