I have coached at STFX for 4 years and have enjoyed sharing my lacrosse experience with young players. 

Lacrosse is a dynamic game and although it requires dedication and hard work, I want young players to embrace their own creativity and strengths on the field.

As I work with the goaltenders in box lacrosse, I will offer guidance in positioning, reading shooters, anticipation, and ball handling. 

Having graduated with a degree in psychology, I focused my senior experiment on the effects of a mental imagery workshop on goal accuracy in lacrosse players. 

I hope to encourage our young athletes to strengthen their mental preparedness as much as any other aspect of their game.”
