NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE
The Olney Lacrosse Academy is expanding for 2015! Two years ago we launched the Academy to focus on the fundamental skills upon which the sport is based. We’re continuing with that format for a third season, enhanced and tailored to meet the individual needs of our players.
Format Changes: Originally, two separate opportunities were available: a) Skills clinic b) Fall League participation. Given manpower and field availability, I'm combining these events. We will have 1.5 hour blocks. The first half hour will be a skill drill that emphasizes a certain fundamental. Following this we'll then break into teams and participate in an in-house scrimmages. Lu and I did a lot of research into fall league opportunities and found nothing we thought appropriate or worth the money to invest. Instead, we're focusing on getting back to basics and having some fun.
Below is the tentative schedule for the Sunday Clinics:
Age Group: U13/U15*
Location: Route 108 Field
* Skill clinics and scrimmaged will be combined
Parking at the 108 field is extremely limited and parking at the OBGC main campus will be required. More details to follow shortly.
Age Group: U9/U11**
Time: 1130 - 1:00pm
Location: OBGC Lacrosse & Football Fields
** Skill clinics will be combined, but scrimmages will be broken out by age group (U9 v U9 & U11 v U11). We will use the Pad field (adjacent to the lacrosse/football field for the first 30 minutes before breaking out into separate fields for scrimmages).
Revised Clinic Dates: 9/20 to 10/25
Price: Will remain the same at $100.00
