In this video, assistant coaches Rynne and Holm break down five defensive practice drills step-by-step while also explaining common mistakes made by lacrosse defenseman and how to correct those mistakes. The coaches will show you how they tailor their defensive practice plans to always match the team's philosophy. Learn how to be more efficient with practice time by using numerous fundamental skills in each drill.
These drills will develop clearing actions and over passes for defenders for a fast break offense, on ball to off ball transition and communication, sliding and recovering and zoning up the crease, and more.
Discover the most important ways to defend individual players and the correct positioning of a defender's stick. The final drill, a 6-on-6 drill, uses a combination of the previous drills to create a game like, unsettled scrimmage for the players.
