I am very proud to share that many of our coaches and yours truly are now US Lacrosse Level 1 Coach CERTIFIED! As we finished lacrosse practices last Saturday, we prepared to wake up early Sunday morning to attend the level 1 clinic at Hopewell Junction NY. It was a full day of instruction from US Lacrosse certified trainers. We learned a lot of new things from defining our goals and philosophy, to safety, teaching techniques and new drills and games to use. We had a blast.
We truly are blessed with having many dedicated coaches in our club. The best way to show appreciation is to THANK THEM, and to JUST SAY YES to volunteering. Click on that link and read this enlightening US Lacrosse Blog article about that. And sign-up for volunteering opportunities in our website.
Look forward to seeing more new ideas from your coaches and leaders. Don't forget to thank them for their dedication and sign-up for volunteering and join us. Respond, post in FB, email us. We'd love to hear from you! Enjoy our pictures below.
