Boyle is very enthusiastic about the programs potential in the region.
“I’ve had the privilege of being part of the HEADstrong Foundation over the past two summers through their incredible lacrosse camp held annually in Lower Township,” said Boyle. “I feel incredibly proud to be even further involved with this organization. Our South Jersey club program will continue in the same positive direction that HEADstrong is moving and it will be built on our commitment to integrity, hard work, sportsmanship and playing the game the right way; with honor and respect, the same way that founder Nicholas Colleluori played the game.”
“It is with great pride that we introduce Chris Boyle as the General Manager for the HEADstrong Lacrosse Club of South Jersey. Chris is incredibly knowledgeable and possesses a great passion for teaching the game which he has earned him the respect of the South Jersey lacrosse community. Furthering the game and providing opportunities is of the upmost importance to Chris and that is matched by his sincere commitment to advancing the HEADstrong mission in the shore region. As a leader who has been at the helm of advancing the game in the region for more than a decade we felt it was imperative for Chris to be woven into the fabric of our organization and we are truly honored to have him involved.” Michael Colleluori, HEADstrong Vice President & Nick’s Brother
