THURSDAY NIGHT LAX
Thursday Night Games (TNG) is designed for the boys and girls player with at least one full season of team play. TNG is a "game" night that focuses on competition but also education. Playing games is great, winning is even better, but if you're not regularly being "coached up" bad habits can form. This is where TNG comes in, for the long term development of every player.
COSMO's goal of TNG is to have every player leave the game field each night having learned (at least) one thing to improve his/her game. "Get ahead of the ball", "move it through X", and "up the sideline" will be just a few of the things that will be stressed to TNG players. We develop smart lacrosse players!
Players may sign up individually or with a team (Rangers, Patriots, Grizzlies, Cheyenne Mtn., etc... are all welcome to participate in TNG.)
