Dear Players, Parents & Coaches;

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Face-Off Development Day in Annapolis, MD. The clinic will take place at St. Mary's HS Turf field on January 29th from 630-8:00PM. All-Access will be held from 8:00-9:00PM.

Face-off training will be led by Coaches Tyler Barbarich and Alex Woodall. Coach Barbarich was a four year letterman at the University of Delaware. Before his time at Delaware he was named a USILA High School All-American. Coach Barbarich was a USA U-19 National Team Member, All-CAA Selection, Top 5 in FO% (2014), and a preseason All-American 2015. Coach Barbarich currently serves as the Faceoff Coach at the University of Maryland and is a member of the Chesapeake Bayhawks MLL team.

Coach Alex Woodall was a captain, second team USILA All-American and key contributor for Towson University. During his senior year Woodall won an astounding 74.2% of his faceoffs, finishing second nationally and in school history. He became the program's all-time faceoff leader and finished his collegiate career with 583 faceoff wins. Alex was also a First Team All-CAA selection. Woodall was the #1 overall pick in the 2019 MLL Draft (Ohio Machine) and was crowned an All-Star during his rookie season. Woodall was also the 4th overall pick in the PLL Draft (Whipsnakes LC). Woodall is the current faceoff specialist for the Atlanta Blaze and NY Riptide (NLL):

Our FOF Development Day includes:

  • FOF warmup that couples fundamental faceoff skills with anticipation tactics, focus work, and competitive based hand speed exercises. 
  • Training will consist of a heavy focus on fundamental efficiency of clamping the ball, refining technical aspects of the faceoff following our clamp, advanced moves/strategies at the X, counter moves, proper footwork/body positioning, and discussions on wing play.
  • Drilling will be competition based and take place in small groups (sorted by age and ability).
  • Live repetition in the form of pre-tournament seeding signature and a double elimination competition. We will be filming the players during their live competition reps. Players will be able to view both instruction from the session and their live repetition on our youtube channel.
