Considered one of the most important roles on a team, a face-off specialist has the unique ability to change and control the momentum of a game.  It is a position that requires strength, speed, and a chess-like ability to identify and counter the moves of an opposing specialist.  Our coaches will teach these requirements while focusing on proper technique, stance, hand speed, endurance, moves (clamp, jam, lazer, rake, etc.), and counter-moves.  Few things are more valuable for a face-off specialist than getting tons of repetitions, and this clinic will provide both individual and live reps so that each player can practice the coach’s instruction immediately.
