)-- The Western New York Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse is excited to announce the arrival of the Covie Stanwick Girls’ Lacrosse Clinic on Sunday, June 3rd, in Buffalo, New York. The three-hour lacrosse clinic, available to girls ages 8 to 18 will be Covie’s only stop in Western New York this year, and starts at 11:00am inside the Lacrosse Stadium on the campus of Williamsville East High School. The Covie Stanwick Girls’ Lacrosse Clinic is a sanctioned event brought to you by the Defensive Academy.
Covie Stanwick attended Baltimore’s prestigious Notre Dame Prep, and graduated in 2011 as the all-time leading scorer in points. She was a three-time High School All-American, as well as an Under Armour All-American. In 2011, Covie was a member of the Gold Medal winning U-19 Women’s U.S. Lacrosse team. Covie graduated from Boston College as the programs all-time leading scorer with 309 points, where she was a three-time All-American and was named ACC Rookie of the Year in her freshman year.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to teach and train so many young ladies in lacrosse-rich Western New York,” said former Boston College All-American, Covie Stanwick. “Young players in this region of the country are incredibly committed and love having fun playing the sport. I know everyone in attendance will have a blast, create memories, and hopefully learn the same skills taught to me when I was their age.”
This D-Day event will feature two age-parsed sessions to hone defensive fundamentals, lacrosse intelligence, favorite drills and techniques, and a number of best practices - all delivered by world-class talent.
“There is tremendous demand for high-quality lacrosse camps serving our female athletes in this region,” said Ed Greenway, President of the Western New York Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse. “Covie’s standout career in high school and college is tremendous, and widely known. But her ability to connect with so many young players is what makes her an invaluable advocate and asset for the sport. We’re honored to have Covie join us and share her lacrosse knowledge with our athletes.”
