SKILL DEVELOPMENT Optional training sessions will be held on Sunday mornings from September to January (exact dates below). The focus during those sessions will be twofold. Primarily there will be an emphasis on stick work, and basic skill work: feeding, footwork, defensive positioning, shooting, etc. Secondarily, players will be instructed on team play: how to attack and defend in transition, two-man games, unsettled play, etc. COMPETITION Certain Sundays will be designated for outside competition with locally based club teams, with the possibility of competing in one tournament. The determining factor for tournament participation will be the number of committed players. COST There is a requested donation of $300. All profits go directly to the Sankofa Lacrosse Foundation, and tax-exempt organization that provides camp and equipment scholarships to players in need, and supports efforts locally and nationally to expand the reach of the sport. The only additional cost is an optional "Win The Offseason" T-Shirt DATES (All sessions are run from 9:30a – 11:00a unless otherwise notified) September: 18 October: 2, 9*, 23, 30 November: 6*, 13, 20, 27 (TBD) December: 4, 11, 18 (TBD) January: 8, 15 * Outside competition dates.
