Advanced Skills / Travel Team Practice Overview

We at Burning River have put together a multi day group and team concept skills camp. The camp is for players looking to improve their group and team concept skills and make the step up to the next level.

It is not for beginning players. 

The instruction will be intense, in small groups (att, mid, def, goalies) and geared towards helping the attendees get ready to lead their teams in the coming year. The instruction will be given by some of the top area coaches and Burning River Lacrosse alumni who are playing in college. It will be based on the practices that some of the top college coaches in Division 1, 2, and 3 (e.g. Salisbury, Roanoke, NYIT, Syracuse, Maryland, Hobart) have helped us organize and have used themselves to guide their teams to the success they have had in the NCAA playoffs.

Burning River Lacrosse's directors / coaches are some of the area’s top college coaches, high school coaches, and college players (BR Alumni). Burning River's coaches are focused on the goal of improving a player’s individual / fundamental stick skills, his positional skill set (Attack, Midfield, Defense and Goaltending), and his understanding of team concepts (Transition and Set Piece Offense and Defense) play. We do this by spending the vast majority of our coaching time teaching techniques and fundamentals in individual or small group sessions.
