True Elite Training: Coaches Clinic



The growth of the game is West Michigan has been astonishing; new school programs sprout up every year and you see more and more people carrying their sticks around.  As much as it is awesome to see such phenomenal growth of the sport we love, it also calls for more coaches, which this state certainly is lacking at the moment.  Everyday I hear fathers talk about how they would love to coach the sport but don't feel confident because they never got a chance to play themselves and there are few coaching clinics in the area. True Elite Training incorporates top-notch coaching and limited attendance to create the individualized experience that Youth Coaches need. We have over 50 years combined lacrosse experience with the True Coaches. This Elite clinic will go over the basics of offense, defense, passing, shooting, rides & clears, man up & man down, and a proper drills to use in practice. We plan to keep this very simple and only cover the basics. After the clinic we plan to head onto the field and put some sticks in your hands and see if you learned anything!! If you would like to talk about more in depth lacrosse please feel free to reach out to one of us for a personal sit-down.
