Face-Off Leagues

Philly Faceoff Summer League. Spots are still open to join the Philly Face-Off League this summer. During the winter over 60 different high school face-off players (25 already committed D1) participated regularly in the Philly Face-Off League. The PFL is 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, but receive coaching as well!Boys-Events-List122223111-2-1-2-1
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.
The Philly Face-Off League is run by John Bodnar and Mike Dolente. 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 summer we will continue to be indoors at the Main Line Sports Center in Berwyn, PA! The PFL will run for the next 10 Tuesdays starting May 31 from 6:30-8 PM.
The face-off position is getting more and more competitive by the day. Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to get better this summer!

Summer Showcases

National 175 Summer Showcase, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), 110 8th Street, Troy, NY 12180, July 25-27th, 2016. Welcome to the 5th annual 2016 National 175 Summer Showcase hosted at RPI. This is the premier lacrosse recruiting showcase that provides the platform for the most talented players to showcase their abilities in front of college lacrosse coaches seeking to recruit players from all over the lacrosse community. Based on recommendations from our college coaches and some of the major club team directors we have made a decision to move our Flagship National 175 Summer Showcase 2016 event to the PRIME recruiting dates. The recruiting calendar is always a challenge to maneuver, but with an expected dead period surrounding the July 4th holiday likely to be announced in the coming months it is our belief that the weekends in July will be monopolized by the Club team tournaments and that the individual showcases will be better positioned for college coach and top players attendance in the weekday venues.“>Click here to apply.
