The Duke's Lacrosse Club @           COACHING STAFF

The Duke's COACHING STAFF is in one word, INCREDIBLE.  As a Combined Group, they have OVER 300 years of COACHING EXPERIENCE and that Depth of COACHING TALENT is only GROWING as Duke's Alums who have Matriculated through the Duke's Programs are Returning to Teach and Coach.  Returning Alums Offer a Unique Perspective on WHO WE ARE. They bring back the Lessons of their College Experience and Combine it with their Learned Duke's Experience.  This Allows them to Integrate that Higher Level of College Competition and Experience with their Duke's Experience. That in turn Provides a Balance and a Continuing Foundation to Mold Players and Perpetuate the Rich History and Tradition of their Duke's Experience. 

Please Enjoy Meeting the Duke's COACHING STAFF
