NOTRE DAME, Ind. - One of the country’s best women’s lacrosse programs resides in South Bend, Indiana and the Notre Dame coaching staff will be sharing their collective knowledge at a fall clinic for eighth through 12th grade girls on Sunday, Oct. 1, at Arlotta Stadium.
The clinic will be just the first of four opportunities to learn the game straight from the Irish coaching staff this fall. Notre Dame head coach Christine Halfpenny and her staff will hold similar clinics at Stone Ridge School in Bethesda, Maryland (Oct. 15), the ISP Event Center in Randolph, New Jersey (Nov. 10) and Indoor Action Sports of Greenfield, Massachusetts (Dec. 3).
Registration for the camp at Notre Dame is $90 and can be done online though this link.
The clinic will take place from 9 a.m. until noon with participants learning about overall team concepts and individual skill development from the Irish coaching staff which has helped lead the team to six consecutive NCAA Championship appearances. Following the clinic, admission is free to see Notre Dame take on regional rivals Northwestern and Michigan in a pair of scrimmages.
