CONNECTICUT LOCATION MANAGER
The sport of lacrosse has been a part of my life for 17 years and has been the catalyst to some of my best friendships. The teamwork and individual performance of the game help you be the best person you can be, in which will help you in all aspects of life. Seeing the growth of this game since when I first started has been an absolute pleasure to watch and be apart of.
While HQ’d at 156 Macintosh Way in Southington, we have access to numerous facilities around the area. For specifics, please contact Nick, or your assigned coach, prior to your session to confirm the location.
For your private lacrosse lessons in Connecticut, all you will need is your stick, helmet & gloves, cleats, and a water bottle, unless told otherwise. In the event that you are training in a mini-group, you should bring all of your equipment in case live reps are carried out. With that, it is always best to be fully prepared with all of your equipment.
The lacrosse community is one like no other. Lacrosse has a way of connecting its players, coaches, and fans in a way that other sports will never compare to. Athletes United Lacrosse Training has harnessed the power of the lacrosse community to connect the best lacrosse trainers with student athletes who want to continue to build their games up to the next level. Athletes United started with one player who wanted to improve their game, and in the past 9 years over 1,000 student athletes have been trained by the Athletes United Lacrosse staff.
Our offensive sessions are very much focused on shooting, footwork, lacrosse IQ, dodging, off-ball movement, and passing. We believe in an approach where our players will always have a solution to what they are seeing on the field in front of them. By training our players in a one-on-one or small group setting, we are able to talk through different scenarios and help our players to feel comfortable whenever the ball is in their stick.
Defensive sessions are extremely geared towards various lacrosse IQ scenarios, footwork, stickwork, and positioning. Our defensive coaches make sure to thoroughly explain the different approaches on the field, as well as how to position themselves based on different game situations. Our staff knows that defense is by far the most difficult position to play and to train, so we break down the game to the smallest parts of it.
Our goalie sessions are broken down to the very foundation of playing the position. With a focus on footwork, hand-eye coordination, positioning, and stickwork, our goalie coaches make sure to make our goalies feel comfortable no matter what the situation is in front of them. The Athletes United Lacrosse staff also focuses on communication with our goalies as it is such a huge part of the success of a goalie and the entire defense.
Our FOGO sessions take into consideration every contributing factor to success at the Faceoff X. That includes core strength, grip strength, balance, footwork, technique, and hand speed. We put our faceoff guys in the best possible position by not only improving position specific strength and footwork, but also by teaching them the best possible approach to every possible scenario after the whistle blows.
