About the Faceoff Factory

"Since 2011, the Face-Off Factory has consulted with some of the top face-off coaches and players in the country. Our goal then and now was to develop a top notch face-off training program. We are consistently tweaking our program and focus to give our students the most relevant and effective training.

Our willingness to teach players every aspect of the position is what separates the Face-Off Factory from other programs. Our goal is to not only create a dominant draw man, but a quarterback in the middle of the “X”. No one day event is going to make a player an instant success; however, all of the drills were designed so they can be replicated by the players on their own."

-Faceoff Factory Founder Joe Nardella
