Fostering a Positive Coaching Environment

Women's lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. With this growth, the need for services for young women players has skyrocketed. Flare Lacrosse is committed to providing play for all skill levels through positive coaching methods.

Getting your child to sports practice shouldn't be a struggle. It shouldn't be one more thing that they "have to" do, like finishing homework or eating vegetables.  Our theory is that the game needs to remain fun, FOR ALL PLAYERS OF ALL AGES AND LEVELS, and these experiences need to be rewarding. We support all girls as they take their play to the next level, by growing their love of the game, and celebrating both individual and team successes.

 

Our coaching model allows players to not only increase their individual skill level but also grow as athletes and teammates. We develop young leaders on and off the field while supporting the WHOLE GIRL.


With these goals in mind, we are excited to build our club in Rhode Island!

MEET OUR OWNER, KERRI KELLEHER

February 14, 2018

Kerri has been coaching youth sports for ten years and has instructed hundreds of players. She's been a mom and on the sidelines of youth sports for even longer.  Kerri has seen the needs of young women athletes develop and change in recent years. Every afternoon, she works with the middle school athletes at the Providence Country Day School. There, she has seen the impact that friendships, school work, home struggles, and preteen/teen development have on young women.


She realized that to be successful in the field, girls need to be supported in EVERYTHING they have going on in their daily lives. That is why Kerri is committed to making youth sports an outlet and a safe place for athletes to discover new things and develop their skills, working their way to becoming their best selves.


Athletes are taught to focus on improving their individual skills while supporting their teammates as they explore their own journey.  We practice with the promise that as women, we will BUILD EACH OTHER UP.  

In addition to her time on the lacrosse field, Kerri coaches middle school soccer and basketball, and is the mom to three amazing lax players who love the game equally, despite varied levels of play. She is a certified US Lacrosse Coach and holds certifications from the National Federation of High Schools in the following:

  • Fundamentals of Coaching
  • RI State Coaching Component
  • NCAA Eligibility
  • First Aid
  • Concussions in Sports
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest

CAN I PARTICIPATE IN FLARE LACROSSE AND BE A PART OF MY TOWN OR SCHOOL TEAM?

March 15, 2018

This is an easy yes. We want to support and enrich town and school programs as well as continue to develop girl athletes. On this note, we will never create a conflict during regular or playoff season play.

WHAT DO I NEED TO PLAY?

March 15, 2018

You don't need to spend a lot to get started. Players only need a stick, mouth guard, and goggles. Indoor play requires sneakers while outdoor play requires cleats. That's all you need!

IS FLARE LACROSSE RIGHT FOR MY PLAYER?

Flare Lacrosse offers something for all players, regardless of their ability level. We are specifically focused and committed to the development of new and intermediate players.
