Program Philosophy


Today's athletes are stronger, faster, quicker and more skilled. 

In our new program, which has been designed specifically to improve player athleticism, our representative teams will train and play harder than ever before.


Our new weekly practice program will be a high intensity, 90 minute (30/30/30) session, focused on three core elements of becoming an elite lacrosse athlete:


  • Cross-Fit Training: constantly varied, functional movements performed at a high intensity to improve athlete fitness
  • Skills Training: Stick fundamentals and ball familiarity
  • Team Play and Strategy: ball possession and movement, transitions and positional play

General SMLA Rep Program Information

  • - The SMLA has included in the program (1) 90 minute rep team practice per week starting April 26th. Most practices will be scheduled on Mondays. Additional practices may be added by the coach/team.

  • - The OLA (Ontario Lacrosse Association) has implemented the rule that all D & E ranked representative teams must participate in their association’s lacrosse league. The SMLA, 9 week + DOC program runs Tuesday nights (2004-2009) or Wednesday nights (2010-20011) and will consist of skills training and games that will complement the player development model of the representative program.
  • - All SMLA rep teams will have non-parent head coaches. Parent volunteers with certification and VSS may be chosen by the head coach to complete the team bench staff.
  • - Rep team fee $475 (estimate based on 17 team members) + local lacrosse $250 + Rep jersey/shorts/socks. ***Each team has the opportunity to reduce player fees through team sponsorship & fundraising initiatives.
