Coaching Staff

Lacrosse Canada is proud to announce that the following coaches and staff members will be representing Canada at the upcoming World Lacrosse U21 Men's Lacrosse World Championship taking place in Limerick, Ireland in 2022.

Matt Brown

Head Coach
Burnaby, BC
 
Brown currently serves as the Associate Head Coach with the University of Denver Pioneers (Denver, Colorado), a team that captured the 2015 NCAA Division I Championship. He has gained tremendous experience coaching on the international stage with Team Canada, including stints as Offensive Coordinator during the 2012 U19 Men's World Championship and 2014 Men's World Championship. He was also the Assistant Coach for Team Canada during the 2012 Duel in Denver and Associate Coach during the 2016 World Championship. Prior to his coaching career, Brown was an offensively gifted player with the University of Denver Pioneers, and still holds a place atop many offensive categories in the school's record books.

Taylor Wray

Associate Head Coach
Edmonton, AB
 
Wray has enjoyed a long and successful lacrosse career, both as a player and a coach. After a strong collegiate career at Duke University, he began playing for the NLL's Calgary Roughnecks in 2004. On the international stage, Wray won multiple medals with Team Canada, including a silver with the 1999 U-19 men's field team and a gold with the 2006 men's field and 2007 men's indoor teams. He began his coaching career in 2003 when he joined the coaching staff at Queens University of Charlotte (N.C.) as assistant coach. He then spent four seasons as assistant coach for Lehigh University (2008-11), before taking on his current role as head coach for Saint Joseph’s University (Philadelphia, PA) in 2011. In recent years, Wray has continued to represent Team Canada internationally. He was the defensive coordinator at the 2010 and 2014 Men's World Championships and also served as head coach for the 2012 and 2016 U19 men's field team.

Merrick Thomson

Offensive Coordinator
Stoney Creek, ON
 
Thomas is currently the Offensive Coordinator with the University at Albany Great Danes (Albany, New York), who are near the top on quite a few NCAA Division I ranking lists. As a player for Albany, Thomson was one of the best pure goal scorers of his time. His 188 career tallies puts him 7th on the NCAA Division I all-time goal scoring list, behind fellow Canadian greats Mike French, Gary Gait, Stan Cockerton, and Zack Greer. "It's going to be a great event to be a part of this summer, especially playing on home soil" said Thomson. He gained experience representing his country as a player (2007 WILC, 2010 Men's World Championship) and was excited for the chance to do so again as a coach, adding "Anytime you get to be a part of a World Championship and work with the best athletes and coaches in the world it is a true privilege." 

Mark Miyashita

Defensive Coordinator
 

Shawn Wilkins

Assistant Coach 
 

Geoff Snider

Assistant Coach / Prairie Scout
Calgary, AB
 
Snider returns to the Team Canada program in the same role that he held during the 2012 U19 Men's World Championship in Turku, Finland. He joined the coaching ranks after a distinguished playing career at both the professional and international level. He was a first-round draft pick and perennial all-star in both the National Lacrosse League (NLL) and Major League Lacrosse (MLL). He was also privileged enough to lead his country on multiple occasions, competing at the Men's World Championship in 2006, 2010, and 2012. "It is a huge honour to be a part of the national team program, whether you are a player or a coach," stated Snider. "Being able to be on a Canadian sideline and wear the maple leaf on your jersey is truly the biggest honour in sport." A leader on and off the field, he currently works as the President and Head Coach at ELEV8 Lacrosse Inc, a lacrosse development program, located in Calgary, AB.
