Our story started with a group of longtime friends and teammates who regularly got together on weekend mornings to shoot around. Those workouts quickly became more structured, more intense, and more challenging. We called it Breakfast Club. Today, our athletes affectionately call it BCA.
It was back then, exactly what it is now. Small group training where athletes strive to become more complete and dynamic lacrosse players in a fun, fast-paced, and supportive environment.
BCA is not affiliated with any one lacrosse club, school, or program. We proudly work with all of them - boys and girls!
We strongly believe that our athletes become better players (and people) by attending sessions with players from other clubs. These experiences challenge our young athletes and expose them to different techniques and ideas that they can take back to their own team.
Ultimately, and most gratifying, is our young men and women create friendships that cross club lines! It's one of our most favorite things about BCA. There's nothing like seeing athletes from competitive clubs encourage and push each other during BCA sessions, and then a few weeks later compete against each other before later catching up with each other after the game!
While your Coach runs a great practice, that time is usually reserved for team-specific stuff like offensive strategy, transition play, defensive packages, and the list goes on! BCA focuses on skill-development and refinement that you just can't get in a team practice environment.
For example, a player might get 10-15 shots on goal during their typical team practice, but will get 150 shots on goal in just a 1-hour BCA session! Those reps are invaluable!
BCA sessions have a maximum 8:1 athlete to coach ratio (winter ratio 10:1), meaning our athletes are getting tons of reps with immediate and individualized feedback from instructors. BCA sessions are a safe place to push the envelope, build confidence in new skills with no fear of failure, and grow their game rapidly!
As former college players, coaches and players still today, we have a passion for lacrosse. We are lifelong learners, continuing to adapt and apply new lacrosse training strategies to help our athletes reach their goals. We are motivated by the long-lasting relationships we build with our athletes, and we love experiencing the highs and lows of helping them chase their goals!
The kids had a blast and honestly it was fun to watch. Last night before our box game, a bunch of kids were telling players who couldn't make BCA just how cool it was. The feedback among parents has been really positive. They loved the reps and pace you maintained throughout. What I noticed yesterday was how players' body language changed, good shots, bad shots, you just saw a confidence emerge.
