Costa Mesa, CA — June 24, 2014 — The Face-Off Factory has announced its SummerTraining Tour and competition schedule for players in grades 4 through 12. The Face-Off Factory features coaching from three division one face-off specialists, two of which finished top ten nationally in face-off win percentage, along with a detailed curriculum focused on all aspects of face-off play to allow our student to become complete and dynamic face-off athletes. All Face-Off Factory events will conclude with an intensive competition to expose our students to top notch competition as well as situational coaching on the fly. The top performers at each Face-Off Factory challenge nationwide will be awarded prizes in addition to having their names inserted into the attending College recruiters’ player/team packets of the designated events, regardless of if they attend or not.
The Face-off Factory’s approach to training is vastly different than anything that has previously been offered. The groups will run through multiple segments and stations focusing on the finer points of the face-off position. Players will be taught all of the essential elements of the face-off position, including the four main stances, moves, counters, the importance of flexibility, wing play, situational shooting, communication, and strategy. Also, the staff will discuss the pros and cons of everything they teach.

About the Face-Off Factory:
Founded in 2011, the Face-Off Factory has consulted with some of the top face-off coaches and players in the country. Our goal then and now was to develop a top notch face-off training program. We have used small group and private training sessions to test our methods with players of all levels and abilities. This has allowed us to develop the most comprehensive face-off training program in lacrosse. Our willingness to teach players every aspect of the position is what separates the Face-Off Factory from other programs. Our goal is to not only create a dominant draw man, but a quarterback in the middle of the “X.” In 2013, Face-Off Factory partnered with Adrenaline Lacrosse to run the Face-Off Challenge. By combining intense instruction and drilling with high level competition, we have an incredible program for players to learn and grow. The competition has generated awesome recruiting exposure and resulted in players being recruited to play at the next level.
