Practice In The Off-season

The concept is to provide a regular space, coordinate drills/activities, and allow competitive players to work with one another collaboratively. The idea is to have some organization (like a practice), but with more of a chance to work on and develop individual skills.

Each week we will establish an agenda, and give high level instruction as to the focal points & the method of execution. Much of the work will be done in small groups that can focus on high reps, and sharing pointers and feedback.

Sessions will focus on individual skills, techniques, and mechanics – things that you don’t get easily from playing league or training on your own.

THIS IS NOT A CLINIC. Do not expect the leaders to be ‘coaches’, or to be responsible for your individual learning or development. Rather, we are creating a structure and space so that you can work on your own game with your peers.

What To Expect

  • Listen, share, work hard, and otherwise contribute to a good learning environment.
  • Be proactively introspective about what you can use help on or want to focus on.
  • Leave your ego behind – both to enhance your understanding of your own game, as well as to respect the opinion & insights of others

While the format may very well change, below is a sample structure. We will establish a consistent format each week.

20 min: Warmup & agility/plyo
10 min: Sprint / high intensity
60 min: 2-3 drills
20 min: Game scenario (e.g. scrimmage, 3 on 3, something game-like to highlight concepts of day)
10 min: throwing focus

While we would love to be able to offer this to anyone who is interested, space is limited. Additionally, since this is a collaborative session, we want to group people into as similar a level as possible (some combination of skill level, experience, & athleticism).

As such, we will have a committee that will evaluate and select from the people who register, and from there will subdivide into a 1st and 2nd group.
