Coach

Nick Cotter

Nick Cotter, the camp's lead instructor, is currently an assistant coach at Saint Leo University. Cotter, a native of Whitby, Ontario, has a storied playing career both in the collegiate and professional levels, and brings a wealth of coaching experience. 

Read Full Bio

Cotter was a key player for the Dowling College Golden Lions from 2005-08. The three-time NCAA All-American (2006-08) helped his team to its first ever National Championship title in 2006. He earned First Team All-Conference, and was a Second Team All-Conference selection in 2006 and 2007. 

The 2008 graduate was named to the NCAA DII All-Star Team from 2006 through 2008, and played in the USILA North/South All Star Game in the summer of 2008. Additionally, Cotter set a record for most goals scored in program history from the midfield. Throughout his four year career, the leftie midfielder compiled 113 goals, 22 assists, and 118 ground balls in 53 games played.

Cotter was drafted into the National Lacrosse League directly out of college in 2008, getting picked up by the Boston Blazers in the second round as the 14th overall pick.  His break into the professional levels didn’t end there, as he was also picked up by the Major Series Lacrosse league in the first round as the fifth overall pick to the Peterborough Lakers, where he played from 2008 to 2011. After three seasons with the Blazers where Cotter racked up 46 goals, 38 assists, and 122 loose balls in 43 games, he was picked up by the Buffalo Bandits where he played in 2012 and 2013, and also played on the LXM Pro Tour on Team East in 2011 and 2012.

His coaching career has been just as impressive as his playing career, with his most recent stint as an assistant coach for the Charlotte Copperheads. Cotter also has coaching experience as a graduate assistant for Mercyhurst North East, as well as at the Nike Lacrosse camps in Boston.

You can call 1-800-645-3226 to receive the goalie discount over the phone or you can indicate that you are eligible for the goalie discount in the “comments” field when registering via our secure website.  Goalie discount cannot be combined with any other discount.

OTHER MBSC/NIKE SPORTS CAMPS AT CURRY COLLEGE:

In addtion to Nike Boy's Lacrosse Camp, MBSC offers a Nike Girl's Lacrosse Camp, Nike Tennis Camp, Nike Golf Camp, Nike Basketball Camp, Nike Softball Camp and Nike Soccer Camp. Many campers who play more than one sport are able to play 1 week of lacrosse and another week of another sport (without ever having to move locations… they can even stay in the same dorm room!)

When mixing sports, campers must participate in at least 1 full week of each sport. Sports can not be mixed during the week. This is because each sports camp is an Intensified Training Program and should not be interrupted mid week.

Awesome!

This lacrosse camp is great! The small group instruction is the best way to learn. It is fun working with other players and coaches who are able to work with us one-on-one when needed. Awesome camp!!

Thanks!

I personally am a goalie but this lacrossse camp did so much for me. It not only was a fun week but it was full of skills drills and lots of work on things you were not the best at. This camp was my favorite of 3, because it was the most fun and helped me make friendships that will last a long time.

Highlight of the summer!

I really enjoyed my experience at camp. I made friends and was able to demonstrate my skills at a competitive level. I learned better throwing and shooting techniques that will help me as an attacker. I thank the counselors at Curry College for their time and support.
