The Stories That Matter Most To The Utah Lacrosse Community

2013 Utah Lacrosse Association Annual Convention

Utah Lacrosse AssociationThe 2013 Utah Lacrosse Association Convention will be held on January 4-5 and feature several great presentations including local and national coaches and lacrosse loving gurus.
“The convention is really the best opportunity to expand your lacrosse knowledge in your own backyard,” said ULA Executive Director Lisa Schmidt. “We have a diverse group of speakers that appeal to coaches at every level. I’m really excited about the quality of speakers this year. It’s a very cost effective way to expand your lacrosse IQ.”
The main speakers will be Ann Elliott, the first head coach at the University of Colorado, Salisbury Head Coach Bobby Wynne, US Lacrosse Men’s Director Stephen Berger and US Lacrosse Women’s Director Melissa Coyne.
“Stephen Berger and Melissa Coyne oversee their respective sides of the games,” said Schmidt. “Coyne was a goalie so she will also be talking about goalie play. Bobby Wynne is an incredible coach and has coached at the high school and college levels.”
The ULA has a committee that oversees the convention and they reach out to each of the speakers and coordinates the event. The committee polls coaches and finds out what kind of training they are looking for and then seeks to fulfill those needs.
“We are really luck to have Coach Elliott coming for the girls side of the game,” said Schmidt.
The event kicks off on Friday, January 4 with a Double Goal Coaching Workshop by the Positive Coaching Alliance Staff. Following that will be the Boys High School Stat Training Class by Annie HerrNeckar.
On Saturday, registration will be from 8am to 9am followed by the Convention Speakers Introduction and the Keynote. Individual sessions will start at 10:30 and feature talks by Westminster Head Coach Mason Goodhand, Elliott, Berger, Wynne, Howard Kadish and Schmidt. After lunch, sessions will be by Cole Sloan, Goodhand, Wynne, Fish Bartlett, Elliott, PCA Staff, Berger, Coyne, Eldon Brough, Maureen Richard, Jeremy Johnson, HerrNeckar and me!
