For players excited about lacrosse and that want to train their skills and knowledge of the game with coaches and players possibly from their schools and outside of their neighborhoods.
Players are grouped per their skill level and game readiness to maximize player and team development (so there is room for many levels (HS: JV & Varsity; MS: U11-U15.) Training teams (practice only) and Competitive teams (tournament travel) exist for both HS & MS. We guide players on the Competitive Teams to maximize their experience by attending 2/3 tournaments.
The Wave HS & MS teams compete in mostly regional tournaments; tournaments will be finalized based on team make up. While we believe in consistency being a key part of athlete development, player absence due to extended trips or camps can be accommodated. Training players do not have to travel.
Spending time in the system helps players prepare for the next step by gaining experience. We work at areas like stickwork, footwork, creativity, team offense and defense, specialty and position work, large concepts, stragegy, rules and game time score and clock management (to name a few.)
