In-Rink Box Coaches Clinic

The In-Rink Coaches Clinic provides a great opportunity for youth box coaches from across the Metro to come together and learn about the rules, and how to teach the skills and concepts unique to box lacrosse. 

Open to youth coaches of all levels and experience, the In-Rink Coaches Clinic presents concepts visually rather than through whiteboard drawings. Seasoned former pro box players and coaches will demonstrate and share offensive and defensive drills, strategies, plus tips and advice they've learned over the years.

Beyond the demonstrations, the true value of the Box Coaches Clinic is the building of relationships throughout the Minnesota lacrosse community.
