Be the Best Faceoff "Player" Not just "FOGO"

The Faceoff position is the most unique and dynamic positions in  Lacrosse but often just winning the faceoff is not enough. At the Faceoff Factory, players are coached and evaluated based on what they do before and after the draw! Are you a capable Midfielder? Can you handle pressure when you gain possession? Can you shoot on the run? These are skills that take a good faceoff player to GREAT. The Fall Championship will not only have instruction at the X but also instruction on the offensive and defensive side of the ball! All players in attendance will be put through a variety of drills that will test all of their lacrosse skills!

The combination of instruction and training at the Fall Championship will allow players to prove they are not just the best faceoff specialist ("FOGO")  in their class but also the best overall faceoff player in the nation.

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."
