Our men's program model for players born 2000 - 2004 is changing this fall. With the recruiting changes this spring to eliminate early recruiting, our focus in the grade 8 - grade 12 years is to train, develop and prepare our members for college recruitment. Edge Training Academy will offer participants the opportunity to train 3x a week and nearly 100 hours of training in an elite lacrosse environment. Training Academy will be comprised of 3 main training sessions, Skill Sessions, Speed, Strength and Conditioning training and Team Sessions.

Training Academy is a closed program, we are accepting applications at this time for players who would be interested in committing to the training academy.

Skill sessions 
Will be run weekly for members and will be led and developed by our team staff and college advisory staff. Skill sessions will be hosted by NCAA/Pro positional staff and Guest Coaches. Training will be focused on developing and improving all areas of our member's skill set.

Offensive players will focus on becoming elite, offensive threats from any part of the field. Areas of focus and development are:

Shooting - Overhand, sidearm, accuracy, velocity, quick sticks, shooting on the run, technique, mechanics and release
Dodging - Variable dodges, when and where to best utilize them
Footwork - Speed, agility and footwork to create space on offense
Faceoffs - Stance, technique, warmups, counters and wing play

Defensive Players will focus on becoming elite, shutdown defensemen. Areas of focus:
Positioning - Proper positioning, body positioning, approach and angles
Stick work - Variable checks, how and when to throw them in combination of proper body positioning, ground ball work, passing and shooting
Footwork - Speed, agility and mobility in order to be able to keep up with offensive players and the ability to clear

Goalies will focus on becoming excellent ball stoppers, and leaders on defense. Areas of focus:
Positioning - Proper stance and technique, positioning and angles
Stick Work - Passing, catching, clearing from the goalie position
Footwork - speed and agility focus along with proper footwork in goa

Speed, Strength and Conditioning
Players over the course of the fall program will take their physical and athletic ability to the next level. Players will focus on improving a player's physical fitness, strength, speed and conditioning. Conditioning, and physical fitness are integral components to on field success. Members will work with trainers and coaches to improve, train and push their physical limits. Members will also be taught about proper stretching and cool-down techniques to remain healthy, fit and prepare to compete. We will host baseline testing and in season testing to track and monitor a player's development throughout the season.

Team Sessions
Weekly team sessions will be utilized to refine, develop and execute offensive and defense systems. Team sessions will be run by team coaches who will have weekly practice plans for their teams. Coaches will have more time to draw up and develop plays and systems based on their team personnel. Team sessions will allow coaches to implement offense, defense, man up/down, rides, clears, faceoff and wing play to prepare for fall recruiting events.
