Anyway, within my time coaching at Hudsonville, I've realized that kids playing lacrosse in the off season is very important.
With that being said, I wanted to reach out to you and Hudsonville lacrosse to let you know that I am the Camp Director of Beechwood Churches Sports Summer Camp. This year i've implimented a full week of lacrosse during the week of July 30-August 2. The morning session of camp is for K-2nd graders, while the evening session is for 3rd-5th grade.
The premise of camp is to integrate the challenges of sports into faith.
The attachment contains all the information the parents would need to find out more information about the camp.
If you’re looking to improve your individual lacrosse skills, have fun, and meet new friends, then this camp is for you! Our lacrosse camps are geared toward players of all ability levels from experienced players to beginners.
The lacrosse skills we will focus on are:
• Defense (team and individual)
• Ground Balls • Dodging • Shooting
• Fast Breaks • Triangle Offense • Stick Skills
• Clears • Man Up, Man Down
• Face-Off and Wing Play
WMLAX Summer sessions are designed to be a relaxed atmosphere for players of all genders and skill level to learn and improve their playing skill. We apply heavy skills and drills sessions to improve the fundamentals of lacrosse to improve the performance of each player individually. The summer session is comprised of 2 hour practices 2 times a week (Tuesday & Thursday) from 6pm to 8pm. Practices are not manditory like some other programs, you make what you can. There will be game play and inter club play with other clubs as well as specialized clinics and tournament play for those players interested in tournament play. We are not a heavy travel team, we build player skills thru an integrated play and train program. There are opportunities for players interested in tournament play to join our program in these events, but our focus is on training skills needed to improve player attributes. Focus on footwork, positioning, stick handling, defense, shooting, off hand play, goalie training, offensive manuvering, and much more. All members of WMLAX will also be able to join the program throughout the year at any clinics, and tournaments that we host free of charge. That includes our Yeti Lacrosse Festival in October.
Registration will be $79 per player and will include:
Access to all practices, and skill training sessions
Inclusion in all clinics hosted by WMLAX for free all year long
Inclusion in Yeti Lacrosse Festival in Oct/Nov for free
Great facilities combined with a great coaching staff will once again culminate this year for a great experience at Davenport University. Every session is planned out to the minute to help the players learn about this great sport, and enjoy their experience. Stations in the morning, drills in the early afternoon, and games to wrap up the day will help players grow on an individual basis as well as progress in a team atmosphere. Between time on the field, we'll add in chalk talk, speed and agility training, and lots of fun!!
