SixFifty Lacrosse is directed by former Johns Hopkins University attackman and current Menlo-Atherton High School offensive coordinator, Matt Bond. Matt is also the director of Menlo-Atherton “Grizzlies” Youth Lacrosse & has coached at the youth and high school levels in Maryland, Connecticut, England, and Southern & Northern California since 1995. His Menlo-Atherton HS squads are two-time CCS SCVAL Champions (2012 & 2013).
Like student-athletes in the Bay Area, Matt did not grow up in the lacrosse hotbeds of the Northeast and is familiar with the struggles of pursuing the dream of playing at the collegiate level. In 1991, Matt was just the third high school lacrosse player out of Florida to be recruited and play at an NCAA Division 1 school. In 1994, Matt’s brother, Adam, became the fourth high school player from Florida to go D1 and joined Matt as an attackman for the Blue Jays. Because of this, Coach Bond has been passionate over the past 18 years of working with young people about helping them pursue their athletic and personal dreams with hard work, integrity, and humility in reaching for their highest potential in all aspects of life.
Prior to launching SixFifty, Matt served for 11 years as the Area Director for Young Life in New Canaan, CT and Newport Beach, CA and then served for 6 years in pastoral leadership positions at two of the largest churches on the west coast, Mariners Church in Irvine and Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. Matt’s wife Katie is a clinical psychologist in private practice specializing in childhood and adolescent development.
