Box Immersion Camp 2017 - Ontario
3d Lacrosse is excited for the 7th annual Box Immersion Camp in Virgil, Ontario! This one-of-its-kind camp has been one of the best training opportunities of the summer since its inception as one of 3d’s premiere offerings.
Training and Skills
3d Lacrosse is prepared to push your game to the next level. At 3d’s Box Immersion Camp, the focus has been and will always be player development and lacrosse IQ. During the four days of the intense, experiential camp, players will be immersed in the box lacrosse game and box lacrosse-specific training. The program is designed to help attendees see dramatic improvements in their game as a result of the training regime and the exposure to a genuine box lacrosse environment, coaches, drills and game settings.
A fast-paced tempo from start to finish, players find themselves in situations that force them to step out of their comfort zones, work harder to make plays and test their lacrosse IQ. The Box Immersion Camp staff features real box goalies; attendees will be shooting on 4-foot-by-4-foot nets guarded by experienced box goalies who will help the players become better shooters.
Focusing on a long list of box skills, drills and play, participants will begin to pick up the nuances of the box game. Specific team concepts built into the Box Immersion Camp training schedule include: five-man offense, the two-man game, extra-man offense, man-down defense, face offs, transition offense, transition defense, on-ball screens and picks, off-ball screens and picks and total-team concepts.
Skill development at the Box Immersion Camp will have a focus on finishing, faking, catching in traffic, deceptive shooting, feeding, defensive footwork, dodging in tight confines, cutting, cycling, picking, screening and much more.
All the training and hard work at the Box Immersion Camp culminates with a game against a Canadian box team for each specific age group during one of the sessions.
