The Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM) P3 clinic takes a deep dive into how to run Peak Performance Practices (P3), which are practices for any level or age-group that maximize fun and learning using the LADM principles. Participants will experience hands-on learning by participating in an LADM designed practice progression centered around station-based, high engagement activities that develop the whole athlete. Then our trained facilitators will guide coaches in developing their own LADM practice plan that fits their athletes and coaching philosophy. Rather than focusing on coaching individual skills, this clinic is more geared towards teaching coaches how to get the most out of their team, their practice, and their seasons, all in the sense of doing what’s best of the overall athlete.
