"I am very excited to see what Coach Tom Raleigh is building in Charleston! Bringing the box game to this up and coming area is going to give these players more chances, while giving them the tools to be better skilled players. Having coached Tom and coached against him, I know the sky is the limit for whatever he is involved in. I am looking forward to seeing the continued growth of lacrosse in Charleston."
Head Coach Mars Hill University
3x NCAA Div 2 National Champion Coach
Coach Raleigh has guided us through the entire NCAA recruitment process. Not only has Coach Raleigh explained the process, he has answered every question along the way: from which college lacrosse programs are a good fit for our son, Noah, to which forms we need to submit. He does not stop there! Coach Raleigh has spoken to Noah before and during each college visit, offering insight, inspiration and encouragement. We look forward to all the amazing opportunities that await our son with tremendous gratitude to Coach Raleigh!

"I believe that box lacrosse gives young people many more opportunities to excel in our game. If I had my choice, I would have every player under the age of twelve play box lacrosse exclusively or at least a majority of the time. The number of touches of the ball and the ability to develop better stick skills in a game of box lacrosse, far surpasses what happens to young people on a 110 x 60 yard field. Learning how to pass and catch in traffic, understanding how to shoot, and developing a sense of physicality are all positive traits developed by the box game."
