Kzoo: School of Lax

True Kalamazoo is excited to bring the School of Lax program to Soccerzone on Sprinkle rd starting in January! 

Tweaking the format of the school of lax program this winter will offer kids a 7-week program focused on the fundamental and positional skills to assist players in getting ready for their school season. Each day coaches will lead players through a 15-minute lax Prep workout focused on building players' athletic ability and lowering the chances of lower extremity injury. Followed by 45 minutes of skill and positional development led by True Kalamazoo Staff. 

This program will have two groups available. One group will be for players that have experience and equipment. The second group will be for new players that do not have equipment yet and want to learn lacrosse for the first time. The two groups will be kept on opposite sides of the field for safety and appropriate level of training. Each group will be limited in size to allow players to get good individual attention and a solid amount of repetitions.
