ACS Select Academy Summer


ACS Select Lacrosse Academy Teams

The Select Lacrosse Academy is part of our Travel Lacrosse program and was created to offer players the opportunity to compete on a team, participate in engaging practices during the week, and attend regional tournaments.

 

For the Summer of 2019 we will open registration for two ACS Select Academy Teams:

25/26 Select Academy (i.e. current 5th/6th graders)

27/28 Select Academy (i.e. current 3rd/4th graders)

 

We are looking for motivated players to fill these two teams and further their lacrosse development. There will not be a tryout or evaluation for ACS Academy Teams which we feel is appropriate for our community, in line with our philosophy and the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM). According to the LADM, 11-14 year old players are in the “Emerging Competition” stage of development.  “This is the stage in which we make or break the athlete; when children choose to continue participation in the sport. This is the time for developing strong technical skills and is the dawning of tactical awareness. Players are also introduced to concepts like mental preparation, goal setting, and coping with winning and losing. Players learn advanced technical skills and position-specific techniques. The major focus is on applying skills, strategies and tactics from practice to competitive situations. Athletes participate in several sports throughout the year or in a variety of physical activities.” To read more about the LADM please visit Lacrosse Athlete Development Model.

 

Registration is open to any female athlete in those graduating classes willing to commit to the team. Players must have a current US Lacrosse Membership and some experience playing lacrosse (should your daughter not have any experience but is interested in the Academy team please contact [email protected]).
