Get the most out of your practice time with game-speed drills that combine skill development with a conditioning element.
Jim Berkman, 2008 NCAA D-III National Coach of the Year, opens up his practice notebook and demonstrates over 30 drills to develop complete lacrosse players. These game-like drills run the gamut from individual skills work to small sided games to full field scrimmages.
Berkman's drills reinforce ground ball play, clearing in unsettled situations, rotation defense, stick speed and hand quickness, shooting in a tight space, breaking out wide, up field vision, recognizing rides and much more.
His drills create a fast-paced practice that eliminates down time and will teach your players to play at a pace that will take your opponents out of their comfort zone.
These drills will put your players in game-like situations forcing them to play fast and improving their mental focus, their lacrosse IQ and their physical effort. By improving your squad's lacrosse IQ, your team will appear faster on the field. They will see things develop, instead of reacting to what happens.
Incorporate these proven, time-tested drills and maximize your time on the practice field.
