New Galena Girls Lacrosse Coaches Announced

Galena Lacrosse Club is proud to announce Diana Hopper and Felice Artuso as the 2017 coaches for the Galena Girls' Lacrosse team.

Mrs. Hopper is already part of the Galena Lacrosse family and has been a High Sierra Lacrosse League (HSLL) coach for U11 and U15 girls for the past three years. Her goals are to encourage a love of the sport in the High School girls and continue their tradition of excellence in the league. She holds an IDEA certification as a Personal Fitness Trainer,  an  ACSM as a Personal Fitness Instructor, and is certified by US Lacrosse in Women’s Game Level 1, Level 2, Women’s Fundamentals of Goalkeeping, and by the Positive Coaching Alliance as a  Double Goal Coach

"I would like to share the rich traditions of the oldest sport in North America, while developing each player's skills and techniques to enable their consistent growth to becoming the complete player. On and off the field, I hope to facilitate players to develop a strong personal code of conduct which reflects self-confidence, a steadfast work ethic, and team camaraderie." Coach Hopper shared when interviewed for the position.

Felice Artuso, originally from Maryland, was recruited to San Diego State University and played NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse. A communications graduate and a four-year student athlete on the SDSU Women's Lacrosse team, she shares a passion for lacrosse. After college, she was the Head Coach for Check-Hers Elite Lacrosse Club in Maryland, and has a proven ability to succeed in a fast-paced, multi-disciplinary environment as a coach. Ms. Artuso's experience will be a draw for more female players to the Galena Lacrosse Girls team. She can share the recruiting process with our current female athletes.

Ms. Artuso holds many honors and distinctions including, MPSF Rookie of the Week, MPSF All Conference player, SDSU Women’s Lacrosse Team Rookie of the Year, Dean’s List ranking top 10% in the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts, and was a 3-time Scholar Athlete.

Both women are friends on and off the field, and share great enthusiasm for the 2017 season. The Galena Lacrosse Club Board will hold a meet-and-greet soon for potential players, current players and parents. Look for upcoming announcements.

Galena Lacrosse 2015 Season Preview

The 2015 lacrosse season is almost here and the Galena Program is looking to build off of its 2014 successes. Last season, the Galena girl's team went undefeated in league play (again), won the league title, and represented the HSLL at the inaugural State Championships. The Galena boy's team also won their third HSLL title in a row, however finished as the runner-up in the State Championship final. Both teams left the season on losses and have had plenty of time to reflect on the highs and lows of the 2014 season.

CALLING ALL PLAYERS: Start Running.

We have a lot to accomplish this year.  Do the following daily.

  1. Put your running shoes by your bed with socks, shorts/pants, shirt, gloves, hat. 
  2. Wake up. Don't think.
  3. Put pants on one leg at a time. Next shirt. Rest of clothes and shoes. One step at a time.
  4. Eat something small on the way out the door. It doesn't matter what it is. Drink a glass of water.
  5. Run for 20 mins minimum. More is better. Run rain, snow, hail, sleet, or firestorm. Run in boots if you have to. Do at least two full-speed 100yd sprints in the last five minutes. Do not walk. The slowest you go is a jog. Waddle if necessary.
  6. Do at least 20 burpees at the finish. More is better. You have a lot of these in your future.
  7. Dry off, eat a good breakfast, and congratulate yourself for being an athlete. Have a great day.
  8. Repeat.
Also, hit the wall.
