Improve your players' confidence and cohesiveness by focusing on fundamentals is compact situations.
In his first seven years at the helm, Ricky Fried has guided Georgetown to five Big East Conference Championships and five appearances in the NCAA Tournament. His success is the result of building fundamentals through drill work.
After a quick explanation of stick handling fundamentals, you will see eight, small drill progressions--with and without a goal. As your players progress, these progressions allow you to add defenders to make the drills more challenging.
Fried's drills will help train your players to:
- Make quick decisive passes with direct routs
- Read the defense quicker to make the best pass
- Look off the defense to get a clear passing lane to the correct attacker
- Improve their peripheral vision and more
Fried delivers an overview of his motion offensive system on the marker board and on the field. This interchanging offense allows your athletes to quickly get organized off a break and attack the defense before they get organized. It gives players the freedom to make plays and emphasizes movement without the ball.
Keep defenses at bay by training your athletes in these essential lacrosse skills!
