Meet the Coaches:
Madeline Lewis, Executive Director of The Coyotes Youth Lacrosse Program (Florida, USA)
Originally from Maryland, Maddie was introduced to lacrosse very young. Maddie started playing lacrosse in PE classes in elementary school, which led her to start playing competitively with a youth league at age 7. From there, her love of lacrosse began and motivated her to play in middle school and early high school. After a knee injury she stepped back from playing the sport and focused on working with children internationally and domestically while going to school at the University of Tampa. In 2016, Maddie’s love for lacrosse reemerged with a coaching opportunity. Since then she has loved working with both children and lacrosse as the Girl's Program Director, to the Executive Assistant of the CYL Program, and finally to her current position, the Executive Director of the CYL Program.
Dan Soviero, Previous Executive Director, and current Coach of The Coyotes Youth Lacrosse Program (Florida, USA)
Dan first picked up a stick in eighth grade. Through amazing mentorship and coaching Dan was able to maximize his drive to become one of the top mid-fielders in the state of Florida, receiving first team All-American honors twice and taking his team to the final four. Dan started his coaching career in high school and has continued for over eight years. He has coached many teams, from the national travel level to local youth and travel programs. He has coached around the USA from New York to California, and everywhere in between. Dan believes that developing a passion for the sport is the first step to success. His close circle of friends includes some of the top lacrosse talent in the country. Dan is committed to bringing in excellent staff and guest coaches. Dan is also the founder of Signature Lacrosse–a lacrosse equipment company based in Tampa, Florida.
