About North Coast STORM
You are being coached by some of the best.
We apply the same three principles to the STORM system that we apply to ourselves, and our own family: Be a contributor; Build Confidence; have FUN! Check the pedigrees of Storm coaches and you’ll find top-ranked CIF High School Coaches, CIF Championship Coaches, former Division I players, committed parents, collegiate captains from all levels, US Lacrosse All-Americans, even a WDIA National Championship MVP. But pedigree alone only goes so far. What they are most excited about is not only teaching great lacrosse, but also the leadership, teamwork, strength and confidence you need for a lifetime.
Suzanne Campaigne | Founder and League Director
North Coast STORM began with a single Carlsbad team and just fourteen girls.
Today, the program has evolved into North County’s largest and fastest growing program, including kids throughout North Coast San Diego.
From the beginning, the STORM mission has been to empower youth to succeed. North Coast STORM in uniquely capable to combine top-tier skills, and the confidence and personal strength to be successful anywhere in life. We are big believers in being proactively involved in enhancing the community where we live.
From our neighborhood, to our church and schools, we have always played a hands-on role in not only the development of our own children’s lives, but also those around us. Lacrosse is our way of doing that. We apply the same three principles to the STORM that we apply to ourselves and our own family: Be a Contributor; Build Confidence; have FUN!
Founder and League Director
Suzanne founded North Coast Storm with her husband, Dann, and serves as Program Director and Lead Coach. She was deeply ingrained in the early development of lacrosse in San Diego after wrapping up her senior year at Cal Poly SLO where she led her team to a National Championship and was honored as a US Lacrosse All-American and MVP of the USLIA National Championships. Suzanne went on to coach Poway High School to multiple CIF Championships and started the Santa Fe Christian (her alma-mater) program from scratch, before shifting to focus solely to the North Coast STORM.
A gifted mentor and teacher, Suzanne is sought-after for guidance by start-up programs, coaches, and families making college and high-school life-choices. Former players of hers have gone on to play collegiate lacrosse at ALL levels, and many have returned to coach and mentor current STORM members. She’s an awesome wife and the mother of three.
Co-Founder and Board Member
In 2009 Dann and Suzanne looked at the frantic pace of youth sports and said, “We could do this differently.” They methodically developed a program with a single guiding mantra: Do what’s in the best interest of the children and their families. Success will follow.
An accomplished athlete and leader, Dann has the unique strength of breaking things down to their simplest form to build cohesive teams and programs. Fully committed to his family, community, and career with Abbott, Dann plays an active role in program development, and mentoring coaches and parent volunteers.
