Coach Archbell

The Ultimate Lacrosse Experience

Lacrosse Masters and Bowdoin College Head Coach, Jason Archbell are pleased to offer a small series of ground-breaking lacrosse camps. Like all Lacrosse Masters camps, Coach Archbell directed camps will be what we call "micro-camps". These camps will be limited to only 23 total players per graduation year. Our mission with each camp is to provide the world's best instruction and combine it with unprecedented exposure. No other camp in the world provides this type of close interaction and experience for a player. Nowhere will you find a camp which limits participants to a small number and provides exposure to the nation's best college coaches. Coach Archbell will direct these camps from start to finish – he will construct the curriculum and provide all coaching and instruction for the duration of the camp.

Meet Your Coach

In June of 2012, Jason Archbell was named head coach of the Bowdoin men's lacrosse program. In first year at the helm, Archbell led the Polar Bears to an 8-7 campaign and fifth-place finish in the NESCAC.

Most recently an assistant coach at the University of Pennsylvania, Archbell became the seventh coach in the history of the Polar Bear men's lacrosse team and just the third since 1970. He assumed the helm from 22-year head coach Tom McCabe, who retired following the 2012 campaign.

Archbell spent the previous two seasons as an assistant at Penn, where he served as a defensive assistant and recruiting coordinator. The Quakers enjoyed one of their finest seasons in 2011, posting an 8-7 mark and reaching the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006. In 2012 Penn played one of the most difficult schedules in Division I and, despite a losing record, earned wins versus ranked North Carolina and Harvard.

He comes to Bowdoin with extensive Division III experience. A 2002 graduate of Hampden-Sydney, his coaching resume includes stops at Washington & Lee, Denison, Kenyon and Virginia Wesleyan.

Archbell arrived at Penn from Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Va., where he spent two years as the Generals' assistant coach and defensive coordinator. During his time at W&L, the Generals went 27-10 overall and won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) championship in 2009.

As the defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator at Denison University in 2008, Archbell helped the Big Red to a 14-3 record behind a defense that allowed a nation-low 5.34 goals per game. As coach of the goalies, he oversaw goalkeeper Alex Baruch who was the national Division III Goalie of the Year. Archbell also spent two years as the defensive coordinator at Kenyon College, helping the Lords to a 23-6 record during that time and a spot in the 2006 NCAA Division III Championship. Archbell got his coaching start at Virginia Wesleyan College, where he spent three seasons as a defensive coordinator.

Archbell played his college lacrosse at Hampden-Sydney College, captaining the squad his senior year. The Tigers made three NCAA Championship appearances and won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) once during his career. Archbell was a two-time All-ODAC defenseman and earned honorable mention All-America as a senior.
