Dan Deckelbaum graduated from University of Delaware in 2007 with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. As a Senior he was a leader on the first lacrosse team in UD history to win a conference championship, and advance to the NCAA final 4. After college Dan was drafted by the Chicago Machine where he started his professional lacrosse career.
Today he is a certified personal trainer also certified by the National Association of Speed and Explosion (NASE). He plays professional lacrosse currently for the Hamilton Nationals and Philadelphia Wings in Major League Lacrosse and the National Lacrosse League. He has also been a part of Team USA Indoor Lacrosse since 2009. As a coach Dan has won a Delaware state championship with Tower Hill High School in 2009 and a District 1 (Philadelphia) Championship in 2013. In 2013 he was voted EPLCA assistant coach of the year. Dan also has coached with Thhe Dukes LC and currently is the offensive coach for NXT 2015's. His overall record as a high school coach is 65-14 in 5 seasons. As a trainer Dan teaches by suiting up with pads and working on individual skills with players. This allows him to teach the skills hands on, evaluate and break down each individual athlete's game. This could mean going 1-1 against a Defender and working on his holds and footwork, or shooting and dodging with an offensive player to teach him dodging angles, release points and how to shoot accurately from every angle. Or shooting on a goalie to improve his quickness, footwork and reaction time. Dan is very thankful to be able to give back to the great game of lacrosse that has given him so much. "There is nothing better than working with a player and seeing his hard work pay off by reaching his goals of playing and succeeding at the next level."
Taking you and your game to the next level!
