Mondays and Wednesday – 6:00-7:00pm
Fall Season: Players should expect one practice per week, a tournament weekend at McKinney’s Turlaxin’ event at the end of October and perhaps an additional game or two.
Spring Season: Players should expect two practices per week, 8-12 games and 1-3 playday or tournament weekends.
Focus: Continue focus on fun and team. Skills become more important.
Observations: At this level, you start to see wider spread in experience, skill, athleticism. Players become more aware of relative limitations. And the reality that the game requires work begins to dawn on them, though is not overly discouraging.
Program Development Track:
– Understand 7v7, 8m and 12m
– Pass-move concept
