Box/Field Experience Camp - Encinitas

3d San Diego is excited to change up our camp and bring you a Box/Field Experience Camp this summer to the Magdalena Ecke YMCA in Encinitas. We are bringing in the field element this year to our YMCA camp. We want players to experience the transition of box to field lacrosse in a fun camp environment.

This camp will focus on player development and creating lacrosse IQ. The tempo of drills in the box environment creates situations that force players out of their comfort zone. This is when the best learning happens. Players will see dramatic improvements in their skills over the four day camp. The camp will include real 4'x 4' box goals and goalies dressed in the proper box equipment, giving players the very real experience of trying to find and create ways to shoot on tight targets.

In addition to the box training, campers will be introduced to the many box nuances that will have an immediate effect on field skills. Training will focus on the two man game, five man offense, box man up, box man down, face offs, transition offense and defense, on ball screens and picks, off ball screens and picks, and total team concepts. The box training will lead up to game play at each age group during one or more of the training sessions.

Constant repetition and hundreds of touches over four days will help players learn these new fundamentals and apply them to the field. There will be 22+ hours of box lacrosse training over the five day camp. Skill development at the Box Experience Camp will focus on:  Finishing / Faking / Catching in traffic / Team defensive concepts / Deceptive shooting / Feeding / Defensive footwork / Dodging in tight confines / Cutting / Cycling / Picking / Screening / Power Play.
