As we face the new reality of social distancing, Trilogy Lacrosse is finding new ways to continue serving our lacrosse community.

"Whether I am teaching someone new to the sport or the next All-American, I care about their personal development. I want them to walk away with a greater mental appreciation for the game and the physical awareness to execute new skills. I also want them to understand that you must have passion and work hard in order to succeed, regardless of the task in front of them."
Widely regarded as one of the smartest players in the history of lacrosse, Ryan was one of the most dominant field generals in the sport. His uncanny understanding of the game and ability to elevate the play of his teammates enabled his teams to win championships at every level of play. He graduated from Princeton University with a BA in Psychology in 2004 and now dedicates his professional life to passing along the wisdom he has accrued to the next generation of players.

"I play lacrosse because I love it—the speed, the intensity, the teamwork, the sense of fulfillment and satisfaction that comes when success is achieved over and through adversity. At Trilogy Lacrosse, we approach the teaching and coaching of lacrosse with the same passion and commitment to excellence that we bring to our play. Nowhere else can you find a community of lacrosse players and coaches so dedicated to the singular values of the game."
During his career Matt was among the most elite class of lacrosse players in the world. At his peak he was widely considered the best midfielder in the game. His unique combination of athleticism, versatility, and intelligence set him apart as a dynamic playmaker and offensive force. A champion at every level of the game, Matt set professional records in All Star appearances and games played, while compiling one of the most impressive statistical careers for a midfielder ever. His vast knowledge and passion for the game of lacrosse distinguish him as a Trilogy instructor. His energy is contagious and quickly picked up by his players. When not coaching lacrosse, Matt can be found playing pick-up basketball in high school gyms across America. He earned a BA in English from Princeton University and an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa.

"I am very fortunate to have found the game of lacrosse and even luckier to have had such great coaches and teammates. Some of the best moments of my life have happened either on a lacrosse field or because of the sport.
The game of lacrosse has given me a lot in life, so I am excited about the opportunity to join an organization focused on giving back to the sport and teaching the next generation of players the right way to play it. All of the coaches I had when I was growing up instilled in me a love and respect for the game that I hope to pass down to every young player I work with at Trilogy."
Kevin didn't pick up a lacrosse stick until the 8th grade and hasn't put it down since. He was a two sport athlete in high school playing football and lacrosse. One great team followed another, and Kevin's lacrosse season ended in the championship game for seven years straight. His championship record was 5-2, culminating with captaining the 2009 Division III National Championship team at SUNY Cortland. He graduated cum laude from SUNY Cortland in 2009 with a bachelor's in Sport Management. He made the Deans List 5 of his 8 semesters.
After college, Kevin worked in the events industry planning charity fundraisers for professional athletes, as well as the on-site sponsor activation for a PGA golf tournament. Before joining Trilogy, he was planning events for a company in the optical industry. Kevin has been coaching at camps and clinics for over 10 years. He has been a volunteer coach for Westfield High School since 2016 and was the head coach for a 6th grade travel team in the area.
Kevin lives in Westfield, NJ with his wife Emma, son Jack and dog Bailey.

“I am excited to work for Trilogy Lacrosse because it provides me with the opportunity to share my passion for the game with the youth and give back to a community that has shaped me into who I am today. Lacrosse has set the foundation for my desire to succeed, while teaching me valuable life lessons through discipline and hard work. It has provided me with countless opportunities to challenge myself, develop relationships, and travel to new places. I am looking forward to experiencing a new sense of excitement and accomplishment through the success of the next generation of the sport. With lacrosse constantly evolving, Trilogy has the platform to have a major impact on the development of young athletes on and off the field that I cannot wait to be a part of.”

This is what families had to say about the first 3 weeks of programming:
“Thank you very much for the opportunity to participate in the virtual backyard clinic today. Although he has had a stick in his hands most days, this provided focus and he worked harder during that hour than he has in the past month. Plus, he had a smile on his face afterwards! We appreciate your leadership, encouragement of our son and time. Hope there are more sessions to come!”
“Virtual Coaching is here to stay. The experience as pro players and leadership of the Trilogy Lacrosse’s coaching staff is unparalleled in the industry. It makes them a no-brainer choice for lacrosse training and education.”
“It felt like a one-on-one session with coach.”
“It was great to connect with Coach Belisle and the other players. Not being able to complete the season of lacrosse was a bummer. Knowing that Trilogy is working to make lacrosse accessible is really great and gives me something to look forward to.”
If you have to cancel, for any reason at least 48 hours prior to the start of the clinic, we will issue you a 100% credit of all clinic fees paid (cancellations must be in writing and received by email 48 hours before an event begins to qualify. No-shows will not receive credit). Your credit is redeemable at any Trilogy Lacrosse event, valid for one year, and is transferable to a family member. Cash refunds are not available.
You will be notified 30 minutes prior to the clinic if there are any changes due to inclement weather. We understand that some folks are in different parts of the country and the weather may differ for all of our participants.
If the instructors encounter inclement weather and cannot run the clinic, we will postpone the session until later in the week when there is good weather in the forecast. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, you will be credited for the registration fees and it can be transferred to a new session. We will be running these regularly for the foreseeable future.
If there is inclement weather in your area that prevents your son from participating outside, please email us at email@example.com to let us know and we will credit you for the registration fees, which can be transferred to a new session.
