The University of Maryland Men’s Lacrosse team is gunning for the number one spot. They’ve recently started doing workouts associated with The Program. The Program develops student athletes and corporate managers to reach their highest athletic and leadership potential, respectively. Their team is comprised of collegiate and professional athletes, academic and corporate leaders and military special-operations warriors.
The Founder and CEO, Eric Kapitulik, played lacrosse at Navy. Kapitulik has performed The Program at Navy, plus numerous other teams at all levels. Head Coach Tillman at UMD was a coach at Navy when Kapitulik helped out the Midshipmen.
Eric Kapitulik is an accomplished athlete himself. He has finished the Iron Man Triathlons. He has summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. McKinley, Mt. Aconcagua and Mt. Elbrus, four of the 7 Summits (the highest peaks on the seven continents). He recently returned from Northern Pakistan and an American led expedition to Nanga Parbat, also known as “The Killer Mountain,” the 9th tallest mountain in the world.
Kapitulik has also been extensively involved with the Force Reconnaissance Scholarship Fund, helping to raise over $125,000 for the children of six Marines who died in a helicopter crash while serving under his command.
