PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS


FALL GEAR UP

*Achievelax announces individualized Goal Keeper training in Gear Up sessions!

Achievelax's "Fall-Ball" program is designed to enhance the athlete's skill development and maintain the level of fitness that the athlete acquired during her summer camps, clinics, tournaments and work-outs.  Participants of Fall Gear Up recognize that they must commit themselves to year-round skill building and conditioning in order to Achieve success on the field in the spring.  Fall Gear Up, structured similarly to Winter and Pre-Season Gear Up, challenges the athlete with fast-paced, high-intensity drills, small-sided games, and demanding fitness training!

*NEW* Individualized Goal Keeper training will be provided during Gear Up sessions.  The focus over the 7 week program will include: proper warm up technique, footwork, shot stopping mechanics, positioning & angles, clearing, out-of-crease play and on-field vocal communication. Coaching of all skills will come in 1v1 instruction, small group instruction, small-sided drills and live play.

WINTER GEAR UP
This program is full.  Online registration is closed.
Please note that this program will fill and close!  Please register early as registration is often closed by January 1!


An intense fitness and lacrosse training program for high school athletes who want to get a head start preparing for the spring lacrosse seasons.  Winter Gear Up follows a strength and conditioning builder which starts out fairly conservative and gradually grows in difficulty with each session.  The goal is to be prepared for Pre-Season Gear Up.

Similar to the fitness, the skills training begins with low impact stick skills and small-sided games and progresses to full field drills that are very competitive and require executing skills at game like speed.  The athletes that participate in Gear Up are motivated; the level of competition sores when top lacrosse players come together on the same field.  This highly-competitive program challenges players to execute under intense pressure, at a very fast pace.

  • For: Girls High School, Grades 9-12
  • Location: Canton Sportsplex
  • Dates: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays; January 29 - February 15
  • Cost $350.00 per player
