DU Pioneers Winter Shooting and Goalie Clinic

The University of Denver lacrosse program is planning clinics for the 2013-14 winter season. These clinics focus on positional skills and drills to prepare players for their upcoming spring season. The clinics are directed and overseen by legendary head coach Bill Tierney, Trevor Tierney, Matt Brown and Dylan Sheridan.

These indoor clinics are an awesome opportunity for players to keep working on their skills in the cold of winter and make sure that they are not getting rusty for the upcoming spring season. We will concentrate on position specific skills for shooters. They will learn secrets and tips from former Denver Outlaws star attackman and DU associate head coach, Matt Brown. This is an awesome holiday gift for the up & coming lacrosse star!

Also, there will be a goalie clinic run by Trevor Tierney, a former MLL All-Star and Team USA goalie. The goalies will work on specific drills and skills to help them improve as keepers and get them ready for the upcoming season! Goalies should wear field (not box) goalie equipment.

2015 DU PIONEERS YOGA TRAINING SESSIONS

to May 31

2015 DU PIONEERS YOGA TRAINING SESSIONS

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our second year of yoga classes for lacrosse players on Sunday evenings. Last year was a great success and many of the players loved coming to these sessions every week!

Many top college programs and professional players are turning to yoga to help them increase their flexibility, body awareness, balance, strength and mental focus. Many young athletes focus solely on lifting and running, which can lead to tightness and injuries. Yoga allows athletes to stay loose, healthy and increase their athletic ability in a gentler way. We have developed a four week curriculum that is specifically geared towards helping lacrosse players get loosened up for their upcoming season!

Young athletes can be intimidated by going to a public yoga studio, so this will be a great way for them to get introduced to the practice with other lacrosse players their age. April Glaser, along with the help of Trevor Tierney, has designed great yoga classes specifically for young athlete lacrosse players. Trevor has said many times about yoga, “I wish that I had been introduced to yoga earlier in my athletic career. Once I started practicing it as a professional lacrosse player, I became more flexible, faster and stronger in different ways. Also, it helped my hamstrings and lower back loosen up and not hurt anymore.”

April Glaser has been teaching for seven years and is a well-respected teacher at some of the top yoga studios in Boulder and Denver. She received her yoga teaching certification from Core Power Yoga in 2007, and shortly after packed up her yoga mat to travel the world. She has taught on the beaches of Tulum, Mexico and Nosara, Costa Rica, as well as in the mountainous region of Chiang Mai, Thailand. She's also studied on a yoga and meditation retreat in Reshekish, India. April has experience in teaching to beginners, children, elderly in retirement homes, dancers, athletes, women recovering from breast cancer, and everyone else in between. She loves the way yoga can help increase concentration, personal strength, flexibility, relaxation, health, and an overall sense of well-being. In addition to teaching yoga, April is a certified Thai Massage practitioner, with a home practice in Boulder, CO. The boys have enjoyed learning from yoga from April in the past, so we are excited to have her offering these classes again.

Dates: Every Sunday from January 18th through May 31st
Times600PM to 700PM 
Location:  Ritchie Center, DU Campus |  3rd floor, Studio C
Open to:  Players in grades 6-12
