Just playing 3x is the perfect way for players to improve at their own pace with minimal coach interaction. 3x is the original small sided game and gives athletes more time in possession, more opportunities to make in-game decisions both offensively and defensively, more opportunities to score, more opportunities to assist, more opportunities to defend, and just more opportunities overall to increase skill and lacrosse IQ. Coaches will supervise games and provide teaching and guidance if and when needed but will air on the side of just letting the kids play.
Play on the same day at the same time every week at the same location. Campers will be separated by age and ability level to play for 90 minutes per session.
