Tampa Bay Lightning Head Coach Jon Cooper Visits His Hofstra Lacrosse Roots!

  Note:  I came across this via email from NHL.Com, sent the link by Tony Collette.  Thanks to Tony for sharing this! The video shows Coach Cooper giving a talk to the Hofstra Lacrosse team last week, probably while the Lightning were at Nassau Coliseum to play the NY Islanders.  For those not familiar with the geography or the back story, Hofstra University is basically across the street from the Nassau Coliseum in Nassau County (I grew up about 10 minutes away) and Jon Cooper was a pretty darn good starting middie for Hofstra before getting into coaching professional hockey.  He put up 99 points in his career and played for then Hofstra HC John Danowski.   The link to the video at NHL.Com is HERE

  Author's Note:  Readers of my Stoneman article will remember that Nicholas was the boyfriend of Taravella Lacrosse Head Coach Joe Chiarella's daughter.  For those who are not familiar with the connection this is it. On Sunday Feb 3rd at 11:00 am the Nicholas Dworet Memorial Fund will be hosting an event at the Coral Springs Aquatic Center 12441 Royal Palm Blvd, Coral Springs, FL  33065 dedicating a bench and tree that were placed there in remembrance of Nicholas Dworet. Nick grew up in Coral Springs and starting swimming when he was seven years old. He spent many days at the pool and swimming was a big part of his life. Coral Springs Aquatic Center is also the pool that the Douglas swim/water polo team practiced so the bench and tree, along with a plaque will be something that swi

  Author's Note:  Michael Ward is a columnist with LaxRecords.com and is also a lacrosse parent who decided to share the good and bad of his experiences.  I appeared on the latest LaxRecords.com podcast with Michael and I can tell you that if you listened to his segment you'll know he truly understands what he is talking about.  I strongly suggest that ANY current lacrosse parent will get a lot out of what Michael wrote!   I’m often asked about travel teams. What high school program do you think is better for my son or what camps have the most impact. A word of caution … when you ask for my opinion, buckle up, you’re going to get it.
