Fire Lacrosse
Hybrid Training

COVID 19 Update

Late July and early August is usually the time of year when we step away from the field and hit the reset button for the upcoming Fall Season. When we were finally granted field space in early July, our players expressed an eagerness to continue and we were not going to stop them! Even though August looked a bit different this year, we are so happy with the overall growth and development of our players during this time.

We had all age age groups attending sessions on the field, the beach, and even meeting on the screen. Coach Lyndsey joined us for very well received Sleep and Nutrition Zoom Calls and we welcomed Coach Dan to our staff to offer performance, speed and agility training on the beach! It is so great to see how our older players interacted and served as role models to our younger players. Training during what is supposed to be our off season is not an easy task, especially with most players heading back to online school. Having a group of people that shows up and pushes alongside you makes it all worth it!

Online school presents many challenges within itself. We want our training to be a space where our players can let lose, have fun, compete, feel positive energy and motivate one another. We are VERY excited to continue our August training format in September. This allows more of our players to get back into the READINESS mentality after a break from the field, while at the same time providing an energy release from sitting behind the screen all day.

Fire Lacrosse
Virtual Training

COVID 19 Update

With the onset of COVID 19, many lacrosse programs, including Fire, were thrust into the thick of virtual training. Virtual training does not replace team practices on the field, nor does it replace games and tournaments. But virtual training offers up a lot of opportunities to make our players mentally and physically stronger athletes. We took a very innovative approach to virtual training that allows us to focus on developing the individual, rather than the team, which in turn will make our teams stronger when we return to the field. In fact, so many components of our program have proven to be a valuable supplement to on-field training, that we plan on keeping them when things return to normal. Here are some specific program elements we have developed for our players.

Mindset Monday

Every player’s mind can be stronger. We currently run a program called Mastering Your Mind that consists of 10 sessions covering Control, Confidence, Commitment and Challenge. Each session includes a video and a breakout discussion, as well as daily reflections and an end of the week feedback survey.

Run Club

Cardio is a huge part of being a well-conditioned athlete. But there is more to running than just grinding out miles. The Fire Run Club is an interval training program that simulates a game situation. It consists of 3 training runs a week, each supported by a guided timer that we program into an app to make keeping track of the intervals really easy.

Workshops

Workshops are designed to cover specific topics not addressed by the general curriculum and can cover a wide variety of topics, including social injustice. Yes, our platform gives girls the opportunity to work through difficult issues that affect us all. We go at the topic with a structured approach to learn how to understand and accept each other, and how to develop solutions.

Supporting our program is custom-built Google classroom for each team. It allows us to communicate with players, run our training, post assignments, hold everyone accountable, run our schedule, as well as collect all the reflections at the end of the week.

Welcome!

Fire Lacrosse is a new force on the girls lacrosse scene. It is the Elite division of Dragons Lacrosse and offers girls dedicated to the sport a chance to play at a higher level and to reach higher goals. Fire is backed by an incredible coaching staff that trains our players, guides them through tournaments and actively supports them in the recruiting process. We have an amazing team environment and a great attitude.

At Fire Lacrosse, we believe COMMUNITY breeds CONFIDENCE. We strive every day to create a family environment where girls are free to be their truest selves and supported for doing so as they develop as lacrosse players and people through adolescence. When girls feel supported, fear of failure dissipates, challenges are faced head on, skills are developed, and the CONFIDENCE CYCLE begins. Confident players become confident young women off the field and when that happens, the possibilities are endless. 

Become a part of our growing community and join the Fire Family today!

Testimonials

"I moved to California because I knew I wanted to coach lacrosse and bring this amazing sport to as many girls as possible in the area. Although, I didn’t fully know what to expect, I quickly found out Fire Lacrosse is different than any other club I’d coached for. A family culture combined with a constant pursuit of excellence is exactly what I believe club lacrosse should be, and Fire has created just that."

— LYNDSEY MUNOZ

"We would like to thank you both so much for your acknowledgement of Harlow's hard work. She was so excited and couldn't wait for this season with Fire. She strives to be a better player playing with both you girls and the team. She is doing her pre-season training with SamoHi and doubling her practice time by playing Fire."
