Coach Debbie Rebosa has been with Fusion Lacrosse since 2010.  She has helped develop the Spring and Fall Rival Recreational programs.  Originally from in Rockland County, New York, she grew up as an all around athlete and later lacrosse enthusiast. Graduating from Clarkstown South High School in 1993, she was a three–year tri–varsity athlete in field hockey, track and lacrosse. In those sports, she also earned the honors of All–Conference, All–Section, All–Region and MVP as well as various scholarships and coach's awards. Later, she attended the University of Buffalo in New York (1993–1997) and assisted in the growth, development and maintenance of the women's club program. Heavily influenced and coached by Lacrosse Hall of Famer, the late Wes Patterson of the Tuscaroran Tribe, she grew a deeper understanding of the spirit of the sport and commitment to serve the lacrosse community. During her senior year of college she was selected to play in the US Intercollegiate National Championships. Currently, she is the head coach of the Durham Academy Girls Varsity Lacrosse team as well as an entrepreneur in the real estate and development industries. She continues to play as a midfielder with the Carolina Heat Women's Lacrosse team.  Debbie currently resides in Chapel Hill.

Fall Season Key Reminders:
·        Fall is different than our traditional Spring season: Fall is an instructional season run in a clinic style format focusing on the Technical, Tactical and Game Situational Play to elevate individual skill progression and prepare players for the Spring season.  
·        Instruction will be provided by grade and skill level to maximize learning progression. (Note: RIVAL league teams are not formed in the fall).
·        All age groups will train at the same time on.
·        Fall season runs from Sept 7th-Oct 26th.
·        A standard training day will consist of the following: Conditioning, Technical and Tactical Skill Work, Game Play.  
·        The Fall program is a great program from the beginner to the advanced level player.
