$400.00 PARENT TRACK PROGRAM (FACEOFF ONLY)
This is only 1 of 2 West Coast overnight camps we offer, allowing us to provide our students with the most rigorous and in-depth program offered. Students will not only be schooled on all aspects of their position from a technical standpoint, but we will also spend a significant amount of time competing and working on improving their confidence as well. We are intentionally overstaffed on the coaching front in an effort to maximize our time and accommodate all age/skill/experience levels.
Although the face-off concludes within seconds, it is one of the most imperative aspects of the game. This overnight event will allow the coaches to teach, correct, and improve the player's mind and techniques surrounding the face-off position. Students will be taught several techniques, counters, and skills associated with the face-off position through repetition on the field. Students will also be taught how to analyze and dissect all face-off situations through our evening film study sessions. Film study has become a core element of our coaching philosophy. We will be watching films from various professional and college games to reinforce our teaching and to reinforce our philosophy that each face-off student is unique in their own regard.
In part with high-level competition amongst elite players from across the country, the most valuable tool will be the player's accessibility to the coaches. Faceoff Factory's signature competition will take place on the final day of camp. Players will be placed in brackets and seeded based on their ages and performance during competition throughout our preliminary days of camp. The tournament will be a double-elimination style to determine our Face-off Factory Altitude Overnight Champions.
Players will be filmed and evaluated throughout the day. The players will work together, in small groups based on age, skill, and request, through stations to ensure the right level of instruction and supervision. The training days will focus on building the complete face-off midfielder, including techniques, strategy, ground balls, alternative moves and counters, and film study.
We at Defense Factory, Goalie Factory, and Offense Factory are extremely excited to bring our professional playing experience and coaching to Colorado Springs for our 2024 Altitude Overnight Camp. Our mission is to prepare student-athletes to play their best, expand upon their skill set, and create long-lasting relationships through the game of Lacrosse.

Since 2011, Faceoff Factory has committed to learning, teaching, and growing the Face-off position. Our goal then and now continues to be centered around developing the complete faceoff student. As the face-off position continues to change and develop, so does our curriculum. Our curriculum highlights techniques and details that have proven effective at the highest levels of lacrosse.
After 6 years of unwavering dedication, learning and adaptation to our teaching, our mission has developed to feature three main components:
First and foremost, we aim to create a collaborative learning environment. Since faceoffs are such a unique part of our game, we must tailor the environment in which we teach and learn them to be unique as well. Here, at Faceoff Factory, we aim to foster an environment in which students not only learn from our coaches, but learn from one another as well. We firmly believe that - to teach, is to understand. And the more students can teach others about faceoffs, the more they themselves will understand them.
Second, we aspire to facilitate and demonstrate the pursuit of excellence. Not only on the field but off of it as well. The strongest form of leadership comes from the ability to lead by example. Each of our staff members is either a current professional, division 1 coach, or former collegiate standout. Through our coaching, we seek to illustrate the leadership and drive it takes to become the best version of ourselves. We are dedicated to teaching students how to be their very best at the faceoff x through constant competitive exposure both with the coaches themselves as well as the other students in addition to individualized hands on instruction. We strive to challenge the way our students think, how they treat and respect their peers, and how they communicate.
Lastly, and arguably the most influential, is the development of our FOFamily - a commitment to see that each of our students fulfills all of their goals outside the lines of the lacrosse field. Although learning at our sessions is at the forefront of all our students focus, we try to provide far more resources than just on field coaching. Some of these resources include but are not limited to, free access to watch all of our sessions on youtube, college advice / recruiting assistance, and training guidance.
We hope to see you at the Faceoff X soon.
