MN Regional Program Overview


True Lacrosse Minnesota is a year-round lacrosse training program.  Our #1 priority is player development, and we believe in the continuity of training year-round.  Regional players will receive consistent high-level lacrosse instruction from professional coaches and will compete in 3-4 tournaments throughout the year. 

This program is designed for the player that is interested in improving their game and willing to put in the work to do so.



Training:

Regional players will have access to weekly lacrosse training sessions throughout the 2019-2020 season.  These sessions will be regionalized to make it easier on our players/families and will be led by our True Minnesota coaches & directors.

The format of these sessions will vary over the course of the year:

Skills Training;  Positional Training;  Team Training  

In preparation for tournaments, players will attend “Journey to the Tourney” training camps.  These training camps will take place before regional tournaments allowing players and coaches to finalize team preparations for the upcoming event.  

True Lacrosse has developed a training curriculum that ensures our players an opportunity to advance their skills, IQ, and athleticism.  Following the True Lacrosse model, players will learn proper fundamentals, in-game scenarios/concepts, in-depth nuances and much more. Our goal for each player is to have them continuously improve, gain more confidence, have fun, and make friendships that will last a lifetime.
