James represents English Lacrosse at Under 19 level and is hoping to be selected for the World Championships in Vancouver 2016. Following this, James hopes to be selected for the Senior World Championships in Manchester 2018. As a single parent following a tragic accident to their father in the workplace in 2012, their family works tirelessly to provide every opportunity for him to reach this goal. Not only a player, James has a keen interest in giving back to the sport, as a Level 2 qualified coach at only 17, he spends his time outside of training coaching within mainstream and SEN schools to encourage and inspire others to take part in Lacrosse.
