Swordfish Young Guns, starting in Fall 2017, is designed for young players, age 6-9, to train at a high level before jumping into the competitive travel team arena. The primary goal is to make lacrosse fun without compromising the quality of lacrosse education.
As a developmental program, the Young Guns are not scheduled to attend any tournaments this fall. This is strictly an instructional program at this time. In the place of tournaments, the team will have special guest coaches and clinics, speed and agility training, dedicated positional work and friendly scrimmages against other programs.
Practices will begin mid-May. Multiple coaches, multiple stations, high reps and lots of touches. Each practice session will have clearly identified skills and goals with drills designed to put those tools in each player’s skill set.
The final 30-45 minutes of every practice will be Speed Lacrosse style of play; small field, helmets and gloves (no hitting) with a premium on stick skills, movement and heads up play. The Speed Lacrosse style give players more touches than a traditional scrimmage forcing a more rapid development of lacrosse IQ and skills disguised as pure fun.
