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!

 

T3 Lacrosse Coaches, Players and Alumni Come Together For T3 Elite Day

T3 Lacrosse has grown over the years to cover 7 regions throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York, but the family atmosphere that existed on day one is still alive and well today.  In order to bring the family together, a program called T3 Elite Day was created. All regions of players, families, coaches and alumni come together on T3 Elite Day to watch a high level college women’s lacrosse game. It’s a great way for young players to experience what lacrosse looks like at the highest level and they get to play on the field at halftime for a truly exciting experience! At the end of each game the home team signs autographs for the T3 Elite players as a memento of the event.  

The first game of the T3 Elite Day program was between Stonybrook and Princeton at Princeton University. The home team took the win by one goal with only two minutes remaining. Next, T3 Lacrosse travelled to New Brunswick, NJ to see #2 ranked Maryland Lacrosse play Rutgers University. It is always exciting to watch and learn from some of the best women’s lacrosse players in the country!

Danielle Bay, T3’s West Regional Director, West and Central Recruiting Coordinator, and Director of Player Development who spearheaded the T3 Elite Day program, reflected on this first year event.  “T3 Elite Day is a great way for T3 Lacrosse players from different regions to get together, make new friends, learn more about college lacrosse, and watch great competition. Both events had a great turn out, and I am excited to go to more games in the future!”  T3 Lacrosse would like to thank Princeton University and Rutgers University for hosting T3 Lacrosse. We hope to return for another enriching experience in the near future!
