Our format offers a small-sided playing environment that allows players to get tons of repetitions on both sides of the ball with no standing around. Our instruction includes but is not limited to the rules of the game, IQ, defense, stick-work, 2-man game, 3-man game, faking & finishing, dodging, screens, and off-ball motion.
Our small ball programs are meant for maximum development, action and fun! Nationally, we have been at the forefront of using small ball as an effective training tool and were the first in Indiana to do so going back to 2008. We certainly did not invent this format but we are proud to say we have been doing this long before it became the norm. Today small ball is an integral part of training for youth and college teams across the country and has also been adopted by US lacrosse.
