Dennis Short's Coaching Lacrosse 2-Pack
LXD-04329A: with Dennis Short, Rollins College Head Women's Lacrosse Coach; Took Rollins from startup program to Division II Final Four in just five yearsDennis Short packs more lacrosse into a one-hour practice than some teams manage all week. In this live - and intense - Rollins College practice, every player gets a "built-in" conditioning workout while she gets hundreds of touches on the ball. Coach Short demonstrates several fast paced drills that will change the way you practice. In this DVD you will see: Progressive Multi-Partner Stick Drills Guaranteed Game Speed 1 v 1 Aggressive Defensive Techniques Effective Doubling Strategies Fast Offensive Ball MovementThis DVD features a practice plan worth of small-sided drills you can use to multiply your players' game-speed reps. In addition to seeing the nationally-ranked Rollins College team execute these drills in a real-time, live practice, Coach Short whiteboards each drill and explains its purpose and key coaching points.Nine drills are presented that can be tailored to accommodate different levels of experience. For example, through the application of a basic four corner box drill, Short has elevated the ordinary Line and Shuttle Drills to be so much more. His drills go far beyond building simple stick skills. The "Three on One" and "Three Around One" drills will help players develop field awareness, footwork and communication, reinforce "give and go" passing and quick decision making, and build player proficiency in stick passing and catching. Coaches can apply the framework of these two drills to more efficiently exercise the skills you currently practice in line and shuttle drills. Through well structured drills Coach Short easily creates a competitive atmosphere. Players push themselves at game speed in an effort to best their opponents. Fast and strategic ball movement is pitted against aggressive defensive techniques that call on defenders to double the ball in certain situations and use the goalie as an added defender in a manner that creates a surprising number of turnovers. The entire practice series is suitable for players of any age, experience level, or scheme, and can be easily incorporated into your existing practice plan. Coach Short's philosophy of fast-paced drills and coaching "on the fly" creates high-tempo, competitive practices. Your players will never know what hit them when you implement these intense practice drills - and neither will your competition!78 minutes. 2013.LXD-04329B: with Dennis Short, Rollins College Head Women's Lacrosse Coach;Took Rollins from startup program to Division II Final Four in just five years; In 2012 Rollins had the #2 Scoring Offense and #4 Scoring Defense in the countryDennis Short has used the attacking, doubling defense detailed in this video to take the Rollins women's lacrosse program from a startup in 2008 to a perennial Division II power. Coach Short walks you through everything needed to implement his two aggressive pressure defensive schemes; Zone Pressure and Man Pressure.This signature defense forces offenses out of their comfort zones and allows defenders to: Dictate play to the offense, rather than reacting Disrupt any offense's timing and rhythm Create turnovers and get into transition Take advantage of the defense's natural "man-up" advantage by getting the goalie into the playThis defensive concept is built on a few straightforward concepts and drills that can be implemented at the high school level -- and even the youth level.Coach Short begins with whiteboard overviews of both man-to-man and zone versions of the pressure defense, and then proceeds to live on-field demonstrations. Coaches with athletic goalies will really enjoy seeing the way Short turns his keepers loose and encourages them to defend out of the crease.After providing the overview of these defenses in action, Short's squad demonstrates four small-side practice drills you can use to develop the skills and knowledge required to implement the defenses effectively. The drills operate at a variety of tempos with the focus alternatin[...]

The Encyclopedia of Faceoffs
with Kevin Donahue, Syracuse University Assistant Lacrosse Coach;
member of 11 National Championship teams; 2001 Jay Gallagher Award as the nation's top Division I assistant coach; 3x All American midfielder at Syracuse

In the game of lacrosse, every possession counts. If your team can grab 4-5 extra possessions per game, it can be the difference between winning and losing.

Kevin Donahue, one of the Orangemen's all-time great players and coaches, presents an exhaustive three part reference for coaches at every level - as well as developing lacrosse players.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FACEOFFS AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT FACEOFF MAN
Quick hands, a quick mind, physical strength and an insatiable desire to win make for a lethal combination at the faceoff X. Coach Donahue provides a detailed explanation of the importance of faceoffs and what he looks for in an ideal faceoff man.

CLAMPS AND COUNTERS
Learn the basic concepts of hand and foot positioning. Hand and foot placement is not universal for every face off. As Donahue explains, there are subtle differences to better support each particular move. In a series of live, on-field demonstrations, Donahue walks you through all the primary moves in today's game:

  • The Clamp and its variations: The Plunger Clamp, Pinch Clamp, and Snap Clamp
  • Three different Jam moves to counter a quick-clamping opponent
  • The Lazer, the Rake, the Reverse Clamp, and the desperation Swim Move
Coach Donahue leaves no aspect of the "game within the game" unexamined. He delivers every detail you need to correctly execute a clamp, to build muscle memory and to avoid common mistakes.

