CORE 1: FOUNDATIONS

At the beginning stages of learning lacrosse, we want all players to focus on being great with their dominant hand. This class will focus on passing, catching, picking up ground balls and being able to cradle with the dominant hand so that players can ultimately compete in 1v1 or 2v1 settings. Players will be run through specific drills and also compete in small-sided games. Our Foundations class is focused on building strong all-around lacrosse players who needs more work on his/her dominant hand fundamentals. No Prerequisite Classes Required. Please note that players need all equipment for this class: Boys (helmet, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads and a stick), Girls (stick, goggles and mouthguard). ONLY Sneakers or Turf shoes allowed.

CORE 2: SKILL MASTER

In our Skillmaster class, players will continue to become more proficient with their strong hands while incorporating weak-handed stick skills. A key point of emphasis in this class will be incorporating their ability to pass and catch with a teammate in motion. Players should expect to learn different ways to: receive a pass from a teammate, move after they pass the ball, and how to get open in order to receive a pass from a teammate. In addition we will begin to teach different two-man game movements like give and go’s, backdoor cuts, draw and dumps and the best ways to defend each of them. On top of continuing to focus on individual skills; players will be introduced to 2v2 concepts ultimately working from each side of the field.

SHOOTING & DODGING - LEVEL 1

Our fundamental shooting class that focuses on what it takes to become a great shooter and dodger. Players will be taught proper throwing/shooting forms and how to generate more power in their shots. Learning the correct footwork for each dodge (split, jab, roll, face) starting at a slow pace is critical before progressing into full speed. In order to become strong dodgers we believe that it is important that players have the proper footwork and technique before ultimately incorporating the upper body and the proper shooting form. In one of our classes players can expect to take close to 150 shots or more while being challenged by our coaches to focus on their accuracy and power. Prerequisites: Core 1 Foundations Please note that players need all equipment for this class: Boys (helmet, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads and a stick), Girls (stick, goggles and mouthguard).

SHOOTING & DODGING - LEVEL 2

Our second stage of Shooting and Dodging will reinforce Shooting and Dodging 1 and build up into more advanced content. Time will also be spent on the development of weak hand shooting form and velocity. The focus will shift to adding combination dodges, re-dodges, roll aways and setting up a shot off of a pass or initial dodge. Players will get the chance to work in two or three person groups when taking this class which will mimic certain movement patterns. This is important in understanding how and where they should be receiving passes in order to set themselves up for the most success. Prerequisites: Shooting and Dodging Level 1 Please note that players need all equipment for this class: Girls (stick, goggles and mouthguard). ONLY Sneakers or Turf shoes allowed.

In shooting and dodging 1 and 2 the player learns the fundamentals of how to shoot and dodge in both strong and weak hands. This class takes it one step further. Shooting drills will consist of catching and shooting on the run, proper technique to feed the shooter. Full speed dodging to feed a cutting shooter. All drills are done on the run and up tempo. We will focus on picking and how to receive a pass for a shot off the pick. Which hand to have your stick in on cuts and different areas of the field. We will also focus on catching and shooting quickly on the crease and how to play in that area of the field. This is a level 3 class, the player should be a level 3 player and or have completed Shooting and Dodging 1 and 2.

GOALIE TRAINING

BBL's progressive academy is designed to develop goaltenders of all ages. This unique program addresses the specific training needs of each goalie. Classes will begin with goalie specific strength and conditioning drills to create a more athletic and explosive goalie in the crease, followed by skill development. The skill curriculum is cutting edge and focuses on the CORE 4 skills needed to play goalie at the next level. 1. Stance and body positioning 2. Arc play 3. Evolution of the Step 4. Clearing and Communication. In addition to building a better "stopper" we also focus on areas outside of the crease: athleticism, leadership, communication, and Lax IQ--- qualities that college coaches use to differentiate a blue chip prospect vs a regular collegiate prospect.

Elite game play is the last step in our Core Training series.

If group and field size allow, we also will add small sided 2-way games which work on transition play, clearing and riding including two-way 3v3 games (like basketball), 1-2-1, 2-1-2, and 2-2-2s. Elite Gameplay classes are coached by our highest level BBL certified coaches with the most experience. Prerequisites: Foundations, SkillMaster and GamePlay Evo Classes.
