  • Coaching Expertise: Offense

  • What I most enjoy most about coaching lacrosse is …

    • I really enjoy coaching and developing lacrosse players skills and seeing how much they have improved from day 1. It’s gratifying to see a young player improve every day while really enjoying the game.

  • BBL classes differ from our rivals’ classes because …

    • It’s an exclusive and unique way of teaching lacrosse that develops the fundamentals that are a necessity to being successful at the high school and college level.

 

HIGH SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY

​The Building Blocks Elite travel program is regarded as one of the most competitive travel clubs in the country. Based on two strong principles, our teams continue to flourish. The first is our participation in the most competitive tournaments possible. We play the toughest teams so that our players are always pushed to be at the top of their game. Our high school players are routinely invited to attend the top recruiting events which help maximize college exposure.

 

The second principle is player development. We offer high level training at a level that no other travel club can offer. BBL initially started as year round training academy that offered skill instruction for some of the areas finest lacrosse players. Many of these players now compete on our youth, middle school or high school level travel teams. Last fall and spring our youth travel players were evaluated on their stick skills/Game IQ and athleticism. This gave each player a clear understanding on where they were and what they needed to improve upon. By focusing on individual development, we in turn saw our teams make tremendous progress.

RECRUITING

All Building Blocks Elite Travel players have the opportunity to take advantage of some of the best college recruiting support in the game. We provide recruiting support for EVERY player with the goal being to help get them into a school that they might not be able to be accepted into without lacrosse. College coaches now seek out our players since BBL has established a reputation as a club whose players have a high level of training and game sense. Our goal is not to place a player at a school because of its name, but rather to find a place where the player will succeed academically, socially and on the lacrosse field.

We frequently host age appropriate recruiting meetings by team for players and their parents. During the meeting we review timelines and how we can assist you with this process as well as what is expected of parents and players.
