Our small ball programs are meant for maximum development, action and fun! Nationally, we have been at the forefront of using small ball as an effective training tool and were the first in Indiana to do so going back to 2008. Today Small Ball is the preferred training method for youth and college teams across the country and has also been adopted by US lacrosse.
Our Small Ball programs offer a small-sided playing environment that allows player to get tons of repetitions on both sides of the ball. Players are required to get up & down the field, emphasizing offensive & defensive skills and concepts in transition and settled situations.
All youth players will have a practice followed by a game each week. Our instruction includes but is not limited to the rules of the game, IQ, defense, stick-work, 2-man game, faking & finishing, dodging, screens, and off-ball motion. Adults just play but tips are offered from our experienced staff.
Play Fusion fall ball with us!
Separate programs for boys & girls
The Hoosier Lacrosse Academy has a fantastic opportunity for any player that wants to keep a stick in their hands this fall.
With our Fusion format every participant is guaranteed to see a lot of action, with an accelerated pace, and get a lot of touches!
What is a Fusion format? It means we use regular sized goals, a smaller field and have 2 attack, 2 defense, 3 middies and a goalie. This translates to a faster pace game with more touches for every player.
Small ball, as others call it, is becoming an essential way of training by programs around the world. We certainly did not invent this format but we are proud to say we have been doing this since day one.
Prior to all games, The Hoosier Academy coaches will hold a practice to help players hone their fundamental skills, learn the nuances and more complex concepts of the game.
