Upstate Winter Box Training 2017
3d Lacrosse is excited to announce Winter Box Lacrosse training at Rochester Sports Garden in Rochester, NY. This program is open to both 3d Select players and other experienced lacrosse players’ grades 5-12 in the region. No Box Lacrosse experience required. Box lacrosse is a 5-on-5, non-stop, fast-paced, high-touch and high-repetition game played inside of a hockey rink with boards and a 4-by-4-foot goal. When taught the correct way, players will experience tremendous skill development that translates tremendously to the field as proven by the large # of Canadians having success in the NCAA. It is simply the fastest engine of skill development in the sport. Each session will consist of 30 participants and will comprise 1 hour of Box Trainings followed by 30 minutes of Box scrimmage play where players will be challenged to apply the techniques learned that day into game play.
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.
Box Team Tournament Opportunity
We are excited to announce that we will be forming 3 teams to compete in the upcoming Indoor (Box) tournament in Rochester, NY. We will be fielding a Pee Wee (5th/6th), Bantam (7th/8th) and a Midget (9th/10th) team to compete in the Jr. Knighthawks box tournament on February 3rd & 4th, 2018. We will be selecting our teams through our winter box league via personal invitations. In addition to the training, the first three sessions will serve as an open tryout and selections will be made based on the evaluations of skills and IQ over the course of our first 3 sessions. *There will be an additional cost to reflect the tournament registration fee and a custom 3d box long sleeve jersey.

It is the goal of 3d Lacrosse to provide an outstanding instructional, education and technical training experience for all players. Our highly qualified staff of professional coaches will utilize the 3d Box-Field Hybrid™ Development System to train and coach all players in this unique program. Player development is arguably the most important and least emphasized component of lacrosse throughout the nation. 3d Lacrosse structures camp scenarios that bring players to new levels of playmaking. Founder Jamie Munro pioneered the Box-Field Hybrid™ Development System in the United States as a Head Coach in Division I lacrosse and now brings it to all 3d Lacrosse programming. The tempo and tactics of 3d practices will resemble those of Division I lacrosse. Skill development at the Intro to Box lacrosse will include and focus on: Finishing / Faking / Catching in traffic / Deceptive shooting / Feeding / Dodging in tight confines / Cutting / Cycling / Picking / Screening / Power Play. Both dominant and non-dominant hands will be incorporated with all skills.
