DOC's 2019 Boys FALL 3-9th grade

 

Welcome to our DOC’S NYC 2019 Fall Lacrosse Program for Boys Grades 3rd – 9th

This Fall Doc’s NYC Lacrosse will run clinic sessions mixed with game play at Cardinal Spellman High School in Bronx on 2 Turf fields.

3rd - 9th Grades 9:00 AM - 1030 AM 

Times subject to change for each grade.

In Our 24th year, we offer a Fall program that covers the basics through game situations. This program is meant for players with experience in our program, from other programs, and for beginning entry level players. Our Fall philosophy is teaching and thus player improvement by covering all aspects of the game.

·        Ball Handling.  It all starts here and there will be plenty of touches in each drill we offer.

·      “Ground balls win games” so we work on this a lot.

·        Moving, Catching and Throwing (MCT)—our coaches are obsessed with improving the ability of each player to advance the ball down the field in “game speed” conditions.

·        Lacrosse Vision and IQ.  Find the open teammate when attacking the goal.

·        Shooting, shooting, and shooting (“time and room” and “on the run”; the fall is when players can get a lot of reps to develop shot making skills.

·        Athleticism.  Footwork, positioning, and guarding the ball and off the ball around the goal are the keys to defense in lacrosse and we will teach all these.

·        Specialties.  Draws, face-offs, and goalie instruction are all taught by our coaches in these specialty positions. 

 

Players will be grouped by age and skill level, with occasional mergers within larger groups for certain "full field" drills. Through an emphasis on repetitions in small groups/stations, we seek to improve stick skills, ball handling, and positioning needed for high level team play.

Our staff is made up of veteran Doc's coaches and guests;  the program is led by former MLL Star, Team USA, and current Team Israel star Max Seibald, assisted by Scott Woodworth and Mat Levine.
