CLNC Visit with Brent Adams and Nick Ossello

December 06, 2019
Brent Adams, Nick Ossello, and the CLNC crew stopped by City Lax HQ to run a high intensity training for City Lax boys.

It's always a pleasure having Brent Adams and Nick Ossello work with the kids. Both Brent and Nick are elite level players and coaches. Right from the start of the training, they broke down each skill, harped the fundamentals, and challenged each player.

The training finished off with an in-depth Q&A where both Brent and Nick were able to speak to their youth, high school, college, and professional playing experiences, as well as their high school and collegiate coaching experience, and the importance of academics and being a good person!

"Having that balance of school work and then the lacrosse aspect of it is the biggest part of not only college lacrosse, but sports in general. We can't play the sports we love unless we have the foundation of school. If we don't excel and participate in that then everything else falls a part." - Brent Adams
