Dave Mitchell

Coach Dave Mitchell is the President and Co-Owner of Next Level Lacrosse.  Dave is fortunate to have outstanding teachers, coaches, and role models who helped shape his life in a very positive way.  Inspired by those relationships and by the transformational power of teaching and sports, Dave aspired to be a life-long coach at an early age.

While in high school, Coach Dave was class president, a three-sport athlete, and a two-time captain for the varsity lacrosse team.  He went on to attend Loyola University, where he was offered and accepted the position of JV Head Coach for The Friends School in Baltimore.
After graduating Loyola University magna cum laude, Dave went back to his alma mater, The Heights School, to serve as 6th grade homeroom teacher and to pursue his love of coaching.  Dave was the Head Varsity Coach for the Cavaliers for 12 seasons.  During that time the team earned a 101-65 record, including two Metro Independent Lacrosse League Championships.  Dave was awarded US Lacrosse “Coach of the Year” in 2011, 2013, 2017, and 2018.  In June of 2021, Dave became the Head Varsity Coach for DeMatha Catholic High School.  Dave served as DeMatha’s Head Varsity Coach for three seasons, advancing to the WCAC semifinal game each year.
After four years as a homeroom teacher, Coach Dave turned to the club lacrosse world to pursue coaching full time.  He became General Manager of Next Level Lacrosse in 2014, and then President in 2016.  Since that time, Next Level has experienced significant growth in all areas, and is now recognized as one of the most competitive club programs in the country.
