*11/9 UPDATE-Rabil Clinic on Nov 20 in Marlborough is SOLD OUT*
BOSTON, MA – October 18, 2010 – The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, today announced the complete schedule of the 2010 Fall Clinic Series at the Fore Kicks Sports Complexes in Marlborough and Norfolk. Newly added dates include two Chris Eck Face-Off Clinics on Saturday December 4 in Pembroke and Marlborough, and two Matt Poskay Shooting Clinics, Saturday, December 18 in Marlborough and Sunday, December 19 in Norfolk. These are in addition to the previously announced Paul Rabil Shooting and Offensive Skills Clinics, set for Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21.
“The Boston Cannons strive to bring the best lacrosse in the world to our fans in New England through our league games, the MLL All-Star Game and our off-season clinic series,” said Mark Kastrud, Cannons Vice President and General Manager. “This year we have a World Champion, League MVP and All-Star each ready to teach their specific skills to youth players in our community. With this year’s fall clinic series broken down into three focused areas, youth lacrosse players in New England will have the chance to really concentrate on developing specific skills, whether it’s shooting, offensive skills like dodging and feeding, or face-offs.”
This past June, Rabil led Team USA to the gold medal in the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship, earning All-World Most Valuable Player honors. Matt Poskay is the reigning MLL Most Valuable Player, following the 2010 season in which he broke numerous Cannons scoring records including the single season scoring record with 45 goals and all-time scoring record with his 140 career goals. Leading the Cannons in ground balls with 61 and winning 54% of his face-offs, Eck was named to the 2010 MLL All Star team in his third season with the Cannons.
The Paul Rabil Shooting and Offensive Skills clinic will teach skills including shooting on the run, shooting with time and room, dodging to shoot or feed and more. The Chris Eck Face-Off Clinic will examine the techniques of controlling and winning face-offs. The Matt Poskay Shooting Clinic will take a closer look at generating power and accuracy in shooting.
The Rabil and Poskay clinics are $75 per participant and is available for boys ages 9 – 16.  The Eck Face-off clinics are $85 each and are available for boys in 8th to 12th grade. Space is limited in each clinic and pre-registration is required. Players must bring full lacrosse gear to participate.
