Welcome to Hammerhead Lacrosse (formerly AINCYL)

We are committed to providing student athletes with top quality instruction in lacrosse skills, team culture, character development and leadership, all within an affirmative, fun and safe environment.

Hammerhead Lacrosse is led by a board of directors with a new VP and Chief Operating Officer, Gregg Russell, who has significant experience running successful youth sports programs in lacrosse and golf. Our U8 through U14 coaching staff is led by Keith McCoy who has coached at many levels from youth through high-school over a ten year period, and served as a director of Lacrosse for a major youth sports program in Long Island. Our U19 team is led by Tom Fricano who has been coaching youth lacrosse for over 15 years and has been involved in many aspects and roles supporting and growing the game of lacrosse including youth rec league (U9-U19), HS feeder, and travel tournament teams. Tom served in several roles with the Longhorn Club Lacrosse, Longhorn Youth Lacrosse, North Georgia Lacrosse, Lambert Lacrosse Scholarship Foundation, and supported other club teams from start-up through launch.
