Women's Lacrosse Announces Youth Clinics
Oct. 14, 2010
BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland women’s lacrosse team will host two instructional clinics for young lacrosse players who want to improve their skills this month, with the Lax Factor Clinic on October 23 for high school players and the Lacrosse Futures Clinic for girls in third through eighth grades on October 30.
“We’re excited to host these clinics,” said Head Coach Jen Adams. “It’s a great opportunity to develop skills and mix with the Loyola women’s lacrosse program.”
Attendees will receive instruction from Loyola Head Coach and three-time national college player of the year Jen Adams, Loyola assistant coach and two-time All-American Dana Dobbie and Loyola assistant coach and 2005 Tewaaraton Trophy-winner Katie Chrest. All three coaches played for their respective national teams and will be joined by players from Loyola’s nationally-ranked program at the clinics.
The Lax Factor camp runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 23. The clinic is open to high school students in grades nine through 12 and will feature a variety of drills and exercises.
“At the Lax Factor clinic, we’ll run through a lot of drills that we use with our college team,” Adams said. “It’s fresh and exciting lacrosse, and campers can tailor the camp to their needs.”
The clinic will include a “You Pick 2” option, where attendees chose two mini-sessions from stick handling, draws, checking, eight-meter shooting, defensive footwork and goalkeeping.
The Lacrosse Futures clinic will instruct girls in third through eighth grades and run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 30.
“The Futures clinic will be a similar kind of format to the Lax Factor clinic, but focus on individual skill a little bit more,” Adams said. “We want to make confident players.”
Attendees will work with Loyola coaches and players as they improve and learn skills and techniques with drills and stations. Though Adams works with college players daily, working with younger lacrosse players offers a welcome change.
“I truly enjoy working with kids and watching the progression in their skills, following them from the clinics and as they move through their careers,” she said. “I love working with grassroots lacrosse and helping pass on my passion for the sport.”
Registration fees are $75 for the Lax Factor clinic and $40 for the Loyola Futures clinic. Registration forms for the clinics are available in PDF format below.
