The men’s lacrosse team of Cabrini College are preparing now for the upcoming season with an off-season workout specifically designed to prepare them for future wins.

Mike Cottone, a fifth year senior and former player of the men’s lacrosse team, is a new assistant coach of the team who also works in the Dixon Center. He is in charge of keeping the men’s lacrosse team in shape during the off-season.

One of the captains of the lacrosse team, senior Brian Felice said, “Our off-season training is what puts us above other Division III lacrosse teams.”

Cottone has devised a set program for the team, which includes a mix of weightlifting and cardio exercises. This mandatory training includes a mix of weight and training, running, swimming and biking.

The training program will help develop the skills necessary to secure early wins in the upcoming season. There is a large time span between when fall ball ends and when the season starts up again in the spring. Felice said, “The harder we work, we build a stamina between the two [seasons].”

Cottone said that he tries to mix up the training so that the players do not tire of doing repetitive training over and over. The players might do some lifting one night and then switch to a more focused cardiovascular workout.

Freshman lacrosse player Pat Jenkins said, “The off-season training is a little intense, but you have to do it to get better, which is the goal…to further me as an individual and to further the entire team.”
