CT LAX Club Team 2023
As players in the class of 2023 the full field game is just beginning. We will focus on the basics by incorporating fundamentals skill based activities into every practice while explaining full field play. At each development session, this team will be broken in to smaller groups to increase the number of touches on the ball for each player. This group will concluding each session with a scrimmage or game like situation. CT LAX will continue to teach the important fundamentals and basics every player needs to succeed at the next level. 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 the 2015 FALL & 2016 SUMMER TEAM. Players selected this fall will represent CT LAX in the Summer of 2016. We will also select girls as practice players, who will practice with the team, participate in fall tournament, and will be used as alternates for 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.

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 are separate and the 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.
