This year the Parents Club has partnered with the Centercourt Sports Academy Bubble in Mount Olive to help put together a Team Training program for WMC lacrosse that will meet once a week on Tuesdays after school starting January 9th. The Program coordinator is Steve Manitta former high school coach of the year in NJ at Chatham HS, former DI and DII head coach.
Coach Manitta has offered to hold a “sneak peek” training session on Thursday, November 16th from 7-8:30 pm at the MTO Indoor facility so potentially interested players can meet him, the staff and get in some free training.
