Vimy Lacrosse Winter Lacrosse Program 2014-2015
Our fourth year of the Vimy Winter Lacrosse Program is around the corner. We are excited about the upcoming year and seeing another great year of development for all the participants. Sessions will run from late October until February at the Leduc Recreation Centre. Sessions will be divided between skill development and controlled game play. Part of the each session will be focused on drills that provide players with the repetitions they require to develop as players. The other part of each session will be focused on controlled game play, allowing players to learn the proper way to play the game of lacrosse. Our mandate in this program is to develop lacrosse players who have sound fundamentals. For our goalies, we will be bringing in goalie instructors to ensure players at this position are receiving quality instruction on technique and skills.
Instruction will be coordinated by Jimmy Quinlan and Paul Rai. Jimmy and Paul currently work at Vimy Ridge Academy where they lead the Vimy Lacrosse Program. Vimy Lacrosse is a sports alternative program that provides lacrosse training to students within the Edmonton Public School Board. Jimmy played for several years in the National Lacrosse League before stepping behind the bench as an Assistant Coach for the team. Paul Rai has has 17 years of lacrosse coaching experience working with players from Mini Tyke to Senior Mens. Both Jimmy and Paul just finished the summer lacrosse season coaching the Sherwood Park Junior A Titans. Jimmy and Paul are fully committed to the growth of the game and teaching athletes to play the game with skill and speed.
