Since 2011, LACROSSOVER has been mentoring and coaching female student-athletes from the DC metro area. In addition, we work with individuals and companies to help create a culture of success. We work with every age and skill level to bring our your best and grow your game. We have coached many players who have gone on to be successful at top DI and DIII programs and at the professional and international level.
LACROSSOVER uses a holistic method of coaching. We believe in coaching the entire person. Our sessions are tailored to fit each girl’s unique needs, learning style, and skill level. We use positive reinforcement and develop the strengths in each player. This coaching style allows girls to take risks and to gain self-confidence as a player and as a person.
Skills and Fundamentals
Fundamentals are essential. Repetition leads to excellence. The fundamentals of lacrosse are catching, throwing, cradling, body positioning, and footwork. There are many levels of skill within the fundamentals, which means that there can never be too great an emphasis on developing these core skills. We will work together to improve basic skills that lead to a more effective and confident player. The goal is for each player to reach a level of comfort with her basic skills so she no longer has to think about using them. In mentally or physically tiring situations, the fundamentals will naturally kick in.
