Buffalo, NY, March 28, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Western New York Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse is excited to announce the arrival of RBDC Lacrosse on Thursday, May 31st, in Buffalo, New York. The three-hour lacrosse clinic, available to boys in Middle School and High School will be RBDC’s only stop in Western New York this year, and starts at 6:00pm inside the Lacrosse Stadium on the campus of Williamsville East High School. RBDC events are geared for offensive players with a focus on enhancing stickwork and shooting skills.
Long considered an extraordinary lacrosse clinic for youth players seeking professional instruction, RBDC Lacrosse brings a seasoned championship pedigree to all of its events. Former Division-1 standouts and current MLL players, Ryan Brown and Deemer Class, utilize their personal experiences and training from playing at the highest levels to teach players to become elite shooters and marquee offensive pieces for their teams.
“The sport of lacrosse in Western New York is truly ingrained into the fabric of the community,” said Deemer Class of RBDC Lacrosse. “The region has a deep lacrosse heritage and the players from the area have a strong appetite to learn more and become better overall athletes. Ryan and I are tremendously excited to meet, teach and share our skills with so many eager competitors.”
The personal instruction method RBDC Lacrosse teaches includes techniques that are critical for success in offensive sets and "on the run" shooting. The in-depth sessions ensure focus and efficiency by engaging clinic participants with high-speed, high-repetition, playmaking scenarios. Those who experience the RBDC Clinic should expect an accelerated development of lacrosse IQ and stick skills at the conclusion of the event, as players benefit from a far greater number of touches in these scenarios than what is typically provided by a traditional field lacrosse practice.
“We are thrilled to host RBDC Lacrosse to the Buffalo area,” said Ed Greenway, President of the Western New York Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse. “The value and outcome clinic participants will receive is limitless. And we expect players in regions from Rochester to St. Catherines Canada, and all points in between, to join us for this cutting edge RBDC Lacrosse event.”
RBDC Lacrosse in Buffalo is a sanctioned Ryan Brown-Deemer Class Event and is in partnership with U.S. Lacrosse. All participants of the Clinic must have an active U.S. Lacrosse membership to participate. For those who do not have an active membership, players are encouraged to sign-up and join on the U.S. Lacrosse website at USLacrosse.org.

About RBDC Lacrosse
Born in Baltimore, Ryan Brown and Deemer Class have competed against each other at the highest levels throughout their playing days and are widely regarded as two of the best shooters in lacrosse. They attended rival high schools, Calvert Hall and Loyola Blakefield, and competed together during the summers with the Baltimore Crabs, Gotskillz, and FCA. Only matching up once in college for Johns Hopkins and Duke University, Ryan and Deemer graduated college in 2016 and continue to compete for the Charlotte Hounds and Atlanta Blaze.
In June 2016, Ryan and Deemer proudly announced they’d be East Coast Dyes sponsored athletes. Now residing in different cities, RBDC Lacrosse will take what they’ve learned beyond the Baltimore area and travel nationwide to train players and help the next generation of rising stars.
Ryan currently coaches for Marquette University, serving in his second year as a volunteer assistant. In 2017, Marquette won the Big East Championship.
Deemer has recently joined the Varsity staff at McDonogh School in Baltimore, Maryland, where he will serve as an offensive assistant and overall player development.
