Dear Players, Parents & Coaches;

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Face-Off Development Day in Syracuse, NY at CNY Family Sports Centre. The Clinic will take place on December 22nd, 2018 from 12:00-2:00PM.

Face-off training will be led by Coach Joe Nardella of the Atlanta Blaze and Drew Simoneau of the Dallas Rattlers. Coach Nardella was a standout at Rutgers University where he was named an All-American, an Academic All-American, Big Ten Specialist of the Year, 3x All Conference, and ranked top 5 in the nation in FO win % 3 years in a row. Coach Nardella recently concluded his 4th MLL season in which he was named an All-Star for the second time. In his Professional career Coach Nardella has logged a FO win % of 56.08, tallied 1177 faceoffs taken (top 20 all time), and has won 655 of them (top 20 all time).

Coach Simoneau was selected from the player pool by the Rochester Rattlers in 2016 in which he appeared in 13 games, scoring 3 goals on the season while picking up 96 ground balls and was .548 on face-offs. In 2017, Simoneau appeared in 13 games marking 4 goals, 2 assists, 117 ground balls, and was .579 at the X. Coach Simoneau was also selected for 2017 MLL All-Star game. This past season, Coach Simoneau was a key contributor for the Dallas Rattlers success marking a stunning 55% during the regular season at the X and 62% during the playoffs with a total of 275/490. A Graduate of Nazareth College in Rochester, NY was a 3x All-American and 2015 faceoff specialist of the year.

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: $79.00 per player (limited to 30 players)

Please direct any questions to Joe Nardella ( 315-727-6914.

Thanks and best regards,

Faceoff Factory
