Ohio State Lacrosse Clinics Set for Sunday

Joe Ehrmann featured speaker at coaches clinic; proceeds to benefit Finish Hard Foundation

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State men’s lacrosse program will host a coaches clinic Sunday, followed by an individual clinic for players in grades 3-12. Both clinics will be held inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on the Ohio State campus.

Spots are still available for the coaches clinic, which runs 8 a.m.-noon Sunday. Those interested in attending can register online at OhioStateBuckeyes.com/camps or at the door the day of the event. The clinic is open to coaches of all levels, administrators, board members, parents and anyone interested in learning more about coaching and lacrosse. The registration fee is $10 per person. Attendees are encouraged to bring a folding chair.

A few spots remain in the players clinic for goalies. Those interested should register online at OhioStateBuckeyes.com/camps. Registration is $50 per player. All spots are filled for offensive and defensive positions.

The keynote speaker at the coaches clinic is Joe Ehrmann, a former NFL player who is now a high school football coach and well-respected speaker on topics ranging from coaching to violence and child advocacy.  His story and work has been chronicled by Parade Magazine, NFL Films and in the book Season of Life. More information on Ehrmann is online at http://buildingmenandwomen.org/.

Net proceeds from both clinics will benefit the Finish Hard Foundationin support of former Buckeye assistant coach Dennis Stewart. On Sept. 25, 2009, Stewart, the boys lacrosse assistant head coach at Lake Braddock High School and director of operations for TripleEDGE Lacrosse, suffered a massive stroke. The Finish Hard Foundation was created to help with Stewart’s needs, stroke awareness and continued growth of the game. He has spent his life coaching lacrosse, at the high school level at Lake Braddock High School and Bishop Ireton High School, and in collegiate lacrosse.

The coaches clinic features presentations on a number of different topics, including building a culture, the recruiting process and drills for faceoff specialists and goalies.

The individual clinic will be run by Ohio State staff and players, with Ehrmann also addressing the group.
