We are excited to introduce you to the Buckeye Lacrosse positional clinics! In an unprecedented year, we are grateful for the chance to provide those in grades 5-12 and of all skill levels with an opportunity to develop their game. So, whether you are a beginner in the sport of lacrosse or have been playing for years, these positional clinics will be designed to help you take your game to whatever level is next for you personally.
At all positional clinics, individuals will be placed in cohorts of no more than ten players. Cohorts will be made up of those of similar ages and years of playing experience. Each cohort will have an Ohio State Lacrosse player or coach leading the training session. Our positional clinics will provide an opportunity to receive individual feedback on your game and will have an intimate feel for each player in attendance. Go Bucks!
Good to Great Shooting Clinic – Do you want to learn to shoot like a Buckeye? Time and room. Sweeping the middle of the field. Running down the alley. Turning the corner. All of these different shots require proper technique. At the Good to Great Shooters Clinic, we will teach you all the fundamentals of shooting using the same drills we use at Ohio State.
Chase, Square, Attack Dodging Clinic – This clinic will be focused on the art of dodging like a Buckeye. Whether it be above or below the cage, we will cover how to set up your dodge and dominate your matchup using a combination of speed, quickness, and deception. Additionally, we will teach the fundamentals of pick play – how to set and use picks to gain an advantage.
Feet and Fists Defense Clinic – Successfully defending a dodge is done with your feet and your fists. The proper footwork of on-ball defense is a point of pride in Buckeye Lacrosse. At the Feet and Fists Clinic we will teach you the step-by-step fundamentals of dominating your matchup.
X-Factor Clinic / Less Is More Goalie Clinic – The specialty positions play a major role in the success of a team. Buckeye Lacrosse has taken great pride in dominating up the middle of the field with the face off and goalie positions. Come learn the technique and drills that make these units so special.
83% Defense Clinic – With six defenders on the field and only one ball, that puts you off ball 83% of the time. Even off ball, everyone has a role. This clinic will focus on all pieces of off ball play – stance, posture, sliding, communication, ect. Off ball defense will separate the good defenders from the great ones.
