More Than Lacrosse Players - Strength & Speed Work is Paying Off!
The Academy Teams put in max effort at the Winter Bystol Sessions. Kudos to the Bystol team for their dedication to the players all winter long and for pushing our guys; the training was dynamic and a great compliment to our winter season goals of developing better overall athletes.
The Western Suburbs worked extremely hard all Winter long at the Dick Cook Speed & Agility facility. Overall we have seen a noticeable improvement week to week in balance, body awareness, communication, and even leadership! Thank you to the Dick Cook Team! Keep Working! Keep Grinding!
President’s Day Tournament Action!
Select Programs Wrapping Up the Winter Season with Indoor Competition!
The Northern & Western Suburb Select Programs took advantage of the three day weekend with some rapid fire 7v7 tournament action! High School Teams competed tough at the Lacrosse America ICE-Breaker Tournament in a very competitive high school division. These boys have been working very hard all Winter and are ready for High School Tryouts! The Youth Select Teams competed in the US Lax Presidents Day Tournament in West Dundee. It was great for the boys to play tough competition and always fun to go toe to toe in a fast paced tight spaced indoor event! Congrats to our U12 Western Suburb Team on bringing home some more Championship Hardware! We keep getting better with each passing event and we are excited for the Summer Season Ahead!
Good Luck to all our Boys High School Players at Tryouts Next Week!
Thank You Seniors! We want to thank all of our seniors for their hard work and commitment over the years! We are thrilled to watch everyone play this Spring! Team ONE will represent over 70 high school programs throughout Illinois and we couldn’t be more proud! Good Luck at Tryouts Everyone!
Coach Nate Marsh, What advice do you have for the hs players going into tryouts?
Video: Drill of the Season 3 v 2 Boomerang
It’s no secret that at Team ONE we love small spaces, embracing contact and making good decisions on the field. 3 v 2 Boomerang is a drill inspired by all three of those. A standard 3 v 2 with a trailer, the last person who touches the ball must run around a bucket at the top of the playing field. As the last touch happens, the offensive team throws 3 passes to start the drill. It’s a race, can the O move the ball quickly and efficiently, they take advantage of a 3v2 situation, if they’re too slow with the ball, the D has time to recover and play 3v3. Ball movement is important for the offense, but equally important to make good decisions under the pressure of a trailing defensemen make for a fast paced fun drill that gets everyone involved!
Coach Farrell Quote of the Month -
‘Why was I the best? What was my secret? I never got bored with the basics’ - Kobe Bryant
Many of us get excited by the new training techniques, or the Lyle Thompson’s of the world, throwing backhand shots and passes. Both effective and a ton of fun to watch! But many don’t realize, those skills took time, effort and practice to be able to roll out in a competitive scenario. The ‘basics’ can be debated in a game as creative as lacrosse, but the fact holds true that regardless of what you may concern basics, or skills, need to be practiced, over and over, in order for them to be useful tools in your toolbox. Repetition is the key to success, and while it may seem boring to repeat the same drill or skill over and over again, having a successful lacrosse career will be defined by your ability to practice those skills, day in and day out, without getting bored.
