For a defensive player: I always have a specific skillset or "situational defense" theme to the session. I will typically start off very simple with some sort of footwork or breakdown drill, then I will progressively add one element at a time until, by the end of the session, they are able to complete the entire skillset. I have a very algorithmic approach to developing my clients!

Very similar to a defensive player, I will choose a specific/situational topic for my offensive players. I will start off very basic with a stick skill or shooting mechanics, and as they progress, I will incorporate more elements to the drill, i.e. a dodge/footwork into a shot on the run for example.

From an energy standpoint, I believe I have a very positive way of reaching the client. I encourage them to control the outcome of every rep. When learning a new skillset, it's not alway going to be pretty....but encouraging each client (especially at the youth and high school level) to focus on the mechanics and controlling the outcome of every rep really goes a long way!

My son has had private lessons/training with multiple coaches over the past 8 years and Coach Matt has been the best. We have seen incredible progress in just a few sessions...a noticeable improvement in my son’s game already.

Coach Matt Day is outstanding! He has coached our 13 year old for both lacrosse and strength/conditioning over the past year and he is excellent in our experience. Coach Matt's energy and ambition is contagious to his clients and his manner gets them to push themselves to reach the next level. We highly recommend!
Having had the opportunity to coach with Matt, I can enthusiastically recommend him as a coach, mentor and role model for your child. Coach Day is an effective teacher of lacrosse at both "big picture" game strategy or individual position training. He combines the physical/conditioning requirements with the necessary skill training that will allow your son to compete at a higher level, guaranteed. The bottom line is: Matt will motivate your young athlete and the passion he brings everyday is contagious.
Coach Day is an outstanding coach. He motivates his clients to want to improve their skills. Coach Day is the first coach I’ve seen that models and participates in the drills and activities he wants the students to do. Both of my children really enjoy working out with Coach Day. He supports his students in a calm and encouraging manner. He is also very approachable and supportive. My boys want to go to practice and skills training to become better lacrosse players because of him. Coach Day has a genuine passion for the sport and each of his students. He encourages a positive mindset as well as a high level of self confidence. Give Coach Matt Day a try. You will not be disappointed.
Lacrosse Coach Matt Day is Great!! Every practice is a focused, lacrosse defensive training time. As a coach, Matt is able to easily educate all levels of the players, even the parents. I describe his practices as "fun, focused, and driven". He provides the best explanation and training of defensive lacrosse skills! He has directly improved my sons defensive lacrosse techniques and awareness!!! I highly recommend this coach to all parents!!!!
My son is a high school freshman and has recently transitioned to LAX after 4 years of club soccer. We were looking for a way to shorten the learning curve to help our son quickly get up to speed in his new sport. I am so glad we chose Coach Matt for private lessons. His understanding of the game from both Offense and Defense is amazing, but when you see how he is able to connect with his students to convey that knowledge, you know you’ve found a special coach. Coach Matt is enthusiastic, extremely talented, and you can tell he is always giving his best. With Coach Matt’s help, my son has gained the confidence and enough knowledge to actually compete in his new sport. After every training session with Coach Matt, my son says he feels like he definitely improved. And that is exactly what it’s all about. We intend to keep training with Coach Matt for years to come. So, if you’re considering training sessions with Coach Matt, don’t delay. Get on his schedule before it gets full. You won’t regret it!
Coach Matt is an outstanding coach! He understands both sides of the game. You won’t find a better coach for Defense or Offense! My kids love training with Coach Matt. I have never had a coach before that runs drills with them and actually trains with the kids! My kids leave Coach Matt improved and begging for another training! Other parents I’ve talked to that train with Coach Matt, agree that our children are better, smarter players after every single session they work with him. He has the ability to get the best out of every unique child. He instills life lessons that are important off the field as well. It’s a blessing as parents, to find someone that is so gifted in coaching and training our children and aligns with our mission of growing them to be the best people they can be both on and off the field!
