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 and Alfie Jacques, the stick maker. They are an unbelievable wealth of knowledge about lacrosse and are some of the worlds 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.
