Lacrosse Legend, Michelle Tumolo, to Host Special Coaching Clinic this Summer


STX Athlete and Team USA player, Michelle Tumolo, is set to host her own special lacrosse coaching clinic at St Swithun’s School, Winchester, this summer.

The two-hour event on Thursday 15 August will coincide with Tumolo coaching at the St Swithun’s Triple Arrow summer camp on 15 & 16 August.

Tumolo is one of the stars of the modern game and has been playing since 2005 when she was at high school in her home state of New Jersey.

The 29-year-old attacker graduated from high school with records for goals, assists, ground balls, and draw controls and was quickly snapped up by the Syracuse Orange lacrosse team while studying at Syracuse University.

It was during her three years playing for the Orange that Tumolo really came into her own, posting the highest ever single-season totals in points and assists for a first year student.

In 2012, she also became the first Syracuse Orange player to be awarded the National Attacker of the Year award by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA).

After graduating from Syracuse, and despite suffering a serious ligament injury in 2013, she was named in the US national team for the 2015-16 season where she continues to play, wearing the number 35.

Off the field, Tumolo has been a coach since 2013, spending two seasons at the University of Florida before returning to the Syracuse as assistant coach in 2015.

Since 2016, she has been a coach for the University of Oregon, specialising in coordinating their offense.

The St Swithun’s Triple Arrow summer camp is in partnership with England Lacrosse’s equipment supplier STX and is a unique opportunity to listen to one of the best lacrosse players in the world speak about her craft and offer insight and advice on developing your game.
