Meet 2023-2024 Worcester Rail Dawgs 2015 Select co-head coaches Ryan McGrail (middle) and Matt Lavallee (right) pictured with Director of Hockey Bobby Butler.
Coach Lavallee is the current head coach of Mite Orange in our U8 program. He has been coaching in the program since Mosquitos/Learn to Play. He was in the lead role for Mite Dev in 2021-2022 and the lead role for Mites this season. He is excited to help the kids to continue to love and learn the game while having the best sportsmanship possible and improving every week.
Coach McGrail is coming over from the Junior Crusaders where he is an assistant coach in the U8 cross ice program. He has helped run LTP and LTS with FMC for over 5 years. He played both Hockey and Lacrosse at Salve Regina. Ryan is a firm believer that if you have knowledge you should pass it on. Playing sports as a young student athlete not only helps build character and confidence but gives a sense of accomplishment. He hopes to continue to grow the student athletes within the Railers family and create a rich hockey learning environment on and off the ice through consistency, dedication, hard work, and sportsmanship.
