Madison High School Lacrosse Coach Announces Fall Training Schedule for Madison Junior Players

MADISON, NJ - In a letter to parents and players, Madison High School Head Lacrosse Coach Bryan Armstrong wrote this week, "It is with great pleasure that I reach out to you with the opportunity to help shape the future of Madison Junior Lacrosse. For 25 years, MJL has been strengthened through a love for the game that surpasses that of many towns in Northern N.J.  Equipping young athletes with practices to hone their skills, mentors to lead them, and encouraging sportsmanship has always been paramount. It's now time to bring this model to another level."

Beginning Sunday September 17th, running for eight weeks Armstrong and his staff will run grade and skill specific sessions at Ted Monica Field.

"Our love for the game coupled with our first state championship at the High School level presents the Madison HS staff, along with the MJL Board, an opportunity to provide an off season plan that will not only benefit individual success but also create program-wide results. Our focus will be to provide ability based instruction to all athletes, experienced and novice, through skill relevant training. Our model will focus on small group and position specific training, so that all athletes with a passion for the sport can grow at the appropriate pace," Armstrong wrote.

"Our off season training sessions will be slotted independent of other recreation athletic opportunities. We encourage athletes to take part in multiple sports, but also want young athletes to have a stick in their hands all year. With the commitment to this mission Dodger Lacrosse will benefit for years to come. Young athletes will be provided with the vision, tools, mentality and passion for future success in a fun age-appropriate environment," Armstrong added.
