Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard. 
There are no MVPS here. Cocheco is a development program; as such, we are not all that concerned with our teams' records.  Rather, our emphasis is on ensuring players improve in measurable ways each and every season.  As players and as people.  MVP designations are traditionally bestowed according to data.  Cocheco gives recognition for contributions that can't be so concretely measured.  Our Nesman and Hitchcock awards recognize the player who works hardest at improving as a player, while Heyliger winners are recognized for being the quintessential teammate and voted on by their teams. As these character traits and habits are built over time, these acknowledgments start for players in 5th grade.  The awards are given in honor of 3 men who worked so diligently to establish the Cocheco Lacrosse program:  Don Heyliger, Greg Nesman and Larry Hitchcock.  Since these men were instrumental in the early days of Cocheco, their names are immortalized here to celebrate the best charasteristics needed in athletics.  
Coaches will discuss these concepts with their teams.  Feel free to start a conversation at home. The Dover Recreation Department holds an annual Heyliger Awards dinner.  As the season goes on, please watch out for those who go above and beyond in helping make Cocheco such a terrific program for your kids and pass your suggestions along to any of our board members.
