We are pleased to announce our affiliation with True Lacrosse – Michigan.
We will provide strength training and speed and agility training to True Lacrosse players at both our Plymouth and Grand Rapids training center locations. Welcome to the Barwis Methods training family!
“We feel this is a great partnership. We’re giving our student athletes the tools to succeed, now they just have to decide how hard they want to push themselves. In sports, there is no entitlement. In life there is no entitlement. Barwis Methods and True Lacrosse see eye to eye on this. In order to reach your goals, and to set new ones, you have to put in the work. We want our student athletes to know what has to be done to achieve their goals. With this partnership, we’ll do just that on and off the field!”
