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 the players are able to get live, game-like repetitions against offensive players after receiving positional instruction.
*Prerequisites: All players must currently play on a travel team or have at least two years of travel team experience.
*All required equipment is available for purchase at The Next Level Lacrosse Store. If you need equipment, please come to the store a day or two in advance of your first class if possible.*
