For all RLA Girls Program Coaches...Please see below message.
Greetings JGLA Members,
Per my previous email we are going to be hosting our annual coaches clinic on Sunday March 22nd from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Kean University in Union NJ. I am really excited about the format and the fact that Jordan Trautman, Kean’s Women Lacrosse Head Coach, her staff and team will be leading this clinic. You will have the opportunity to bring your daughter and have her participate in the clinic as well. Coaches will be in the classroom from 11:00 AM to 12:45 before taking the field. The players will be on the field with the Varsity players during that time for skill development and then will be part of the clinic for coaching instruction on running drills and game strategy
The clnic fee is $50 and you can register using the following link:
Coach Trautman has an incredible lacrosse background: She was a 4 year starter at Georgetown University, team captain for 2 seasons, All American, won 2 Big East Titles, played in 3 NCAA tournaments and a two time Team USA candidate. After her playing career she was an assistant coach at the Naval Academy working for Coach Cindy Timchal, the all time leading winner of games in college lacrosse history for any division men or women. Jordan was the assistant coach at Yale where she was responsible for the defense and had Yale in the top 10 in national defense statistics. In her spare time she is the Program Director for Girls Training for Washington DC based Breakout Training Academy.
Besides planning a great curriculum that will cover all facets of the game, we asked Coach Trautmann to make sure grade level points of emphasis are included to help coaches at the 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 Levels. To that point and with her support and enthusiasm we are inviting coaches to bring their daughters with them (first 50 registered) to the clinic. The players will get instruction time with the Kean Team and then will be part of the on-field coaching component of the day. We really wanted to make this a win-win and hopefully this format does just that by being able to share in the day and learning opportunity with your daughter. Either way it will be a great learning experience.
