Defense is played from the bottom up, starting with proper footwork, then with active hands, and lastly with the stick. This clinic is designed to help defensive middies, long-stick middies, and close defenders to improve on quickness, breaking down on ball, positioning off ball, driving on a ball-carrier’s hip, sliding technique, and throwing the right stick checks. With dozens of high-repetition drills and instruction, players will become confident on and off-ball defenders.
*This clinic is conveniently run side-by-side with the Crafty Attackman clinic so that players are able to get live, game-like repetitions against offensive players after receiving positional instruction.
*Prerequisites: All players must currently be on a travel team roster. To be considered for the clinic please email Boh Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
