Coach Nardella is a 2X MLL All-Star and has solidified himself as a top 3 FO specialist in the world. Lastly, Joe notched 4 years of collegiate coaching experience serving as an Assistant at Harvard University. 

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.

Our FOF Development Day includes:

  • FOF warm-up that emphasizes the importance of hand speed/coordination and antagonistic stretching.
  • Following, training will consist of fundamental and technical reinforcement, advanced moves, counters, proper footwork, and body positioning. Drilling will be competition based and take place in small groups (sorted by age and ability).
  • The clinic will conclude with our signature Faceoff Factory tournament. We will be filming the players during their live competition reps. Players will be given access to the film once it is uploaded. Spots are very limited and will close quickly. Please register as soon as possible.
FOF All-Access includes:  All-Access will take place 1 hour after the Development Day with Coach Nardella and various other professionals/ former collegiate faceoff specialists. All-Access will be limited to 12 players and provide a more in-depth focus on the faceoff position. All-Access will feature small competition-based drills, immediate film analysis, and live repetition with our staff.

Why Faceoff Factory?

Here at Faceoff Factory, we take pride in our grassroots approach. We have had great success with the curriculum we have developed and tested over the course of 5 years. Our training has translated to proper faceoff technique and fundamentals that will ensure immediate and prolonged success at the faceoff position.

Additionally, students will be introduced to and challenged to master core fundamentals, advanced moves and techniques, counters, disruptions, anticipation tactics, proper footwork, appropriate body positioning, tie-up strategy, and situational IQ.

Coaches (Free of charge) - Our clinics are always open to coaches, free of charge. We allow coaches to take notes, record video, and ask questions during/following the event.  This is a great way for coaches to get right in on the action, learn from the staff, reinforce what their players learn, and further educate themselves.

Cost: $99.00 (1-3PM only) or $150.00 (1-4PM including All-Access).
