Training

Harvest offers year-round lacrosse training programs for all players, regardless of other club or school team affiliations. We provide training for all grades, positions and skill levels. Our unique player to coach ratio allows for accelerated player development and higher performance.

About Training

When you enroll in one of our programs, you join a class that is loaded with enthusiastic and disciplined players seeking to become the best they can be on and off of the lacrosse field. In a positive environment, players are systematically trained and educated.

Each program has a set, progressional curriculum designed by our staff, which will challenge the individuals to ensure maximum success. The programs' intensity will be tailored to each group of players according to age and skill level. We will work on the athlete’s ability to learn and master new movement patterns while focusing on the individual skills that need the most attention.

Most of our athletes compete on multiple different teams and at many different types of events or games throughout the year. Therefore, they have no specific time to peak and instead they need to perform at a high level all year long.
