>I will be holding a lax clinic this Tuesday night at Jefferson Elementary on the south side of Des Moines. The clinic will start at 5:30 and run for about an hour and a half to two hours. I will bringing the balls and my extra sticks.
The clinic is primarily intended for middle and high school students on the south side of the metro – specifically interested males in the Lincoln, Norwalk, Carlisle, Indianola, and Roosevelt districts. I am not opposed to other new middle/high school or adult players attending though.
The clinic will focus on the basics – throwing, catching, scooping, and cradling. There will also be non contact drills and mini games. It will be run similar to our old Toss Arounds. The clinic is absolutely free and there is no obligation to continue playing.
I am primarily running this clinic following a request from Lincoln students interested in playing in the upcoming 2010 Box Lacrosse League. Hopefully this will be the first step towards spreading the game to new areas of the metro. My goal has always been to spread lacrosse around Des Moines and then through the state as a whole…
If you are interested in attending or helping out with this clinic (or even hosting future clinics) please contact me. We will deal with any possible future developments as they arise.This information has also been posted on the Central Iowa Lacrosse Association’s Clinics & Camps page.
