The winter clinic is once again being held at Fulcrum Sportsplex (formerly Pinelands Sports Center).  The clinic is geared toward skills we will evaluate at try-outs at the end of February.  The clinics will run on Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  The first session will be 1st/2nd and 3rd/4th from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.  The next session will run from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for 5th/6th and 7th/8th age groups.  Dates for the Clinic are 1/5, 1/19, 1/26, 2/2, 2/16 and 2/23.

Dates for Evaluation to Follow.

The SJYLAX league has made changes to team breakdowns and we are returning to Grade Divisions for teams this year. The Scoopers Division will be K/1st and 1st/2nd.  Newer 1st Graders will play in the younger Division and more experienced 1st Graders will play in the older Division.  Other Grade breakdowns are 3rd/4th, 5th/6th and 7th/8th.  Teams will begin practices in early March (weather permitting).  The season will begin Friday, March 22.  The 5th/6th A team and both 7th/8th teams play on Friday nights and Saturdays.  All other teams play round robins matches on Saturdays.  Teams will have 2-3 practices per week depending on the age level.

The K/1st and 1st/2nd teams will likely start practicing in later March as their season is structured differently. Games for these divisions will begin mid April.  

 Benefits of Renegades Lacrosse

 

The overriding focus of the Spring Season for Renegades lacrosse is to develop the individual skills and team play for all of our players.  Often times, programs are so concerned with winning that they lose sight of player development.  This is a critical mistake that coaches, parents and players can overlook.  The reality is that if player development is ignored at the youth level, bad habits will take root and eventually catch up to the player.  This is most notable in club teams that essentially rely on one or two players to do all the work while the other players stand by watching.  While this make be successful at a young age due to the accelerated athleticism of certain players, this will eventually catch up to those players as teams begin to game plan and eliminate one dimensional teams.  Furthermore, the players who are often excluded from the run of play do not progress as they should, and only later on, realize this fact.  That will not happen with Renegades Lacrosse.  If the players commit themselves to practice, games and listening to their coaches,there is no doubt that player will make substantial progress as a player and teammate.  

Each player can then take that development to their summer tournament teams if they decide to take that next step.  Since these summer teams focus on tournament play, emphasis is less on player development and more on team cohesion.  Summer teams can be a great experience in taking that next step while not sacrificing player development during the Spring Season.
