A Love for Lacrosse

Lacrosse has been a large part of Coach Caiazza’s life. He has more than 10 years of experience as a head college lacrosse coach. Additionally, he served as a director of the Long Island Metropolitan US Lacrosse Foundation and is the CEO/Founder of Team Hills Select Lacrosse Team. Coach Caiazza is also the proud parent of three college lacrosse players.

Coach Caiazza has been serving lacrosse players from youth through college levels for more than 38 years. He has the unique advantage of experiencing the college recruitment process from all perspectives — as a college recruiter, as a high school coach, and most importantly, as a parent.

As a result, he sees a great void and a need for direction among families. Navigating children through the ever-changing college recruiting process and club lacrosse world is highly complex. Families need to make sense of the volume of information presented to them. A sound, grounded educational approach will best serve the athlete. In respect to the "Creators" of the game of lacrosse and their value & love of the game we owe this to the future lacrosse athlete!   To follow this path or destiny respects the athlete and game!

Accomplishments at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)

Coach Caiazza served on the NCAA championship committee along with the All-American Selection Committee. He is the proud author of the NCAA Legislation, creating and guaranteeing the NCAA Division II Championship format. Coach Caiazza was also a 1999 NCAA Division II finalist for Coach of the Year.
