What they say about Coach Silcott
"Brian Silcott is one of the most knowledgeable and innovative minds in lacrosse. He has a natural ability to teach and develop players. His style of lacrosse is focused on getting players lots of touches and playing the game fast. Brian is a leader on and off the field. I could not ask for a better coach to be around a program. He honors the game and focuses on keeping it fun and fast paced during practices, while still demanding hard work and excellence. Brian is one of the game's all-time best and strongly recommend getting him in front of your players, as a leader of character and as a lacrosse coach. "
-Justin Bokmeyer: Captain US Army, Former Captain Army West Point Lacrosse
"Coach Silcott has elevated my game immensely in a very short period of time. He has the rare ability to teach and demonstrate the little details that can make good players great, something no coach I have played for has been able to do. Specifically, he breaks down the How and Why of various dodging and shooting techniques for players to gain a full understanding of wasting no motions, and doing everything on the field with intention."
