Long Stick Middie founder Malcolm Chase has announced that his original LSM brand has merged with RPM Lacrosse, a division of Around The World Productions, LLC.
The move, according to Chase, allows for a more inclusive approach to the training methodology that has developed hundreds of long stick midfielders and defensemen over the past five years at more than twenty locations across the United States.
"Every camp, clinic or private lesson with RPM will involve, at the very least, an introduction to functional movement, and how that translates to better sport specific mechanics and performance at an elite level. The balance between strengthening, speed-agility-quickness, and skill development is why so many of our students are mentally and physically prepared for competition. When you know you've put the work in, and done so in an intelligent way, then you are more confident, and great things happen on the field. The key is consistent effort and progressive programming that begins with evaluation and corrective exercise. We staff our events with coaches who are tough but positive, and have demonstrated a commitment to this approach in their playing and coaching careers." - Coach Chase commenting on what the RPM brand is all about.
RPM Lacrosse kicks off their 2014 Preseason Performance tour in Austin, Texas on January 18. Traditional sites of Long Stick Middie events have already expressed interest in seeing what RPM has to offer athletes at every position.
