US Lacrosse will hold a men’s coaching clinic at Boise State University in Idaho this weekend, one of nearly 50 clinics already scheduled for the fall and winter seasons. Many more clinics will be added in the coming weeks — US Lacrosse held 105 last year and more than 500 since the program’s inception a decade ago.

“These clinics are a great tool to help coaches prepare for the season,” said Kevin Greene, senior manager of the Coach Development Program for US Lacrosse. “Not only do the clinics provide guidance on strategies and skill development, they also help coaches learn how to appropriately teach the game to their players based on their age.”

US Lacrosse offers three levels of clinics — Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. Level 1 is designed to introduce coaches to the responsibilities and philosophies of coaching and how to provide a safe and athlete-centered environment that emphasizes positive growth and sportsmanship. Level 2 clinics are tactically and practically focused. Coaches receive detailed instruction on building the tactical elements of their team based on overarching principles for offense, defense and transition. Level 3 clinics focus on high-level tactical and practical skills. Coaches engage in critical thinking activities to build a higher lacrosse IQ for themselves and their team.

The clinics are run by US Lacrosse-certified national trainers, all of whom have extensive coaching experience. There are currently more than 50 national trainers.
