From skill fundamentals to managing a game, it covers all the bases in a clear, step-by-step format. At the heart of Coaching Boys' Lacrosse is a set of original drills designed to keep kids engaged and motivated while teaching them the subtleties of the game. This book has been endorsed by University of Maryland's renowned lacrosse coach, Dave Cottle, whose teams have been ranked in the top 10 nationally for 11 consecutive years.

From the Back Cover:

"A masterful, in-depth job."--Bill Tierney, head men's lacrosse coach, Princeton University

"The A to Z coaching manual for all youth levels of lacrosse. It covers areas like parental involvement that have never been covered before. . . . I recommend it to the entire lacrosse community."--Dave Cottle, head men's lacrosse coach, University of Maryland

Coach. You just volunteered to coach your son's lacrosse team, and you don't know a cross check from a body check or the crease from the centerline. Don't despair--Coaching Boys' Lacrosse is here to help.

From your first team meeting to equipment needs to dealing with officials, Coaching Boys' Lacrosse will get you started--and keep you going. You'll learn the basics of lacrosse, plus how to teach the fundamental skills of passing and catching, scooping, dodging, and shooting through the "games approach," which enhances team communication and decision-making skills. Drills for offensive and defensive strategies are also included, and you'll even learn to develop your own coaching style--one that works best for you and your players. Before you know it, you'll be coaching players who are moving, motivated, and most of all, having fun.

  • Survive your first practice and game
  • Promote good habits, concentration, and teamwork
  • Find answers to common problems in the Q & A sections
  • Match drills to age and ability
  • Get tips on creating a positive attitude, building team spirit, and getting along with parents
  • Make practices fun and rewarding

"A must-read for the many new players, parents, and coaches."--John Grubb, head lacrosse coach, North Harford High School

"Provides all youth coaches and players with a plan for success."--Gary Ritz, Bel Air (Maryland) Recreation Council

"A reference designed to help all levels of coaches and players be successful."--Duncan Booth, Cockeysville (Maryland) Recreation Council
