We are very proud to announce the appointment two new head coaches to lead the East Coast charge against the rest of the country in the 2018 Senior Nationals. Please join us in welcoming the years of dedication, expertise and passion that these two coaches are volunteering to bring to our teams.

Meet your coaches:
 

Lynton Arscott, Head Coach OF THE EAST COAST ALL STARS WOMEN

Why I love lacrosse:

“There’s only so much one can say about why I love lacrosse, it’s fast, it’s exciting, it’s skillful and it’s hard hitting. But the main reason I love lacrosse is the friendships that comes along with it and watching the players you have coached developed & grow their game."

Why I wanted to coach this team:

"Opportunity to work with people that I have never worked with before. Coming together in a short amount of time. Having a common goal and acting out that common goal."

About me:

"I am married with 2 children, my son plays State League Men’s for East Torrens Payneham Lacrosse Club, my daughter is involved with Burnside Lacrosse Club where she played and now coaches & umpires. I am a Sales Manager for Fullhammer a sporting apparel company in Adelaide, South Australia."

 

Paul Young, HEad Coach of the east coast all stars men

Why I love lacrosse:

 "My lacrosse career began as a 10 year old back in 1979 playing in the Under 12’s at Woodville Lacrosse Club. During my junior years I was selected to represent South Australia at National Championships. I played my first senior game with the Woodville B-grade team at the age of 14. I continued to play with Woodville until 2013 and played 200 plus senior games and scored over 300 goals for the Warriors.

During my time at Woodville I was lucky enough to play in a number of Premiership sides. The highlight of those being in 2011 with the Division 2 team, undefeated season and shut out of the opposition in the grand final. Over the years I had some fantastic coaches including Australian Head and Assistant coaches. I won many individual awards during my senior career including the SA Lacrosse Association Best & Fairest for Division 2 in 2013."

Why I wanted to coach this team:

 "Over the years I have coached junior teams and was a playing Assistant Coach for Woodville Div. 2 team from 2011-13. This year I have been mentoring online some of the members of the Ugandan squad that will play at the World Championship in Israel.

 In 2015 I had a stint in Sydney and was selected for NSW and played in the East Coast cup. In 2017 I played with Bayswater Rocks in the Hong Kong Lacrosse Open and the Hawaii Lacrosse Tournament.

 I decided to apply for the coaching position as lacrosse is my passion and I must be involved in the game. Lacrosse has given me so much over the years, the opportunity to travel and friends across the planet, and now it’s time to give back, I can’t keep playing forever! I have skills and experience that I wish to share with the next generation of players and be able to help grow the game. I would love to one day see a club competition in Sydney. I want to help East Coast improve and one day be a title contender for the National Championship."

About me:

 "Away from lacrosse I am a Site Supervisor for a Fire Sprinkler company. I also have the privilege of having a wonderful partner and 3 children. All of whom are extremely proud and supportive of what I have achieved in lacrosse on and off the field."
