If I was US Lacrosse, I wouldn’t let any kids play field until they were 10 or 12,” he said. “Until box lacrosse grows in the United States, it’ll continue to be this way.

“My son, Tony Cassiere has been participating in box lacrosse in the off season for several years. I firmly believe that this participation has improved his field lacrosse skills dramatically. I am extremely grateful to Ken for running this program.”
Hoosier Lacrosse Academy played a big role in helping me become the player I am today. The summer travel teams and box league helped me develop the fundamentals that have allowed me to take my play to the next level. I would highly recommend Hoosier Lacrosse Academy for those who want to start their lacrosse career the right way.
As the oldest, fattest, slowest, and least athletic participant in the Academy's programs, I can personally attest to the strength and effectiveness of Ken's system. I leave every session feeling stronger than when I started and my progress (as late as it is) as a lacrosse player is wholly attributable to Ken and the Academy's coaches.
On a more realistic note, as a former coach and administrator of Noblesville Youth Lacrosse (NYLAX), I can also attest to the rapid improvement and solid fundamental base that NYLAX players gain after participating in Ken's programs. I've seen as much as a 100% improvement in the stick skills and overall athletic ability gained by individuals after as little as a single session of box lacrosse or a "next level" camp hosted by the Academy. "Lax IQ" is the fundamental, core concept taught by Ken and it is an underlying priority with every kid, every team, and every season. As a Dad with 2 kids in Ken's Hoosier Select program (in addition to numerous summer and box programs), I can say with confidence that my boys wouldn't be the players that they are if it weren't for the Academy. If you are serious about lacrosse and want the best instruction (not necessarily the easiest or the "winningest", because winning is easy if you only play certain players rather than focusing on the development of the entire team), Ken and the Academy are the ONLY choice in Indiana!

The training that I have seen, as a parent, at your practices has been phenomenal! Our son has received top-notch coaching from your staff. He has improved as a player and has even developed a desire to play more LSM (in addition to the defense that he has always played) because of the coaches encouragement of him to do so this past summer. I hope that you continue to do a lot of position-specific training in practices where the players are broken out by position to work on techniques. It shows when they play in their games. Our son truly had FUN this past summer with the guys on his team and with the coaches. Thanks for all you do for the players!
