What can the athlete expect?
The primary goal of this lacrosse specialization is to group high-level athletes of the same sport together to improve specificity of training but also to promote team building and unity.Each athlete can expect to perform a multitude of strength and power movements with an emphasis on bio-mechanics, technique, and efficiency. Injury reduction and core development will be of focus as well in order to develop whole-body balance.
