My name is Ken Brubaker a.k.a Coach B. I am a full time lacrosse coach and the founder of 313 Lacrosse. I am a perpetual student of the game and have deep respect for its history and culture. Coaching the game of lacrosse is my passion. I started 313 with one travel team in the summer of 2005. My company is home grown and community based, built one day at a time. I have committed a monumental amount of time and energy to make it work. Fifteen years later, 313 has grown into a full time, nationally recognized Lacrosse Specialties Company.
I am extremely proud of the fact that I have exposed hundreds of players to the nations "hotbeds" of lacrosse. I have shown them great competition, top notch instructors and training unlike most had ever seen. My original mission still holds true today. I offer great travel teams, off-season training and events for my players and their families. My only promise to my players is that they will noticeably improve, have many great experiences and get collegiate level exposure. READ MORE
