U13 West Team Training is scheduled at the True Lacrosse Elmhurst Facility for TBD from TBD
Team Training brings together individual teams to work on skills and drills. The focus of team training is to work on high reps in fundamental skills such as passing, catching, and shooting. In team training, coaches help players hone their mechanics to provide them with a firm foundation on which to develop their skills. The key to this is repetition so each skill becomes fluid and second nature to the players.
True Lacrosse will be offering a free Goalie and Faceoff clinic for all True Lacrosse players from 6:00-8:00PM on the 1st Friday of every month at our Elmhurst location.
True Academy is an additional training opportunity for youth and high school players to work on skills and drills. All youth players work together in one group, and all high school players work together in another. The focus of the Academy is to work on drills specifically designed for larger groups. These drills include fast breaks, 4 v. 4, number drill, Army ground balls, etc. True Academy sessions are held at regular practice locations which provides ample space for our large groups to do more full field drills, giving players a sense of how each drill will translate in a real game situation.
True University is a training opportunity for players who wish to work one-on-one with a professional coach. A player can request to work on a specific skill or mechanic of the game in which he or she is struggling. The session is then designed to provide detailed, focused instruction to help the player understand and improve that particular skill.
