StickStar Affiliate Announcement: The ATX Jammers

A huge achievement in continuing the development of players in Central Texas.

StickStar Lacrosse is happy to announce another affiliate under its umbrella, The ATX Jammers, based out of Austin.  The ATX Jammers are the 8th program joining our affiliate fold, and we are very pleased by this development.  Many parents, and players across the State have sought out instruction from StickStar, as our Component Based Instructional Methodology has yielded consistent results to develop talent over time.  StickStar has remained on the cutting edge of skill based improvement and development in the State for over 13 years!

“At StickStar we’ve had the opportunity to compete against Coach Cafferatas’ Jammers program and have always admired their skill and approach to the game.  Coach Cafferata has done a great job building a program dedicated to development in an area that is now booming with lacrosse.  For StickStar, recent developments in Central Texas have made it very tough to train down that way, but now we have a program on board with our system of development. Our first ATX Jammers Affiliate Seminar (March 11/12) over Spring Break will have us training once again in Central Texas.  A truly great development!”  Anthony Crimmins (Owner / Operator)

"I am excited for the ATX Jammers to be the Austin affiliate of the StickStar brand. This will allow our Jammers players local training opportunities through StickStar seminars being held twice a year in Dripping Springs. This will also allow our coaches to work closely with the StickStar staff to help create a cohesive learning environment. This is a win win situation for the ATX Jammers, StickStar, and Austin lacrosse as a whole'. Bill Cafferata (Program Director)

SEMINAR TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:  To begin, StickStar will provide seminar-training opportunities for the players of the Jammers program.  StickStar’s component based methodology has proved consistent and applicable to players from any area.  StickStar’s belief is that at the end of the day if a player trains with StickStar consistently they will be the best possible version of the player they can be.  The ability to transfer skill to players who train consistently is well documented.

COACHES TRAINING:  Each seminar will incorporate a coaches training session to help with the ATX Jammers instructors continued education. StickStar will not install offenses or defenses, but will provide drills and a framework, which will lend itself to any system of execution a coach prefers.

StickStar Coaches will provide the framework for the training opportunities while coaches from the Jammers program work to familiarize themselves with our system of improvement.  StickStar’s component based approach towards development acts as a universal donor for every style of play or program!

Offering the ATX Jammers seminar opportunities, coach’s development, and a training manual, StickStar will serve as a resource in this relationship!  We are very excited and look forward to getting started with another talented program.
