 Chuck Jaffe - Founder of BullsEye Lacrosse

   Chuck Jaffe started BullsEye Lacrosse to do specialized training for players of all ages and genders. A long-time player and coach, Chuck is a technician with goalies and shooters, having developed a unique set of specialized drills and tools; the BullsEye game started as one of his training exercises.

   Chuck is the founder of Cohasset Youth Lacrosse, one of the most successful youth programs in eastern Massachusetts, having started both the boys program (1996) and the girls program (2002).

   In 2006, Chuck was named by U.S. Lacrosse as the nation’s “most innovative youth lacrosse coach.” (http://www.uslacrosse.org/news/2005/youthawards.phtml) Since that time, Chuck has been a speaker each year at the National Lacrosse Convention, talking to coaches about his best practices for developing successful, enthusiastic, properly trained youth players.

   Chuck has played and coached around the country for more than three decades, having been a high school head coach and assistant coach for boys (the Swain School in Allentown, Pa.; South Shore Vo-Tech in Hanover, Mass.) and girls (Cohasset High School in Cohasset, Mass.), a player/coach on teams that won their divisions in the prestigious Lake Placid Summit and Vail Shootout tournaments, and for a team that was a finalist in the master’s tournament at the 2002 World Games in Perth, Australia. He also spent five years coaching the goalies with the Mass Elite club team.

   Chuck was a long-time official in the men’s game, but is now a rated umpire for women’s lacrosse and is a member of the Eastern Mass. Women’s Lacrosse Umpires Association (www.emwlua.org). Chuck played his collegiate lacrosse at the University of Michigan (http://www.umich.edu/~menslax/), and his high school ball at Livingston (NJ) High School.

   In addition to his coaching and umpiring responsibilities, Chuck is the editor of the New England Lacrosse Journal (www.laxjournal.com), where he also writes the “State of the Game” column. He is the home play-by-play voice of the Boston Blazers on the National Lacrosse League Network, and he still plays lacrosse regularly, manning the net for the BullsEye team in the ZILL indoor league and the South Shore Stragglers in the Olde New England Lacrosse League (www.onell.org).

   When he’s not talking, playing, coaching, reffing, organizing, discussing, assisting or dreaming of things lacrosse-related, Chuck is a senior columnist for MarketWatch (www.marketwatch.com), writing about money and mutual funds for the world’s leading business news Web site. His work is syndicated to newspapers nationwide.

Todd Zahurak - Coach

Todd Zahurak takes over in 2009 as the boys varsity coach at Westwood High School after being the head coach at South Shore Vo-Tech for the past six seasons. South Shore Vo-Tech made the post-season tournament in four of Todd's six years at the helm. Prior to coaching the Vikings, Todd coached at Andover High School and Mount Ida College.
   Todd played his collegiate lacrosse at Oswego State University in New York, earning all-league recognition his junior and senior seasons, and representing the SUNY Athletic Conference in the North-South game after his senior campaign. A veteran club player in New England, Todd currently plays club lacrosse for the North Shore Lacrosse Club, the Mega-men and, in box lacrosse, the BullsEye team.
   When he's not on a lacrosse field, Todd spends his days at South Shore Vo-Tech High School as a guidance counselor, and the weekends with his family.
 

Kevin DeVito - Coach  

 Kevin DeVito is one of the best all-around lacrosse players in New England, with a career that has seen success at all levels, and all positions. Being a jack of all trades started for Kevin in Cohasset High School, where he was a four-year starting goalie, but would come out of the cage to play midfield on man-up situations because he was one of the team’s top midfielders and shooters. Upon graduating from Cohasset High in 2000 – having excelled in wrestling, soccer and lacrosse – Kevin played four years of Division 1 lacrosse at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., part of the highly competitive Patriot League. His play at Lafayette included one season in which he was ranked second in the nation in save percentage, according to Lacrosse Magazine. After graduation, Kevin returned to New England and, as a coach, was instrumental in helping his alma mater reach the state finals in 2005. When Kevin came back to New England and started looking for a club team, he found programs that already had established goalies, so Kevin re-established himself as a midfielder and attackman; he currently plays lacrosse year-round, starring in the CroArt outdoor league in Boston during the summers and indoors during the winter on the BullsEye team in the ZILL in Canton.
