BANDITS LACROSSE 70/30 PLAYER DEVELOPMENT MODEL
The Bandits Lacrosse Club prides itself on teaching the game through proper coaching. We exercise the 70/30 Player Development Model, where we focus 70% of the season on training and 30% of the season on performance in events.
We feel that the best way for a player to REFINE HIS GAME is through multiple touches and reps in practice, while receiving excellent coaching.
The skills and lessons learned during training are then executed through performance in events.
Our training sessions are more than just practice; they are curriculum-based sessions that focus on planned drills and exercises that emphasize fundamentals and maximize touches. Training that focuses on these aspects helps to refine a player's game and increases lacrosse IQ.
Events serve a few purposes for the Bandits Lacrosse Club:
1 - They serve as a "measuring stick" that allows players and teams to gauge strengths and opportunities to improve.
2 - They act as an opportunity for players to execute what was learned during training.
3 - For our high school players, they are a chance to showcase their skills in front of college coaches at most events.
4 - They are fun! While training is important and is often times fun, nothing compares to the experience of playing in a game.
