"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
For anyone who has ever met me on the coaching, camp or clinic circuit you'll know how firmly I believe in this idea. If you want to win, you have to want to put in the time to be the best shooter, best hustle stat player, best 1v1 defender, or best goaltender you can be. It takes hours of practice to train both your mind and your body to successfully hit that mid low shot or contain your attacker for a 5 second set, and to do it EVERY time. We're here to give the tools and the expertise to be your best player - the rest is up to you!
Having spent the last 18 years on the camp & clinic circuit, averaging 8 camps a summer and numerous clinics throughout the year, I have seen an unfortunate growing trend where players are solely seen as a "number." Whether for recruiting purposes or in terms of maximizing profits, the individual player often gets lost in the shuffle. I decided it was time for a change, and Around the Crease Lacrosse Camps & Clinics was born.
Similar to the successful philosophy used at Boston University Lacrosse, Around the Crease Lacrosse's primary focus is to take each individual player and make her better. Around the Crease coaches use detail-oriented teaching & evaluation of stickwork, footwork, shooting, and communication in order to raise each player's level of play and personal confidence. With truly low player/coach ratios, coaches who are passionate teachers of the game and an emphasis on individual stick skills, small sided game concepts and improving a player's ability to read the game, we have found a winning system.
At Around the Crease Lacrosse, we look at you as a future Division I, II, or III college athlete. Not every player will go on to compete at the highest levels of National and International competition, but we strive to get you ready if you do!
We want you to feel that you are walking away a better individual lacrosse player and better teammate to your high school, club or potential college team.
