Congratulations to Head Boys' Varsity Lacrosse Coach Nic Bell, who has been invited to share his coaching expertise at the upcoming Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMCLA) Winter Summit in Orlando, Florida. Founded with a mission to educate, the IMLCA bills the Summit as a weekend of educational and invaluable resources for coaches, players, and parents. There are currently 700 registrants for the program, which begins on Thursday. Bell will present to the college and high school coaches in attendance during a Saturday session entitled, "Drills to Enhance Pace of Play and Practice Competitiveness."
From Andy Dunn, Director of Athletics and Afternoon Program, "Congratulations to Nic Bell on his invitation to present at the 2021 IMLCA convention. Nic's inclusion in this event is a testament to his reputation in the lacrosse community as a knowledgeable and effective teacher of the game. Through Nic's tutelage, Taft Boys' Lacrosse has risen to the upper echelon of prep lacrosse. We are proud to have him in our community as a coach and mentor for our students."
Since his arrival at Taft in 2018, Bell has led his teams to Founders League and Geico High School Lacrosse National championships. He has been the head coach for Team New England and Team Connecticut at the Under Armour Underclass All-American games, and is a co-founder of the Prep School Summer Challenge. In addition, he has helped place over 40 Taft boys' lacrosse players on NCAA Division I and III rosters in the ACC, Ivy League, Big 10, Patriot League and NESCAC.
