About 802 Lacrosse
The 802 Lacrosse Difference
The 802 Lacrosse model is focused on developing our players throughout the year with practices, clinics, small group skill sessions, and highly competitive tournaments in order to maximize our potential. With roughly 40 – 60+ practices depending on the program and highly informative clinic sessions the 802 model focuses on developing our players while building strong cohesive teams. Bottom line, in order to compete and get our players recruited, our teams have to be top notch and we achieve this through our training regiment.
The main mission of 802 lacrosse is to work with the committed lacrosse player and provide world class coaching in a team environment to provide all players with an enhanced lacrosse IQ and skill set. It is our goal to have the best club team in New England while traveling to compete against other premier club lacrosse teams nationwide. As lacrosse continues to grow, the club season has never been more crucial and important for player growth.
The Multi-Sport Athlete
We are also very strong believers of the multi-sport athlete and we realize the enormous importance of playing multiple sports as well as spring town NVYLL and High School teams. The vast majority of our student-athletes are two-sport+ athletes and we strongly encourage as well as schedule practices and tournaments accordingly. We believe players should do as many activities throughout the year they can manage and have fun doing. In terms of commitment we feel that whatever activity / season it is that should be a players first priority if the choose. Better athletes equal better lacrosse players.
While the tournaments are fun, and a great time to showcase your abilities, the real work comes in practice with some of Vermont’s best instructors to become the best player you can be. It doesn’t matter if you are a 2nd or 3rd grader ready to take lacrosse more seriously, or a Division 1 scholarship prospect — it all starts with sound fundamentals and good solid fun! From our winter sessions to our weekly summer practices, we emphasize not only the lacrosse aspect, but everything it takes to succeed as a lacrosse player; leadership, character, and the importance of being a student athlete.
