BR Elite Skills Training (B.E.S.T) Summer Sessions

Our B.E.S.T. sessions are back by popular demand.  Starting in June and continuing until early July we will be holding weekly individual skills sessions.  The sessions are tailored to specific topics and areas that normally get limited coaching (faceoff, shooting & dodging, defense, and goalies). The sessions will be in small groups (12 or less for faceoff, shooting & dodging, defense, and 4 for goalies).

The sessions are open to all area players and a first come, first served basis.

Parent Testimonials

  • "My daughter has played so well this year and just wanted to thank you for all the skills sessions this past winter ! I'm sure you will see her back next year." Tiffany C - Goalie Clinic
  • "My daughter joined the Level 1 shooting and dodging clinic with BR last Tuesday night with a friend and they both LOVED IT!!!  They got a ton of 1:1 attention.  They also commented that they felt their instructor actually understood girls lacrosse and they felt like they really learned a lot! She is excited for her second session tomorrow night!!!" Heather B  - Shooting Clinic
  • "The goalie clinic far exceeds anything my daughter has done with other clinics or prospect days etc. She always comes home smiling and feels like she improves every week. She always feels welcomed and part of the group by the coaches and other players!"  - Goalie Clinic
  • My daughter really enjoys the skills session because of the high intensity and focus from the coaches and athletes.  The small groups allowed for lot of reps and more personal training from the coaches. In addition, the coaches really care about each player improving their technique and skills." Steve D - Shooting Clinic
