“Extremely organized, fast paced, lots of “one on one” instruction”
“I can’t say enough about Coach Mike McGuigan and the youth lacrosse clinics that he has put together for the MOT youth lacrosse players the past few off-seasons. Coach McGuigan brings a fast paced approach in “TEACHING” the youth players in his program how to become the best that they can be. I cannot stress the word “TEACHING” enough. Coach McGuigan has brought a championship caliber high school program to the youth level, and he and his staff do an amazing job of applying it in a way that the young guys understand, and most importantly have fun. Extremely organized, fast paced, lots of “one on one” instruction, and an overall fun atmosphere are just some of the things that make Coach McGuigan’s program a success. As a parent of U11 goalie, (whom, by the way, loves that Coach McGuigan always finds time to work with him for goalie skills/drills) I am extremely happy with the program that Coach McGuigan has put together for the MOT area youth lacrosse players. His passion to grow the game is infectious, and my son and I look forward to the next session.”

“I was fueled with confidence from Coach Mike and his comprehensive training regimen, and I was determined to make the team, and I did. “
My freshman year of high school was my first year back at lacrosse after a season-ending injury. The time off really showed in my rusty skills even though I had been playing lacrosse for four years. I wasn’t that big or fast when I got to high school and compounded with my time away to recover, I barely played on the junior varsity team. Sophomore year, I changed position from a defensive player on close defense and long stick middie to a goalie. Given that the team only had one goalie, I was the designated varsity back up. I didn’t play a single minute in that year, and was not recruited.
My junior year, still the varsity backup goalie, I decided I wanted to play more. I played long stick middie again but this time for varsity, and I had my goalie gear on the sideline in case I was needed. I was better and even started some games as a LSM on the wing, but I still didn’t play any minutes in goal, and was still unrecruited.
Given my playing history, I assumed my senior year would be the last time I played organized lacrosse so I decided to play hard. The first thing I did was find a goalie coach. That’s when I met Coach Mike. He watched me play to assess my skills and my weaknesses, so he could develop personalized drills to help improve my game. We worked together twice a week, working on my reaction time, hand-eye coordination, endurance, in game decision making, passes, clearing, balance, footwork, core strength, and much more. With his help and his specifically developed skill-drills, I didn’t just serve as back up goalie. I was the starter.
We continued working together throughout the fall and winter. My senior season started and ended, in a flash. Where I thought senior year would be my last year, I ended the season as the team Defensive MVP, 1st Team All-Conference, Conference Player of the Year, 3rd Team All-State, and on the South Delaware All-Star Team, and perhaps most notable was the fact that I had offers to play at four NCAA DIII lacrosse colleges. As much as I would like to take credit for the success I had, it has to go to Coach Mike. The hours of work he put in to help me get better, in the hot and humid weather, under the summer sun, running from spot to spot across the field just to get me the shots I needed to improve.
When it came to choosing a college, I decided to give up a guaranteed chance to play and instead walked on to York College of Pennsylvania’s team, which was ranked 4th in the nation. I was fueled with confidence from Coach Mike and his comprehensive training regimen, and I was determined to make the team, and I did. Again, I would love to take credit for this accomplishment, but once again, it belongs to Coach Mike. It was his training that allowed me to be part of the best and biggest team around. I’m truly grateful for all he’s done for me.
