Box Shooting/ Faceoff Clinics

The Pittsburgh 79ers and PGHBOXLAX have put together two training sessions for the next three weeks, and they are welcoming all 2027-2022 grad year boys to attend.

Box Lacrosse Shooting Clinics
Coach: Mike McBride
Dates: 12/1, 12/8 and 12/15
Time: 7:30-8:30pm
Location: Printscape Arena (indoor turf)
Price: $30 per session, or $75 for all three
 
Description: Box lacrosse has been critical in the development of some of the most notable lacrosse players in the world for decades. While there are a number of similarities in the outdoor field game and the indoor "box" version, one skill set that is drastically improved in the box setting and translates very well to the field game is shooting the ball. With a goal that reduces the scoring area to more than half of that of a traditional 6ft by 6ft field goal, and goalies who wear pads reminiscent of hockey goalies, the emphasis on ball placement, manipulating the goalie and the speed of decisions is heightened. Offensive players become more fine tuned in their skill set by learning how to shoot in a box lacrosse setting.
 
Faceoff Training
Coach: Kinori Rosnow
Dates: 12/8 and 12/15
Time: 7:30-8:30pm
Location: Printscape Arena (indoor turf)
Price: $40 per session
 
Description: The faceoff position and skill set is one that is ever-changing and demands a high level of technical skills that don't get a lot of attention in most practice settings from youth through High School, and even club teams. We are bringing in one of the best in our area in Coach Rosnow, who has spent time playing professionally in the MLL with the Denver Outlaws, in the World Games with Team Japan, and is currently an assistant coach at Chatham University. Coach Rosnow will address all aspects of the faceoff with our guys to help develop their fundamentals and improve them from pre-whistle to exiting with the ball.
 
Registrations for both offerings can be found at www.79erlax.com. Please see attached, and feel free to share with whomever you feel could benefit from these two training sessions!
