Mike Harrington, Director of Athletics at Farmingdale State, is pleased to announce that Sean Chamberlain has been named the Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach at Farmingdale State.
Chamberlain brings a new dynamic to the team with a wealth of knowledge around both the National and Long Island lacrosse circuit. Most notably, he serves on the Board of Directors for Team 91 Lacrosse. Team 91 is one of the largest select club programs on the East Coast, serving over 1,000 boys and girls annually.
In addition to 91, he is the founder and event director of the Long Island LaxFest, which began in 2008, and continues as one of the largest summer lacrosse tournaments in the United States. The LI LaxFest attracts over 400 teams annually and has expanded as a recruiting resource with over 130 men’s and women’s college coaches in attendance annually from all NCAA Divisions.
Since June 2010, Sean has been the head coach of the Polish National Lacrosse Team during their appearances in both the 2010 (Manchester, UK) and 2014 (Denver, CO) FIL World Championships. In both FIL Championships, the team has finished in the top half of competition.
During his playing career, Chamberlain was an attackman at Stony Brook from 2004-2007. Sean also served as team captain during his senior year. A native of Holbrook, NY, he played his high school career at Indian Hills High School in Cincinnati, OH. During his senior year, while leading the Braves to a State Championship, he led the state in points (50 goals & 90 assists), earning him All-Ohio accolades, as well as being named a US Lacrosse High School All-American.
Chamberlain graduated from Stony Brook University in May 2007 and currently resides in Port Jefferson.
He replaces Tim Tuttle who coached the team for seven seasons.
