Abstract

THE SPORT OF LACROSSE HAS HAD A STEADY INCREASE IN PARTICIPATION AT ALL LEVELS OF COMPETITION (I.E., HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE, CLUB SPORT). SPORT-SPECIFIC TRAINING PROGRAMS SHOULD BE DEVELOPED FOR ALL PHASES OF TRAINING, INCLUDING OFF-SEASON, PRE-SEASON, AND IN-SEASON. THE FOLLOWING STRENGTH TRAINING EXERCISES WERE DEVELOPED FOLLOWING AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE MOVEMENT PATTERNS PERFORMED DURING A COLLEGIATE LACROSSE GAME AND ARE INTENDED FOR ATHLETES TRAINING AT THE COLLEGIATE LEVEL. THESE EXERCISES, PERFORMED DURING PRE-SEASON TRAINING, CAN AID ATHLETES IN PREPARING FOR THE COMING COMPETITIVE SEASON BY ADDRESSING THE MOVEMENT PATTERNS PERFORMED DURING COMPETITION.
