The Boston Cannons are bringing their face-off specialist Chris Eck to the South Shore Fieldhouse in Pembroke and Fore Kicks in Marlborough on Saturday, December 4th for 2 face-off clinics! These clinics are for boys in 8th-12th grade who want to learn the skills of the face-off.
Chris was drafted by the Cannons in the 2008 MLL Collegiate Draft and has been their main face-off man for the past 2 seasons. He was named 2009 MLL Most Improved Player and a 2010 MLL All-Star.
"I’ve been lucky enough to have lacrosse as a part of my life since I was young. It has taught me a great deal and given me many opportunities I wouldn’t have had with out it. To give back to the game, my goal is to share what I’ve learned with as many players as possible," said Eck. "My approach begins with breaking down the face-off in to a few fundamentals and then using those fundamentals as building blocks to then teach the more complicated aspects of facing-off. Remember being the X-factor takes a lot of time, reps and desire. To be successful, you have to turn fundamentals into instincts, through both dry and live practice. With a strong foundation, you can begin to move up the ladder and go from good to great."
EACH CLINIC IS $85 PER PLAYER AND IS OPEN TO BOYS in 8th-12th GRADE. Pre-registration is required (with full payment) as space is limited.
