Component Based Instructional Methodology

The Method

Our Component-Based Instructional Methodology allows us to teach concepts and skills in small pieces which players can utilize with us, and with their regular season programs.

The Compounded Interest in terms of system and skill understanding is rather unique to our approach.  The more time you train, the more familiar you become with your skills, movement and communication, and your subsequent ability to use them consistently.

Our method has proven to work over a duration of time lasting 10 years, and with players from across the State.  Moreover, the skills and style we teach stems from a desire to create a readiness for the Next Level of Competition.  Whether taking the step from 7/8 to JV, HS, MCLA, or NCAA, we help PREP lacrosse players to compete at their highest potential.

The Language of Lacrosse

While everyone enjoys using the “stock term” of Lacrosse IQ, we believe understanding the Language of Lacrosse is much more beneficial.  With StickStar we have a vocabulary that helps us build skill, movement, and adjustments.  Some of the conversations we have with our players during training or games are remarkable.  They can really convey what they are seeing and ask intelligent questions.  Utilizing the Socratic Method of question based learning and understanding, we reinforce our Vocabulary in an effort to build consistency.  Our players can communicate, which makes learning easier for everyone.
