–   101F –  July 2013 Officiating training and hands on experience in summer league with ULA trained officials.
When asked why fans/parents/coaches should attend these clinics, Coach Goodhand said, “Every coaches meeting I’ve attended has helped me do my job better immediately. At the youth level, we have a lot of great contributors in the coaching ranks who didn’t have the benefit of playing the game.  That hasn’t stopped them from becoming great coaches.  This course will help them gain tips and insights from the many great coaches we have in the region.”
On the docket for the clinics are coaches who have ‘walked the walk’ and will have great insight to share. Coach Dan Schmidt (Skyline Boys Varsity) and Coach Dave Allen (Judge Boys Varsity) will run many of the first few classes. With more than 35 years of coaching experience between them, they offer a great perspective on the events ahead for new youth coaches. Other coaches slated to participate include Dave Brattin (Waterford Boys Varsity), Walker Batemen (Olympus Boys Varsity), Stephen Dunn (Utah Blackhawks) and Andy Langendorf (Park City Boys Varsity). The Lax 201 sessions will be in the fall and will feature college programs. Lax 301 will begin in the winter and will involve out of region coaches brought in for specific teaching subjects.
“We will mirror the program on the girls side and are very excited about the enthusiasm building for this effort to educate and share our love of this great game,” said Goodhand.
