I formed TCG as a way to teach, promote and grow the game of lacrosse.  I will be directing and coaching most or the sessions for all age groups.

COLIN FLEMING

Coach Fleming is a Bryn Mawr native who grew up playing Ashbee since 2nd grade before going on to star at St. Joseph's Prep.  He continued a stellar playing career at the University of Massachusetts, a high-level Division I program, where he was a 4-year starter at midfield.  Following graduation, Colin was drafted by the Boston Cannons of the MLL.  As a good a player as he is, he's a better person.  He does a great job coaching kids and providing a strong role model.

Coach Kauffman grew up in Havertown, playing in the Haverford Youth Lacrosse system and then at Haverford HS.  He went on to become a 4-year starter and 2-year all-conference defenseman and long-stick midfielder at Widener University.  Tim has continued to play post-collegiately for various local teams and tournaments.

Tim’s coaching career extends from high school varsity at Garnet Valley and Haverford HS to middle school and younger.  He is currently the head coach at Bala Cynwyd Middle School, where he also teaches.  Tim was the head coach of the Ashbee 7th/8th grade A1 travel team last year, doing a phenomenal job.

 

DANNY DeCRESCENZO

Coach D is the Asst. Coach for Harriton's Varsity Team.  To call him an assistant is actually pretty inaccurate.  I see him as mentor in more than a few ways.  He was an assistant at Harriton for two years before I arrived. He's been playing and coaching lacrosse in the area for quite a while, including:

  • Coach D started the St Joseph's Prep Lacrosse Team in 1996 and served as the Head Coach from 1996-2000.  He was named Catholic League Co-Coach of the Year in 1997.
  • Has coached the Main Line Lacrosse Club, the Keystone Lacrosse Club, various Ashbee teams, and Varsity at Woodlynde School.
  • Member of the Lower Merion HS Hall of Fame with the rest of his undefeated, State Champion 1967 team.
  • Co-Captain and 1st Team All-State (unanimous selection) of 1968 team
  • Midfielder for Denison University (including 1969 League Championship team)
  • Coach D is an all-around great person that I look up to, along with the countless others who have been coached by him.
 

ROLLIE D'ORTONE

Coach D'Ortone enters his second year as the Head Coach at Lower Merion HS.  Previously, he has served as a head and assistant coach at Neumann University, an assistant coach at Ursinus College and a head coach at Upper Darby HS, where he is currently an Asst. Principal.

Coach D'Ortone grew up playing at Springfield-Delco and then went on to play at Drexel University.  Coach D'Ortone has been honored by the Springfield Lacrosse Program multiple times, including: 1996 Legend of the Game (for contributing to the growth and development of lacrosse), the 1985 Most Improved Award and the 1986 Stu Brown Award (for displaying outstanding effort and dedication).
