November Blog Post

Student Athletes,

Before we head into the weight room to train for box-lacrosse season, you should now be in a position to reflect on your progress from throughout the year.

So, the coaches would like you to write, in three short paragraphs, about this year’s performance:

1. In the academy so far, tell us what you have enjoyed about your development. Think about a part of your game and then write about how the academy has helped you to better understand/play your game.

2. In the academy so far, tell us what you have struggled with in your development. Think about a part of your game and then write about how the academy has pushed you to understand/play your game better.

3. What part of your physical stature would make your game better? Our game is a very physical one, what part of your fitness do you need to improve before the start of box lacrosse season next year?

Consider your responses and submit before the end of class today.

November Grow to Game; Claremont’s Spartan Shootout

Hello Parents and Students of Delta’s Lacrosse Academy,

First, we are headed to the island for a play day on Nov 4.  Please arrive at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal for 6:15am.  Pick up from the same ferry terminal should run at 4:45pm, since we are returning on the 3:00pm boat.  The students are responsible for their own lunch.

Second, the schedule is out for Claremont’s Spartan Shootout.  Please find it attached here: spartan-shootout-2016-and-schedule.  Again, we will be taking the 7:00am ferry on Nov 25.  Please arrive at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal for 6:15am.  Pick up from the ferry terminal should be on Saturday Nov 26 at roughly 6:30pm, since we will take the 5pm boat.

If you have any questions regarding either of these trips, do not hesitate to email me.  Thank you all for your continued support.

 

Sincerely,

 

Coach Neumann

Growth for Games: October’s Blog Post

Student athletes,

Athletes divide their growth into three specific categories:

  1. Their physical fitness
  2. Their skill preparation
  3. Their mental preparation

Over the past two months we have spent a tremendous amount of academy time working on categories one and two, but we have talked about number three very little.  Now it is time to get our heads into what we do so we can start to do it better.

In the following assignment, please reflect and think about the steps that you will take to develop your athleticism.

Assignment:

In one or two strong paragraphs, answer this question:

What am I as an athlete and what am I willing to do to improve what I already am?

Please ensure that your response to this blog is submitted to Coach Neumann by Nov. 6 at 10:00pm

Sincerely,

 

Coach Neumann
