Seahawks Family Testimonials
I was first exposed to lacrosse in Sarasota in Middle School. I had the pleasure of being coached by Jamie (Coach Jamie Carver) and Clayton (Coach Clayton Wight) at a young age. After my 1st season of lacrosse with the Seahawks Coaches, I fell in love with the sport. I knew I wanted to play the sport at the highest level, and consoled with Jamie on what would be the best steps for me to take.
I’ve enjoyed contributing to the growth of our sport and making a positive impact on the Seahawks players. As the father of a player, and a coach, it has been gratifying and rewarding to teach the skills associated with lacrosse in the supportive environment cultivated by the Seahawks..
