Face-Off Leagues

Philly Face-Off League, a club where starting face-off players for their respective school or club teams can meet once a week to not only practice their skills against each other, and receive elite coaching. In order to be a part of the league you must have at least one year of experience facing-off at a high level for your school or club team. This league is not for beginners. This is an IDEAL clinic for face-off guys who want to compete against other quality face-off players for 90 minutes while receiving individualized instruction if needed.
The Philadelphia Face-Off League is run by John Bodnar (Episcopal Academy, NXT Lacrosse) and Mike Dolente (Dukes Lacrosse Club). They both have an extensive background in working with some of the best face-off guys in the area and are asking for more guys to compete. This fall they will continue to be indoors at the Main Line Sports Center in Berwyn.
