NE South - Western Mass Box Training
3d NE South returns to Western Mass for Two (2) Winter Sessions of Box Lacrosse at AllSport in Northampton, MA. Box Lacrosse training has been proven to be one of the best ways to develop lacrosse players. In box lacrosse, the confines of the glass and boards force players to move faster, think quicker, and move the ball efficiently. The small-sided game play in the box sets players up for more touches leading to a faster skill progression. Lastly, the goals in box lacrosse are smaller which make skills like faking, feeding and finishing harder. Players will find box lacrosse challenging but rewarding and fun.
This winter we are offering 2 Sessions each lasting Four (4) Weeks in Western Mass area at Allsport Soccer Arena, in Northampton MA. At the end of the winter season, your player will have increased his skills and gained confidence in his ability whether in the box or on the field.
Why Box Lacrosse/Background
It is the goal of 3d Lacrosse to provide an outstanding instructional, educational and technical training experience for all players. This program is designed to bring in experienced lacrosse players and take their game to the next level. At 3d Lacrosse, we teach true box techniques that can be found all the way through NLL play. Box lacrosse skills and techniques that will be taught include:
- Catching in traffic
- Deceptive shooting
- Dodging in tight confines
- Picking & Screens
- The 2-Man Game
- Power Play
- How to defend against all these scenarios
Box Lacrosse creates the ultimate environment for taking your game to the next level. Through the tight space and confines, players will get more touches, shots reps, dodges, and develop more sound defensive technique having to play with a short stick. Players will learn how to set proper picks and roll quickly, instead of popping out high as many players naturally do. Players will learn how to fake using minute but deceiving movements that most goalies in the States have never seen. Defensively, players will learn sounds defensive technique on ball, off ball and in the 2-man game. Box training with 3d Lacrosse is the fastest way to take your game to the next level.
