East Meets WestOffense Only Dodging and Shooting Clinic – Dec 20th, 2014

Attackman are the brains and midfielders are the workhorses but a common talent both positions must possess is the ability to become a scoring threat at any time against a defense. Therefore the focus of this clinic is to provide in-depth higher level offensive instruction on two specific skill sets: Dodging and shooting. This clinic is geared for attackmen and offensive midfielders only. This is not a beginner’s clinic. Participants will be taught the key concepts behind how and where to effectively dodge in order to become an offensive threat. The second part covers the development of power & accuracy in a shot so as to capitalize on a good dodge by goal scoring. Many aspects will be covered including offensive communication, key spots, fakes, shot placement, goalie manipulation, defensive manipulation, space creation/dodge initiation, when to shoot/when not to shoot, power development, plus much more. Participants will work directly with Syracuse University midfielder Drew Searl who played 4 years for the Orangeman on a team that appeared in 4 Semi-Final games and a National Championship. Space is limited to only 25 participants for this clinic so register early, 1st come, 1st enrolled. Read More

FaceOff Club

To The Utah Lacrosse Community:

We can not thank you enough for welcoming us and the strong showing of support we received for our FaceOff Club event held on 10/20 in Park City. Coming to Utah for the first time we had no idea what to expect and looking back now, we could not be more pleased with how it turned out. Not only was the event a complete sellout, it was truly an excellent experience for all and is a strong indicator of the vast progress that Utah Lacrosse has made in such a short time. Your players are extremely coachable, thirsty to learn, made of high character, and have a gritty competitiveness that matches all lacrosse hotbeds.

One of the coolest (and completely unexpected) things to happen that night was the amount of club, high school, and youth coaches in attendance. Not only did they help promote the clinic, they showed up as students of the game taking notes and creating their own film work from their exposure to our curriculum. We hope that all coaches left with a greater appreciation and understanding of the faceoff part of the game. Read More

For Immediate Release – Calverton School

Bubba FairmanHuntingtown, Maryland – Bubba Fairman is a household lacrosse name in his native state of Utah, but coming into Maryland as a junior, the young man had to start from scratch and prove himself once again. His anonymity was short lived and quickly gave way to a storming presence both on and off the field. Fairman quickly gained the respect of his teammates at the beginning of the year by playing gritty and tough not only at the attack position, but also demonstrating his quick speed and thriving at the midfield position where he has never played previously. Midfield is not the only new thing in Fairman’s athletic life. Fairman really moved outside the box by placing second team all-conference with the Calverton golf team this fall as a first year player.

Off the field, Fairman is excelling at his other great skill, making friends. Already elected as the Junior Class President, Fairman is right at home in the brand new student housing on campus, rooming with the team’s goalie hailing from Pennsylvania. The expansive student dwellings resemble lake houses with Adirondack chairs and a fire pit, with Fairman always entertaining the other residential students. With six athletic fields as his backyard, there is no shortage of room for Fairman to grow. Read More
