Learn to Play
Mastering the fundamentals is the most important aspect of developing a new skill! We dedicate the beginning of each practice to sound fundamental lacrosse development achieved by drills that emphasize proper throwing, catching, communication, and ground balls. The second part of practice is geared towards reinforcing and implementing the fundamentals learned by playing games and scrimmages.
