All American Faceoff and Faceoff Factory have teamed up to provide a two day Faceoff Combine in Syracuse, NY. The two day, three hour combines will be held at 481 Sports Center in Syracuse NY by Joe Nardella (Cazenovia, NY) and Mike Poppleton (Manlius, NY). Joe is currently the face-off specialist for the Boston Cannons and Mike is currently the face-off specialist for the Rochester Rattlers. Below is a detailed description of the combines: Day 1: We will begin with our warmup that emphasizes the importance of hand speed/coordination and antagonistic and dynamic stretching. Following, training will consist of fundamental and technical reinforcement, advanced moves, counters, proper footwork, body positioning, ground ball play, and faceoff shooting. Drilling will be competition based and take place in small groups (sorted by age and ability). Day 1 will largely focus on instilling proper fundamental techniques in all aspects of the faceoff position. Day 2: We will begin our warmup and antagonistic stretching again followed by live faceoffs as part of our Faceoff Challenge seeding procedure. We will progress into the more advanced dynamics of the faceoff position and conduct a film study session. Players will be filmed for much of Day 2 where coaches will share the footage with them online following the camp. The camp will conclude with our signature Faceoff Challenge. There will be separate competitions for different age groups. The competition will be double elimination and the overall winners will receive prizes.
