Is there anything more important than CONFIDENCE nowadays?
At StickStar we build the most important skill in players, CONFIDENCE. By fostering a positive training environment we create players who are confident in their SKILL SETS and ultimately this allows them to be CREATIVE.
A Program | Not Just a Team
StickStar is a program, not a singular team. We provide opportunities to train, and compete throughout the year. We build skill over time. We are the longest running CLUB PROGRAM, last summer marked Summer 20 of holding practices / competing with our teams.
Development over Everything
While many focus on success as it relates to wins and losses, we priortize skill development / understanding / education over everything. We develop:
POSITIONAL SKILL & UNDERSTANDING,
TEAM BASED EXECUTION,
AND THE CLEARLY DEFINED & UNIQUE STICKSTAR SKILL SET.
Because our top coaches train every player / every team we ensure consistency of message and methodology. Other programs insist that you must play with other "ELITE" players to improve skill. We disagree. An individuals skill has little to do with the other players if the coaches understand how to develop the individual skill set / understanding.
UNIQUE SKILLS WE TRAIN INCLUDE: Understanding Contact / Physicality, Winding Up, Physical Dodging, Moving the Goalie, Defending Hands On, Applying Pressure, Doubling / Rotating, Understanding Movement in Every Phase
