The event will serve as a tryout to pick players interested in participating on a Spring-only training team, called Blue Devil Select, for the 2020-21 age group.
The program is run by former Duke two-time National champion and captain Billy Conners, a former All-American and All-Phillylacrosse.com defenseman from Malvern Prep.
The program is geared to improve the boys as lacrosse players, meet friends, and compete at a high level. Conners will hold practices in the Spring that are designed to replicate the exact drills and practices learned playing at the Division 1 level. The team will then compete against local club teams and others from the “hotbeds” of lacrosse in full-length games.
The cost is $35 per player. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
*There is a 30 player maximum for this clinic.
*Please note that the team will be selected from this clinic.
Conners was motivated to create the program by his coaches from the youth level, to club ball, all the way up to Malvern Prep. He believes that whether your son’s goal is to play in high school or college, he needs to first understand the core principals of the game and develop his lacrosse IQ. Middle school is the time to develop skills and not just play games every weekend where there is not enough time to offer constructive feedback.
The intent of this team is to supplement your lacrosse and NOT conflict with your summer and township teams. I encourage my players to still play for those teams as this will not go into the summer.
