2012-13 Winter Program @ Episcopal Academy

Program in

Overview

We believe that youth lacrosse players spend so much time playing full-field games that they often neglect the fundamental skills necessary for future success at the high school and college levels.

Through Innovative Drills, Progressive Skill Work and Trashcan Lacrosse, our Winter Program at Episcopal Academy focuses on the lacrosse fundamentals. This is an 8-week program in which players will be working on stick skills, shooting, dodging, defensive footwork, and goalie positioning. In addition to a strong emphasis on skill development, players will be working on the 2 v 1 situation which we believe is one of the crucial skills of lacrosse. We also put the FUN in fundamentals with Trashcan Lacrosse tournaments for every age level!

Spend the Winter with us focusing on the fundamentals and you’ll be amazed at the difference in your game next Spring!

Program Schedule

11:30am - 1:00pm / 2nd & 3rd graders-  Register

This program will focus heavily on developing good stick skills. Wall Ball and partner passing progression will help the players understand the importance of stick skills. In addition to this focus on stick skills, players will be learning the fundamentals of shooting which means young goalies will see lots of shots. Of course we will be playing a ton of Trashcan Lacrosse as well.

1:00pm - 2:30pm / 4th & 5th graders-  Register

The program will continue to focus on stick skills and shooting but players will also start learning dodging and defensive footwork. Players will not only play a lot of Trashcan Lacrosse but will also participate in progressive drills to start developing their skills in controlled situations that can be found in any high school lacrosse game!

2:30pm - 4:00pm / 6th, 7th & 8th graders- Register

This program is designed for the player who desires to take his game to the next level. The winter program focuses on developing core lacrosse skills, lacrosse IQ, recognition skills,  and learning to execute at a higher level.  This can be accomplished through up temp transition drills, box lacrosse training, and playing box lacrosse games this winter.   This winter there will be a heavy emphasis on box lacrosse skill training and box lacrosse games.  Players need to understand that this is an intense 90 minute practice for players who want to develop more advanced skills.  The innovative curriculum is one part of the equation.  The passionate and knowledgeable coaching staff and top notch facility is the other part of the equation.  Together we will achieve our goals.

This program will be held in the spacious Episcopal Academy Fieldhouse. This is the ONLY indoor facility centrally located in the area with more than 3 full basketball courts of space!
