VGYL Welcomes New Coaching & Curriculum Consultant!

The Victor Girls Youth Lacrosse Board has been working diligently in 2017 to continue to enhance our year-round programming and coaching expertise for all grade levels.  We have internally discussed and looked at other sports programs to assess how to better prepare our volunteer coaches to ultimately help our youth players learn the game of lacrosse consistently and correctly from kindergarten through sixth grade.  The Board has determined that creating a new position, Coaching & Curriculum Consultant, will help us achieve that goal.  The Consultant will be responsible for creating an integrated kindergarten through sixth grade curriculum that will include practice plans and drill aids for our volunteer coaches.  The new curriculum will be rolled out this spring by the Consultant holding training sessions as well as helping volunteer coaches on the field as needed.

The VGYL Board is proud to appoint Kerrie Brown to the position of Coaching & Curriculum Consultant, effective immediately.  Kerrie, an Irondequoit native, holds a B.A. in Physical Education from St. Andrews University (Division II) where she also played lacrosse and was named an IWLCA and US Lacrosse All-American.  Kerrie has been an assistant lacrosse coach at several Colleges and Universities since graduating college including: Pfeiffer University (Division II), Brockport College (Division III) and St. John Fisher College (Division III).  Kerrie has also been very involved locally, assisting with the East Rochester High School girls lacrosse program, coaching for various local lacrosse Club teams during the last five years, and developing and running several girls lacrosse youth camps.    

The common theme the Board heard when speaking with Kerrie’s references (including our very own Victor Girls Varsity Lacrosse Coach), was her non-stop energy, her ability to coach to all skill levels, her organization, her passion to coach the girls and connect with them, and her love of the game.  Kerrie will be at several winter sessions for all grade levels rolling out various coaching techniques to our coaching staff and players.  The Board feels very fortunate to have someone with Kerrie’s background and expertise to help our program, coaches and players grow. 

Please join us in welcoming her to the Victor Girl’s Lacrosse community!
