Iannucci is coming to Fort St. John with hopes of expanding the game of lacrosse in northern communities.

“I’m pretty familiar with the dynamics of B.C. Lacrosse and I know they don’t get a lot of love up there,” said Iannucci.

The camp will focus on the fundamentals of lacrosse, including shooting mechanics, passing, dodging, footwork, conditioning and more. In addition to to the fundamentals, Iannucci will have the kids work on the most specific details to enhance their game.

“We’re really focusing on the smallest of things, like how you hold your stick, where you put your thumb or finger,” said Iannucci. “Just the tiniest little things that most people overlook if they don’t have 30 plus years of lacrosse experience.”

The camp costs $100 for two days of lacrosse training and is welcome to all children under the age of 17.

Iannucci is also inviting coaches from around the area to come to the camp for a coaching clinic. The clinic is free of charge and aims to help improve coaches training methods as well as strategies.
