Our curriculum includes traditional and non-traditional lacrosse drills and games that challenge our athletes to think creatively while mastering fundamental lacrosse skills!

What is Speed Lacrosse?

Speed lacrosse is exactly what it sounds; FAST & FUN, SPEED Lacrosse!! Speed lacrosse is played 3v3 with small goals, a soft ball, no goalies and no stick checks. There are no face off's, so after a goal the ball is put right back into play by the defensive team. Due to the smaller field size, players are forced to be creative and make quicker decisions on and off ball. Speed allows players the opportunity to play both offense and defense in a fun and competitive atmosphere.

Every speed lacrosse session will begin with 30 minutes of instruction focusing on techniques & skills that are reinforced throughout speed lacrosse games. Techniques covered during these sessions will include:

Passing & Catching

Shooting & Finishing Technique

Offensive & Defensive Positioning

1 on 1 Dodging Techniques (Offense & Defense)

2 & 3 Man Game (On Ball Picks, Off Ball Picks, Slips & Bails)

Hand-Eye Coordination Techniques

Defensive Footwork

Ground Ball Techniques and much more!

Coaching Philosophy

Woodchuck Lacrosse offers various off-season, developmental lacrosse programs. Our coaching philosophy prioritizes athletic growth and development specific to our sport. The Woodchuck Lacrosse curriculum emphasizes small-sided, traditional and non-traditional, lacrosse drills and games that reinforce the skills and techniques we teach. Understanding the benefits of positive reinforcement, our coaches excel in creating a fun environment that is instructional, progressive, safe, and competitive! 

All of our Woodchuck Lacrosse Programs are specifically geared towards skill development while expanding each athlete's lacrosse IQ. Through experience and research, we have identified key fundamental offensive and defensive skills needed to be a successful lacrosse player. During our sessions and practices, we explicitly focus on teaching our athletes the techniques used to master these skills. The techniques and skills that we teach are consistently reinforced through our unique drills and games. By playing progressive, small-sided lacrosse games in a highly competitive environment, our athletes are challenged to think outside the box while developing their game. 

Finally, our coaches understand the importance of creating a fun, competitive, yet “mistake friendly” environment that fosters creativity and growth. When learning new techniques athletes will make mistakes. That is okay, and is an essential part of the developmental process. Our athletes are not punished for making mistakes. When they make a mistake they are reminded of the technique to fire upon the next time they are in that situation. This reduces stress and anxiety, allowing our athletes to become more confident and creative lacrosse players.
