PHILADELPHIA – The HEADstrong Lacrosse Club has announced that Matt Auletti has been named the new General Manager of the South Jersey Boys program, bringing a wealth of lacrosse experience to the role.
“I’m incredibly honored to be stepping into this role with the HEADstrong organization and thankful for the opportunity,” Auletti said. “I look forward to continuing to build upon the foundation that has been set in South Jersey and making our athletes better players, teammates and individuals both on and off the field.”
A native of Basking Ridge, New Jersey, Auletti spent four years as a member of the Eastern University men’s lacrosse team where he won a MAC Freedom Championship in 2018.

We’re proud to be able to hire from within the HEADstrong family and can’t wait to see the positive impact he has on the club and the local lacrosse community.”
