    with Ivan Cohen,
    2014 German National Team Goaltending Coach for the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championships

    Assistant Coach Ivan Cohen and members of the 2014 German National Team staff demonstrate 13 fundamental goalkeeping drills that Team Germany used to prepare for the 2014 World Games.

    Beginning with the proper stance and hand position on the stick, Coach Cohen demonstrates how the goalie stick should be held. He shares ways to reduce rebounds and track down the shot. Using a series of drills - from a simple ball toss to situational toss to using the handle of a short stick - Coach Cohen offers a step-by-step discussion on how to successfully increase hand eye coordination while adding a conditioning element.

    Coach Cohen shares a series of six drills designed progressively warm-up the goalie. He begins by having the shooter move back and forth on an arc about 8-10 yards away shooting five shots each systematically working high to low and strong hand to offhand. These drills focus on handling different shots from different angles using body placement to handle every type of shot. Shot angles include corner shots, time and room, bounce shots and shots coming from around the corner and inside.

    Coach Cohen puts goalies through a series of breakout passing drills throwing long and outside to on a line to the inside while under pressure. He uses basic field player triangle catching drills to train goalies how to switch hands. Finally, he shows how to play when pressed on the clear and how to reduce the chance for mistakes.

    Any coach or player can instantly transfer these drills to their own team to increase the skills and performance of their goalies.

    Introduction by Bill Harkins,
    Florida State University Head Lacrosse Coach,
    German National Team Assistant Coach

    Coaches Kaley and Harkins collaborate to bring you this outstanding DVD on Pressure Zone Defense. Coach Kaley shares his philosophy behind his successful pressure zone defense. Overall, this philosophy is based on three elements: offense, defense and riding. All three are geared to force the opposition to make specific preparation for Kaley-coached teams. Pressure and cutting off passing lanes are the keys to this aggressive approach. Through a marker board presentation and on-field demonstrations, Kaley highlights three pressure spots: two top, two side, and crease behind. He stresses the value of practicing 6 vs. 5, leading up to implementing the team zone attack. Adjustments have been a big part of Kaley's philosophy and winning program. He shares his most powerful adjustments as he describes the Black call, Fire call, and the 500's. An all out application of pressure is the result of the "Red" call. An experienced strategist, Kaley feels that his adjustments make opponents adjust to him. The Pressure Zone Defense is one of the major aspects of his incredible success in collegiate lacrosse! Developed by combining pressure to his winning "man down" scheme, this defense will provide an edge to the coaches who adopt it.

    with Will Scudder, Lehigh University Assistant Coach/Face-Off Coordinator;
    as a player at Lehigh he won 54 percent of his face-offs

    introduction by Kevin Cassese, Lehigh University Head Coach

    The better you are at face offs, the more possessions your team will control. Concentrating on two classic face-off techniques, Lehigh Assistant Coach Will Scudder presents each exercise efficiently and progressively from its most basic components though the completion of winning the ground ball created by the face-off win.

    With a clear, step-by-step explanation of each movement, Coach Scudder presents a mechanically well developed, consistent training plan that will challenge advanced players while instructing and building confidence in less experienced athletes.

    The Clamp
    Utilizing a low stance and sinking your hips for leverage, Coach Scudder emphasizes the most important rule concerning the positioning of your top rail for winning the clamp. To support this movement, the mechanics are carefully explained while they are performed first slowly then more quickly with each successful repetition. Successful completion of this technique is apparent when superior leverage beginning with first contact is demonstrated. This includes proper body positioning, hand and feet position so as not to create a rule violation.

    The Jam and Re-Jam
    The initial move over the ball is crucial to be able to win a face off with a jam. Leading to that first move is the discipline necessary to consistently maintain a low and explosive position in an effort to catch your opponent off guard. Remaining vigilant against your opponent may allow you to re-jam your opponent in an effort to keep him guessing at what you will do.

    Face Off Drills
    Coach Scudder shares several drills to reinforce face-off mechanics and improve wing play, including:

    • Whistle Timing Drill - Helps player get comfortable at spending longer time in their ready stance.
    • Ball Bucket Pops - Building the skill of popping the ball forward. Perform an individual face-off, pick up ground ball and place ball into bucket.
    • Smasher Pad Ground Balls - Perform an individual face-off, pick up ground ball and then coach pressures you with a blocking pad.

    This presentation also includes a drill for training wing players to box out and pick up ground balls off the face off.

