Level 2 clinics teach two-person mechanics and are geared toward officials looking to develop their skills and become stronger overall officials. These clinics combine classroom training with a heavy emphasis on repeated on-field observations for immediate, actionable feedback from the clinicians.
A level 2 LAREDO clinic November 9-11 at the Southside Holiday Classic in Peachtree City, GA. The event is the premier Fall Lacrosse tournament in the Southeast. In addition, that same weekend a second clinic will be held at the Paradise Coast Lacrosse Classic in Naples, FL.
Level 3 clinics teach three-person mechanics and more game management skills. These clinics combine classroom training and challenging on-field observations that emphasize proper positioning, game management and a focus on key areas of responsibility.
There will be two Level 3 Clinics this fall. The first in Tampa on November 16-18 and the second in Austin on November 30 -December 2.
