Featured Coach: Girls Training Director Alyssa Guido
I have been coaching with the 91 program for six years now! I have coached both the youth and high school levels and enjoy the different teaching dynamics at each age group.
I have played lacrosse for the past 15 years. I graduated from Rocky Point HS where I was a 4-year Varsity player and played collegiately at Stony Brook University. After college I played 1 year professionally with the UWLX on the Philadelphia Force.
How old were you when you started playing lacrosse and what made you pick up a stick?
I was 8 years-old when I first started playing. My Uncle introduced me to lacrosse. He was one of the all-time best goalies at Yale.
What is your favorite lacrosse memory?
My favorite lacrosse memory is beating Northwester in the 2nd round of the NCAAs my senior year at Stony Brook. That was the first time in our program's history that we were going to the Elite 8!
Who was your favorite player to watch growing up?
My favorite player was Katrina Dowd. She was a tenacious player that could do it all.
What was your first stick?
My first stick was a the classic DeBeir starter stick!
