What’s the Difference Between Training and Practicing?
Both practicing and training are essential for an athlete to perform at the highest level. Even though many may think they are the same thing, practicing and training are quite different.
Practicing a sport relies on repetition. By doing something over and over again your brain will be rewired and will intuitively be able to perform the skills that you practiced. Training focuses on perfecting a skill that will essentially make you perform better during practice as well as on the playing field.
For example, during lacrosse practice athletes will practice a play over and over. When it is game day, the play won’t take a lot to think about it, the athlete just knows what to do. Training will help the athlete perform physically. For example, training will improve speed and physicality on the field. This will help the athlete get to a loose ball faster and be better able to physically check opponents and get the ball, both important skills in lacrosse.
Why is Athletic Strength Training Important?
Proceeding through a custom athletic training program will enhance speed, agility, endurance, strength and more. It is the key to becoming a better athlete. Training should continue all year round, not just during the sports season. Proper training directed by elite coaches like those on our team will boost performance, recovery time, and confidence during both practice and games. Players who are physically prepared for games will be better able to make the correct passes or get to the right area of the offensive zone to set up a play.

Staying One Step Ahead of Your Opponent
Like in most other sports, lacrosse requires players to outperform their opponents in any and every way that they are able to score points. The key to outperforming your opponents is to train harder for every aspect of your game. Let’s compare two lacrosse players with the same ball handling skill and position knowledge. The only difference between the two is their physical abilities like strength, stamina, and agility. Who do you think would outplay the other? ten out of ten times the player who is faster, stronger, and more agile will win. That is why it is critical to make sure that you are staying ahead of your opponent in physical fitness. Physical fitness is the most difficult aspect of any sport to improve because you have to consistently train to see results. If you were to stop training, you would not just remain fast and strong forever. Your fitness is a continuing effort, and at DiamondFit Performance, we help athletes train hard with consistency.
