Andrew Kirkaldy (Coach Kirks) joined the 3d lacrosse team full-time in March 2014. Before joining full-time Andrew was involved with 3d lacrosse throughout the New England area in developing players in box/field lacrosse from the youth to high school level. Andrew has recently been promoted from Manager to Senior Manager in Tri-State.

Andrew is originally from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. He played his minor lacrosse in the Red Deer system before graduating to the Calgary Jr. A Raiders. Andrew played four seasons with the Raiders and in 2005 he competed for Canada's National box championship, The Minto Cup. Following the Minto Cup Andrew was drafted in the 5th round 51st overall by the Calgary Roughnecks of the National Lacrosse League.

Instead of competing in the NLL, Andrew followed his dream to play NCAA lacrosse. Andrew played with the Gordon College Fighting Scots from 2006-2010. During his time at Gordon he was named Rookie of the year in the Commonwealth Coast Conference, was player of the week numerous times, was the teams leading scorer two out of the four years, served as team captain and made the all-conference team in all four years. While at Gordon, Andrew also played with the Nanaimo Sr. A Timberman of the Western Lacrosse Association for two years and in 2009 he was named team "unsung hero" by his teammates. Andrew also played for the Boston Rockhoppers of the North American Lacrosse League and was the leagues third leading scorer.

After his playing days Andrew coached for Gordon college for a year. He then took his first head coaching position at Haverhill High School were he set records with the teams best overall record (13-6) and most all-stars selected.

After Haverhill he moved to Connecticut and coached at Fairfield Prep where he helped the Jesuits win the 2013 class L state championship.

Not Just In the Classroom

What makes Trinity-Pawling unique? The Effort System is at the heart of everything we do.

The Pride

At Trinity-Pawling, every boy is a three-season athlete.  Whether he is learning the basics or has been excelling for years, he is part of the School's century-old athletic tradition.  T-P competes in the Founders' League, a highly competitive arena showcasing some of the nation's best prep school talent. T-P offers 13 interscholastic sports with 30 teams.

We're Seriously Creative

The Arts are an integral part of every Trinity-Pawling student's education. Whether they wish to develop existing talents or experiment with an entirely new form of expression, each student will have at least one year of music, theater, visual art or art history.

Welcome!

As a parent or guardian of a Trinity-Pawling student, you are a welcome member of the community. Your involvement through event attendance, participation in the Parents' Association, or simply staying connected is appreciated.

This could be you!

Over 100 years ago, Frederick Luther Gamage, Trinity-Pawling's Founding Headmaster, said, "Whether a boy succeeds or fails in the first instance at everything he tries is irrelevant.  The only boy who truly fails is the boy who fails to try."  Today, a century later, 315 boys live learn and grow together in an environment that fosters commitment, effort and character across the board.
