Vimy Spring Break Camp Goalie Focus with Aaron Bold

The Vimy Spring Break Camp will be featuring Aaron Bold as it lead Goalie Instructor, working with the young goalies.  The camp, scheduled for April 2nd and 3rd, will include two full days of lacrosse instruction for players and goalies.  Goalies will receive personal instruction on their position as well as being integrated into drills, where they will implement the skills they are being taught.  It is critical for goalie development to receive instruction of the fundamental skills of the position.  These fundamentals will serve as the foundation of their long term development as a box lacrosse goalie.

We are excited to have Aaron Bold join the camp again this year and we look forward to seeing all the goalies working with him at the camp.  To register for the camp please click here.
