Team 302 Info
Team 302 was developed in the winter of 2007 to provide an opportunity that was not yet possible for many players. Team 302 was formed to help expose players to college coaches so they could have the best opportunity to reach their goals of playing Lacrosse in College. Team 302's number one priority is to help you! We wanted to help the local players improve so their high school/ middle school / youth programs could benefit. We also wanted to share our many connections and resources, so our players could have a broader range of college choices, and be given the opportunity to reach their academic and athletic goals at a school that best fit their individual talent.
What sets Team 302 apart?
Coaching and teaching experience. Most importantly, we are not only coaches but teachers. Jay Motta and Keevin Galbraith have both been teaching since 2002 with degrees in Health and PE, Elementary Ed, Secondary Ed, and Keevin has a Masters Degree in Special Education. We are involved with young people throughout the year and have learned the best ways to teach and coach our players.
As a bonus, there are very few programs in the country that have the same experience and knowledge in lacrosse as our coaching staff. We have a college coach/ professional player, former D1 or D3 player, or current D1 or D3 player coaching at every position. Jay Motta, who also was a professional Lacrosse player for the Barrage (MLL), is a former assistant coach at UD and coached Delaware to the NCAA elite 8 in 2004. He also coached the face-off guys at UD and helped Alex Smith (College All-American /MLL ALL-Star/Team USA) at Delaware break multiple NCAA face-off records. Keevin Galbraith played 12 seasons of playing professional lacrosse (Philadelphia Wings and New York Titans, NLL. Philadelphia Barrage, MLL. North Shore Thunder, WLA.) Keevin also was one of the leading scorers for The US Indoor National Team in 2007. Along with playing, Keevin has been coached High school Lacrosse in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Keevin was also an assistant coach for team USA indoor and coaches the likes of Casey Powell and Paul Rabil.
How do you expose and develop players?
Our playing and coaching careers have helped us develop many friendships in the college coaching circle. We regularly communicate with many college coaches who ask about our players and their plans for college. As a part of the college coaching network, we are good references and can give recommendations that the coaches value and trust. From our recommendations, we have been able to help many of our players get recruited to play college lacrosse. We help players also get into elite camps that other coaches without the network contacts can not.
During the summer we work to develop our players' individual skills and teach advanced team concepts. This development is taught during our practices that take place on Tuesday and Thursday night in the summer. We will also be offering practice from February to May to help develop team chemistry. Our practices are every Tuesday & Thursday starting the last week of May though mid July. During practice, our players will be taken through college and pro style drills, which will help the players take their games to the next level. These practices are important to develop team chemistry for our tournaments so the players can compete at the highest level in front of perspective college coaches.
What tournaments are you playing in?
Our Rising Seniors, Rising Soph, Rising Frosh, will be playing in 3 to 4 tournaments this Fall and summer, and our Rising 3rd-8th grade teams will compete in 3 events in Summer and Fall. Out HS B team will compete in the summer only. This will help our players receive the maximum exposure to college coaches. During each tournament, the players will receive the same amount of playing time and will have equal opportunity to showcase their talents. Due to the importance of commitment and team chemistry, a player will have his playing time diminished at a tournament for poor practice attendance and attitude.
