NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse coaching staff this weekend will conduct its fifth annual National Coaches Clinic. The clinic will take place on the University’s campus and will cover all facets of the game.

This is the fourth straight year the clinic has reached its capacity and a record 300 coaches have registered for this weekend’s event.

The Notre Dame staff has customized this clinic to make sure it is accessible and valuable to youth, high school and travel/club coaches. Subscribers of the team’s YouTube channel, NDLaxTV, know that nearly every drill can be done by players at all levels.

The clinic is a great opportunity to learn from a staff that has the Fighting Irish among the top teams in the country on an annual basis. Notre Dame is one of just two schools that have qualified for the NCAA Tournament each of the last nine seasons. The Fighting Irish have advanced to Championship Weekend three times in the last five years (2010, 2012, 2014). Notre Dame also won the 2014 ACC Tournament in its first season in the stout league.

The clinic also will include access to Saturday’s Notre Dame-Air Force scrimmage, which is slated for noon (ET) inside the Loftus Sports Center.
