The frequency of practices (3 Xs per week) is unmatched by any other summer program. We feel that the consistency and frequency of practices and training is ultimately the most important ingredient to your child’s lacrosse development. This practice schedule will maximize players development by immersing athletes in our high paced, developmental curriculum developed over the years by Coach Kacy Small.
Tournaments: Three 1 – 2 day weekend tournaments. Tournaments allow us to compete against other teams and apply what we are preaching in drills at practice in game scenarios.
Each team will have two coaches minimum, one offensive coach and one defensive coach. Coaches are current / former college lacrosse players who have coaching experience and are hand picked by program Owner / Founder Kacy Small. Each team follows a curriculum that has been developed over the past decade by Coach Small.
Coach Small is the current Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator at The Hill School (2010 to present) that finished the 2014 season last year with a 1 goal loss to Episcopal Academy in the Inter AC Challenge in the quarter final round.
Coach Small has been a speaker / presenter at the US Lacrosse National Convention in 2015 and 2013.
Coach Small competed in the 2015 FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Denver last summer as Captain of the Thailand National Lacrosse Team where he was coached by Head Coach Dylan Sheridan (former defensive coordinator at University of Denver and Princeton / current Head Coach at Cleveland State (Division 1)).
Coach Small prides himself on being a student and teacher of the game and draws from each of these experiences to create an always evolving curriculum that is unique to 380 Lacrosse. Coach Small understands what skills and concepts todays players need to understand in order play in a High School Varsity or collegiate system, and uses that as the focus of our curriculum.
