Notes from Coach AJ Mulvey
     Our very own Lacrosse Fiend, Coach AJ Mulvey, put together some musings on all things lacrosse that he wanted to share with our youth players.
     It's a bit of a long read but really very fun with some great/links/videos - we are so lucky to have AJ and his enthusiasm a part of our program and hope your player enjoys this compilation half as much as we did!     - FYL Board

Hi there,

Hard to believe the 1st round of the NCAA Lacrosse Tournament is over!

The Canadian 2-man game influence is everywhere! Picking all over the field – On-Ball Picks, Off-Ball Screens and it is so much fun to watch.

Penn State scored 25 GOALS last Sunday!

Like High Scoring Games?

Don’t miss Loyola’s Pat Spencer & Penn State’s Grant Ament square off this Sunday for what could determine the winner of the Tewaaraton Award – Lacrosse’s Heisman Trophy.

The Return of Notre Dame’s Ryder Garnsey

One of the most creative lacrosse players in the country is back!! Ryder missed this season because he was Academically Ineligible.

Did You Hear That??

One of the BEST lacrosse players in the country, was NOT allowed to play his senior year because he did not get the grades!

Similar rules apply at FHS and other area schools. Classroom First, Sports Second!

 

Looking for some Inspiration?

Ryder is NOT the Fastest or Strongest and is actually kind of small but try telling him that! Watch the Wolfeboro, NH native fly through the air with a Back Handed Flip Goal against Hopkins last weekend.

The “Street Baller” Ryder Garnsey is Back!

As awesome as it is to watch Ryder score his ability to PASS & setup his teammates his what makes him such a dynamic player.

Top 5 Things To Make Time For This Summer

  1. Wall Ball
  2. Shoot On A Goalie
  3. Do 1v1’s
  4. Play Pick Up Games
  5. Club Lacrosse**

**Notice I put Club Lacrosse last.

I’m not knocking Club Lacrosse. I am knocking the amount of REPS produced by Club Lacrosse vs Pick Up Games.

If you’re paying all that money for Club Lacrosse PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE

  • Hit the Wall 
  • Play Pick Up Lacrosse

Parents back me up here! It’s your money. Make a deal, “I’ll pay for club lacrosse, if you promise to play Wall Ball!!!”

Wall Ball - No Wall / Throw Back? I used tennis balls on my parents’ garage & would even use the basement cement wall – ceiling wasn’t high enough so I had to kneel on one knee. Full Disclosure – I did break a few windows.

Pick Up / Backyard Lacrosse -  No net, no problem… “back in the day” we would flip over a garbage can and do 1 on 1’s / mini games with tennis balls.

Be Creative – everyone can practice scooping ground balls – scoop and spin – scoop and pass to a buddy. Practice switching hands. BE CREATIVE!!

Club vs Pick Up

  • Statistical Breakdown of Club vs Pick Up
  • Great Video of Pick Up Games (at the bottom of Jamie’s lacrosse blog)

Jamie Munro’s Lacrosse Blog: https://www.jm3sports.com/blog/a-lacrosse-weekend-4-20-19

“Players don't get better at lacrosse at tourneys and showcases because they simply do not get enough touches!  Look at the stats below from two games in a recruiting tourney.  Note: this kid is one of the best kids on the team and a definite D1 prospect.  A grand total of 26 touches in two games

Interestingly, I did a statistical breakdown of one of my JM3 Athletes playing a 3v3 Pick Up Game.  

In 37 minutes, he had 77 touches, 24 shots, 16 ground balls, and 18 dodges.

Mark my words folks, the pick up game is the best development model and the funny thing is hardly anyone leverages the power of this FREE activity.”

It’s not all about the boys! Think you got solid stick skills?

Watch Northwestern’s Salena Lasota pull off these moves & think about how much skill is needed to do all these moves WITHOUT A POCKET!

Salena is hands down one of the best lacrosse players in the country, regardless of gender. Salena & Northwestern take on Syracuse this Saturday at 2pm.

Framingham Is A Hockey Town?? People keep telling me, “Framingham is a hockey town!” Ok that’s cool, for all those hockey players out there, here is a video for you…

If you get anything out of this email it should be…

  • Keep Your Stick in Your Hand!
  • Be Creative!

 

Thanks, Coach AJ

Link to order uniforms

Uniforms are reusable for year to year.  

Kindergarteners do not have to have a uniform but we've found most kids are very happy to have at least a uniform pinney with room to grow.

Voluneers!

We have grown over the years into a program which we are all proud. We have always made our program about community first and in this day and age, we feel this is necessary. We involve all of our families and welcome feedback to improve your experience.

Having said this, our program does not run without you. First of all, thank you to all that have volunteered in the past and continue to do so. Second, "YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT LACROSSE TO BE INVOLVED!" Our coaches get trained. And we pay for it. We are hiring experts to devise practice plans, so none of us will show up empty handed. So please volunteer. Personally, I've been doing this for 16 years at every level. I love it more that my kids are no longer in the program. We have many coaches who do this, so I am not alone. But if we are willing to do this when our kids are out of the program, there is no reason you can't take on a small role as coach, team parent, event coordinator, etc... Even something as small as name and number cards for the parents.

 

I can't wait to see you all at indoor and as always, call if you need anything.
