For Immediate Release – The FaceOff Club

For the first time ever The FaceOff Club (FOC) will be coming to Utah in what they hope to be a regular stop on their schedule. The FOC is entering their 10th year of being the “Premier Training For FaceOff Specialists”. Registration for this event is open to all lacrosse players grade 5-12. We also would like to invite all Utah Coaches (Club, High School, and Youth) to attend, free of charge, to observe our teaching.

We are very excited to bring our FaceOff Club event out to Utah on Monday Night October 20th 2014 in Park City at the beautiful Newpark Fieldhouse facility. The FOC has had the pleasure of working with several of your state’s top face-off guys over the last few years at our major events on the east coast. It is been great to see them thrive and help their teams to great success in the spring season. As well as collecting All-American, All-State and All-Conference accolades. We have trained Utah’s First Team All-State players the last 3 years and in 2014 we had a total of 5 All-Conference specialists of FOC trainees (Jace Thomas – Bountiful, Jackson Burton – Park City, Logan Lund – Brighton, Joshua Homer – Olympus, and Ryan Robley – Pleasant Grove).

We pride ourselves on playing a clean, respectable game, and being a tight knit brotherhood.

In our inaugural season, we competed in 4 local and national tournaments and made a name for ourselves. We plan to compete and play in local and national tournaments in the upcoming 2015 season. Read More

For Immediate Release – Utah Blackhawks

Utah BlackhawksIt was a great weekend to be a Blackhawk at the Adrenaline Utah Uproar Festival in Orem September 26-27. Not even the rain could slow down what the 5 teams did on the fields. Being a 2-day festival format, there were no playoffs or division winners crowned but the Elite A, High School A, High School B, and U-15 teams all went undefeated. The HS B team did lose a scrimmage Friday night to Possession’s Elite B team 10-3. The short-handed U13 team put up a great showing (even though their record may have not have reflected so) against teams that were older and more experienced.

All teams had some new players playing in their first games in a Blackhawk uniform and we would like to recognize them and say welcome to the club, you all performed brilliantly and looked sharp in your new colors. Thanks for making our family stronger both on and off the field. We would also like to thank and welcome our new Program Director Nick Gradinger for taking our club into their first tournament under his leadership and first time coaches Phil Dobson and Luke Fairman.

Abbie Coleman

After six successful seasons with the Park City Miners, head coach Amy Hafets has stepped aside. Her decision came after winning the 2013-14 state championship against Riverton in May. According to sources, Hafets has decided to pursue personal goals.

Replacing Hafets is former assistant coach Abbie Coleman. The New Jersey native was the assistant varsity coach at Park City for two years and feels that she learned enough from Hafets to continue to be competitive. Being a previous assistant coach should help the transition for the team be seamless.

Coleman played her college lacrosse at D-I Saint Mary’s College in California where she was a four year starter and collected numerous accolades. She moved to Park City in 2011.

“I am well aware that I have big shoes to fill with Amy resigning after a state championship but I’m confident with how the team will perform this year,” said Coleman. Read More
