Coaches & Staff
Feel free to interact with any of the coaches & staff. One of the biggest assets of the Beach Dogs Lacrosse Programs are the coaches.
Our friends from the Iroquois Program are here including Cam Bomberry, Tyler Hill and Alex Cook and some others. They are an unbelievable wealth of knowledge about lacrosse and are some of the world's best lacrosse players. As much as they play it is also their responsibility and in their culture to share what they know and pass it down.
Lastly, at Beach Dogs we have one rule, RESPECT.
Please remind your campers that respect for their coaches, their teammates, themselves, and the game is expected at all times. Any disrespect is considered a disruption and any player can be asked to leave if breaking this rule.
See you on Monday!
