In the Xaverian soccer clinic, we focus on each players' technical skills and tactical awareness through individual and group training. Players are encouraged and instructed to play with imagination and technical execution appropriate to each individual's ability level. Training activities introduce defensive and offensive principles while maintaining an emphasis on technical fundamentals. The clinic is run by Garrett Bowers, Xaverian's head soccer coach since 2001. Coach Bowers holds a National USSF License, a NSCAA National Diploma, and a NSCAA Goalkeeping Diploma.
The baseball clinic introduces age-appropriate drill work as well as in-game situational awareness to all of the young athletes in attendance. We cover the finer points of a mechanically sound baseball swing as well as introduce a baseball-specific training routine that players can employ in their own time. Players will learn position-specific drills that are reinforced during scrimmages throughout the week. The clinic will be run by Coach Manning. Coach Manning is a science teacher at Xaverian as well as a graduate of the school (Class of 2009). He has experience working with students from sixth grade through the high school level as a teacher at Boston College, in Cambridge Public Schools, and now at Xaverian. A lifelong student of the game, and with experience at all positions, he knows what it takes to improve as a player athletically, offensively, defensively, and as a pitcher.
