Robert VanDerheyden currently teaches Soft Lacrosse © and music courses with NCC Monroe. He is a United States Air Force veteran, a small business owner, an accomplished musician & band leader, entrepreneur and an experienced instructor who derives great joy from helping others excel in sports, building their confidence levels and maturity

Coach Van has said, "Team sports are not strictly about wins and losses, but more about working together, building confidence in each other, learning and applying fundamental skills while striving to compete at the athlete's highest ability. When teaching, I prefer to break down the tasks into the simplest form, then have each student build their own style from that foundation. If the student understands the 'why,' it is much easier to put the 'how' into action."
