Skills Sessions with Coach Ward

Coach Ward provides skills sessions for attackmen and midfielders.  Since he lives in the area, he is accessible to Rockfish players and small groups in our program for private lessons.  Coach Ward is a highly skilled technician in dodging, shooting and footwork so he can teach your son the proper fundamentals that are being taught at the highest levels of lacrosse today.  Justin can also arrange special sessions with small groups of attack and midfield lines, so it's beneficial if you can bring three or more players to get in some incredible work with a current MLL player and our very own Rockfish Pro Staff member!