Building on these initial moves, Donahue quickly develops a wide range of techniques suitable for any player's skill level. To defend against these moves, counters are shown includings Chops, Handle Jams and Sweeps.

He unlocks the tactical contest of the faceoff, explaining in minute detail the technique required for each move, the proper hand and foot placement to support it, the advantages and drawbacks to different moves, and the most frequent errors to watch out for. Plus, how each move shifts into "Phase Two" when neither player has cleanly won the draw.

TEAM DRILLS
Discover drills for training faceoff men in a live practice session. Donahue uses a progressive method for drilling faceoffs: From individual drills to 1v1 to 3v3 (adding wing players).

These are the drills the Syracuse faceoff unit repeats daily to hone quickness and muscle memory for flawless execution. Competitive drills thrust players into game-like faceoff scenarios that continue to stress excellent technique, like sealing out to secure a ground ball and countering a strong clamper.

Drills include:

  • Ground Ball Drill - Develops finding the ball and communication skills.
  • Box Out Drill - Reinforces body position for success.
  • Primary Move - Provides the faceoff men the opportunity to work on speed off the whistle.
  • Partner Warm Up - Provides resistance and counter practice.
  • The Bull Drill - Helps the faceoff man counter a clamper.
  • Team Drills - Get a live box out drill for wings, live 3 v 3 drills, and a Best-Out-of-Seven Drill.
Every point covered throughout the DVD goes beyond simply telling you how to do a given technique. Coach Donahue takes the time to explain why he prefers one move or position over another, what type of stick and head may be required and the best situations for each move.

This densely-packed 70-minute DVD packs everything you need to mold a dominant faceoff man--even if you've never taken a draw yourself. With face-off play being such a vital part of the modern game this DVD could be the catalyst to take your program to the next level.

Winning Offensive Sets & Drills for Lacrosse
with Cindy Timchal, U.S. Naval Academy Head Coach;
8x National Championship Coach at Maryland (seven consecutive), 2x National Coach of the Year, 400 career victories; all-time winningest coach in Division I Lacrosse history

From individual skills to offensive sets, this DVD provides a complete package of training to improve your offensive attack.

Stickwork & Footwork Drills
Get stickwork and footwork drills that Timchal has used to create championship teams throughout her illustrious career. A few examples of these drills include:

  • Hard Passing Drill - Works on passing, catching and getting into triple threat position. Variations train for weakside catches and backing out of pressure.
  • Big Box Shuffle Passing Drill - This challenging drill uses quick stick passing and shuffling to prepare players to pass and receive in situations they will see in games.
  • Pressure Stickwork Drill - Prepares attackers for high pressure defense and double teams.
Offensive Build Up Drills
See the drills Timchal uses to build up to her offensive sets. 2-on-2 pick on the ball, 2-on-2 pick and roll, and the 3-on-3 with a feeder. These build-up drills train your attackers how to handle game situations, to produce hard cuts that are difficult to defend, and to finish their attacks. These drills serve a dual purpose, as they are effective in training your individual defense as well.

Offensive Sets
Learn the basic movements of three popular offenses: Motion Offense, Triangle Offense and the Crisscross Offense. Timchal shares her philosophy on when to use each offense based on what the defense is running.

Timchal's Motion Offense features features the crease dodger, back door cuts, isolations, drawing doubles, inside feeds and shots. She utilizes this offense against tight shell defenses.

The Triangle Offense gives you good balance. It places players behind the goal, post, and along the perimeter on both sides of the cage, allowing you to attack from the left, right and behind the net. Timchal explains why it's effective against intense pressure.

When an opponent is using a combination of the shell and power defenses (Blue Bird Defense), Timchal uses the Crisscross Offense. This offense can be used against all three types of defenses as it incorporates a double pick on the ball and a single pick on the ball.

Timchal also reveals her "Special" set to get the ball to her best player when she is being face-guarded by defense.

This DVD provides compelling insight into the drills and sets used by the all-time winningest coach in Division I Lacrosse history.

In his first seven years at the helm, Ricky Fried has guided Georgetown to five Big East Conference Championships and five appearances in the NCAA Tournament. His success is the result of building fundamentals through drill work.

After a quick explanation of stick handling fundamentals, you will see eight, small drill progressions--with and without a goal. As your players progress, these progressions allow you to add defenders to make the drills more challenging.

Fried's drills will help train your players to:

  • Make quick decisive passes with direct routs
  • Read the defense quicker to make the best pass
  • Look off the defense to get a clear passing lane to the correct attacker
  • Improve their peripheral vision and more
Fried delivers an overview of his motion offensive system on the marker board and on the field. This interchanging offense allows your athletes to quickly get organized off a break and attack the defense before they get organized. It gives players the freedom to make plays and emphasizes movement without the ball.

