Coach Joe Garavente - firstname.lastname@example.org
We all know that kids love to play in games. We also know what Rec, Middle School, High School and College Coaches know best - in order to be the best player you can be and get the most enjoyment out of the game you need to spend time training and working on your skills. Advance your skills and then put them to use in games.
Most of you are familiar with my work. I am a long time East Brunswick Rec, Monroe Rec and Monroe High School lacrosse coach with a passion for promoting the game and motivating players to be the best they can be. I was fortunate enough to figure out what to do to train in high school to become the best player I could be and became a High School All American and get recruited to play at Johns Hopkins. And make a significant contribution to two NCAA Champion ship teams. As this is now my full time job, I would like to share that passion and experience of working with many players to develop your skills and work with you to become the best player you can be. To give you the best training available in the area at a reasonable price. I use not only time proven technique but insight into the state of art techniques being developed today. I have posted my playing and coaching resume at the bottom of the page.
The skills you can train for are endless and the perfection of and a strong base of fundamentals are a requirement for a successful playing career. The idea of training will be to take the lessons of the sessions with the ability to transfer for use in your personal workouts.
Offensive Skills we will be working on in the training sessions
· Proper, repeatable fundamentals of throwing and catching for consistency
· Cradling and stick protection
· Fundamentals for the Off-hand so it is no different than your strong hand
· Proper technique for maximization of speed of outside shot
· Deception techniques to beat goalies for mid range
· Finishing!!! Learn how to best score goals from inside with all the shots
· Visual analysis of shots for players to understand their mechanics and possible area of improvement (think golf video lessons)
· Proper footwork for dodging
· Using the body when dodging
· Faking – Both shooting and passing
· Tricks to add to your dodging toolbox
And many more
