SPARKS, Md. — US Lacrosse has announced the availability of nearly 100 speaker presentations from the 2018 US Lacrosse Convention (LaxCon) for review on demand at the organization’s e-learning website, learning.uslacrosse.org.
Sessions that took place at the STX Live Field and SI Play Demo Field, along with selected other clinics, were filmed. Most of the classroom sessions that took place on the 300 level of the Baltimore Convention Center were captured via audio synchronized to the speaker’s progression through his/her PowerPoint. The inventory of LaxCon sessions includes 30 that have been designated as continuing education opportunities (CEOs) for participants in the US Lacrosse Coach Development Program.
“One of the many benefits of attending LaxCon is free access to this on-demand library of sessions, allowing coaches and officials to review parts of clinics they attended or digest whole sessions they could not attend during the three-day convention,” Kim Rogers, director of events at US Lacrosse, said.
For those that did not attend LaxCon, sessions may be purchased on the site individually or in bundles. Pricing discounts are available for members of US Lacrosse.
