The summer skills curriculum is specified to refresh each player’s enthusiasm to play the game of lacrosse and prevent “game drain.” Game drain is prevalent in players burned out from the spring lacrosse season, school year and the grind of getting better every day (GBE).
Trashcan Lacrosse Camps and the summer skills curriculum account for the factors that lead to game drain. The Trashcan camp experience integrates a memorable camp experience and the training to build upon the previous spring’s accomplishments.
The Trashcan Lacrosse Skill Development Curriculum (SDC) is built around a Play Fast drill book, box infusion, progression drills and the game of Trashcan Lacrosse: the dynamic 2v2 pick-up game that focuses on playing fast and mastering the art of the 2v1. Trashcan’s popularity has skyrocketed by more than doubling in attendance in the past year.
We introduce a wide range of basic to advanced concepts, add progressive layers of difficulty, then ask players to be creative in applying them during small team games and King of the Can tournaments. We want the players to develop their game and have fun doing it!
