During the first month of school, the academy tests our student-athletes physically, mentally and emotionally through a month long bootcamp. Not only does our bootcamp push our players to prepare for their upcoming seasons, but it allows our student-athletes to grow individually into the ambassadors that we want to embrace within our high school walls at Lambrick Park Secondary. We will be testing our athletes each month throughout the year on mobility, stability, rotary and horsepower strength. This ensures that we work on limitations and inhibitors within our athletes in order to maximize their potential as all round players.

Our indoor facility is the most important part of our programs skill development. The indoor training facility gives us the space to efficiently play while the outdoor track enables the fitness aspect. During the late fall and winter months, skills are broken down into to basics and are built back up with proper instruction from our staff. We train our students with analytic programs such as Rapsodo and Blast Motion to provide quantitative proof of continual player development. Both defensive and offensive skills are worked on at the indoor turf. Being divided into two sections makes training more specialized and allows coaches to work with students on specific areas of their game.
march - june
Once the local weather permits we will transition from indoor to on-field training. Our athletes will be trained in position specific groups. We will also play scrimmage games within each group of the Academy so that the players can put all that they have learned to the test against each other. This creates an opportunity to see how classroom sessions and indoor training has been acquired and carried over to the field. Practicing using strategy in scrimmage games will directly relate to how students play in a league game and how well they retain and use the information provided.
july - september