Keep defenses at bay by training your athletes in these essential lacrosse skills!

Progressive Drills for Building the 2-2-2 Offense
with Jim Stagnitta, University of Pennsylvania Assistant Coach;former Denver Outlaws Head Coach, 2013 MLL Coach of the Year, 2013 MLL Runners-Up;former Rutgers University Head CoachAs one of the winningest active coaches in the country, Jim Stagnitta's success has come from his ability to be efficient on the offensive end of the field with the 2-2-2 Offense. The 2-2-2 allows you to maximize the ability of all your players, breaking them into three separate groups to attack as a unit behind the goal, in the crease and up top.In this on-field DVD, Coach Stagnitta shows you his progression for building his 2-2-2 offense. This easy-to-follow progression works the team as three groups before bringing it all together. Warm-up DrillsLearn warm-up drills that will get your entire team involved (including the goalies). These fast paced drills move up and down the field to simulate an unsettled situation. This is an excellent drill that combines a number of line drills with one full-field drill that lets you see the entire field at once. In addition, Stagnitta runs his players through a 2-man Shooting Drill. This is a two-part drill that puts players in dodge and shoot situations they will find themselves in in a 2-2-2 offense:Part 1) works the behind the net and up top players. The focus is to work together to balance the field and shorten the pass lanes. This teaches the players to follow, throw the ball against pressure, dodge hard and understand spacing. Part 2) works with the players inside focusing on timing of cuts, spacing and finishing from the inside (sealing, quick release).Building a 2-2-2 OffenseThe warm up drills take Stagnitta into his 5 Drills for Building the 2-2-2 Offense. These drills help build the offensive system of play, but also work your defensive play. The drills are shown live on the field with his team as Coach Stagnitta talks you through the drills and the principles for the offense. DRILL 1 - Live 2-on-2: Step one of breaking down the 2-2-2. This drill takes the shooting drill to the next level - having the the high and low players work together as a unit. Focuses on keeping the offense balanced with proper spacing between the two players, setting and using three types of picks and dodging hard and quick to create a lane or a shot. This allows you to work on two spots - the high and low, as well as defense - on one side of the field. DRILL 2 - Live 4-on-4: (Perimeter Balance): The next step in building the 2-2-2 is putting the top and bottom players together so each group understands what the other is doing when they are attacking. This drill focuses on balancing the perimeter, spacing (opening up) and reading the dodge. Here, you incorporate slides and reads, which forces your offensive units to adjust accordingly. Also, in a 2-2-2 the passing lanes can be long, so this drill helps the offense close those lanes to make easier, safer passes. DRILL 3 - Live 4-on-4 (Inside Crease): Here you start live crease play by adding the two midfielders to the two attackmen. Working on the two attackmen and their three pick options, the two middies focus on sealing their man and popping outside, creating opportunity for the inside (that may open up shots for the attackmen behind). The drill also works on timing, cutting and reading the lanes. DRILL 4 - Survivor Drill: This drill places all four corners and the inside players together to focus on inside play. This drill is great at breaking down inside play and helping the perimeter players find open teammates inside. This also teaches the inside players where to set themselves based on ball movement on the outside. Finally, it forces the inside players to handle the ball in "tough" si[...]

Line Drills: A two-ball drill that forces good communication and field awareness.

Concepts involved are stick work, shooting, communication, finishing, ground balls and playing unsettled defense. Keeps everyone on the team involved and active. Live 3-on-2 Ground ball Drill: Forces the offensive players to handle the ball in a pressure situation - both offensively and defensively. Works on reading the situation, collecting the ground ball, finding open player and finishing quickly. Continuous 5-on-4 (Full field) Drill: Works on quick clears to outlets, pace of the game, stick work, communication, all unsettled situations and reinforces your offense and defense patterns. Forces the players to play fast, move the ball quickly and make reads. Also fine tunes the communication and rotations the defense will need to make. Clearing Drill: A great way to use your whole team. Works on clearing patterns from an outlet, unsettled offense, transitioning from your clear to recognizing and reading an unsettled situation. Includes long passes for the defensemen, over the shoulder break outs off shots and any other aspects of the game you want to include. Staggered Start Drill: Transition into 6-on-6 offense as you would in a game. Defense gets in a hole first, and then has to check up. The offense can jump into an unsettled situation, but if it's not there can transition into your 6-on-6 offense.Stagnitta demonstrates a variety of live drills that add conditioning and competitiveness to your practices.

Starsia provides priceless lacrosse knowledge as he coaches and teaches his players and shares coaching points for the drills and concepts he uses.

You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's practice can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!
