Assistant Coach – Heather O’Neill

Heather Chase O’Neill has served on several boards in her local community of Sarasota, Florida, and is a co-founder of the World Lacrosse Foundation.  Heather joined the Riverview Rams Varsity Girls Lacrosse program in 2017.

Heather played at Division One Syracuse University and was selected as an All-American Field Hockey Team. She earned a degree in Education and soon after taught at St.Paul’s School for Boys outside Baltimore, Maryland. In addition she coached field hockey and basketball for several years before taking off and starting motherhood.

Growing up in South Jersey, Heather consumed every sport made available to her but her school did not offer lacrosse at the time. She would have loved to play. She feels fortunate that her son lives where he has the opportunity to play this amazing sport filled with history, unique culture, and great community. She is committed to helping it grow everywhere.

Heather’s mission is to spread and share the sport of lacrosse.
