The New and Improved Sentry Lacrosse Program
At Sentry Lacrosse we structure our program differently than any other team in Texas.
At Sentry, we have options for all of our players that allow them to play as little or as much lacrosse as they desire. Our “year round program” is the basic club lacrosse season that we have offered in the past. From here, our players may then join our elite “Blue Chip” teams, our supplemental travel teams, our fall skills program, and spring bantam program (age permitting).
Commitment: While we offer many programs and chances for players to play, we expect all players fulfill their commitment to each team they play for. Players must attend every practice and game unless there is a family emergency or personal illness. (This applies to all travel teams and tournaments)
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.
Streamlined offensive and defensive schemes, concepts and drills throughout every team: Players will advance within the system as they move through the Sentry program. Every year players will learn more advanced plays and concepts, building on the previous season.
1st & 2nd graders will work on basic concepts, stick skills, and technique. We will introduce offensive and defensive concepts and unsettled situations.
3rd & 4th graders will learn complex 1-3-2 offensive sets with multiple looks generated off the dodge and off ball movement (cuts). Defense will focus on crease slide packages and positioning on and off the ball. Unsettled situations will be continuously drilled since this is the back bone of any good offense and defense.
5th- 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 4v3, 5v4, and 6v5 situations as well as multiple riding sets and clearing patterns. Defense will be expected to learn multiple schemes, slide packages and master unsettled situations.
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.
