Garret Rosiek Joins the Hoosier Lacrosse Academy

Westfield, Indiana - The Hoosier Lacrosse Academy has announced the hiring of Garret Rosiek as the new director of the Academy's travel program.  Rosiek will replace the owner and president, Ken Levinberg, so that Levinberg can focus on business development with the Academy as it continues to expand.

 

Rosiek debuted as a Hoosier Lacrosse Academy coach this summer and will return next summer on a full-time basis.  Rosiek, from the lacrosse hotbed of Philadelphia, is an elite lacrosse player for division 3 Aurora University, just outside Chicago.  As a player he led the nation in points in 2013 and was a 3-year starter and the team’s Offensive MVP. Additionally, Rosiek was a first team All-Conference award winner in 2013 and received honorable mention in 2012. He was an All-Conference lacrosse player in high school as well. Says Aurora University head coach Kylor Berkman, “Garret has been a tremendous leader during his career at Aurora. He has the tools, knowledge, and determination to develop any level of 
Lacrosse player."

 

From PhillyLacrosse.com:

In 2013, Rosiek enjoyed a brilliant season, leading the nation in assists (68), and finishing third in points (108) while scoring 40 goals and grabbing an amazing 64 groundballs as an attackman.

More impressive was his team’s success. Aurora went 16-4 in its third year of NCAA lacrosse, winning the Midwest Conference title and reeling off 15 games in a row before stunning Ohio Wesleyan, 13-9, in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Ohio Wesleyan has played lacrosse for over 70 years.

Testimonials

"I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with how you and your coaches are truly teaching the boys the fundamentals of the game. I appreciate your style or coaching and reinforcing the fundamentals during the drills and scrimmages. That is exactly what we were looking for and you guys are really delivering. Thank you – (Our Son) is having a blast and building a great passion for the game. "

"I wanted to let you know that Cameron really likes his coach. He is enjoying playing for him and even likes the workouts. He feels he is already a better player. We can't wait to see what the rest of the season brings."

"I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of coaches over the years and I will say that Ken brings enthusiasm for teaching the game of lacrosse that is second none. He has a tremendous amount of lacrosse knowledge and the uncommon ability to relate to and teach kids of all ages and skills levels. Ken’s passion for the game and dedication to making sure every player improves helps him build a great rapport with players and ensures that everyone builds self confidence and has FUN!"

"Coach Levinberg played an instrumental role during my early years of lacrosse by helping to set the groundwork of how I play the game and how I ultimately coach the sport we love. His ability to teach the fundamentals and connect with players has proven to have a positive impact on a countless number of individuals involved in the sport." 

Ryan Ludera -  IHSLA Coach of the Year 2006, Homestead High School

Coach Levinberg played a huge role in my development as a lacrosse player and coach. I had the fortune of playing for him through Team Illinois and later coaching with him through Lacrosse America. He is a great coach who brings a lot of enthusiasm and makes the game fun. He teaches lacrosse the right way and shares his deep knowledge and love for the sport. Under Kenny's guidance, Hoosier Lacrosse is sure to be a huge success.

"The training that I have seen, as a parent, at your practices has been phenomenal! Our son has received top-notch coaching from your staff. He has improved as a player and has even developed a desire to play more LSM (in addition to the defense that he has always played) because of Coach Mates' encouragement of him to do so this past summer. I hope that you continue to do a lot of position-specific training in practices where the players are broken out by position to work on techniques. It shows when they play in their games. Our son truly had FUN this past summer with the guys on his team and with the coaches. He loved playing for Kyle....he seemed like one of the guys! Thanks for all you do for the players!" - Hoosier Select Parent

 "Hoosier Lacrosse provided an opportunity to grow as a player and mature as a person. The impact you had on my son's sense of responsibility was amazing. Thanks for your efforts."  - 2012 Hoosier Select Parent

"Ken Levinberg is one of the greatest lacrosse coaches and friends I have ever had. At a very young age coach Levinberg was one of my very first lacrosse coaches and has coached me personally on and off the field since my youth and throughout college. If it wasn’t for coach Levinberg’s passion for coaching lacrosse I would have never fallen in love with this great game. In which, I would not have had the opportunity to play lacrosse at the collegiate level as well as the opportunity to coach at the collegiate level, I owe a lot to coach Levinberg and his passion for the game and I’ll never forget a coach like him."

 

Timothy Holden - Aurora University (Div III), Assistant Men’s Lacrosse Coach

"It is great to see the success Hoosier Lacrosse is experiencing. I have known Ken Levinberg for many years through both mens club lacrosse, and youth lacrosse. For numerous years Ken helped build the youth lacrosse community in Illinois. When he moved to Indiana, he started Hoosier Lacrosse from the ground up. He has a strong lacrosse background in excess of 30 years playing, coaching, and refereeing. Ken identifies well with all age groups, taking extra time to focus with the youngest kids, and making it a relaxed, fun and competitive time for the more advanced ages. He provides the perfect balance of skill, and lacrosse knowledge for any age.

