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.

Fall training is appropriate for junior players from 3rd to 8th grade and the cost will be $100 per player. Times have been announced: 3/4th grade 8a.m.-9a.m., 5/6th grade 9a.m.-10a.m. and 7/8th grade 10:30a.m.-12p.m.

"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.
