I will continue to offer “Training Sessions” this winter, and maybe some in the spring if time permits during my varsity season. Coach Harvey started these last year and they were valuable at increasing the level of play for those that were involved.
Players will need to form a group of 3-4 other boys in the same age group, position, and skill level on their own. (Short sticks and long poles will make up groups, Attack/Midfield does not matter.) This group of 4-5 boys will work with me in private sessions as frequently as they would like. I will have days and times available during the week and groups can sign up for a time that works for their group. These times will be on the website and will book on a first come basis. I feel that this group work is by far the most effective way to coach these boys. It gives me an hour with 4-5 boys and we can do more with 4 than with a private 1v1 lesson.
The groups will get tons of repetition and work, and the multiple boy format allows us to do more drills with more movement and skills in each drill. The small number allows me to also have plenty of 1v1 time with each player to hone the skills most necessary for their development. The group format also lets the boys learn from each other, and have more fun working and pushing each other to improve.
These sessions will be an hour long and they will work extremely hard. I will do long pole groups or short stick groups. I will work on developing the skills they need to take their game to the next level and also teach them how to work on their own effectively, when there is not a coach watching. No group will be identical and I will doctor each session for that specific group each week. This is open to all boys who did No-Excuse this past year, and any boy signed up to tryout this fall. Please find groups that you can rely on and are committed to these sessions. Feel free to email me if you have a group that is interested. The cost is $40/boy each session and payment is due at each session.
As slots fill up, I will try and update this page so that you can see what is available each week.
