We saw fantastic improvement in the skill level of all players at all levels. It’s very important that your son spends time working on his stick work.  It is important that players are confident in their stick skills and putting in the extra effort will absolutely make a difference.   Even taking 10 minutes a day all summer long will show exponential results. 

This is a basic program.  Use a throwback or a wall.
