Coach Costello is owner and operator of LaxChix Lacrosse. She is the LaxChik and enjoys teaching the fundamentals of the game to girls of all ages. She is currently the Head Varsity Coach at Gulf Breeze High School. Carlee is from the Philadelphia area, Media, PA Everybody’s Hometown. She played Division 1 Field Hockey at The Ohio State University as well as club lacrosse. (She was recruited to play Lacrosse as well as Field Hockey elsewhere but fell in love with OSU and good thing! She later met and married fellow Varsity Athlete Joe Costello. )
Lacrosse was added at OSU in 1998 and Coach attends OSU camps and is an avid fan. Proud to be a Buckeye she can often be heard saying GO BUCKS!
CC started Team LaxChix in 2013 at the suggestion of Laura Pattison, to have girls be able to play local clubs after the Varsity High School has ended. Team LaxChix quickly took on a life of its own and is currently the only girls club team on the Panhandle of Florida. Coach Costello hopes Team LaxChix can enable girls to be better players as well as better people, “Think Globally, Act Locally” is her motto and is currently working on bringing the Lax experience to girls and boys in high risk communities. Hatched Lacrosse programming has lacrosse for your wee laxers and does clinics at area schools for all ages. www.hatchedlacrosse.org
