Jaworski was recently hired as the Head Coach of the Wells College (NY) women’s lacrosse team in August 2015. Jaworski comes to Wells after serving as the graduate assistant women’s lacrosse coach at NCAA Division II Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn.

At Lincoln Memorial, Jaworski assisted Head Coach Caitlyn Corace in the institution’s first-ever varsity women’s lacrosse season. She also assumed recruiting, game planning and other administrative responsibilities for the Railsplitters.

At season’s end, the team had many individual players rank within the top-30 of statistical leaders in NCAA Division II. Goalkeeper Shannon Novak finished fifth nationally in saves per game (11.50) and 26th in total saves (138) while midfielder Bre’Asia James hauled in 4.67 draw controls per game to rank 18th in Division II.

Alongside her responsibilities 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 runners-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.

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.

I want to thank you and the coaches for doing such a great job. Our daughter really enjoyed the camp at Southwestern. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of coaches; they were positive and very motivating and helped improve her skills. Thanks for everything.

Best camp!

Tyler told us it was the best camp yet for Lacrosse and to my delight she actually admitted that she got a lot out of it, not bad for a kid that is already an accomplished lacrosse player. We will see you next year.

Great opportunity to make friends who love lacrosse!

My daughter loved the opportunity to make new friends with the same love for lacrosse!  The coaches at this camp were friendly and great role models for the girls.  The only thing I would suggest to future campers is bringing some snacks for after dinner becasue they eat pretty early and have a session after.  My daughter said that they only really have access to vending machines after so a few healthy options would be a good thing to pack!
