We began as a training program in 2013 when we realized that lacrosse players needed more opportunity to hone individual skills in addition to their travel and town teams. We started offering small group training to committed players throughout the year and quickly realized the demand and effectiveness of our approach. As our training program grew, the kids in training wanted an opportunity to compete together and showcase their skills, and Team36 was born. We approach lacrosse development in three areas:
INDIVIDUAL TRAINING – In order to execute the team systems we run at Team36 or on a High School/College team, players must have strong fundamental skill. The problem is, team practices do not always provide enough opportunity to do so. There are many ways to build individual skill, but, our small group training at 36 Lacrosse and access to our private training facility is the best and most effective way to build skills in a structured, organized and productive way. Team36 players get exclusive access to our 5000SF indoor turf facility.
TEAM/ON-FIELD PRACTICE –We use on-field practices to work on situational concepts and team systems. Players will get to practice high energy drills in both small sided situations and full field situations. This allows us to teach the game effectively, develop “lax IQ” and make sure players are getting reps/experience in these situations.
COMPETITION – Of course, playing the game of lacrosse is third piece of development. Getting the game experience playing in real live situations helps players learn to perform under pressure and work as a team to accomplish a common goal. Having an opportunity to compete against good teams from across the region/nation while applying the skills learned in training and practice is essential to “putting it all together.”
