Johns Hopkins Head Coach Janine Tucker Coaching Clinic and 
JGLA Membership Meeting

Greetings JGLA Members,

Well we have been talking about how we want to create more learning opportunities for our members and quite frankly we just hit the lottery as Janine Tucker the head coach at Johns Hopkins University is coming to NJ on November 1 at Drew University to run a coaches clinic. This event is being coordinated by US Lacrosse and Johns Hopkins, but NJ was selected as a location because of our growth and commitment to the game.

The JGLA is extremely excited that Coach Tucker is coming and sharing her knowledge with us. She is one of, if not the best, speaker on Women's Lacrosse and usually is the keynote speaker at the US Lacrosse Convention. She has written numerous books about the game and without question someone you should hear and learn from. The JGLA is going to pay $25.00 for each JGLA coach that attends the clinic as the clinic cost is $125.00.  So it will cost $100 for JGLA coaches. You can register for the clinic by clicking here Please use coupon code JGLA for the $25 discount.
