What is the Faceoff Factory

Since 2011, the Face-Off Factory has consulted with some of the top face-off coaches and players in the country. Our goal then and now was to develop a top notch face-off training program. We are consistently tweaking our program and focus to give our students the most relevant and effective training.

Our willingness to teach players every aspect of the position is what separates the Face-Off Factory from other programs. Our goal is to not only create a dominant draw man, but a quarterback in the middle of the “X”. No one day event is going to make a player an instant success; however, all of the drills were designed so they can be replicated by the players on their own.

I highly recommend the FOF and Brian Burkhart.  First class outfits!”

The FOF has THE best individual coaching and mentors in the game in addition to some of the very best collegiate talent who participate at local and national camps with outstanding instruction.  Our son has improved his performance in a 4-month timeframe that has far exceeded our expectations.

FOF,
Thanks again for coming to Denver. Kagan really enjoyed the instruction and especially Coach Joe. He said it was the best clinic hes ever been to. We hope there are more opportunities here soon. There is definitely a gap for training in that aspect of the game for youth here in Denver. GREAT JOB FOF!!!
Hope to see you again soon.

The Face Off Factor camp was a great experience coached by a great group of guys.

You guys are great role model’s for my son.

Hi Max,

You worked with my son Dylan the other night, he's the one you gave the shaft to. I was wondering about further opportunities for him to train with you, he is over the moon about it. One of your students plays for my High School team and it is great to see how much better he has gotten over the last year. Thank you for working with my son Dylan, you and Coach Rak are great role model's for him.

Our guys totally control the Face-offs

The BLA board was also very pleased with all you both did with our kids. We are planning to keep in touch with you both as we would like to continue this relationship for additional training opportunities in the future.

Face Off Factory has been the best Lacrosse Instructional Tool for our Youth Teams.

Face Off Factory has been the best Lacrosse Instructional Tool for our Youth Teams. They are professional, hard working and have high expectations for their students. The coaches are highly qualified College Face-Off experts and teach all possible techniques. The best part of Face Off Factory is they care about what they are doing with a positive attitude by creating a positive atmosphere for learning. They are passionate and my players really respond to that and it shows because they are winning a lot more face-offs in games. Face Off Factory gets my highest recommendation.

Thanks for helping me with my mental game.

Hey Coach!

Just wanted to thank you again for referencing me back to the “Mental Game” Workout Wednesday video. Meditating and being more relaxed since then has helped me so much. I’m clamping faster on the whistle than I ever have before! Thank you so much for your help! I’m feeling really good headed into college now

Happy to say that I left having learned so many new strategies

I had the opportunity to attend the Face Off Factory ‘s Camp in Austin recently and am happy to say that I left having learned so many new strategies to use against my opponents.   I would highly recommend any lacrosse player who is interested in learning the various face off techniques required to master this position attend this camp. The lacrosse instructors who taught the camp did it in a very clear and concise manner that made it both fun and educational for all age levels. Being able to practice/compete with peers helps enforce the strategies they are teaching.  I definitely will attend this camp again.

The coaches have taken my game to the next level

I started Face Off Factory just about a year ago. I thought I knew how about face offs. I was wrong. The coaches have taken my game to the next level and more important, they are preparing me for High School Lacrosse in my techniques and in my mental approach to the game. They really care about me winning face-offs. They really care about me. I love my awesome coaches. There can’t be a better way to go about getting better at face-offs.

Good Luck with Your Season!

I personally wanted to thank you for doing a great job with your training sessions!! My son attended several of them and learned so much in such a short time. I wish he would have been able to attend more, but unfortunately we just seemed to have so many schedule conflicts…You do a great job with the kids and we are so happy we found you! My son will be the FOGO for his High School this year and is really excited about it.
His coach pulled him aside last night and asked if he could help with some drills that he learned from you!! He is very proud to have trained with you and you have earned great respect throughout many communities!

The difference in my son before and after training with The Faceoff Factory is incredible. His setup, quickness, and intensity are all improved. I'm excited to watching him flourish during the upcoming season.

Brady’s Bunch Regional

We have had many players from Face off factory play on our Brady’s Bunch Regional and National Teams.  more often than not these are some of the most polished and top face off players in any event we attend. College coaches are always asking questions and interested in our FOF players. We are proud to have a strong relationship with Face off Factory and their high level instructors.

My hands have become much quicker from what Faceoff Factory taught me.

"I started coming to Faceoff Factory this year to get my hands back after surgery. I'm reaching out to say Thank You for all the help in getting me to where I am. I was informed today that I will be a part of the UMass Lacrosse Team this year".

"I have used everything you taught me the last weeks of summer and my hands have become much quicker by repping it out over the last weeks of tryouts."

increased my faceoff IQ and helped me to apply that knowledge on the field.

The face-off-factory is a top notch clinic to improve your overall faceoff skills. I can speak from experience that attending this clinic very much improved my game. I learned multiple techniques which increased my faceoff IQ and helped me to apply that knowledge on the field. I recommend signing up for at least one of FOF’s sessions in order to fine tune your skills and learn new ones.

I learned a lot and I can’t wait to put what I learned into action during the season!

I had an amazing time at the faceoff factory combine in Orange County. All of the coaches are very skilled and they know how to teach all of the skills to the players. The one thing I was most pleased with was the fact that we were taught multiple moves. Most faceoff clinics specialize in teaching one move but at the faceoff factory we learned 3 or 4 different moves. Overall the camp was an excellent experience, I learned a lot and I can’t wait to put what I learned into action during the season!

Thank You for your support and help throughout my faceoff training. I appreciate you contacting the coach from the Naval Academy and letting him know who I am.

The FOF is very personalized

Dear FOF

I have had a few experiences with the Faceoff Factory, one with Coach Nardella and a few with Coach Massa. The FOF is very personalized and the coaches make it feel like they want to personally know you and know how you are doing, instead of taking your money giving you an hour of practice and not really caring like some of the clinics I have done. Each of the coaches I have had are good players, great coaches and even better people to be around, which makes practicing with them fun and you want to learn when you are around them. Overall, I have had many great training’s with the FOF, and I hope to continue to work with them in the future to help me get recruited. Keep up the good work Coaches!

I could not say enough good things about the Coaches and the instruction.

My comments: Hello.  My son, Robert Giancarlo, attended your January 2nd session in Camillus, New York.  On the two hour ride back home to Buffalo, Robert and I could not say enough good things about the Coaches and the instruction.  Throughout the day, Coach Andy stressed to the parents in attendance to keep in touch with the Coaches. Thanks! – Guy Giancarlo, NY
