This summer has been FULL of lacrosse and we are so excited to tell you guys what we have planned for our future programs! TEAM has been up to some REALLY cool things and it’s all for our players! First off, we finished our summer season on a GREAT note. To everyone who recently participated in our Tribz tournament THANK YOU! The girls went 3-1 for the weekend with just 2-3 subs all weekend! The games were played so well and the girls were very open to all of the advice and changes the coaches were relaying to them. We also had two teams earlier this summer who participated in America’s Finest Rivalry in San Diego, and Capital Cup in Richmond, VA. Both teams and ALL players played and responded very well to the teams they challenged as well as responding to the coach’s feedback. We could tell that the girls really enjoyed their time together- especially all the way on the East Coast!
For those of you who weren’t able to participate in the tournaments, but were with us all summer for our Summer Development Program - we also want to THANK YOU for all of your hard work and effort! The coaches enjoyed working with absolutely everyone regardless of the heat, or thunderstorms (depending on what coast you’re on ;). We have some really exciting Fall Programs coming up that we hope everyone joins so that we can continue to work with you and grow the game!
Starting on August 20th we will be offering Box Lacrosse in 2 locations in San Diego for your convenience!
Santee - Sundays from 10-11:30am
Poway - Sundays from 4-5:30pm
If you are not familiar with Box Lacrosse, it is a smaller version of the game! With a shorter field, and less players, Box Lacrosse gives players the opportunity for more touches on the ball as well as a faster paced game to keep up with. If you can keep up in Box, you can keep up in a regular game! Box Lacrosse also focuses more on skills considering the ball is moving faster from player to player. It’s a GREAT way to keep your skills sharp throughout the off season in the Fall. Registration for Box Lacrosse is now open!! You can click here for registration details - we hope to see you out there!
Draw Clinic with Loren Generi
We are so excited to announce that TEAM Lacrosse Academy is partnering with Navy Alumnae, Loren Generi, for a speciality Draw Clinic! Loren played for Navy for four years and currently holds the record for over 400 draw controls for the program. Loren shared with us how much fun she had while playing at the Naval Academy and how being there made her fall in love with the sport all over again. “Recruiting in high school could get stressful at times but while at the Naval Academy, a place that is meant to shape academic and physical training, lacrosse was a getaway, the best part of my day”. She expressed how she would not change a thing about being a student-athlete and that it taught her so much about leadership - “I use lessons every day from the field while leading a division of Sailors as a Surface Warfare officer on a ship stationed in
San Diego, CA.”
We encourage our girls to come out and learn the specialized skills of taking the draw- experienced or not! “It’s never too late to start taking the draw. I started taking it in high school on and off but didn't seriously learn the art of it until college. Head Coach Cindy Timchal and Assistant Coach Corey Donohoe saw something in me and taught me so many methods and tricks.” Loren will be at this clinic to teach you those tricks and to teach girls that you CAN control so much more than just flicking the ball up in the air. “It’s a great feeling being in a position to set your team up to have possession as much as possible.” This clinic is VERY limited and we will only be taking the first 20 girls who sign up!!
