Our Coaches


Coach Marko

My love of lacrosse began 42 years ago growing up in Long Island when a friend brought his older brother's lacrosse sticks to play with at recess. I've played regularly my whole life, and I was fortunate to move to Atlanta in the early 90s at a time when lacrosse was just starting to be played here.
As a law student, I was able to play all over the Southeast with the MCLA-level Emory University team.   I played in various adult leagues for many years.
Now as a parent, I've coached more than 9 seasons at the youth level.  I obtained my first US Lacrosse coaching certification years ago, and am constantly working on adding new certifications and learning new coaching methods attending lectures and clinics with my fellow Wheeler Junior coaches. My young players will tell you my favorite part of lacrosse is defense, and that ground balls are the most important statistic!

Coach Brian

Coaching Experience:

I was introduced to lacrosse in high school  and fell in love with the sport.  However, growing up in Miami, it was not exactly the hot bed of lacrosse growth it is today and I did not become active again in the sport until my children showed a spark for the game.  I have coached lacrosse at Wheeler Jr for the past 4 years across our age groups and have a level 1 Certification through USA lacrosse.  My goal as a coach is to create fun, high energy learning experiences so that our children develop a lifelong love of the game.  Additionally, I believe the Wheeler Jr program is special because it has an opportunity to introduce the game to kids who previously would not have been exposed to lacrosse.

 Before my career as a tech entrepreneur, I spent a number of years in the military and was a Special Forces officer (Green Beret).  Those experiences heavily influence my coaching and I focus on intelligently developing fitness, mastering the basics, and being great teammates.

I have three children who all love lacrosse: my daughter plays for the Wheeler High School team and two boys play for Wheeler Jr.




Coach Ken

Coaching Experience:
I've head coached boys and girls lacrosse for 12 years, 24 seasons.  I coach boys summer and winter tournament lacrosse teams and I am Level 3 certified with USA Lacrosse.  I also coach boys and girls basketball teams between lacrosse seasons.  My favorite coaching experiences are watching the athletes learn, develop, and have fun.


I grew up in Raleigh, NC and graduated from Appalachian State with a BS in Kinesiology and a MS in Sports Management, and graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an MBA.   My daughter, Kate, plays lacrosse for the Wheeler High School girls team and loves Wheeler.  My son, Will, plays for the Jr Wheeler lacrosse program.  We have a passion for lacrosse and enjoy living in this area.
