Lacrosse players, parents, and professionals;
I attended Rutgers University to study economics, entrepreneurial business and play the great game of lacrosse. I have been very fortunate to be able to continue that focus upon graduation in 2015. Creating and building Face-Off Factory and by being a member of the Harvard coaching staff and the Boston Cannons. These environments, allow me to learn new aspects of the game on the field and within the business world each day. Within these responsibilities, I am meeting people who are proactive in making the participation in the game of lacrosse better every day. With these positive influences, I have spent time discussing possible ways of applying my entrepreneurial degree and love of lacrosse in a more impactful way.
The Face-Off Factory is one skill aspect of the game of lacrosse. With the help of experienced businessman and fellow coaches, we have created Nardella Sports Inc. This business model will allow me and my team to address all lacrosse skills. Nardella Sports has been formed to coach and mentor student-athletes on Character, Academics, and Athletics. Face-Off Factory will be a sub-brand of Nardella Sports and will continue to be my main focus on the field. We will start training clinics in goalie skills, attack skills, midfield skills and defending skills.
Nardellasports.com will be the go-to site for education, clinic dates, times and locations. All of our initial Coaches / Mentors will be listed on this site. Our plan calls for not only the growth in the sport but the growth of the person. Part of the Nardella Sports service model will be a Mapping Process that outlines important high school milestones, leading up to the college decision. This process allows the family and student-athlete to be aware and accountable to the demands, and decisions of playing a college sport.
I am grateful to all those that have helped me build Face-Off Factory. I look forward to your help and support in building Nardella Sports into a business that helps families make good college decisions and creates student athletes that are prepared for successes on and off the field.
