3D box LACROSSE
Winter Box Skills Clinic

3D Box Lacrosse at the YMCA is committed to delivering superior experiences for players and families looking for more than what are typically available in the marketplace. Our ability to develop players is unparalleled in the lacrosse training landscape today. Our mission is simple: develop individual players to their fullest potential.

Program emphasis will be placed on teaching the game of box lacrosse while utilizing drills designed for Youth and Middle School players. Our revolutionary training will be led by one of the most prolific team of coaches in San Diego County. Our teams of coaches have competed at the highest levels of lacrosse at the High School, Collegiate, and Professional levels.

Our program goal: Training and Skills

  • Provide an outstanding instructional, educational and technical training experience for each player
  • Our professional coaching staff will utilize the 3D Box/Field Hybrid Development System to train each player in this unique program
  • Focus on player development (arguably the most important and often least emphasized component of lacrosse)
  • Develop new levels of playmaking with proven 3D Lacrosse training scenarios
