This competitive, multipurpose drill will give every player work on Dodging, individual man-on-man Defense and experience carrying the ball under pressure. Plus, it's a great way for coaches to teach parts of the Clear and Ride, all at the same time.
We spend a lot of time listening to what good Lacrosse Coaches are saying on the bench, and what we can hear players telling each other on the field or on TV. This "Lax Lingo" can be very helpful in communicating clearly with your players so that they know exactly what you mean and what you want them to do in a given situation. Being clear and concise with your players will get you much better results on the field than yelling uncertain terms like "Move!" and "Hustle!" from the sidelines over and over. So we want to share this "Lax Lingo" with all of you.
In today's installment of Lax Lingo we want to talk about field directions: "Up Field" and "Down Field". Both of these are simply to tell your players which way to go. This may seem like a no-brainer for most of us, but not for your players.
