John Lintz has stepped into the role of academy director previously held by program founder and mentor Jamey Bowen.
A box lacrosse specialist ever-expanding his field lacrosse knowledge, John has enjoyed a playing career that began with the South Edmonton Warriors (provincial gold in 2003 and 2004 and a silver medal at Founders Cup in 2004).
John also competed for two seasons with the Coquitlam Adanacs of the BCJLL (BC Finals in 2006).
After being drafted to both NLL and WLA in the third and second round respectively, he began his senior lacrosse career playing for the WLA’s Langley Thunder (two Western Lacrosse Championships, attended two Mann Cups, two time WLA 2nd Team All-Star, two-time Hard Hat Award recipient with Langley).
During summers spent at home in Edmonton, John has played for the RMLL’s St. Albert Miners (three provincial championships, two undefeated seasons in Alberta, a Presidents Cup bronze medal and a Presidents Cup Championship in 2016).
In the National Lacrosse League, John has been a member of both the Calgary Roughnecks and Saskatchewan/Edmonton Rush (Including four visits to the Champions Cup finals and three championships, was the Fans Choice recipient in 2015).
John has coaching experience with the St. Albert Miners, South Edmonton Warriors, Apex Field Lacrosse Club, Destroyer Lacrosse, West Edmonton Blues, and dozens of camps along the way.
Apart from lacrosse, John has enjoyed a lengthy relationship with the sports of basketball and volleyball, stepping behind the bench for both the Louis St. Laurent and St. Francis Xavier in a variety of capacities.
“My goal with Xavier Lacrosse is to continue the legacy left to me and to provide a family environment so that student-athletes can feel supported as they pursue their academic and athletic dreams, no matter how big or small.”
