While it might seem obvious that the more you have the stick in your hands, the better you will perform, that is not always the case. It is the “quality of the touches” you perform followed by the number of repetitions that makes the difference. Old School box-themed drills are designed to produce high repetitions in game simulated drills while we provide meaningful feedback to players in our sessions. Drills that reinforce quick decision making skills are utilized due to the small operating space and become increasingly complex as the sessions pass.
Old School curriculum is implemented by current Team USA Indoor assistant coach Adam Mueller. Coach Mueller is well known in the region for his skills with player development and after 19 seasons in the NLL (both as a player and a coach) he brings a wealth of knowledge and serious work ethic to the sessions. Sessions are workouts….it is that simple…this is not for the first year player and this is not for goalies.
Why Skills sessions? Coaches in the spring do not have much time to polish player skills and they shouldn’t have to, they need to manage other aspects of running a team. It is the responsibility of the player to take care of this in the off-season, however, many players do not receive the quality feedback needed. After all, a high number or repetitions with improper form or without corrective feedback can produce “bad habits” that spring coaches will surely not have the time to correct. We teach and implement the fundamentals of passing, catching, shooting and dodging as they relate to more efficient game play. Our goal is to help players master the game starting with the basics and also to be better prepared for their pre-season.
