Here are links to the Duke Coaches Clinic archive. Duke University Lacrosse annually presents a coaches clinic to High School and youth coaches in their area.

Duke is annually one of the best teams in the entire country and yet they drill in such a manner that even some of the skills taught are applicable to for even 9 year olds.
