Friday night kicked off the 2012 MLL All-Star Game in Palm Beach County, Fla. as over a hundred young lacrosse players gathered at the main field at FAU Stadium for a free youth clinic. Hosted by MLL All-Stars and coaches, budding athletes received invaluable tips from pros like Casey Powell, Paul Rabil, Stephen Berger, Jovan Miller, Drew Westervelt and Chazz Woodson.
Youth players moved from station to station to learn tips about shooting, defending and dodging from the Young Gun and Old School players. After the clinic, players signed autographs for fans who are all excited to see their favorite MLL All-Stars compete on the very same field on Saturday.
Those in attendance were treated to an appearance by renowned football coach Howard Schnellenberger, who discussed his appreciation for the growing sport of lacrosse with fans and media.
