Whether you're a new coach who's also new to lacrosse or a more experienced youth coach looking to fine tune your lacrosse practices, "How to Run a Youth Lacrosse Practice" will provide the tools you need to run a great practice.
You will learn what it takes to run a productive practice and get detailed instruction on each skill your players need to play lacrosse. This video includes skills and drills for U9 and U11 athletes.
This DVD covers four major skill areas for lacrosse players: passing, catching, cradling and shooting.
The U9 practice is built around teaching and drilling these important skills. You'll get six basic fundamental building drills to teach these skills and relay drills to end your practices in a fun, but competitive way.
The U11 practice utilizes the same skills and drills as the U9 practice with a few additional components. They add a goalie and work on 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 offensive and defensive work, progressing into a 4-on-4 setting that teaches both the offensive and defensive base principles.
The video includes a motion drill segment, that teaches the players how to move without the ball and react to pressure. A 6-on-6 team drill is included to work on the basic man offense and man defense principles acquired from all other drills.
Also included is a basic goalie workout and drills to prepare for face offs.
This DVD will give inexperienced coaches and parents a solid foundation for developing young lacrosse players.
