Echelon Lacrosse was created to specifically leverage the dynamic and progressive knowledge, capabilities, power and effectiveness of the DoubleCrosse System. Recognized as an order of magnitude innovation in the sport, the DoubleCrosse system is a complex conceptualization of how a progressive lacrosse player and team should perform offensively, defensively, and in transition.
The DoubleCrosse System is built upon the foundational fundamentals of box-specific techniques, strategies and tactics which are then carefully imbedded and integrated across the field platform to achieve a creative, counterintuitive system and style of play that is disruptively dominant in form and function.
Echelon Lacrosse is intended for those players who have had either previous exposure and training in the DoubleCrosse System (Rise) or have made the long-term commitment to acquire the knowledge and skills (Force) necessary to leverage the system in on-field competitive environments. The ultimate objective is to showcase the unique capabilities of the system, and the players and teams for which they compete.
Echelon Force was created specifically for players who have the desire to acquire the essential knowledge, skills and expertise necessary to execute and compete using the DoubleCrosse system. Through a combination of box-intensive training and field integration, the DoubleCrosse system is a complex conceptualization of how a progressive lacrosse player and team should perform offensively, defensively, and in transition.
Players that participate in the Force program have a desire to learn the basic elements of DoubleCrosse and participate in practices and tournaments that allow the expression of their knowledge and skill.
