"Coach Brett has been a great coach for my son. My son picked up lacrosse less than a year ago and needed some help with proper techniques in passing, shooting, stick work and dodging. My son improved in all of these areas after the lessons and some practice.

Brett has a positive and supportive approach that really connected with my son and helped build his passion for the game."
