CT LAX Club Team 2020 – High School Development Program
The goal of our program is to focus on skill development throughout the year. Coach Kristin Woods will be fully involved with each player’s development in the class of 2020. Starting in the Fall of 2015, we will be offering fall and winter clinics. CT LAX will continue to teach the important fundamentals and basics every player needs to succeed at the next level. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will incorporate advanced tactics and techniques into our practices and games. As coaches, our goal is to be role models for your daughters. We believe it is paramount for the girls to learn the importance of being part of a team, in order for them to be able to achieve their full potential as individuals.
We will select 20-23 girls from tryouts for 2015 Fall & 2016 Summer Team. We will also select girls as practice players, who will practice with the team, participate in fall tournaments, and be used as alternates for the summer tournaments. If your daughter is selected and makes the commitment to our program we expect them to fulfill the commitment in the 2016 summer. We do not want to turn other girls away from the program if your daughter is not going to join the team. Please communicate with CT LAX as soon as possible if a conflict or injury does arise for the 2016 summer.
We highly encourage multi-sport athletes; therefore we are offering a program where you will be able to select the practice sessions and/or the tournaments your daughter will attend.

SUMMER QUICKSTICK CAMP:
Collegiate coaches and players will be instructing our campers introducing strategies, drills, and fundamentals implemented at the collegiate level. The first day will focus on providing direct one on one instruction to improve individual play. The campers will participate in at least 10 stations that focus on different aspects of the game, each coach instructing the station will be a specialist they include shooting, draws, dodging, 1 v 1 defense, off ball defense, free-position shots, man up offense & man down defense, clearing, offensive movement and double teaming. The second two days will be dedicated to developing team strategies and concepts. This will combine individual skills and team competition to round out the player's experience.
SUMMER DEVELOPMENT CLINICS AND PLAYDAYS:
The summer development clinics are practices designed to work on TEAM dynamics in order to create a more cohesive unit. We want to prepare our players for the next level of competition by explaining each aspect of the game thoroughly. Based on this past summer, we feel it is important to scrimmage local club teams so we can see what areas the TEAM needs to work on and adjust. Fairfield County has many talented programs and coordinating playdays against them has helped improve everyone’s game.
CT LAX will offer optional Fall and Winter Development Clinics. You will select the programs that best fit your daughter’s schedule. Fees and schedule will be based upon fields and coaches. We hope to create a schedule that allows you to choose what works best for your family.
