The New Canaan High School girls lacrosse staff is so excited to be coaching the 15th year of NCLA fall clinics.  Coach Kristin Woods, Coach Emma Sheeran, Coach Nicholas & Coach Vincent will be working closely with all the girls to improve their individual fundamentals and learn basic team concepts.  Each clinic will focus on cradling, dodging, ground balls, catching, throwing, shooting, 1 v 1 defense as well as man up, man down situations.  We are thrilled to be working with the future New Canaan Lady Rams.
