LEVEL 1 CLINICS
The Level 1 clinic brings the Level 1 online course to life through hands-on training facilitated by US Lacrosse-certified trainers. The curriculum 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. You’ll acquire the tools to teach rules, basic individual skills and basic team concepts to beginning players of all ages. This baseline training is relevant for all lacrosse coaches, regardless of experience. Coaches must attend a Level 1 clinic to attain Level 1 certification.
Level 2 clinics are tactically and practically focused. Coaches will receive detailed instruction on building the tactical elements of their team based on overarching principles for offense, defense and transition. The Level 2 curriculum is geared toward coaching players who have an understanding of the basic skills and objectives of the game. Coaches also will learn how practice planning fits into overall tactical objectives for their season.
Coaches must complete a Level 2 clinic to complete Level 2 certification. The Level 2 online course is part of the certification requirements, but is not a prerequisite for the Level 2 clinic.
