Claire Bordley (UVA) and Mary Minshall (Princeton) Direct this outstanding Girls Lacrosse Camp!
Featuring Claire Bordley
"Fine-tune your game right before ALL the club team tryouts!"
Claire Bordley, UVA All-American, who is the current Head Coach at Potomac School, will direct this four evening specialty clinic with Mary Minshall, her high school teammate from Holton Arms and an outstanding offensive coach, was also an All-American at Holton and played 4 years attack at Princeton and has coached locally for a few club programs. We also have hired a current college D1 goalie on staff if your daughter is a goalie! This will be the area's ultimate tune-up clinic for girls getting ready for all the local club and travel team tryouts in late August and early September. If your daughter is not trying out for a local club team this clinic is still a fantastic event which will surely challenge her. Claire is one of the best instructors of young girls in the area and she will bring in additional outstanding coaches as neccessary to keep the player-coach ration low and enable more individual attention.
It is preferred that all girls attending this clinic are experienced enough to respond and benefit from intermediate to advanced level concepts. You are divided by age and skill so all girls will be challenged in stations and uptempo drills that demand focus and hard work. The goal of this clinic is to provide the best instruction and learning environment possible for young, aspiring players who want to get better faster. Focus will be placed on teaching and showing proper individual and team skills to each camper. We will have a goalie coach on staff to offer technical coaching. Perfect technique will be emphasized. We will aim to teach only those precise fundamentals which will last throughout their young careers and help players develop into complete lacrosse players who are the best for their age.
About your coaches: Claire Bordley and Mary Minshall are two of the best young coaches available today in the DC area.
