||My daughter, Nicole, plays Lacrosse for Jackson Memorial High School in Jackson, NJ (you know, home of Great Adventure!). The team, in only their second year, went from an expected losing record to 12-0 in their conference and 16-0 overall, only losing the last two games of the year - one in their conference championship and the other in the early rounds of the NJ state tournament, which was won by Moorestown. Anyway, this year, their third (and my daughter's second) year of lacrosse promises another extraordinary leap for the girls of Jackson; this holds true, I believe, for my daughter, too, who will probably start for the team this year as a sophomore. What's my problem, then, you say? It's conditioning, of course: my daughter is looking at ways in which she can not only STAY in shape during the long winter but ways in which she might IMPROVE her strength and stamina in preparation for the coming Lacrosse season. She is very motivated but needs direction...as her fat! (Dan from Jackson, NJ)
Nicole sounds like the type of athletes most coaches dream of and I wish her continued success. When you wrote you didn't give to much of an idea as to what the situation is, will she be training in a weightroom? What type of stuff is she doing now? what are her goals? Answers to these questions are needed so that I am not telling you stuff you already know or may be doing. I want to make sure that Nicole is training smart, anyone can work hard, but it's the athletes that work smart that get ahead. Check out our website www.teamconditioning.com
, it will be a start and once you get me the answers to the questions I've asked we will work together to create a situation that will enhance Nicole's ability to compete.
