On Friday, December 19, the East Meets West crew will head to Logan for an Offense and Defense clinic.
Offense Only Dodging and Shooting Clinic
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
