3rd Annual Summer Skills Academy
Each Summer Skills Academy session features 45 minutes of up-tempo training followed by 45 minutes of action packed 7v7 league play. During the training portion of Summer Skills, Coach Harnett and staff train players in a carefully scripted series of individual player development, positional development, and competitive team play skill set training progressions. Following each training period, Coach Harnett and his staff then direct controlled scrimmages where learning and training meet live play and competition in a proven cadence.
G7A welcomes and accommodates all skill levels from beginner to advanced, entering grades 4-12. Players will train and compete in focused groups based on their grade division and level of play to ensure a high standard of quality in each of the following areas: lacrosse education, meaningful repetitions, field direction, continuity of training/play, individual player attention, and player safety.
Our goal is to help build the complete player, distinctly, while teaching the modern fundamentals of our game as a spring board to future success. Entering the 8th summer of directing his Summer Skills program model between Florida and Ohio, Coach Harnett considers this program to be by far the most important and impactful program he offers.
G7A Summer Skills Academy boasts the top-flight caliber of instruction, training, coaching, and field direction akin to national level elite club programs in the disciplines of core competency acquisition, modern player development, and competitive team play/IQ… for all athletes regardless of club experience or club participation. Summer Skills welcomes all players, club and non-club, from all areas, organizations, and teams.
Summer Skills sessions will be held on Monday’s 7/6, 7/13, 7/20, 7/27, 8/3, 8/10. Please see the final time slots by player grade level for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year below:
