Peter Higgins Memorial Playday

Friends of Peter Higgins are starting a lacrosse event in Peter's name to instill his spirit for the game of lacrosse in the next generation of lacrosse players. No coach had more passion for the game of lacrosse, cared for his players, or had a story for the "moment" than Peter! Peter grew up and played in the hotbed of lacrosse on Long Island at Ward Melville HS for coaching legend Joe Cuozzo. After some time coaching in HS & College Peter came to New Jersey in 1997 to become the Head Coach of Princeton Day School and later became a beloved coach at Team Turnpike. His impact on players and families in the Greater Princeton area can not be measured! We have developed the concept of running a 6v6 play day that will help programs get a tuneup in before their rec game schedule starts. 6v6 creates a faster pace of lacrosse with more action, scoring, touches, reps, transition, and FUN! A style of play Peter loved!
