It is very important to develop a strong foundation of these skills at a young age. Basic skills taught will include cradling, scooping, throwing and catching. These essential skills will be vital as the lacrosse player develops more techniques and methods necessary for all levels of play.
Advanced skills with teammate integration will focus on footwork, running passes, quality shots, ground balls, and basic plays. This phase of training expands on the fundamentals, and prepares the lacrosse player for team play.
