JMS Winter Clinics – Session #2

Our second session concluded last week, where we focused on defensive fundamentals and footwork. We also looked at hitting technique and how to generate power. The session finished off with a review of a some of the new rules in the JMS League this year, as well as review of Overthrows and Obstruction. We’ve included the notes from that rules session

This weekend represents the last two sessions, and if you haven’t played with us in the past and are registered, you MUST attend these sessions to be evaluated. Failure to attend will result in a negative draft value and likely a late round draft pick. It will be a major detriment to the team you eventually play on.

  • Saturday, February 27, 2016 2-5PM (1:30 PM Registration)
  • Sunday, February 28, 2016 5-8PM (4:30 PM Registration)

To be held at the Masumeen Islamic Centre in Brampton

We look forward to seeing more of you at our future sessions. To keep up to date with what is happening, please subscribe to our newsletter using the subscription form on the website.
