Men's Field Coaches

Paul Rai - Technical Director/Men's Coaching Director/ Coach

Paul is passionate about lacrosse and has introduced hundreds of athletes to the game.  In his role as the Director, Vimy Lacrosse (Vimy Ridge Academy, Edmonton, AB),  Paul created a unique development model for junior and senior high student-athletes interested in combining academics with field and box lacrosse development within the Edmonton Public School Board. Under Paul’s direction, Vimy Lacrosse’s growth as a program exceeded 1000% growth in 11 years.

Paul is an NCCP-certified coach clinician for both men’s and women’s field lacrosse.

Paul’s lacrosse experience started over 30 years ago with the Gold Bar Miners, which transformed into today’s Edmonton Miners Club. He played his minor lacrosse with Gold Bar Miners and traveled to many national championships with the organization. As an adult, he played Senior lacrosse with the Miners, and then with the Edmonton Outlaws where he was the player/coach of the 2002 Presidents Cup National Champions.

Paul attended Dartmouth College (DI NCAA) and played four years of Division I hockey for the Big Green. His experience at Dartmouth taught him about the skills required to be a successful student-athlete; information he graciously shares with athletes interested in pursuing lacrosse in college.
