New York, September 2, 2011 – Maverik Lacrosse today released “Start Up,” its latest instructional video in the Maverik University video series starring standout MLL/NLL defenseman and University of Minnesota Head Coach Joe Cinosky. In “Start Up,” the former All-American and team captain at the University of Maryland offers situational insight on how to play an end line restart in the defensive zone. Stay tuned for Part 2 of the Maverik U defensive videos, “Set Up,” which also features Joe Cinosky.
“As a defenseman it’s important to always be aware of your surroundings, recognize the needs of your teammates, and be ready to take your man one-on-one” said Joe, who will be hosting a Fall Camp for high school players in Minnesota next week.

“Having moved to Minnesota 2 years ago, I have had the opportunity to experience the growth of the sport first hand. Maverik’s instructional series is a great resource to young players especially in the Midwest who may not otherwise have the chance to see different styles and techniques as I did growing up in New Jersey, ” added Cinosky.
Cinosky’s lacrosse career highlights include being a member of Team USA which won the gold at the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England and winning a Major League Lacrosse Championship with the Toronto Nationals in 2009 and also with the Chesapeake Bayhawks in 2010. Joe currently plays professionally for the Chesapeake Bayhawks in Major League Lacrosse and for the Minnesota Swarm in the NLL. Cinosky’s high school career was equally as impressive. Joe was a 2X High School Defenseman of the Year, 2X All-American and was instrumental in Mountain Lakes High School capturing the New Jersey State Championship his senior year.
