Tournament Season Is Here, Are You Ready?

Summertime and the Laxin’ is Easy! Tournament season has arrived and will fly by before you know it.  In order to make the most of your time on and off the field, T3 Lacrosse Recruiting Coordinator Suzie Friedrich has put together her tips and tricks for a successful summer season.
1. Get those emails written at the beginning of the week so you’re not doing it last minute. College coaches appreciate emails early so they can plan their weekend (which fields to go to and who they’re watching).  As the week goes on, your focus should be on your game and not in the fact that your procrastination is looming over your head!
2. Socks. Extra socks. You will play better if your feet are comfortable.  You never know what the weather is going to do or what condition the fields might be in. If you have a pair dry socks to put on for each game, your feet will thank you later!  If your shoes are wet, shove a few newspaper pages into each one and leave them over night. The newspaper draws the water out and you’ll be good to go in the morning.
3. Get out of your comfort zone and meet some new people. When you walk onto the field, introduce yourself to your opponent. Maybe ask her where she goes to school, what colleges she’s interested in, etc. The lacrosse world is small…you might end up seeing her at a camp, playing against her in another tournament, realize you have mutual friends, or maybe even play together in college someday! You will also know her name so when her teammates say it, you’ll be ready to defend her!
4. Learn something interesting about each person on your team. Now don’t try to do this all in the first weekend! During your off time, spend it with someone on your team you don’t know all that well. Ask fun questions. The team that knows each other well and has great chemistry will usually win. (Hint…put your phones away every now and then and just enjoy the moments)
5. Shake it off and move on to the next play. You might feel like you’re under pressure to be perfect in front of college coaches.  NEWS FLASH! You’re not perfect! If something doesn’t go your way, let it go and move on to the next play. Coaches like to see how you react after a bad call or a mistake. If you can move on and attack the next moment, you’ll get bonus points.
6. Say thank you. Thank those who are giving you this awesome opportunity. Your parents, your coaches, a sibling that got dragged kicking and screaming to your games.  An attitude of gratitude!
7. Have fun! Nothing better than laxin’ with your friends all summer. Work hard, play hard!

Tips and Tricks to Optimize Your Game In The Rain

The forecast says it’s going to rain, but you have a big game tomorrow, what to do?! Well, T3 Elite Director of Player Development, Julia Braun has put together 5 tips for playing in the rain to help you get prepared and optimize your time on the field.

     As long as there is no thunder or lightning, lacrosse games will be played in the rain, but besides putting on your trusty cleats to play in grass and mud and donning your best water resistant jacket under your uniform/pinney, How can you play well?

  1. Don’t pull your strings super tight because your stick bagged out when it got wet. Your pocket turned into a bag and now it’s illegal. Before you tighten ALL of your strings, try just tightening the shooting strings and the sidewall strings. Those are the parts that give your pocket its shape and depth. Afterward: Don’t stick it somewhere and forget about it. Either take a hair dryer to your pocket or stuff some newspapers in it, otherwise your stick will be a brick wall the next dry day.
  2. Focus on your footwork. If you stay low, especially on defense, keep some bend in the knee and really work on breaking down your footwork, you’ll be much less likely to slide
  3. Shoot Low. If you are on grass the ball will skip unpredictably off the wetness of the grass. If you are in mud, the same will happen, but too hard and it will get stuck in the mud!
  4. Let your hair get wet. Hoods pulled under your goggles limit visibility and can be dangerous. Put your hood down, dig deep and play with guts.
  5. Have fun. It will be cooler so you can run longer without the heat slowing you down. Everybody is playing in the same conditions. The ball will stay in your stick better and you can really play some nice lacrosse in the rain.

A Look Back on Queen of the Mount

As we gear up for YouthFest this Sunday, April 14th, we reflect on our first event of the spring season: Queen of the Mount. T3 Lacrosse Digital Marketing Coordinator Blaire Nathanson asked coaches, players and parents that attended Queen of the Mount what they thought of the event and the responses were overwhelmingly positive. Noel Ciocon, coach of the Young Guns 5th/6th grade team, stated, “Queen of the Mount was a fun event; great way for the girls to get rust off their sticks and get ready for the spring season.”  

Danielle Ives, first time T3 event attendee, coached the Lady Bulldogs 7th/8th grade squad.  Coaches Ives was asked what she is excited for in the upcoming lacrosse season.

“I’m excited about the playing part, a little nervous about the changes in the rules, including self start. This tournament has been great because it’s teaching them the new rules that I’d have to reteach them if they didn’t know, self start and the new sphere. And I have a lot of new players so this is a good way to get your feet wet before our games start.”  

Blaire spoke with the 3rd/4th Division Champions, the Junior Lions, located in Hunterdon County. Coach Hisner has attended T3 Events in the past and described the experience she’s had. “It’s just so much fun for the girls…well organized and good facilities.”Just a few short days until YouthFest in Basking Ridge, NJ. Look forward to seeing some Queen of the Mount participants and new faces! Look out for the schedule coming soon and check out the stations for the 2019 Lax Combine at YouthFest here!
