House Training

Why "clinic" when you can train?
 
Studying is required to become a better student; training then, is required to become a better athlete.
 
It's universally accepted "you play like you practice." If you want to play at an elite level, then you need to practice at an elite level.
 
An elite level practice requires a focus and attention on the details in an effort to achieve goals. While clinics provide some benefits, they're not the most effective way to set and achieve mastery level goals.
 
Under the leadership of Girl's Lacrosse Director Joe (Cojo) Frederick, The House of Sports Girls Lacrosse Training Academy has reestablished itself as the area's most inclusive premiere training program.
 
Our classes focus on all skill positions- Offense, Defense & Goalie and range from Basic Stick Work, Shooting & the ABCD's of Defense, to more advanced concepts of Advanced Dodging to Win the 1v1 matchup through improved athleticism & effective lacrosse movements.
 
Classes open to athletes of all skill levels from 3rd - 12th grade and offered throughout the week during after-school hours.

  • Winning the 1v1 Matchup
  • Goalie Training
  • Shooting Training
  • Defense Training

101, 301, 501

Basic Stick Skill Development

Rule changes & advancements in stick technology are helping the Girls game rapidly evolve, especially in the speed of play. Simple "dodges" by themselves are ineffective if not done with increased athleticism.

104, 304, 504

Advanced Shooting

Learning Objective:

For players with a foundation in basic shooting skills, our Advanced Shooting class focuses on increasing power/velocity and accuracy,  advanced types of shots such as Behind the Back & Twizzlers in addition to working off-ball to create scoring opportunities by catching and shooting while in motion.

Enrollment for this class requires players to have the ability to pass & catch with a degree of consistency

Defense Training

Learning Objective:

Often called "the forgotten position," our Defense class is the area's only training focused solely on teaching players how to become better Defenders through Improved Athleticism/Footwork, Stick Control/ Checking Techniques.

Players will increase their confidence to become a lock-down defender by incorporating the "ABCD's of Defense" into their technique.

106, 306, 506

Introduction to Goalkeeping

Learning Objective:

For "new to position" Goalies to teach the basics of Goalkeeping such as Stance, Save Technique & Pipe Play while developing the proper save mechanics through meaningful & specific isolation drills.

308, 508

Advanced Offensive Concepts

Learning Objective:

Every play drawn is designed to score, but very few actually work. Successful players learn how to think on their feet and improvise in every situation.

This class will allow players to learn and understand how to dynamically play the 2Man/3Man game on & off-ball within an offense to become a more dangerous threat.

309, 509

Each session includes position specific warm-up/training followed by drills to give players live reps with players receiving position feedback.

Class is limited to 14 Offense & Defense and 2 Goalies.

311, 511
