The online submission is so convenient and helpful because I can send in the best portions of my shooting workout, and then receive feedback regarding footwork, explosion, and hand placement. This has helped take my shooting to another level.

Deemer…Just a quick note to say thanks for all the time and effort you’ve put into training Drew over the last seven months. The combination of both individual and group sessions have really helped to develop not only his lacrosse skills but his confidence as well. Your focus on technique and attention to detail is really showing in Drew’s game and he’s realizing through your efforts together how much hard work pays off. Additionally, the way that you have the boys process “why” they are working on what they are working on has really helped his lacrosse IQ and his field awareness. We look forward to Drew training with you for years to come. The best part, he has a blast training with you.


My son got more out of his sessions with Deemer in 5 weeks than he received in a full year of sessions from other instructors. Deemer’s knowledge of the game plus his disposition with the kids makes him the perfect coach.

I have had the pleasure of training with Deemer since high school and have witnessed his determination, work ethic and subsequent growth as a lacrosse athlete, coach and man. Deemer will always challenge himself to improve and turn weaknesses or flaws into strengths.He continues to build on successful high school and collegiate careers as he shapes his game for the professional and international stages. I can assure he will apply this same approach when instructing the next generation of lacrosse athletes.

First Class Lacrosse is invaluable to me as a coach. I’ve noticed dramatic offensive improvements after incorporating the skills and drills that I’ve learned here into practices.

My 13 year old, Miles, took part in his second First Class Lacrosse clinic last weekend in Greensboro. He participated in an offensive clinic last year with Deemer and defense this go around with Matt.  Both times we were extremely impressed with the high amount of activity during the clinic and the high amount of quality instruction that took place. Just as striking though is how friendly and welcoming you guys are. You both represent First Class Lacrosse and yourselves in the best possible way. As a parent, I sincerely appreciate you guys as coaches and role models for Miles. Keep up the great work!

Deemer Class and FCL have been and continues to be  instrumental for Aidan in multiple fashions. We were introduced to Deemer amid the Covid pandemic and virtually, yet Deemer has treated Aidan as if they have known each other for years. We still haven’t connected in person due to obvious reasons, yet Deemer has taken Aidan’s game to another level. Deemer and FCL have broken down Aidan’s technique over previous video sent, and live video chat sessions frame by frame. Aidan then can go outside in the yard and immediately put the feedback and adjustments in his game. Deemer has a keen eye for exactly what a player needs to fine tune technique to maximize velocity and accuracy!

Having access to a superstar Duke and PLL lacrosse athlete, as well as others, who respond immediately and often, has been so refreshing and simply awesome!

With two boys who are passionate about the game, The Balsamo Family has greatly benefited from FCL!  Deemer connected with my oldest  and a relationship developed over the years.  Charles and John have grown as players and enhanced their skillsets by participating in private/semi-private FCL training, larger FCL group workouts and NetReturn events.  Additionally, both boys have studied FCL Online and enjoyed virtual lacrosse learning and development through film-study, as well.  Deemer has been a great coach, mentor and friend; and he has an excellent group of elite coaches on the FCL team!
