About Us

Our Team

Our Team consists of the area's top coaches, made up of current/former high school and college coaches as well as college players to lead, develop and mentor our players. All of our coaches are background checked, paid and are constantly developed throughout the year.

Hammers Lacrosse Coaches have helped develop hundreds of student-athletes each year and have helped send over 100 student-athletes to the next level since 2017. Our coaches are all hand-picked and undergo an intensive vetting process to ensure that they coach the way that we believe will push our athletes to become the best versions of themselves both on and off the field.

Hammers Lacrosse Coaching:

  • All of our coaches played the game and are current/former college players, high school coaches or college coaches.
  • All of our coaches are paid and are constantly developed throughout the year to stay up to date with the newest trends, strategies and concepts.
  • All of our coaches are passionate about player development - we know that that an emphasis on fundamentals, positional and IQ paired with a fun and competitive environment will accelerate the growth and passion of all our players.
