ASA Lacross line

Brooklyn, NY– ASA College Athletic Director Ken Wilcox announced the addition of a men’s lacrosse program. The Avengers will begin National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) competition in the 2012 spring season. The program becomes the first junior college lacrosse team in New York City. In addition to winning games, the goal of the program is to graduate student-athletes so they can continue their academic and athletic careers at four-year colleges and universities.

ASA has hired Vince Daniels as the program’s first head coach. Coach Daniels comes to ASA following ten seasons as a member of the New York University (NYU) coaching staff. He was the Violets’ head coach from 2002-2007 as well as the assistant coach/defensive coordinator from 2008 – 2011. He was also Director of the NY Metro Conference of the National College Lacrosse League for the 2011 season. Daniels is a graduate of Hofstra University where he played lacrosse from 1987-1990. He was a member of the 1988 and 1989 East Coast Conference championship teams.

“Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the country,” Wilcox said. “With the tremendous growth at the high school level it is a great opportunity to introduce lacrosse on the junior college level in New York City. We expect to attract high caliber student athletes from the NY metro area as well as regions throughout the country.”

Potential players interested in learning more about the ASA lacrosse program can contact Coach Daniels at 718-522-9073 (extension -2229)or email him at coachdaniels@asa.edu.
