    Mindy McCord has helped thousands of girls over the past 15 years develop their games. Now from her position as Director of Lacrosse at Jacksonville University, she has the critical role of organizing a top-notch Division I lacrosse program for both women's and men's teams. JU will be the only Division I lacrosse school featuring both men's and women's lacrosse in the deep south. McCord has led championship teams in two NCAA sports (lacrosse and field hockey), has served as a selector for the US National Women's Lacrosse team, and has been chairperson for the North-South Senior Collegiate All*Star game. Over the past two years, Coach McCord has developed her own game, putting together cutting edge curriculum that has set the south on fire with lacrosse energy. She founded MCCSports, a lacrossedevelopment company, and partnered with deBeer Lacrosse to bring the game to more kids than ever before in the South. She is known for being a inexhaustible leader and a charismatic teacher of the game.

    "JU is a culmination of a lifetime of work and passion for the game of lacrosse. I truly want to make JU's women's and men's programs shining examples for other southern universities to follow as the sport explodes in our region. The President and Athletic Director want JU to become a `lacrosse school' which is very exciting for the state of Florida. This camp is a reflection of that attitude."

    Her current work includes: development of Florida's first and only statewide elite national travel club, the LaxManiax, consulting with Jacksonville University and other southern-based institutions to help develop NCAA lacrosse programs, and coaching Nease High School lacrosse. Prior to her arrival as head coach at Nease High School 3-years ago, the team struggled to have daily practices. Nearly all of the players had little or no prior lacrosse experience. Over the past two seasons, Nease has recorded consecutive district championships, earned a record of 31-10 and state ranking as high as #5. The Lax Maniax Elite club program has helped more than 30 graduating seniors move on to college careers.
