We're happy to announce that Cole will be returning to the program again this year to coach our 7/8 teams. Cole has had tremendous success with the teams and the players have really responded to his coaching and mentorship!
Coach Parker comes from his hometown of Syracuse, NY, where he played scholastic lacrosse at Nottingham High School. The Nottingham Lacrosse program is most widely known as the alma mater of Matt Abbott, former Syracuse All-American and current MLL and Team USA player.
Coach Parker went on to play collegiately at Herkimer Community College, home of the 9-time NJCAA National Champion Generals lacrosse team. While at Herkimer, Coach Parker played under Coach Rich Dommer, a former All-American and NCAA Champion himself.
After being recruited by several schools while at Herkimer CC, Coach Parker chose to attend and play lacrosse at NCAA Division III Medaille College in Buffalo, NY. Throughout his career, Coach Parker was asked to play nearly every position, resulting in a comprehensive knowledge of the game in every facet. Coach Parker recently decided to leave a management position in Syracuse to pursue his true passion of teaching and coaching the game he loves.
