This is a instructional clinic for players where emphasis is placed on having fun while improving individual skills and basic team concepts. It is a main goal of the experienced staff to build a passion for lacrosse through these sessions!
Our effective yet fun skill stations followed by modified games is a format that has proven to engage these younger players for the entire session. It is the goal of the experienced Madlax coaches to instill a love for sports through this lacrosse clinic. We want every player to leave SCOOPERS & RIPPERS spring clinic loving lacrosse and wanting more. We will provide the best instruction and safe learning environment for young, aspiring athletes. Focus will be placed on having fun, safety, teaching and showing proper individual skills and basic team concepts for each camper.
Campers will be placed in groups according to size, skill, and experience. In all groups we will teach specific individual skills and basic team concepts. We create various fun yet competitive drills in small groups to teach specific aspects of the game. We will play numerous games that keep them moving. We will finish the sessions playing modified games like 4v4, Fireball, Steal the Bacon, Races, and Musical Balls. Occasionally Madlax will reward one "Camper of the Day" who exemplifies great attitude and effort for the session. This is a small part of the exciting CASE Initiative that can't start too young for future Madlax All-Stars! This award goes to the camper who shows the best effort that day, asks great questions, has fun, hustles, and proves to the coaches that he wants to get better!
AGAIN...YOUR BOYS WILL HAVE FUN!
Each of the 60 minute sessions typically includes 30-40 minutes of drills in stations followed by 20-30 minute of modified games or fun drills. Arrive 20 minutes early for check-in and to get on equipment. We will move players between groups as necessary. Players will be moved between age groups as necessary based on skill and improvement. We will keep groups small so sign up now as this league will fill up.
NOTE: If the coaching staff notices any promising 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade boys who are outstanding and deserving to move up to the Rippers Team we will invite them so you have the option to make that switch right away. Rippers Team adds more games. See Ripper Team Page HERE.
