Coach Tim Roy was hired this year to become the head coach of the Oratory Prep lacrosse program. During this interview, we are able to learn some insight about Coach Roy’s previous experiences before joining our Oratory family.



What do you think of Oratory so far?

I have only had limited contact thus far but everyone has been very nice and welcoming.


What college did you attend?

During the military, I started classes with the University of Phoenix due to the ease of access. Once I got out I finished the degree with them as well. I am currently getting my masters from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.


List five adjectives that describe yourself.

Loyal, fair, understanding, hardworking and dedicated.


When and why did you decide to become a coach?

I started coaching almost 15 years ago to share the passion I had for lacrosse. That passion has only grown as lacrosse has become a larger part of my life.


What do you like most about lacrosse?

It’s a small community filled with amazing people.


Where did you coach before Oratory?

I started at Delaware Valley, Ramapo, Montgomery, and St. Peter’s Prep


What sports (if any) did you play in high school and/or college.

I tried football briefly in high school but it did not take. So it’s only been lacrosse.


What expectations do you have for your players?

I expect that the players work hard and are dedicated to the goals we set for the program.


Do you have a coaching philosophy, if so what is yours?

Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country and with that comes greater opportunities to coach more players. I believe that lacrosse is a vehicle that enables players to achieve things they could not do on their own. It isn’t always about going to play for a D1 program or the best colleges, it can be small goals set by the individual player. It has personally helped my family get to some incredible places in life.


What expectations do you have for this upcoming season?

I am excited about the upcoming season. As with every place I have coached at, there will be some growing pains. I expect that we will continue the momentum created over the last few years and keep heading a positive direction.
