Summer Knights is a skills acceleration program which leverages the proven best practices in developing youth athletes. The program emphasizes fundamentals and fun versus extensive tournament play. Our Summer Knights program consists of three key components:
6 "Drill Stations"-designed to help expand both Lax IQ and basic stick skills. The repetitions at our Drill Stations take full advantage of what neuroscientists call the "motor-skills window" when technique is grooved into memory;
7v7 Short Field games- The short field/tight space environment ensures every player gets lots of "touches". These touches are essential to help players learn to execute skills at game speed. In a short field/tight space environment, players also learn to pass and protect the ball under pressure, an important skill as players progress to higher levels. Finally, 7 v 7 play also allows players to try out the new skills and knowledge they have learned at our Drill Stations in a safe, "no risk" game setting. We always encourage players to try out new moves, be creative, and develop their own "game" while having fun.
Tournament Play- Tournaments allow players to enjoy the competition and camaraderie offered through tournament play. More importantly, it also enables players to "test" and benchmark their skills against other top players so they can see what they've learned and whether they've started to become a "lax master". Tournaments also help us identify what skills we need to continue to focus on as a program.
