Clinic for 15U-18U Saturday October 5th

Posted in 2013-2014, Clinics on September 30, 2013 by DurhamAttack
The club is using an extra facility, Maxwell Heights Secondary School in Oshawa, every Saturday for the entire season, to hold events for our members:
  • Clinics
  • Invitationals
  • OVA tournaments
Our first clinic is this Saturday, Oct 5th, a clinic that is focusing on first contact and ball control – critical at this point in the season.  There are time slots assigned to each of our teams, as follows:
9-11 – 15U Girls
11-1 – 16U Boys
1-3 – 16-17U Girls
3-5 – 17-18U Boys
It is important for both athletes and coaches to attend.  Coaches will be able to observe and coach their athletes while drills are run by Mike Slean and our Senior Mens team.
Please RSVP to your coach asap and let your coach know that you will be attending the clinic this Saturday, as the clinic coaches need to know numbers.
For future planning, there will be clinics on October 19th for 15U-18U athletes, and on October 26th for 13U-14u athletes.  Schedules will follow.

Attendance is mandatory for our teams and coaches, but if you are a parent we also have a lot to offer in two sessions that you need:

  • Mental Training Considerations for Parents – Kyle Paquette had rave reviews when he conducted this session for our Ontario Winter Games Team
