I feel very fortunate and grateful that my son was afforded the opportunity to work with Coaches
Michael Mc Parlin (basketball & baseball 3 years) & Coach Thomas Pacia (baseball 3 years) during his four years at La Salle Academy. Both possess such love for the game and such dedication and passion in helping each student – athlete reach his full potential. In addition to developing your child’s strength and skills, they will shape his confidence and approach to the game. Coach Mc Parlin and Coach Pacia are professional, knowledgeable and passionate coaches who will ensure your child be the best athlete possible!

Coach McParlin is a person with invaluable experience in the realm of youth athletics. A star high school and collegiate athlete, himself, Coach McParlin knows what it takes to reach your athletic and personal goals. One can trust the staff of Hive Athletics with the care of their child, as the staff is comprised of master motivators, knowledgeable teachers of the game, and great people.
Coach McParlin was my basketball coach for three years at La Salle Academy, however,
I consider him much more than a coach and more of a friend. His in-depth understanding of the game helped me succeed as a player, but more importantly he taught me life lessons of perseverance, grit, and resolve. Furthermore, Coach McParlin helped develop my body as a young adult, by helping me with form and regiments to improve my speed and strength as a high-performing athlete. There are very few coaches I know of that have such a profound impact on the lives of their players as Coach McParlin has. Hive Athletics is a start-up in the youth of its tenure, but nevertheless they have compiled an experienced and talented staff which will help your child accelerate their game and develop themselves as people.

Working with Coach Mac was a positive experience from start to finish. He designed workouts for me with my specific goals in mind and made sure that those goals were met. He challenged me to become a better athlete, a harder worker and a more well rounded individual, drawing upon his unique experience to guide and motivate me. Coach Mac doesn't ask for anything that he knows you are not capable of and while challenging, he endeavors only to bring out your best self, whether it be in the gym, on the court or in life.
