Good morning!!

Please see the following message from Coach Holmes


Parents of PR 12A Team,

I am excited and proud to announce I will be taking over the 12A head coaching position for 2023.  When I was asked by our coaching staff it only took me a few seconds to say Yes! 
First I wanted to congratulate the parents and boys who earned a spot on the Pine Richland 12-A Team for 2023!   Without committing your time, effort, and resources into your son's development you would not be here.   Lacrosse is not a sport where you walk onto the field and pick it up right away.   This 12A Team was years in the making and 1000's of hours of training across our team to get to this point.    
My goals coaching our boys is to develop skills across everyone on our team.  My focus is to help build confidence, accountability, discipline, and respect for ourselves and teammates on and off the field.   Last year I had the opportunity to head coach the 12B team and at the time I was hesitant to step in.  I jumped in head first and it was the best decision I made in 2022.  Although not everything went perfectly to plan we had an extremely successful season.   
Most important of all is that we as a team, group, organization work together an a respectful manner.  As parents and coaches we are role models for our boys.   I expect my players to model good behavior.  I have extremely high expectations when it comes to Attitude and Effort.  I will be deciding who our primary captains will be after we play our first couple games.  I am already assessing who will be in our starting lineup with input from our coaches.   As I have been instructed by the board we will continue to build a competitive team and program.  As the coach of the A team I will be looking for players showing a positive attitude, consistent improvement,  and perfect or near perfect practice attendance.   Playing time will not be equal however everyone on the A Roster will get game time.  If anyone has grandparents or family in from out of town for a game please email Jenna or myself prior to the game. 
John Reba did an outstanding job last year and I have big shoes to fill.  I care about our boys and this team and I take my head coaching position very serious. I am confident in the coaches we have on staff this year and as a group we will succeed together! 
Lineup for 12A Coaching Staff- 
Myself - Head Coach 
Tony Narcissi - Assistant to the head coach - Tony has an incredible knowledge of the game of Lacrosse and he is highly committed to our PR Lax organization.   
Chad Cribbs - Assistant to the head coach - Chad will be running our Defense and has specific knowledge of how we can improve our defense this year.  Chad has a very strong understanding of the game. 
Bob Senz - Assistant Coach with excellent knowledge of the game and has a very positive attitude which will rub off on the team.  Bob brings experience from playing college Lacrosse and knows the game well.  Bob will be our Midfield Coach 
Ryan Colombo - Coached several years for PR Lax - Ryan has specific knowledge on the Goalie position and will be our Goalie Coach and backup Defense coach. 
John Reba - Although we know John will be helping run 14U we also have John helping when he is available.   Not much introduction needed for John.   He is the backbone of our PR youth Lax program and is an integral part of our organization.  
Marc Voit - Marc has been in organized sports for over 25 years ranging from competitive youth to college sports.  If we are light on coaches Marc is willing to step up and help if needed. 
Marc specializes in speed and agility which will be implemented into our longer outdoor practices. 
Jenn Watenpool - Team Mom - most of the communication will come from Jenn and she will need everyone to sign up to help Volunteer.  Keep your eye out for emails from Jenn. 
As you can see we have a lot of Parents who are committed to seeing our boys succeed and this year will be a major growth year for our boys. I will do my personal best to take criticism as it comes and with that improve my coaching with the help of John Reba and the group.   
Please review the rules and guidelines sent by PR Lax a few weeks ago.  I only have one request for our parents.  If you are upset about something or you feel something needs to be corrected by myself or any other unpaid volunteer please wait a minimum of 24 hours before reaching out. 
Thanks for taking the time and I look forward to a successful season together!
