The best midfielders can dominate on the defensive and offensive end. This clinic will begin with defensive instruction. Defense is played from the bottom up, starting with proper footwork, then with active hands, and lastly with the stick. Coaches will teach breaking down on ball, positioning off ball, driving on a ball-carrier’s hip, sliding technique, and throwing the right stick checks.
We will then move to offensive instruction by teaching all the different ways a midfielder can score and assist a score. Once each player has all these options in their arsenal, the coaches will then teach when and where each move is most effective and what countermoves go with each situation. Throughout these lessons, the coaches will emphasize general field awareness, game IQ, and proper stick protection.
*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.
