From January 6-8, 2017, some of the biggest names and brightest minds in coaching will descend upon Boca Raton, Florida for the inaugural Florida Lacrosse Coaches Convention. The convention will be hosted by the Florida Launch of Major League Lacrosse in partnership with US Lacrosse.
With more than 20 years in human services and education, Dr. Paul Gavoni has effectively transferred research to practice through the application of evidenced-based strategies aimed at bringing out the best in children and adults. Recognized by many as an authentic leader, Paul has provided district leadership, school leadership, teachers, and staff with coaching focused on analyzing and developing behavior and performance management systems that positively impact student behavior and achievement in high poverty schools. An expert in human performance and organizational leadership, Paul has passionately and directly supported students and staff in a variety of environments such as private schools, group homes, secured facilities, day-treatment programs, alternative education facilities, and public schools. Within these settings, Paul has been fortunate enough to wear many hats including teacher, counselor, professional developer, case manager, therapist, behavior analyst, project manager, clinical coordinator, school administrator, and college professor.
Beyond his work in education and human services, Coach "Paulie Gloves," as he is known in the sporting world, is also a highly successful professional boxing and mixed martial arts coach.
