This is our third year of our West-based Overnight Camp. This is only 1 of 2 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 the faceoff position from a technical standpoint, we will 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 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 film 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. Face-off 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 double elimination style to determine our Face-off Factory National Overnight Champions.

Players will be filmed and evaluated throughout the day. The players will work together, in small groups based upon 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.
