Braveheart Elite Lacrosse (BE Lacrosse) and RHAM Youth Lacrosse are excited to a fall Lacrosse Clinic for experienced players entering grades 3-8 (those who have played during at least the spring season of 2014). This is a great opportunity to bring your lacrosse skills to the next level with high-quality lacrosse training from a professional player/varsity coach, Pete Vlahakis, right here on our own fields (Hebron Elementary School fields)!
Pete Vlahakis is a professional indoor and outdoor lacrosse player and the lacrosse coach at Northwest Catholic High School. He also runs Braveheart Elite Lacrosse (www.belacrosse.com), which offers camps and clinics in Long Island, West Hartford and Granby, and has partnered with RHAM Youth Lacrosse to offer developmental camps and clinics.
These 90 minute sessions will focus on fundamental skill development and simulated game drills. Sessions will include transition drills, 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 play, fundamentals of shooting, defense, face-offs, footwork, & conditioning.
Players will play on either Monday or Tuesday nights depending on grade:
The clinics will begin at 4:30 and last until 6:00 (or sunset), and the coach will discuss the approximate end time with parents at sign-in each week. The coach may also move the start time earlier by mid-October in order to make the clinic as long as possible. The cost of this clinic is $145.
4 on 4 scrimmages are an excellent way for experienced lacrosse players to improve their skills on a small field with a lot of stick time and touches. RHAM Youth Lacrosse is offering a series of 4 Saturday morning 4 on 4s, and the boys will play in their own age groups in a structured game format with close coach/referee supervision and lots of feedback. The 4 on 4s will be held on 9/13, 9/20, 9/27, and 10/4, from 9:00 until approximately 10:00-10:15 am at Hebron Elementary School. The cost of participating in all 4 of the 90-minute sessions is $40.
The 4 on 4s are appropriate for boys who have played lacrosse for at least one season (spring, 2013). They are not appropriate for new players. We will register 12 boys in each age group initially; we will add players to the wait list after we have 12 players in an age group. If your son is in the wait list we will keep you posted about whether or not we will run an additional group and therefore have room. Please register even if it shows you as being waitlisted – as soon as we have 12 boys we will notify you to log back on and complete your registration.
