From Press release
Sweetlax Lacrosse is thrilled to announce that Professional lacrosse player Randy Staats will be taking on a primary role with the Sweetlax family. Recently named Sweetlax Director of Box Lacrosse, Staats is a prime addition to the Sweetlax coaching staff. A longtime presence in the Lacrosse world and MLL, Staats will bring great insight with a focus on improving player development and lax IQ.
The Sweetlax Box program began 3 years ago and continually evolves from year to year. Players will gain value in having Randy assist them in developing their fullest capabilities indoors, introducing them to a much faster game which brings players improved stick skills, reaction time as well as increase their speed of play and understanding of the game.
“Having Randy head up Box lacrosse will truly set apart our program,” said Sweetlax Club Director Tommy Costanza. “Staats has made himself a name in the box lacrosse world being awarded 2016 Rookie of the Year and most recently named in the Top 10 of players by Inside Lacrosse.”
Staats grew up surrounded by lacrosse in Ontario, Canada on Six Nations. At the age of 3 he had a stick in his hand learning the game from his dad, various family members and working in his backyard. Highly regarded as one of the top playmakers in DI lacrosse at Syracuse University, Staats also played on the Iroquois Nationals team in the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships.
Staats has been not only a role model for younger players but a Coach that will teach them what it means to play with passion. He will focus his time on camps and clinics to guide players on how to take their game to the next level and the importance of keeping their stick with them at all times. “I’m excited to help players get better in a creative way by using techniques that helped me get to the level I have been able to compete at throughout my career,” said Staats.
Sweetlax Box Lacrosse will begin this January for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Practices will run through the months of January and February at Your Sports Depot located in Macedon. To register for Sweetlax Box Lacrosse please visit: http://www.sweetlaxlacrosse.com/upstate/box-lacrosse/
