Why we are a little Different

I read this article today…see below link and it made me wonder are we doing everything for our kids and parents in our program.  I would like to say yes.

Articles like this disturb me as we continue to hear about good people leaving sports because of over zealous people and entitled players.

I had the pleasure of speaking at the US Lacrosse Idaho Chapter, Coaches Clinic this past weekend.  Terrific group of people who are trying to do things the right ...

Tough enough

As our spring season draws near I wanted our Mom’s and Dad’s to understand a little different part of the game and how to feel about seeing your son get checked with a stick.

I have seen many things in our beloved-ed game.  I used to hear people say ” I can hit that kid with the stick” or “I love this game, it’s just like Football with sticks”.  I detest comments like these because that is not what the game ...

Mary Jo, sent me an article recently on how soldiers train to be Navy SEAL’s.  While I don’t profess to know anything about military training the article pointed out many things that all of us can do when faced with challenges.

Position Spotlight – Midfield (Offense)

This weeks Position Spotlight is Midfield Offense:

As I stated in our midfield post last week the midfielder (middie) is the work horse of the team. They need to have good stick skills, good endurance, and be able to play offense and defense. They have to be able to communicate while on the run, and most of all they need to bring the intensity.

The midfielder is constantly going, they never stop running. They should be good dodgers, and be able to ...

Position Spotlight – Midfield

This weeks Position Spotlight is Midfield:

Since being a midfielder involves several different skills both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.  This week will will focus on defense.

Midfielders have to do it all.  They are the cornerstones of every lacrosse team.  They have to play offense and defense, ride and clear and most importantly pickup and retain ground balls.

As a midfielder in High School I relished the idea of being able to play defense as it allows a ...

Position Spotlight – Defense

This weeks position spotlight is DEFENSE:

Over the years of coaching I have seen a lot of great defensive players and all of them have a few traits that I believe are important.

2. Relentless on ball

3. Always looking around the field (keeping head on a swivel)

4. Have great stick skills

5. Great stance and posture

While there are many other traits a defense-men needs to excel at the position these are some that always stand out.  Some teams are lucky ...
