ABOUT

Training beginners to All-Americans!

With a staff made up of MSHSL coaches, and NCAA/MCLA players, our training session have proven over the years to be an outstanding "off season" program, or "Training Season" as we call it! Athletes have fun, and are coached through progressive practice plans. Our staff will run drills used in college/HS practices that maximize repetition, skill development, and strength and fitness. The speed of pace doesn't rest as we are able to build in our dynamic coaching points through each drill or fitness element so the athlete can learn as they go with proper instruction.

COACHING PHILOSOPHY

"We strive to push players out of their "Comfort Zone". Instill a sense of confidence in challenging scenarios."

  • We expose the players to a faster, more competitive game against talented and driven opponents.
  • ​Geared towards proper mechanics, but also creativity in gameplay
  • In practice and training we focus on max rep drills, skill/technique breakdowns, and decision making opportunities in game play scenarios.
  • Our players are not role players, they are leaders.
  • In a game setting this translates to a more confident, skilled, responsible player.
  • Positive motivation with development = Fun

Registration covers field rental, equipment and instruction. Athletes are responsible for bring and wearing all certified protective equipment to be worn at all times.
