Registration continues for the LB3 Scoring and Goalie Clinic, featuring renowned instructor Casey Powell, Sunday at Shipley School’s Farm Fields in Gladwynne.
The event, also known as the Ward Melville-style clinic, features specialized training in skill building for all ages of boys as they prepare for the spring season. The clinix is run by LB3 founder Liam Banks and includes many top coaches that attended famed Ward Melville on Long Island. Powell is the new LB3 Director of Education.
The event runs from 1-4 p.m. and is for any boy aged 8 to 18 from any club team and any region.
The goal of the LB3 clinic is to deliver a unique and fun training experience and to develop individual players. LB3 Lacrosse programs enhance and encourage lacrosse specific skills and teach players how to implement these skills in game situations.
“We want to make sure kids’ skills are in place for the (high school and youth) season tryouts,” said Banks. “We are thrilled that Casey is coming. He is incredibly dynamic and brings a whole new dynamic. He brings it to another level for Philly.
“He is going to teach kids how to be an effective scorer. He’ll do on-ball, off-ball, pick and switch and other skills. He is always talking about stick skills and how to develop them the best you can. Casey doesn’t want to teach kids how to shoot; he wants to teach them how to score!”
