His club lacrosse work includes 8 years with True Lacrosse MN where he has held multiple director roles and coached their AA State teams.

When asked why he coaches Joe puts it simply: “I like to change lives. Pete Carrol puts it great saying, “When you believe in someone more than they believe in themselves, you become more than a coach or a mentor, you become a life changer.” That is what I strive to do as a coach, to give kids the tools to succeed not only as lacrosse players but in all facets of life.”
When asked why Maple Grove, Joe says: “The community in Maple Grove is primed for this. It is a perfect place to build a legacy, with rich history just waiting to be added to. I look forward to making a lasting impact and building something very special.”
