In order to be a part of the high school league you must have at least one year of experience facing-off at a high level for your school or club team. 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 PFL will be meeting at two different locations on Sundays this Fall starting on August 31. Our Philly location will meet at Cabrini College. Middle school will be from 1-2 and High School 1:30-3 PM. The new South Jersey location will be at Total Turf in Pitman. Our Middle school will meet from 5-6 p.m. and our High school will meet 5-6:30 p.m.
The Philadelphia Face-Off League is run by John Bodnar (coaching at Episcopal Academy, NXT Lacrosse) and Mike Dolente (Cabrini College, Duke’s L.C.). They both have an extensive background in working with some of the best face-off guys in the area. Want in on the League?

Maplezone Sports Institute fall lacrosse indoor league at MSI Fieldhouse (October-November). The league will encompass weekly 5v5 games (goalie and 4 field players- all short sticks) and will also provide each team with 30 minutes of practice (turf-time) prior to their weekly game. This is a great opportunity to guarantee training time in a weather proof environment, allowing the ability to practice and compete in the same time frame with no rainouts! The league is designed for a hybrid style of play, combining box and field skills, allowing for a high volume of touches, and forcing players to move their feet on defense and dodge hard on offense. Standard 6×6 goals, play the ball off all hard surfaces and no breakaways with 2 pass rule in the offensive end. (CLICK HERE TO VIEW RULES)
This league is faceoff friendly! There will be a faceoff after every goal as well as to start the game and to begin the 2nd half. This will allow faceoff athletes a chance to compete at the X while continuing to develop their offensive and defensive skills. We have met with the referee assignor to review and implement specific rules/infractions regarding take out checks, helmet-helmet contact and slashing. Penalties will be assessed accordingly for general lacrosse infractions, combining ice-hockey standards for misconduct/ejections. Player safety is the primary concern to enhance training and competition.
