A1 ELITE TRAINING SYSTEM

TRAINING SYSTEM OVERVIEW

This is our full year training system. A1 Elite is a structured training method that focuses giving important skills and techniques constant work throughout the whole year. That way, our players are ready to go and in peak form when the school season comes and tournament season. That being said, we believe in multi-sport athletes, and so do College Coaches! Our training is formatted in a way that does not overwork or use too much of each athlete’s time. Now they can excel in their other sports while training the skills, practicing and playing throughout the year. We believe that lacrosse is a skill sport and the players that have the best skills always find their way onto the field. Each A1 Elite Player will be able to attend our weekly skill training sessions, 3 3-week strength & speed training sessions throughout the year, 3 indoor lacrosse leagues, full access to our training app and facility, and GEAR. We do this in an affordable way and you are NOT tied in to play with our summer travel teams if you wish to play with your previous club. That being said, if you wish to continue to play team ball with us in the summer the cost to train all year with us AND play summer travel lacrosse is still cheaper than what most “clubs” in the area advertise. 

We are accepting athletes for the following years, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025.

WHAT SETS US APART

We train our skills every week, practice and hone them in with our indoor sessions, work on speed & strength during the off-season, and then have opportunities to compete in summer tournaments. If you can’t make certain sessions no big deal, we just want you to have full access to our Coaches, training sessions, and facility.
