Offered as a one-week or two-week immersion program, players are introduced to the specific language and distinctive features of the indoor game. Exploring the dynamics of the boards and glass; smaller NLL-sized goals; and goalies with NLL-certified goalie equipment, and using the Alley System as the foundation, players are taught individual stick handling skills such as passing, catching, cradling, shooting and faking in tight situations – the essence of playing indoor (box) lacrosse successfully. Offensively, players are exposed to the two-man and three-man pick and screen series, building up to 4-on-4 and 5-on-5 offensive strategies and tactics. The skills, techniques, and communication requirements for defending successfully against indoor (box) offenses are taught extensively. The high-speed transition game that characterizes indoor (box) lacrosse is covered including offense-to-defense and defense-to-offense patterns and approaches. All players in the program also receive expert training at IMG Academy’s world-renowned Athletic and Personal Development Center where each player will elevate their strength, speed, agility, and power.
