HOW IT ALL STARTEDEstablished in 2002; East coast transplants, Fish and Soni Bartlett, had been coaching in Utah since early 1996, starting new clubs and programs across the state. Both coached at Jordan High School. Fish coached from 1997-2006, and Soni from 2000-2007 where she coached her teams to 4 straight High School State Championships before moving on to be the head coach at the new Westminster College Women’s program.
Both were Utah Lacrosse Association board members for over 14 years. Soni was the Executive Director of the ULA for 5 years before working at Tribal West full time. The Bartlett's currently run Utah Mamaci, a girls HS travel and developmental program with 5 teams and over 125 members. They also run a great fall girls HS seven's league. For the past 13 years, Tribe Lacrosse has run a boys and girls camp in July for players covering grades K through 12, bringing in top coaches from across the country to teach Utah’s future stars.
