 Players 360 Lacrosse Select Girls Teams

 Play for the premier youth club team in the far Western Suburbs, work with experienced coaches from all areas and levels of the game. The season will run from September 2016 to August 2017 in an extended session designed to allow players to bond & work together to find success. The extended session also allows for more game and development opportunities including; 3-5 hours of practice a week, guest coach clinics, play days and tournaments.

Our goal is to grow the sport at the youth level by introducing higher level concepts while focusing on perfecting fundamental concepts, ideally these players will have a seam-less transition as the progress to the High School and later the College level. Focusing on growing skills as well as a passion for the game & athletic principles in general is also an integral part of this process.

Players 360 Select is a program created to develop your daughter as an athlete with a holistic approach; developing not only her individual skills as an athlete but implementing strategy and smarts when playing with a team. In our program we like to build character, promote leadership, and represent athletes with great sportsmanship.

Our Program Structure

 Program Structure

The “360” name is deeper than what we put on our jerseys, our goal is to develop each player completely – or 360 degrees.

The facets of our program we hope to focus on and implement for our athletes are:

o    Skill Development as a Foundation
o    Field Strategy and Smarts
o    Athleticism and Fitness
o    Nutrition and Healthy Habits
o    Character, Sportsmanship and Leadership Development by Example

We are firmly committed to developing our athletes on and off the field and are excited to include some goal setting within the season and in their career as a lacrosse athlete. We will be having the girls make some team and individual goals for both long and short term and aim to hit those goals while working with them. The athletes will be required to complete self evaluation about their performance followed by coach’s feedback.
