Pre Try Out Training Session
The Winter Academy Training is designed to provide lacrosse instruction for girls that are in grades 5-8. Training will be held at InSports Center in Trumbull, CT, offering indoor instruction. These sessions will be focused on individual skill development - positional training, shooting, dodging, defense, goalie, team defense/offense strategies, and face-off scenarios. Our coaching staff is invested in the individual training and growth of each player. We will develop elite players in a challenging and exciting atmosphere where leadership and teamwork will be expected of all players. It is our hope that each player can carry their love of the sport with them and always strive to reach their highest potential, both on and off the field. The coaching staff will include top high school coaches, former professional players and NCAA players.
