About the Coach

Blake Kim (first season)

Blake Kim, boys' lacrosse coachKim brings more than 30 years of lacrosse experience - as a player and coach to Menlo. He served as head coach for two seasons at Sacred Heart Prep, and directed the Gators to a 29-9 record in 2011 and 2012 before leaving to focus on his full-time job at a lacrosse manufacturing company in Santa Cruz County. In 2011, he was named the U.S. Lacrosse High School Coach of the Year for Northern California. He has been coaching with Firehawks Lacrosse in various capacities - as a head coach or assistant coach - since 2010. His international experience spans from his playing days to the present. He was a member of the Korean National Lacrosse team at the World Championships in 2002, and has a coached at numerous camps and clinics worldwide. Kim was inducted into the University at Albany (New York) Athletic Hall of Fame where he was a team captain as a senior. Kim holds his bachelors in Biological Sciences from University of Albany and his masters in Medical and Science Illustration from Johns Hopkins.

“My long-term goal is to build a successful program that allows Menlo student-athletes to grow into young men who both value and exhibit important personal traits of honesty & integrity, toughness & perseverance, and respect & gratitude for the opportunity to enjoy the great game of lacrosse. I strongly believe that developing these traits will allow them to lead successful lives away from the lacrosse field in whatever they may pursue as young adults.”
