The Philly Faceoff League will hold a special, one-time session on Sunday, Oct. 12 when Team USA and All-MLL face-off specialist Greg Gurenlian (Springfield Delco HS, Penn State, LI Lizards) comes to home to work with players for a one-time clinic at Cabrini College from 1-4 PM.
Players will receive instruction and will be evaluated exclusively by Gurenlian, of the Faceoff Academy. This special face-off session will focus on the new rules and how they will be enforced.
Players will focus on the basics of face-offs as well as advanced techniques and strategies used at the face-off X. Players will also be instructed on wing play, shooting on the run, setting up the 4 on 3 break, as well as effective transferring (substituting) through the box. The clinic will maximize the amount of live reps each athlete takes against different styles and skill levels.
This clinic will provide each participant an opportunity to learn from the best while developing the following core techniques: Stance, Moves, Counters, Groundball Work, Wing Play, Stickwork, Shooting (ie. on the run), and Lacrosse IQ.
This session is open to middle school and high school players. With the new rules now happening, this is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best to ever play the position! Don’t miss out on this unbelievable opportunity!
