IMG Academy lacrosse program will welcome Kevin Corrigan, Head Coach of Men's Lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame, as guest coaches of the IMG Lacrosse Academy Holiday Camp, December 27-30, on the IMG Academy campus in Bradenton, Florida.
Corrigan is entering his 22nd season with the University of Notre Dame, where he has built one of the most decorated programs in collegiate lacrosse history. Inheriting a program that had never earned a berth in the NCAA Championship, Corrigan has made the Irish a staple in the postseason. His tenure has been highlighted by quarterfinal appearances in 1995, 2000 and 2008, along with the school's first-ever final- four trip in 2001. Under his leadership, Notre Dame has garnered 14 invitations to the NCAA Championship since 1990, including a current run of four straight trips.
âWith the addition of Coach Corrigan to our staff at the IMG Academy lacrosse program Holiday Camp, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to helping teach lacrosse at the highest level in the country,â said IMG Academy Lacrosse program Academy Director Kevin Finneran. âAs one of the top coaches in the nation, Coach Corrigan's instruction will ensure that each camper will leave a smarter and a more skilled lacrosse player.â
Corrigan will work with IMG Academy lacrosse program coaches on both an individual and a group level to help all camp participants become more well-rounded lacrosse players. Instruction will include effective shooting and shot placement, keys to winning the ground ball, individual offense and defense, stick protection, dodging from all angles on the offense, as well as critical communication techniques. Coaches will also employ Dartfish Video Analysis to bring players face-to-face with their own performances.
The IMG Academy lacrosse program was launched in the spring of 2010 under the leadership of eight-time lacrosse world champion, Kevin Finneran. Widely considered one of the best professional indoor and outdoor players of his generation, Finneran now leads the nation's only full-time elite lacrosse program, with the assistance of Aly Josephs, Head of Women's Lacrosse. Josephs, one of the top women's lacrosse players in Northwestern history, helped the Wildcats to three straight NCAA Championships during her tenure. She finished her collegiate career ranked fourth on the school's all-time list with 187 goals and sixth with 208 total points.
