BOSTON, MA - Thursday, October 14, 2010 - The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, today announced two Shooting and Offensive Skills Clinics with Cannons' star Paul Rabil. The clinics will be held on Saturday, November 20th at Fore Kicks in Marlborough, MA and Sunday, November 21st at Fore Kicks in Norfolk, MA. These are the first in a series of Boston Cannons clinics that will take place in New England throughout the fall.
"Every year, we look forward to getting our players and coaches into the community to create exceptional learning experiences for New England youth players," said Mark Kastrud, Boston Cannons Vice President and General Manager. "Beginning our clinic series with an offensive skills clinic, Rabil was the obvious choice to teach the kids, given his talent, success and ability to teach the skills that got him where he is today."
Rabil was selected #1 overall by the Cannons in the 2008 MLL Collegiate Draft. He has scored 78 goals in 3 seasons, including 33 in 2009 when he was named MLL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the year. This past June in the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship, Rabil led Team USA to the gold medal, earning All-World Most Valuable Player honors.
The Shooting and Offensive Skills clinic will teach skills including shooting on the run, shooting with time and room, dodging to shoot or feed and more. The Boston Cannons clinic series throughout the fall will teach a range of skills, from offense to defensive skills and goalkeeping.
Each clinic is $75 per participant and is available for youth players ages 9 - 16. The clinics will take place at the Fore Kicks Sports Complex in Marlborough (219 Forest Street) on Saturday, November 20, from 4 PM to 6 PM, and at the Fore Kicks Sports Complex in Norfolk (10 Pine Street) on Sunday, November 20, from 10 AM to 12 PM.
