Laguna Blanca Hosting Free Lacrosse Face-Off Clinic with Duke’s Brendan Fowler

Laguna Blanca School will be hosting a free Lacrosse Face-Off Clinic with Duke’s Brendan Fowler, a two-time NCAA champion and MLL Charlotte Hounds midfielder, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 7.

This free clinic is open to the community of elementary to high school aged players wishing to become dominant face-off midfielders. Check-in begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Laguna Blanca athletic fields, and equipment requirements include full pads (helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves and stick), along with cleats and lacrosse shorts.

Face-offs have become the most important part of the boys lacrosse game, and a dominant face-off man can easily win games for his team! Fowler’s experience of winning the NCAA championship twice will take any lacrosse player’s game to the next level.

Face-Off Clinic Plan:

» Fundamentals and The “Plunger”/”Pinch-and-Pop”

» Auxiliary and counter moves

» Stalemate and ground strategy

» Wing control and controlling play

» Mental and game strategy

Coaching staff includes Fowler, Ethan Shapiro (UCSB and Laguna Blanca School), Nik Hodosy-Brander (Wheaton College and Laguna Blanca School), Eric Hansen (UC Irvine and Laguna Blanca School), Zakk Souza (Lees-McRae College/semi-pro player) and Ray Robitaille (Laguna Blanca School).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
