Announcing GFLA's new Agility and Speed Training with the renowned Coach Tee!
This is such a valuable training for both health and success that we encourage all players to register and participate.
We are very, very lucky to have Coach Tee (former Jacksonville Jaguar!) doing the training to get the kids in shape for the season through his award-winning style (getting kids to push their limits and improve, while at the same time, keeping a positive atmosphere the kids love!)
Areas of Importance:
1) Speed - in this sport, this is an essential part of the game (all kids love to speed past their opponent! :) )
2) Agility - so important for dodges and defense
3) Injury Prevention - as important as any other elements, with proper training like this, they will develop more supporting muscle and strength to keep them safe this season.
Two Age Groups to customize training - in order to allow Coach Tee to customize the training that's most appropriate, we will be splitting the training into two groups, based on age. Training will also be co-ed, which often makes extra fun for relays and making sure they work their hardest!
Boys 10U and under and Girls 3/4 and under will be in one group and Boys 12U and older and Girls 5/6 and older will be in the other group.
It will be 4 sessions (below) and only $25 for the whole program, so a great deal for all the benefits they will get for sure. Your player does not have to be at all of them, but of course, we highly recommend they do if at all possible!

As part of registration, we offer a self-register process where our system is linked to US Lacrosse's and will check if your player’s US Lax membership is valid for the duration of the program. If not, you will be directed off to US Lax's website to extend it and return to complete our registration process.
