NOTE: High school players brand new to lacrosse may be best served by attending 2 or 3 sessions of Level 1 training and then switching to Level 2 when they are ready. We find that high school players pick up the basic fundamentals quicker then younger players and therefore may not need the entire Level 1 clinic.

         "Coach Pete,Mitchell, Benny, and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the private lacrosse lessons you provided to Benny this summer before the summer league began.  You were technically proficient, enthusiastic, thorough, punctual, responsible, kind, and very patient.  Your energy and passion for the game certainly rubbed off on Benny.  He learned so much through your instruction and after taking the lessons, and playing the Summer League, never wants to put his lacrosse stick down!!  You are a model instructor and coach and we hope that Benny has the opportunity to learn more from you as he continues to enjoy the sport in the coming season and in the years ahead.  Again, thank you for your spirit, your sportsmanship, and your help!" 
                                                                      Warm regards,
                                                                      Judi, Mitchell, and Benny (7th grader)

         "Coach Pete and the Davie lacrosse league is the reason my son now eats, drinks and sleeps lacrosse!  My son loves the sport and we have met many great parents and coaches that have not only helped him become a better player but person as well...many thanks."
                                                                       Madeleine (mom of 7th grader)
          "Coach Pete, I want to thank you for the terrific private lessons you gave my son Gabriel. We signed up because Gabriel thought he might be interested in playing Lacrosse but knew absolutely nothing about the game. With your help, it was thrilling to watch how quickly he learned the basics, as well as how his excitement about the game grew after each lesson. By the time he played in the summer league it was apparent how much the lessons had helped. Gabriel now loves the game of Lacrosse and is looking forward to playing every chance he gets. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion for the sport with my son."
                                                                        Ellen (mom of 7th grader)

         "One on one, private instruction was just what our son needed to take it to the next level.  He was given instruction on the finer points of the game and the small things that he individually needed to work on to get better.  If your son or daughter loves lacrosse and is motivated to become his or her best, we would highly recommend private instruction.  It has made noticeable improvements to our son's level of play."
                                                                       Jim (dad of 7th grader)

       "My wife and I are so grateful to have Coach Pete work with our nine year old twin boys, both on the Barracudas lacrosse team, as well as in private lessons.  His time is in great demand and it is evident to us why.  The dynamics of twins can be challenging and Coach Pete has an innate ability to recognize the individual differences in his athletes and hand-tailor his guidance to achieve maximum effectiveness.  This approach encouraged our boys to believe in themselves and to do more than they thought they could.  He always makes it a practice to catch his athletes doing things right and also uses their mistakes as valuable constructive teaching opportunities.   His passion for lacrosse is infectious and thanks to Coach Pete, the twins have "caught the bug" like their older sisters.  Thank you, Coach Pete!"
                                                     Jason and Holly (parents of 4th graders)

        "I just wanted to thank you for the one-on-one private lessons you provided to my son, Sean. My son has not stopped talking about how much he has learned. He can't wait to apply his new skills he has acquired from the lessons in the new season.  I highly recommend your private lessons to any player serious enough about taking their game to the next level"
                                                                        Jim (dad of 7th grader)
