2017 Nike Clinic Content

January 7th

Many coaches braved Portland Snow-megeddon III to hear some coaches from the east coast, Lars Tiffany from UVa and coaches Brian Vona and Jason Orlando from Lincoln-Sudbury MA, enlighten our Oregon prairie coaches on cutting edge Lax concepts. 

Coach Vona started things off expalining how bulding the Lincoln-Sudbury program into something that focused on community and character off the field has reaped rewards on the field and even more away from it.  Coach Tiffany gave two talks: one on his general practice principles and then another showing sample drills and how they map to results in games. Coach Orlando gave an overview of his axioms, how to map them to making practice a training exercise and not just repetition, followed by some videos of simple drills building to those bigger concepts. 

For those who couldn't make it, a video of the clinic was made by our Nike sponsor.  That video will be on-line soon, in addition to the coaches' powerpoint slides and specific drill video clips, as soon as we can get things together.  Stay tuned.
