4-day lacrosse clinic with lead instructor John Pynchon ’01, St. John’s Prep varsity head coach

Open to boys at any school, entering grades 4 to 9.


The clinic is held on the Brother Linus, C.F.X. Athletic Commons, which is the practice field for the St. John’s Prep varsity team, and also the location for the underclassmen home games. The turf field is equipped with multiple lacrosse goals and game balls.


The staff, made up of the most well-respected local high school and college coaches, incorporate drills which they use at their own practices to help prepare players for the next level. 

Coach John Pynchon and his staff have 12+ years of experience to provide instruction on fundamental development in the following areas: 

  • Defender
  • Midfielder
  • Attacker
  • Goalkeeper

This 4 day camp is designed to develop lacrosse fundamentals in a competitive and fun environment. Players of all ability levels will be challenged in a variety of traditional and progressive drills that aim to develop the individual player’s skills and understanding of the game.

We were able to provide a fun, safe experience this past summer 2020 for 30+ lacrosse players. We have continued to develop our program and are ready to hit the pitch again for summer 2021!
