"The Boston Cannons constantly strive to be a part of our community, and teaching clinics is one of the best ways to help make an impact in the growing youth lacrosse programs in the area," said Cannons general manager Kevin Barney. "Not only are these guys some of our best players, they also excel in teaching. They can effectively break down their knowledge in a way youth players can understand and apply it to their own game."


The All-Star Middie Clinic ($75) will focus on skills required to be all-around players and control the game at midfield, including shooting and dodging, transition play, ground balls and defense. The Paul Rabil Shooting and Offensive Skills Clinic ($75) will teach skills including shooting on the run, shooting with time and room, dodging to shoot or feed and more. Jordan Burke's Goalie Clinic ($85) will provide the rare chance for goalies to receive individual attention on positioning, technique and controlling the defense.
