Coach Ted Garber On ESPN II
The Loomis Chaffee lacrosse program has an unparalleled winning and respected tradition throughout the history of New England Prep School lacrosse. Ted Garber in his fifth year as the Head Coach has now been inducted into two lacrosse Hall of Fames (University of New Hampshire and most recently, The Connecticut Lacrosse Hall of Fame.)
His lacrosse background, success and expertise are second to none. Not only is he recognized in the national and local lacrosse communities as one of the top clinicians and teachers of the game, he is also the only lacrosse coach in the history of the game who has been a successful lacrosse coach at the Professional (presently Ohio Machine), Division I collegiate, (UNH, UMass), and the secondary school level (Loomis Chaffee, Avon Old Farms). Coach Garber’s philosophy of success as a coach and mentor is predicated upon his players respecting the game, and teaching his players how to execute the basic individual and team fundamentals through game recognition concepts, while doing it through selfless teamwork. Motivating his players in a positive manner by allowing them to utilize their individual talents within the team context has been a vital component towards his players’ willingness to make personal sacrifices for the greater good of his teams’ success and that has attributed to many of his players success at the collegiate and professional levels.
Coach Garber's coaching expertise.
The coaches and players are looking forward to the challenges of the upcoming season with positive enthusiasm. And, over spring break, the team will take a five day pre-season trip to practice and play exhibition games in Clearwater, FL in preparation for the regular season, when they will face-off against outstanding New England prep school competition.
