Athlete FIRST Approach
Our Coaches care about every athlete. It is not only about making our best players better, it’s
creating a TEAM. It’s about setting goals for every player, and helping the athlete reach their goals.
It doesn’t matter if the player is on the top of the roster or the bottom, each athlete is coached,
contributes and plays to their potential. We coach our athletes up!
Our coaches lead by example. They don’t stand on the sidelines quietly – our coaches coach
and engage the athlete. Our teams leave it on the field.
DEWLAX coaches are fully trained and the majority US Lacrosse Certified, to develop and guide
our athletes. Lead by Positive Coaching Alliance Trainer Dwayne Wilkins (also fmr US Lacrosse Trainer)
and Fay Lonsinger (HS & Youth Coaching Veteran); our coaches are required to develop their coaching skills
by internal and external training. Your child will never be in the hands of untrained
or unseasoned coaches.
We believe in Double Goal Coach – Winning & Life Lessons go hand in hand. Our coaches talk about
Leadership, Effort, Intensity and Hard Work as the tent poles of success – these qualities are the
lifeblood and soul of our program. We believe in well rounded athletes – life is more than sports.
We get back to you when we say. We answer every e-mail. Our coaches will always communicate.
At no time do we want our athletes to not know where they stand. We have an open door policy so that
athletes can address any need – our coaches will get back to you within 24 hours with feedback. You will
not be left in the dark.
For our middle school teams, all tournaments are local and are during the month of June. That
allows for families to relax and vacation after July 4th! For Rising Freshmen and our HS Teams, we play
additional recruiting tournament in Pennsylvania and/or Maryland in July.
Our Schedule is efficient and effective. Each practice is designed for preparation for tournament play.
Quality tournaments are selected for competitive play. There is no down time. Our season doesn’t drag
on and hinder summer family fun.
DEWLAX coaches know college coaches. We understand the roadmap to college and can help advise
you on how to get there. Our relationships with college coaches, from recruiting seminars to
recommendation letters to the right tournaments will help you in your quest for college lacrosse.
