Saint Joseph Regional High School Director of Athletics Tony Karcich announced the hire of Dale Weingarten as the new head coach of the Green Knights' lacrosse program.
"Coach Weingarten is a welcome addition to our team, bringing a wealth of experience and past success in this area, said Karcich. “I’ve been pleased early on with his organization and enthusiasm and look forward to the growth our lacrosse program under his leadership."
Weingarten is currently the General Manager of New Jersey Home Field Advantage, a premier indoor multi-sports facility in Bergen County, and the Director of the New Jersey Lacrosse Academy. In those roles, he has played an integral role in bringing lacrosse to its present level of prominence on the Bergen County scholastic scene. Along the way, Weingarten has helped nurture a generation of youth and high school lacrosse players as coach and clinician, including serving as an assistant coach at Bergen Catholic from 2009-2016.
"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to coach at Saint Joe’s,” stated Weingarten. “There is a lot of positive energy on the Montvale campus thanks to a rise in enrollment and recent successes on the field, including football’s 2016 state championship. Saint Joseph Regional is now an option for area lacrosse players to bring their game to the next level."
With over 35 years of experience, Dale’s vision is to guide and develop every player through following the proven principles of sportsmanship, integrity, accountability and team play.
Originally from the lacrosse-hotbed of Long Island, Weingarten played at Brentwood (NY) High School under the late Hall of Fame coach Bob Hoppey before excelling as a four-year starter at Rutgers University. After college, he continued his career as an All-Star in the Central Atlantic Lacrosse League.
Weingarten lives in Allendale with his wife Cheryl and their two sons Trevor and Dale Jr., a freshman at Bryant University and a sophomore at Richmond University, respectively.
