Read Full Bio

Melissa Jaworski joined the University of Hartford Women’s Lacrosse program as an assistant coach in July 2017. She came to the Hawks after two seasons leading the program at Wells College.

Jaworski spent the last two seasons heading the program at Wells College in Aurora, N.Y. The Express won four games in her first season as head coach in the 2016 season and had two players earn all-conference recognition, including the NEAC’s Rookie of the Year and first-team selection Mackenzie Maloney. Wells had three all-conference players in the 2017 season.
Prior to her time at Wells, Jaworski served as an assistant at Division II Lincoln Memorial University in 2014 and 2015, including the institution’s first-ever varsity women’s lacrosse season. Jaworski assumed recruiting, game planning and other administrative responsibilities for the Railsplitters.

Alongside her duties at Lincoln Memorial, Jaworski also served as an ambassador for Legacy Global Sports, coordinating and directing high school tryouts in the Tennessee and Carolinas regions for the national Brine Lacrosse tournament. She also served as a club lacrosse coach with LaxManiax, one of the premier girls’ club lacrosse teams in the southern region.
Jaworski joined the collegiate coaching ranks after an impressive high school coaching career at Allen D. Nease High School in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Hired as head girls’ lacrosse coach in 2012, Jaworski coached the team to a 7-9 record before dramatically improving the team’s fortune in 2013, racking up 11 victories in 17 games while ranking within the top 40 teams in the state. Concluding her career at Nease with a runner-up finish in the District Tournament, Jaworski managed all aspects of the program while helping five of her nine senior student-athletes go on to play collegiate lacrosse.
A four-year NCAA Division I student-athlete, Jaworski played two years at Binghamton University before concluding her career at Jacksonville University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration, graduating in 2012. Across her career, Jaworski made appearances in 34 games while scoring 16 goals and five assists for 21 total points while hauling in 13 draw controls.
A 2008 graduate of Jamesville-Dewitt High School in Jamesville, N.Y., Jaworski scored 43 goals and added 12 assists as a junior en route to earning First Team All-League and team Most Valuable Offensive Player honors. As a sophomore, Jaworski earned Second Team All-League honors after earning Honorable Mention merits as a freshman for the Red Rams.

Instruction was very valuable!

Camp was great! I loved the demonstration of shooting speeds by the coaches. The coach:camper ratio was great... always had time for questions/clarifications. Goalie specific instruction was very valuable.

Loved it!

Many thanks for all the great coaching, support and encouragement that my daughter received last week at camp. She loved it, and loved YOU guys, and I cannot thank you enough for being so great to her. She truly had a great time, learned lots and hopefully will now apply that knowledge to the field to help her excel even more.