 

I was very impressed with Hoosier Lacrosse at the 2011 Indian Prairie tournament. The players were passionate, energized, and very competitve; the earmark of any strong program. The future looks great for Hoosier Lacrosse, and with Ken guiding the program, and the addition of many quality coaches, the are a force to be reckoned with in the near future. Keep up the great work!"

 

Will Krogman - Lincoln Park Lacrosse Club (Mens) & Fox Valley Lacrosse Club (Youth)

"Hoosier Lacrosse has done an excellent job at training my goalies to perform at the highest level. I have sent several players to them that were very new to the position. I had both of them return varsity caliber goalies. One has even gone on to play at the collegiate level."


Brian Billand - Guerin Catholic Girls Coach

"With the rapid expansion of lacrosse I think there is no better person with the enthusiasm and overall knowledge than what Coach Kenny brings to Hoosier land! College lacrosse teams these days are looking for the diamond in the rough that received the proper teaching, is a great athlete, and has a great fundamental base. I was fortunate to have Coach Kenny instill those values in me at a early age which helped me prosper at the next levels. The game of lacrosse should always be fun and that is one of the foundations of how Coach Kenny teaches his players. There very well may be quite few diamonds in the rough in Hoosier land!"

"Your program is far superior to anything our town offers. It's a combination of teaching style, temperament, and techniques, and we'll stick with you! "

"There is a reason why all of the big name college LAX coaches are stressing the inclusion of box lacrosse in a developing player’s repertoire. After only 6 weeks of box, and returning to field lacrosse, my son (9th grade attack) is displaying marked improvement in stick skills, fakes, and “patience” around the crease. His goal percentage, accordingly, has vastly improved. I cannot more highly recommend box to any developing player (especially midi/attack) who is serious about advancing his game. On top of that, I easily see this gaining in popularity to where today’s kids will be playing box on the weekends when they are my age. It’s fast, fun, and great to watch. Ken, Kyle, and others at Hoosier Lacrosse – thank you for exposing us to this. You are doing a wonderful job and my son loves it!!"

"His game has gone to a whole new level with the box skills he is gaining in your program. Big fans. I tell everyone about the program. Glad to see it growing."

"Thanks so much for offering the box lacrosse program. (Our Son) and his buddies have found it to be a blast, and are looking forward to playing again. I think Hoosier Lacrosse is a great program for our community."

"Hey Hoosier Lacrosse! I am originally from New York where I literally grew up with a stick in my hands and played for some great coaches and programs.  Because of my background I am a bit of lacrosse snob, so when it came time to teach my son the proper fundamentals I researched the different organizations in the area and I am so glad I found you guys. East Coast instruction in the middle of Indiana...I love it! I just wanted to commend you on your top notch box and field programs and the excellent coaching of my son. He comes away from every meeting feeling like he learned a lot and most importantly he has fun.  Fundamentals are everything and your organization really teaches real true lacrosse. Thanks and looking forward to your next program!"

"Our Son really developed more lacrosse skills in the two months of summer lacrosse than in three seasons of spring lacrosse. Even greater is the maturity He has shown since being a part of this program. Great job."

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for such a great program. (Our Son) got more playing time and skill development in this short season than he did throughout the entire outdoor season of our local program. Thanks again for all your time, effort and dedication to teaching the boys."

"He made the HSE/Fishers 5th/6th spring travel team. There will potentially be five other B teams in the 5th/6th league from HSE/Fishers this season, so he beat out a lot of kids who have been playing longer. I attribute the development work through Hoosier Lacrosse to his early success...thank you! A great accomplishment for only going into his second season!"

"The Hoosier Lacrosse programs were some of the very first clinics our son took when he was in elementary school. He really improved his shot mechanics and overall knowledge of the game which took him to the next level of play. Coach Ken has been positive, enthusiastic and brings a high level of personal attention and passion to each clinic. (Our son) is looking forward to his next clinics!"

"Coach Levinberg is a great coach. He cares about his players, teaches key fundamentals and is genuinely interested in the development of young men and women. But my favorite part of Coach Kenny, whether playing with him, against him or coaching a drill, is that I always have fun."

"I cannot say enough good things about Hoosier Lacrosse and Ken Levinberg. My son takes lessons with Ken and always comes away learning things. Ken is very knowledgeable about lacrosse since he played himself, and that is a rare thing in Indiana. Hoosier Lacrosse is all about teaching the fundamentals of lacrosse as well as taking your child's level up a notch in specific areas they may want to concentrate on." 

"Hoosier Lacrosse provided a unique opportunity to combine our group's love of international sports into a team building activity for our management group. Hoosier Lacrosse provided an overview of the sport, an agenda to guide the expectation and instructed the activity both directly and as a group. Within a very short amount of time, the group was engaging in an actual game of Lacrosse ... the first time for everyone and it was greatly enjoyed by all. It certainly brought out some of the competitive behaviors you don't get a chance to see everyday in the office!" 

Carrie Gallagher - Eli Lilly

"As a player, Coach Levinberg fostered my early development and knowledge of the game. He made the game fun and motivated me not only to work hard, but also to become a student of the game. Coach L focuses on fundamentals and provides players with a solid foundation needed to become great. Over the years I have played for and worked with Kenny, and I have always admired his ability to inspire, teach, and guide in such a fun, lighthearted manner."
