Shaun Werle

I played three years of attack.  My high school (Nathan Hale) was the first public school in Seattle to have a team.  I decided to join the first time I played catch.  Unfortunately, Central Washington University did not establish a club until after I graduated.  While in Anchorage, AK I helped establish year-round youth and adult lacrosse.  My yellow lab is named Lax.  I am Boys and Girls Level 1 Coach certified by US Lacrosse.

I played lacrosse at Springfield College in Springfield MA and am a defenseman (long pole) at heart.  As I was leaving my parent's driveway to move to ND, I was offered a job to coach middle school lacrosse in PA.  I teach PE at Pioneer and Highland Acres and have incorporated a lacrosse module into my yearly curriculum.  I have been a Ski Patrol volunteer and trainer for years.   I am Boys Level 1 Coach certified by US Lacrosse.
