At the Edge, we take pride in our athletes and enjoy recognizing their success.
Recognizing Edge Stars
Taylor has been a staple in the schedule at the training academy for the last few years. Her approach to the game of golf has been constant and rewarding. With tremendous strength gains, the distance on the ball through her swing has lengthened. Her abilities placed her in a second place finish in the State of Maryland in the Fall of 2017. She has committed her life to the pursuit of greatness and we could not be more proud of her efforts. She has made the commitment to further her education and playing golf at Christopher Newport. We are certain her future is bright and her work ethic will allow her the opportunity to shine in all that she pursues.
Finn has a unique infectious personality that leaves even the adult coaches who work with him happier as a result of his presence. We could not be more thrilled with the improvements we have seen from Finn to this point and we are looking forward to seeing him progress at a rate that only Finn can imagine! It is a real rarity that our athletes look to us for “extra work.” Finn is the exception to that. He wants to be the best Finn, Finn has to offer, at all times. A true inspiration to anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting him, we present to you our Spotlight Athlete, Finn Walsh.
Finn was brought to The Edge from his constant and never-ending desire to improve himself as a lacrosse player. Being the type of kid that everyone calls “hungry” for greatness, we welcomed him with open arms. I will be the first one to say that we love it when the kids have that certain spark that brings energy to an already energetic place.
Here is Finn’s story in a nutshell. He was in need of some confidence. Unfortunately he had experienced a few medical setbacks in the recent years that kept him a bit timid when under the pressures of physical play and full contact exposure. He had multiple surgeries that would leave most individuals questioning their continuation of play. Finn instead took this challenge head-on! His willingness to battle his way back from the mental block that was created as a result of the situation was tremendous. His ability to take all of our coaching we offered was incredible. Finn made his way back to his prior beliefs in himself and catapulted forward in his skill development and overall confidence. We were thoroughly impressed with his ability to actually find humor in pressure situations whereas before he would shy away completely.
In Their Words
Sam Bauer, Jacksonville U W Lax
As a defender for my program I am required to have great footwork, speed, and change of direction. This is my last season so I wanted to insure that I was coming into my last semester in the best shape and the fastest I have ever been. I also wanted to set an example to all the other girls on my team to what the standard should be for playing at the D1 level.Upon my return to school during our speed testing I dropped significant time in all areas of straight away running as well as agility tests

Every single time you walk into that building and stand in front of Coach Woolley you are another step closer to becoming the person and player you want to be.
Zac Davliakos, Loyola Univ.
The Edge to our family was more than just a work out facility. Two years ago we were looking for a personal trainer that could take our son to the next level in physical endurance. Not only did Coach Woolley make Zac have physical goals to achieve but mentally Coach got Zac ready for each game. There is no doubt in our minds that Coach Woolley helped Zac achieve his goal of playing Division I Lacrosse. Go Greyhounds!!
Rachel Aus, Jacksonville Unvi.
I've been at The Edge for almost 3 years now and I've changed completely. From my footwork to my stick skills and mind set I have grown immensely. Not only have I noticed it but my coaches have too. The Edge has given me the confidence that I needed to excel on the field. Going into my Junior year as a Division 1 athlete I feel prepared for what is to come thanks to Coach Woolley pushing me in the gym both mentally and physically.
Logan Pringle, BMX Rider
I want to thank Coach Woolley for believing in me, supporting and encouraging me every time I walk into The Edge. The coaches at The Edge keep me physically and mentally fit, and ready to ride!

Rachel Sindler-FROM Inside Lacrosse- Duke/UPenn/Princeton
Defense, Severn School (Md.), MD United East (2017)
Sindler’s a great, feisty little defender who has phenomenal footwork and defensive positioning. A good 1v1 defender, Sindler also stands off for her defensive work off-ball, as she remains on her players hands through the 8-meter and is quick to double on cutters moving through the arc.
