Our coaching staff will provide the goal, balls, and any other necessary training equipment that is required for the lesson. Please contact us immediately if your player does not have the equipment listed above.
2. Where can I find the NJ Lacrosse Training Waiver?
Click Here to view and print your NJLT Liability Waiver. All players MUST bring this form completely filled out and signed before their first training session.
3. Does my player improve after each lesson?
YES! But it is up to the player to continue to work on their skills between lessons. To get the most out of training with NJLT, each player MUST do their homework in between training sessions. If the players do not work on the new skills then the coaches must spend part of the next lesson working on skills taught in prior lessons.
4. How many lessons should my son/daughter do with NJLT?
This is directly related to how much you would like your son/daughter to improve. Players who train with us for six or more lessons benefit the most from training with NJLT.
5. What do we do if there is inclimate weather?
We will contact you the day before your lesson to discuss if the weather looks like it may be an issue. Please be advised that all lessons will be held through the cold, and after snow has fallen. Lessons will be cancelled if there is lightning, hard rain or if snow is currently falling.
Our staff has all played college lacrosse and we have all practiced outdoors in the freezing cold and in the rain. We DO NOT CANCEL on account of the cold. As long as the players can get their footing, all lessons will be held as scheduled. Lessons may be relocated to a cleared parking lot or a tennis court to assure proper footing. Please be prepared with cleats and sneakers for all lessons.
6. What is the NJLT Cancellation Policy?
Cancellations MUST be made more than 24 Hours prior to the start of a scheduled lesson. Cancellations for a camp or clinic must be made 2 weeks prior to the start of the event. For a more detailed description or our cancellation policy please see our refund policy page.
7. What time should I plan to arrive at the field before my lesson?
Plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of your lesson to stretch and prepare for your lesson.
8. Does my lesson end after exactly one hour?
Plan to stay after your lesson to collect balls. Our coaches schedule lessons back to back and to be fair to the next player a full bag of balls will be retrieved by players at the end of their lesson.
9. What if my lesson starts a few minutes late?
All lessons are planned to start on time, but delays do happen while transitioning between players. Please be patient and be assured that even if your lesson that was scheduled for 10am does not begin until 10:06, you will still receive one FULL hour of training.
On the rare occurance that the coach is late, they will contact you to let you know they are running late. If your coach is late and has not reached out to you, please let us know by emailing our director at firstname.lastname@example.org so this issue can be addressed.
10. If I have a goal at my house, can I schedule lessons at my home?
It is good to hear that you have a goal, this will make your players homework easier to complete!
Lessons are held at one central location to enable our coaches to schedule more players in the time they are able devote to training each week for training. Only on rare circumstances do we come to a players home to train them.
Training at a players home is not commonly practiced is due to the common fact that when a lacrosse ball meets a window or car, the result is often very costly. To avoid this common lacrosse occurance we only train players at fields.
