We moved to town in 2012 and my son, a kindergartener, joined Mike’s 212 summer training program. Over past seven years, he’s never missed a summer and I’ve watched him go from an eager kid who was looking to have fun in his early years, to a skilled player with high Lax IQ under Mikes guidance. Mike has provided my son with candid feedback on what he needs to develop to elevate his game to the next level. Mike poses the coaching credentials and experience that are proven in developing many of top players in UT and out west.
I’ve spent time as a youth coach in Park City for a number of years and the biggest attraction to the 212 program is value. In todays world with so many club teams and camps to attend, parents often asked me. what I would recommend? For the spend of money, it’s paramount to have developed technical stick skills and field awareness before you spend excess money on travel club teams or camps. I attend a few workouts each summer at Jeremy ranch to watch the “grass roots” approach that Mike and his staff work the kids through. What you’ll witness is fun, attention to detail, high repetition workouts that will lead to development and ultimately play out in game/tournaments as the kids get older.
It’s exciting to watch the evolution of my son Vince and his teammates (Many who have been playing for 212 lacrosse since they were beginners) can continue the legacy of great High School/College lacrosse players from Park City,UT.
Thanks Mike and look forward to the journey ahead.
