University of Maryland (2003-2006)
"My two sons both played for one of the top high school lacrosse programs in the country, as well went on to have very successful Division 1 college lacrosse careers. Both played and trained under Coach MacFarlane from an early age, and I can say unequivocally that much of their success can be attributed to his training, guidance, mentoring and coaching. Coach MacFarlane’s mentorship as well as his relentless pursuit of excellence, both physically and mentally, prepared my sons for their college careers. I could not give him a stronger endorsement."
“Todd always has a Passion for the sport and more importantly a Passion to see his athletes achieve their Best”
“Coach MacFarlane got me in the best shape both physically and mentally over the course of my playing career. So much of my success throughout high school and college can be directly attributed to Coach Mac.”
“My son is 20 years old and a college sophomore playing lacrosse for Dickinson College. My son began playing lacrosse when he was 7 years old and as soon as he was old enough to join a travel team (which was in 5th grade) we did so. When he was in 6th grade, we changed teams and had the very good fortune of being connected with Coach Todd MacFarlane. That summer with Coach Todd, to this day, is still a pivotal time in my son's coaching life as well as our family's life. Coach Todd came at a time when my son's confidence had been destroyed by the previous coach of that team. Coach Todd saw something in my son and was able to resurrect his confidence along with helping my son build his lacrosse skills and IQ”. Although that was the 1st and only time my son was directly coached by Coach Todd, our family stayed in contact with him throughout the years. He would later serve as a support and resource during my sons recruiting time in high school and ultimately served as a model for the type of coach, we wanted for our son at the college level. To this day he remains in contact with my son and with our family. I will forever say how he is one of the top 2 coaches that my son has ever had in the over 17 years my son has been playing sports. Whether it's to build your lacrosse skill level, need direction during the recruiting process or simply to have his influence on how to not only be a great lacrosse player but more importantly a good man, Coach Todd is beyond words. Our family feels grateful and blessed to be able to not only call him coach but friend.”
"Coach MacFarlane was my lacrosse coach between my junior and senior years in HS but has consistently acted in a much greater capacity as a role model, mentor, and confidant. While I was in HS, Coach MacFarlane assisted with skills, strength and conditioning, college recruitment, and most importantly, development as a man. Coach MacFarlane has a vast network of lacrosse and non-lacrosse relationships that he was willing to leverage for my benefit. As a college student, I left my school after my freshmen year, and with a large amount of help from Coach MacFarlane, was able to transfer to a top institution. As an adult, Coach MacFarlane still provides advice and friendship to me, and has always been a strong support system that I could rely on. I could not recommend anyone more than Coach MacFarlane. "
"Coach MacFarlane is a memorable figure from my high school years. We all are able to look back and know that we wrung the towel dry every day because he was pushing us to our limit. Coach MacFarlane leads with a fundamentals-first coaching style and builds you from the ground up. Any player/team that he coaches will have the core skills that college coaches are looking for."
“My relationship with Coach Todd started during my freshman year at Malvern. Todd came in as a do it all guy. Leading our workouts, skills sessions, coaching the faceoff guys, and being the best overall energy guy, you could ask for. Todd's lacrosse resume and coaching record speak for itself, but where you will see the true value in working with coach Todd is in his effort and care for his players. Personally, throughout my years with Toddy, he pushed me to become a harder worker, better player, and better man. There is no better man to put your trust in to help develop your son or daughter. With any luck, you'll come out of your time with a lifelong friend and mentor in Coach Todd.”
