High school lacrosse season is coming. Soon.
Many coaches are turning to their state organizing body and/or US Lacrosse for drills and guidance as to how to structure practices over the course of a season.
I think this is a good place to start and am grateful that our sport has programs like this in place to help teach the fundamentals and sportsmanship of the game. I’ve been on the teaching and learning side of Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse, and it does an awesome job. Make sure you take advantage of MBYL’s online videos as well as learning seminars.
In addition to that, I want to share some ideas on how coaches can design or modify drills to make them feel customized and engaging, and still deliver key fundamentals of the game. Going to the same warm-up, stick drills, etc. will begin to feel mundane for players and coaches alike.
