Furthermore, since the coached have all played for the club, they know exactly what it means to be part of this special program.
For example, Coach Rob Forster, who runs the program and was a Phillylacrosse.com Honorable Mention Coach of the Year at three-time Friends Schools League champion Academy of the New Church, has transformed his HS program into a league champion and state contender.
