The Queens of "A" Mountain 4v4 Clinic Event will offer both a clinic and an team 4v4 challenge for grades 8-12. Courtney Connor, Arizona State University's Women's Lacrosse Head Coach, will lead players through a clinic to teach the skills and techniques for small sided play. There will be a focus on stickwork, small unit play, and O and D concepts to help players excel during the event. Each team will also play a series of round robin games (no more than 10 minutes in length each) where teams can advance up or down "A" Mountain. Teams will consist of a minimum of 6 players, maximum of 10, and must have a goalie on their roster (contact us if in search of a goalie). The 4v4 game is played on a half-field much like half-court basketball.
Clinic check-in will occur at the Sun Devil Soccer and Lacrosse Stadium at 8:30am. Any forms that are due can be turned in at this time. The event will end around 1pm.
The event will take place at the ASU Sun Devil Soccer and Lacrosse Stadium, one of the finest women's lacrosse stadiums in the western United States as well as the surrounding practice fields/facilities.
A trainer will be available throughout the entire event to oversee minor injuries and sickness.
