It will be the fourth time the Hatters’ coach has addressed the gathering of roughly 150 of lacrosse's top coaches, officials, trainers and administrators as a presenter at the sport's largest educational and networking event. The event is scheduled for January 13-15 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
“We've targeted leaders in lacrosse who are passionate about developing the game by sharing their knowledge with coaches and officials at the youth and high school levels,” Beth Porreca, director of events at US Lacrosse, said.
Moore, who came to Stetson after a stint as assistant women's lacrosse coach at the University of Vermont, will host “Players Guiding Each Other: Team Building and Leadership Skills Part II” at 9 a.m. January 15. The presentation will build upon basics presented in Part I of this topic at the 2011 convention.
The 2011 presentation will be distributed, and new ideas and strategies for leadership and team building will be covered. Moore has been in the collegiate coaching ranks since 2004 after spending two years coaching and playing in England. She played collegiately at the University of New Hampshire.
“This will be my fourth year presenting at the US Lacrosse Convention in Philadelphia and I am excited to represent both Stetson University and our lacrosse program,” Moore said. “It is a great way to give back to a sport that gives so much and I am passionate about the topic I am presenting on – Team Building and Leadership. It will be great opportunity to expose the lacrosse community to another Florida lacrosse program.”
Herm Edwards, a nine-year defensive back with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles and later the head coach of the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs, will deliver the keynote address at 7 p.m. on January 13.
