MORRISTOWN, New Jersey – T3 Lacrosse today announced the hiring of T3 Central Elite Head Coach Kristen Nicholson to the new role of T3 West Regional Director. In this role Nicholson will be overseeing the entire T3 West region, including programming, recruiting, and player development. Nicholson assumed her role on February 17, 2020.
“I’m excited to support the region’s growth as the premier lacrosse club in Lehigh Valley,” said Nicholson. “I look forward to reinforcing the T3 mission of inspiring young lacrosse players to be self-confident, instill a strong work ethic, and help each of them develop into the complete athlete.”
Nicholson, a Long Island native, comes from an extensive lacrosse background. As a collegiate player for Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham, she finished her career with 179 points, won MVP in the ECAC Championship, and received All-Conference honors. Nicholson returned to coach at her Alma Mater in 2012, and then stepped into the role of interim head coach for the Devils in the 2013 season, guiding the team to a MAC-Freedom Conference Championship title. Nicholson was named the head coach for Moravian College in 2014, tasked with instituting a new NCAA program for the 2015 season. She has since helped the Greyhounds become nationally competitive, leading the program to two Landmark Conference semi-final appearances and one ECAC semi-final appearance in her first four seasons.
“We are extremely confident she will enhance the T3 experience for all families,” said T3 Elite Lacrosse Director, Kat Holley. “We are very excited to welcome such a knowledgeable, connected expert into this role and are confident that our families will appreciate all the value Kristen is bringing to our T3 team.”
Nicholson takes on this new role with a lengthy history of coaching for T3 Lacrosse. After beginning her new role at Moravian College, she jumped in as a head coach for T3 West Elite. When her family moved to Hunterdon County, NJ, she began coaching for T3 Central Elite. With Nicholson’s widespread relationships in the Lehigh Valley area, returning to T3 West as the regional director will be a seamless transition.
