At Sentry Lacrosse we structure our program differently than any other team in Texas. We want the girls to have the opportunity to play lacrosse 12 months out of the year. We strive on helping lacrosse players take their game to the next level.
At Sentry, we want our players and parents to be a part of something bigger than a lacrosse program. We take pride in sportsmanship and teaching our players the right way to compete. Our coaches are leaders and set the right example for our entire program.
2012-2013 Sentry Focus
More advanced offensive and defensive concepts: We push our players to learn more advanced concepts and schemes than they have previously been exposed to. They must focus at practice, work on stick work outside of practice, and study plays in order to keep up.
Players will quickly advance through the Sentry program as they move up each year.
Sentry Girls Program:
1st to 4th graders will work on basic concepts, stick skills, and technique. We will introduce offensive and defensive concepts and settled and unsettled offensive and defensive situations.
5th & 6th graders will be expected to learn offensive and defensive sets. They will start to learn how to anticipate and move off the ball. They will master all dodges to help their individual game and they will learn how to play team offense and team defense.
7th & 8th graders will be expected to learn multiple offensive sets generating looks from different areas on the filed and read teammates to determine appropriate off ball movement and cuts. Players will be expected to master man-up situations as well as man-down situations. Players will understand help defense as well as options off a motion offense giving them the freedom to work off the ball.
High school players will be taught to utilize their skills within a team system in order to best showcase their individual talent. At the High School level our players are focused on recruiting and we help them work with the team to effectively present their skills to college coaches and scouts. Practices will be tailored to helping our players improve their individual skills in order to help the team as a whole. Team concepts and game-like drills will be the focus.
