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.

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 per player. 

Please direct any questions to Joe Nardella (faceofffactory@gmail.com) 315-727-6914.

Thanks and best regards,

Faceoff Factory
