Girls Lacrosse Program Structure
IMG Academy girl’s lacrosse program offers a well-rounded, dynamic environment for student-athletes to achieve their full potential not only on the field, but in the classroom and in life. Student-athletes will improve upon key fundamentals such as shooting and passing, player movements, such as change of speed and direction, game strategies and teamwork, and formations developed within IMG lacrosse’s overall methodology.
IMG’s lacrosse coaches instruct players to control the tempo of the game and play smart and aggressive while focusing on spacing, the pace of the game, and staying on the offense to create scoring opportunities in pressure situations. The girls program competes against nationally-credited opponents that challenge each student-athlete both individually and as a part of the team.
The program also places a significant emphasis on academics and college placement. Each student-athlete has a support system around them inclusive of lacrosse coaches, strength and conditioning coach, athletic trainers, teachers, college advisors, and more to aid in the developmental process that includes:
- An individual lacrosse developmental plan
- A team tactical periodization plan
- An individual tactical periodization plan
- An athletic and Academy personal development plan
Girls lacrosse student-athletes will also enjoy social engagements, such as Homecoming and Prom, as well as weekly school-wide activities outside of sport, and IMG Academy also offers a wide variety of student clubs geared towards various interest levels.
