Lineman Skills Clinic

November 27th @ 1:00PM
1382 E Genesee Street, Skaneateles, NY

Clinic Description

Youth football players who aspire to excel on the defensive or offensive line are welcome to participate in the post-Thanksgiving Lineman Skills Clinic. 

There is no need to have ever played  on the offensive or defensive line and nor is it required to have any playing experience whatsoever.

Excelling in these positions requires skill-work during the off-season due to the nature of the regular season only lasting a few months. This clinic is perfect to learn how to keep your skills sharp so when next Fall rolls around, you're more than ready!

The Clinic Focuses on;

  • Developing an understanding for the basics for their position(s)

  • Teaching & improving leverage, positioning, and footwork

  • Foundational stances & techniques for offensive & defensive line

  • Offensive blocking footwork & technique

  • Defensive run stopping & pass rushing techniques
