Cam Bomberry - IROQUOIS NATIONAL LACROSSE
Accomplishments stretch what seem to be miles long. Beginning play when he was just three years old, Cam worked his way through the Six Nation’s minor league box lacrosse program. He began playing for St. Catherine’s Junior A team when he was 15, but finished off his Junior career back with the Six Nations Arrows, where his team won the Minto Cup in 1992. Cam also played NCAA lacrosse with Nazareth College from 1990 to 1994 in Rochester, New York, where he also helped his team claim an NCAA championship title in 1992.
On top of his minor league and college achievements, Cam was able to play professionally for eight seasons in the NLL with the Buffalo Bandits, the Rochester Knighthawks, and the New Jersey Storm. On the OLA circuit, he has participated in three Mann Cup titles with Six Nations Chiefs. His experience also stretches onto a number of naional teams. He was able to play for the U-19 Canadian National team in 1988, and was a four-time member of Iroquois’ National team. He finished his playing career summer of 2006 at the World’s tournament in London with Iroquois.
With such talent with a stick and a ball, Cam started sharing his knowledge of the game as a coach first at the Junior A level. He also helped start the men’s field team, Six Nations Warriors, as a player/coach. On top of coaching for Edge, he is still coaching the Mohawk Stars Senior B team, as well as serving as the head coach for the Iroquois Bantam team that will be headed to the Canadian Nationals in August of 2007.
Cam was first approached by freshman head coach Serge Bianchin, during this past season of Winter Lacrosse. He thought the Edge program was an interesting way to develop lacrosse players, and joined the coaching staff. The way Edge groomed student- athletes through the process of growing the sport was what especially caught his attention.
As a goal with working with Edge, Cam hopes to help the young student-athletes with their player development and their overall experience of the academic opportunity offered. He hopes to guide his players through a few championships, and build good, solid young individuals.
Pat began his seventh season as head men's lacrosse coach at Salve Regina University in 2009-10. The 2009 The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC) Coach of the Year, Cooney came to Newport with a history of helping young collegiate lacrosse programs build a strong foundation, a trend that has continued at SRU. After winning just 19 games during its first nine years of existence, the Seahawk men's lacrosse program has tallied 35 wins over the last four seasons - including 10 wins in 2009, when the Seahawks advanced to TCCC Semifinals for the third-consecutive season.
Since arriving at Salve Regina, Cooney has worked tirelessly to recruit outstanding student-athletes. "These young men have spearheaded the Seahawks success in all areas at the University," said Cooney. "The success of any collegiate team is dependent upon the responsible pursuit of excellence both on and off the field."
As a coach, Cooney incorporates an aggressive, up-tempo style of play with the Seahawks. By recruiting student-athletes of superior character, he is able to foster the creativity and growth of each individual through athletics. Coach Cooney has put an emphasis on academic success with the team members earning an average GPA of 2.9. By academically and athletically retaining student-athletes, the team has grown in spirit, experience, and skill. In 2009, goalkeeper Brian Walker (3.64 GPA, accounting) received TCCC Senior Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award.
With the continued success of the program, the roster has grown to more than 30 outstanding student-athletes. In addition to playing conference games in TCCC against the likes of nationally-ranked Endicott College and Western New England College, Salve Regina University consistently schedules non-conference games against top programs throughout the region.
"Our goal is to win the cup - The Commonwealth Coast Conference championship. We prepare to win by working hard with purpose: competing to win one game at a time, one practice at a time," said Cooney.
Cooney gained notice in 1996 when he became the youngest head coach (23 years old) in the country, taking over the program at his alma mater, Roger Williams University. He spent four years as the head coach, building the foundation of a strong program and posting three straight winning seasons from 1997-99. In 2000, he went to Elmira College serving as Assistant Coach and Admissions Counselor. At Elmira, Cooney helped a talented Soaring Eagles ballclub win a share of the Empire 8 Conference title. He then joined the coaching staff at Bryant College from 2001-03, serving as Assistant Coach and Compliance Coordinator for the Bulldogs. Cooney helped both colleges achieve their highest-ever national ranking in their respective divisions.
