Main guys stayed and rebranded it into East Coast Elite.
Prices are very fair and they train over winter more than everyone else with trainers. We giving it a shot.

Lets be straight here. You did not get the truth.
5 Ducks coaches left and are part of the new team R. U. S. H.
Jeffares, Faulkner, Coleman, McIntee, Spruyt
All experienced coaches

Dynamic Lacrosse then formed East Coast Elite lacrosse
That has 5 experienced coaches from Ducks
Rooney, Meehan, Doller, Rimmer, Biondilio
Then 3 recently graduated college kids from Ducks. Graduated 2017 and 2018.
Andrews, Sirico, Gonzalez

4 other coaches are not with either organization

As for 2022 with East Coast Elite lacrosse, they only list fir coaching
Meehan as the head coach
Pickel - a young kid still in college

Thats not much of a coaching staff. Basically only a head coach.
And your paying $2500. Not cheap for limited staff.

You need to research more.

I know McIntee, jeffares and spruet- they coach but with what results?
And I'm not talking about winning some local 8 year old tournament
I have No idea who the other guys are

As for East Coast Elite
Rooney is heck of a player and was NYIT assistant last year
Messina coached at Farmingdale and now varsity assistant at sayville
Dollar has been coaching varsity at sayville very successfully for years , they won a couple Championships and are right there every year
Biondilo or Joe B is varsity assistant at one of the schemes
Rimmer is excellent coach and been coaching since he left dowling years ago
Meehan is excellent coach and new head coach at bayport
The young Pickel is at stonybrook and makes for a great assistant
Sirico graduated from Loyola were he had great career, he may be out 2 years now

They also list 2 more varsity head coaches from Nassau county for their 2025 team

I've been around lax long enough to spot a coach and a successful one.
If you want to speak on coaching staffs
