DENVER — The Denver Outlaws on Tuesday named Defensive Coordinator Matt Bocklet as the Outlaws Lacrosse Academy Manager for high school and youth level lacrosse players in addition to announcing a year-long slate of events.
The Outlaws Lacrosse Academy will begin with High School & Youth Summer Team Tryouts this Saturday-Sunday from 9am-6pm at UCHealth Training Center’s Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse (13655 E Broncos Pkwy, Englewood, CO 80112). Tryouts for the Colorado Outlaws Summer Teams will be open to Boys teams with graduation years 2020 (current 11th graders) through 2028 (current 3rd graders) and Girls teams currently in sixth through eighth grade.
The year-long slate of events through Outlaws Academy will include elite level training camps, a series of professionally produced tournaments and a college recruiting showcase for high school players. Led by Bocklet, Outlaws Academy will incorporate Major League Lacrosse Players from the Denver Outlaws with unique one-on-one instructions and interactions for all participants.
Bocklet, who was a five-time All Star and three-time Champion in his 11-year Major League Lacrosse Career, brings a wealth of coaching and operations experience at the youth level to the Outlaws Academy. He will oversee all aspects of the program, including a partnership between DoCo Lacrosse Club and Outlaws Academy that will utilize resources from both organizations to provide a premium lacrosse experience.
“I would like to thank Mac Freeman and the Denver Outlaws for this opportunity,” Bocklet said. “It has been special to be a part of the Outlaws family these past 10 years as a player, and I now look forward to the opportunity to continue working with the organization as Manager of the Outlaws Academy.
“Our goal is to offer a preeminent program to the Colorado youth and high school lacrosse community that will provide an unparalleled experience through the partnered resources of DoCo Lacrosse Club and Outlaws Academy.”
