I hope that everyone has had a good summer. The Fall League is starting up and that means it is time for Fall Developmental as well.
Our schedule for this year will be Sundays from 1:30 to 3:00 at the Regional Training Center, next to the VA Beach Sportsplex. Our first day will be 09/15 and our last day will be 10/20 barring any rescheduling of makeups.
The structure of our program is based upon a growing understanding of the fundamental aspect of the game of lacrosse and building upon those fundamentals continuously. On Sundays, we will focus on individual skill and how to build those fundamentals to prepare your player for a team. Additionally, included in the Dev program is the ability to play in our Fall League as a way to help develop the team play aspect of the game as well. You have probably already received emails from some of the coaches about games coming this Wednesday. These games are not mandatory, and this first week I would recommend skipping until we have had a Dev session.
You will need full gear including a helmet, gloves, elbow pads, chest protector, boys lacrosse stick, and a mouth guard. I would also recommend an athletic protector. The first week of Dev we will have minimal contact, but lacrosse is a full contact sport, and we will have full contact in Dev.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me and I will do my best to answer. I do work full time so please forgive me if I do not get back to you immediately. I look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday for our first day!
