Philosophy

Purpose
Our focus is to teach young lacrosse players the essential fundamentals of the game through a variety of drills and exercises. It is our belief that player development occurs through personalized instruction, maximum repetition and exposure to game-like situations. Our goal is to have each participant enjoy himself, work hard, improve his skills, and have a better understanding of the game of lacrosse.

Philosophy
• Develop young and determined lacrosse players through drills and exercises that are used today at the high school and collegiate levels so that each player is prepared to compete at a demanding level.

• Provide young and determined lacrosse players an environment that emphasizes a commitment to working hard, to having fun, and to demonstrating good sportsmanship.

• Teach young and determined lacrosse players core values that are relevant to the game of lacrosse and to the game of life. Our coaches are not about gimmicks or wasting your son’s time; rather, we are committed to improving your son’s lacrosse skills and cultivating his competitive spirit.

Curriculum
As former division one athletes, Dan and Mike Keating will incorporate a variety of exercises and drills that they have learned from the very best collegiate lacrosse coaches in order to strengthen players’ weaknesses and to broaden their set of skills.

The instruction will cover a wide range of the game’s most fundamental components:

• Throwing and catching movements

• Offensive principles – different types of dodging, different types of shooting, feeding to an open player, picks, team offense

• Small-sided games

• Transition and unsettled situations – 4v3, 3v2, 2v1

• Defense principles – learning how to defend the 1v1, footwork, angle play, understanding team defense, stick work for long poles

• Goalie play

• Face-offs

• Agility footwork exercises relevant to the movements of the game

Please make sure that your son is properly equipped (helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouth guard, stick, cleats). The coaching staff will not provide any equipment.
