NE South Western Mass Fall Training

Program Overview

Small Group Training in the 3d Methodology is a great tool for youth and high school players who want to ready their skills for the next level.  3d’s staff of highly skilled coaches will create custom plans to help your player get the most out of each training sessions.  This nine week program will emphasize advanced lacrosse skills and techniques such as high level stick handling, finishing, faking, feeding, physical dodging, two man game, picks and screens and how to incorporate them into the field game.  Players of all positions will learn how to be playmakers, handle the ball in tight spaces, learn a variety of moves/dodges, and learn the "two man game"  - the ultimate teacher of off-ball IQ.  These Clinics are aimed at training players who truly want to get better and find a way to separate themselves from the pack.  All of our sessions will challenge the players to get better and force them to compete in small sided, up-tempo drills and games

This training will be coached by Connor Mooney.  Connor, a Western Mass native, grew up in Wilbraham and played for his father, Russ Mooney, at Minnechaug High School before heading to Avon Old Farms for prep school.  After AOF, Connor played for 4 years at UMASS where he was a team captain, 2x All NE Player, CAA All-Conference player and USILA Scholar All-American.  After graduation, Connor was the offensive coordinator for WNEU before moving to work for 3d Lacrosse full time last year.


Each session will include up tempo, high skill training focused on the Box Field Hybrid methodology as well as small sided game play.  There are nine sessions total, with nine hours of high paced training grounded in the fundamentals of the game and IQ development.
