Head Coach – Jason Klimczak

The 2017-2018 season will be the 4th season for Coach Klimczak at Thomas Jefferson High School. After being the head JV Coach at Highlands Ranch High School for 6 years Coach Klimczak was given the reigns to restart a TJ program that had not had a their own lacrosse team for over 10 years.  He has spent the first few seasons building a family culture with the team and that has led to great success on and off the field. Coach Klimczak has also won the Denver Public Schools lacrosse coach of the year awards for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. When he’s not coaching, Coach Klimczak likes to spend time with his wife Christina and family, watching movies, and playing video games.
