MLXA COACH BIOS

We teach more than a game! Our priority is to put each player in a place where they will be challenged—physically, mentally, emotionally. We will make as competitive teams as possible. We want the game of lacrosse to be accessible to everyone. We spend time evaluating players and building the most suitable teams for their development, as both a player and an individual.

Eric coaches the MLXA 2022 team. He also is the head coach at Grand Rapids Catholic Central.
