Lacrosse is primarily a lateral based sport. The keys for these athletes are great footwork, foot speed, explosiveness, agility, quickness, balance, core strength & flexibility. The lacrosse industry for both girls and boys is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation, but yet training for the sport is still behind. Here at Revolution Athletics we are ahead of the curve, specializing in footwork and cutting techniques. We teach our athletes how to make two legged cuts, single leg cuts (split and roll dodge) and hips and bending (rolling around the crease and fast breaks). We believe in educating our athletes on the proper change of direction techniques, as well as educating our athletes when these different types of cuts are used in the games. Our focus on balance and stability training helps to improve reaction time for both offensive and defensive players.
Our athletes are also taught the importance of flexibility and focus on teaching static stretching to be used after workouts, practices and games.
Our speed and strength programs are designed and adjusted based upon the sport of lacrosse. More rotational based movements are incorporated into the program along with a heavy emphasis on lateral strength workouts.

Our method of training incorporates 3 different modalities; Speed & Agility, Strength, and Recovery. Combining these 3 methods during athletes off season allows them to see steady improvement and avoid training plateaus throughout the training cycle. However, if an athlete is in season there is an emphasis on Strength and Flexibility giving them the best opportunity to play at the top of their game toward the end of the season.
