Some spots remain in the Brotherly Love Lacrosse Camp, a special goalies and shooters camp for boys’ lacrosse players being run by Chestnut Hill College coach and legendary goalie Brian “Doc” Dougherty.
Dougherty – who will be inducted into the US Lacrosse Hall of fame – is joined by ome of the top pro goalies, Drew Adams (Springfield-Delco, Penn State), the 2011 MLL Goalie of the Year; and All-Americans and former Phillylacrosse.com Players of the Year Niko Amato (la Salle, Maryland) and Austin Kaut (Springfield-Delco, Penn State). Former Barrage goalie Kevin Keenan (Springfield-Delco, Penn State) and current Chestnut Hill goalie Dakota Maurer also are key members of the staff.
The Brotherly Love Lacrosse Camp will be held July 9-12 at the beautiful Chestnut Hill College campus in Philadelphia. The camp will offer players both extended day as well as overnight housing. Click here for additional Brotherly Love Lacrosse Camp information.
Goalies will receive the best instruction. Attackmen and Midfielders will learn how to dodge, shoot, feed and improve their overall performance on the field. Shooters can expect to take over 300 shots a day. Offensive staff will be directed by CHC Asst. Coach Adam Eddinger and will include current college players and coaches
“We designed our camp with one purpose, and one purpose only, to teach goalies how to dominate between the pipes,” said Dougherty. “Hands down, we have assembled the best staff the lacrosse world has to offer and quite possibly the best goalie camp in the world.”
The Brotherly Love Lacrosse Camp is a unique four-day camp specifically designed towards goalie play and teaching the Dougherty and Adams “Philly Style” of playing between the pipes.
Over the four-day camp, youth and high school players will learn cutting edge goal tending techniques to improve their level of play through drills and game scenarios in addition to seeing hundreds of shots daily from shooters such as Joey Sankey, Ray Kendrick, Adam Eddinger, Rickey and Danny Larkin to name a few. Adam Eddinger and Ray Kendrick will be working with shooters and sharing their tactics and techniques for shooting on goal.
Goalies and shooters will also be videotaped throughout the camp and have the opportunity to sit down with coaches to analyze and evaluate their skills in “Film Sessions.”
“Goalies are often overlooked and rarely receive position specific training,” said Adams. “Our goal is to help players realize their true potential and exceed their own expectations.”
