We ran this great transition drill at our first practice of the season. The kids loved running full-field sprints back and forth for 15 minutes since we were playing a "game" of Fast Breaks instead of running a "drill". Tons of reps and tons of fun with this one.
We saw a youth team from Texas run this same Man-Up Play four or five times successfully in one game at a tournament in California last weekend. Try this simple play in practice and games to get easy looks right in front of the goal.
The 4-on-3 Fast Break happens multiple times in every lacrosse game, especially with youth and beginners. No matter what level you coach, it's critical you teach all your offensive and defensive players to recognize and respond to this common situation properly. Make sure your team understands how to work the numbers advantage so they can score!
