A Handy Tool My daughter (age 9) wanted to play lacrosse this year. So I signed her up for a team. Sadly, they didn't have enough coaches for a U11 team...and I ended up doing it with absolutely no knowledge of the sport! This was my go-to for practice plans - I love how they drills are sorted, described, and illustrated. What would be helpful would be an additional section describing some of the more basic rules - drills on how to avoid shooting space infractions, for example.
Excellent resource The drills are really inventive and look to be a great way to make what are essentially "boring" drills into fun exercises for the players. I was familiar with some of them, but had never seen some of the others...
Great book for coaching youth lacrosse. Clear instructions for drills. Illustrations are simple but clear. I am glad that I bought this book. I can not wait to use these drills in practice. I would recommend this book to everyone coaching youth lacrosse.