    This is a great DVD to begin to build any face-off man at any level and preaches the most important parts of the face-off-consistency.

    with Lars Tiffany,
    Brown University Head Men's Lacrosse Coach;
    2x Ivy League Champions

    Coach Tiffany has a great understanding of what it takes to be great on defense - he was a 2-time team captain and starter on defense for three years under Dom Starsia (now niversity of Virginia head coach) at Brown. Good communication between the six defensemen and the goalie are required to create strong team defense. The goalie's only goal is to watch the ball and communicate to the on ball defender. The off ball defenders determine the slides. The 'hot player' designates himself as 'hot' and asks his teammates to fill and second slide. Other verbal calls dictate the slide patterns: crease/crease, crease/adjacent, adjacent/adjacent, and cross crease. Slide scheme development starts with the 1 v 1 decision-making drill and progresses to a full catalog of drills that include 2 v 1, 2 v 2 with an outlet, etc. On the field, Tiffany begins with on ball play. Decision-making is the key part of team scheme development. The first slide, second slide, third slide and recovery are all demonstrated in drills on the field. The DVD finishes with game clips of 6 v 6 defense, demonstrating a variety of slide packages.

  • with Kevin Donahue, Syracuse University Assistant Lacrosse Coach;
    member of 11 National Championship teams; 2001 Jay Gallagher Award as the nation's top Division I assistant coach; 3x All American midfielder at Syracuse

    In the game of lacrosse, every possession counts. If your team can grab 4-5 extra possessions per game, it can be the difference between winning and losing.

    Kevin Donahue, one of the Orangemen's all-time great players and coaches, presents an exhaustive three part reference for coaches at every level - as well as developing lacrosse players.

    THE IMPORTANCE OF FACEOFFS AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT FACEOFF MAN
    Quick hands, a quick mind, physical strength and an insatiable desire to win make for a lethal combination at the faceoff X. Coach Donahue provides a detailed explanation of the importance of faceoffs and what he looks for in an ideal faceoff man.

    CLAMPS AND COUNTERS
    Learn the basic concepts of hand and foot positioning. Hand and foot placement is not universal for every face off. As Donahue explains, there are subtle differences to better support each particular move. In a series of live, on-field demonstrations, Donahue walks you through all the primary moves in today's game:

    • The Clamp and its variations: The Plunger Clamp, Pinch Clamp, and Snap Clamp
    • Three different Jam moves to counter a quick-clamping opponent
    • The Lazer, the Rake, the Reverse Clamp, and the desperation Swim Move
    Coach Donahue leaves no aspect of the "game within the game" unexamined. He delivers every detail you need to correctly execute a clamp, to build muscle memory and to avoid common mistakes.

    Building on these initial moves, Donahue quickly develops a wide range of techniques suitable for any player's skill level. To defend against these moves, counters are shown includings Chops, Handle Jams and Sweeps.

    He unlocks the tactical contest of the faceoff, explaining in minute detail the technique required for each move, the proper hand and foot placement to support it, the advantages and drawbacks to different moves, and the most frequent errors to watch out for. Plus, how each move shifts into "Phase Two" when neither player has cleanly won the draw.

    TEAM DRILLS
    Discover drills for training faceoff men in a live practice session. Donahue uses a progressive method for drilling faceoffs: From individual drills to 1v1 to 3v3 (adding wing players).

    These are the drills the Syracuse faceoff unit repeats daily to hone quickness and muscle memory for flawless execution. Competitive drills thrust players into game-like faceoff scenarios that continue to stress excellent technique, like sealing out to secure a ground ball and countering a strong clamper.

    Drills include:

    • Ground Ball Drill - Develops finding the ball and communication skills.
    • Box Out Drill - Reinforces body position for success.
    • Primary Move - Provides the faceoff men the opportunity to work on speed off the whistle.
    • Partner Warm Up - Provides resistance and counter practice.
    • The Bull Drill - Helps the faceoff man counter a clamper.
    • Team Drills - Get a live box out drill for wings, live 3 v 3 drills, and a Best-Out-of-Seven Drill.
    Every point covered throughout the DVD goes beyond simply telling you how to do a given technique. Coach Donahue takes the time to explain why he prefers one move or position over another, what type of stick and head may be required and the best situations for each move.

    This densely-packed 70-minute DVD packs everything you need to mold a dominant faceoff man--even if you've never taken a draw yourself. With face-off play being such a vital part of the modern game this DVD could be the catalyst to take your program to the next level.

    with Dave Cottle,
    Chesapeake Bayhawks (MLL) Head Coach;
    former University of Maryland Men's Lacrosse Coach;
    #3 in wins (active coaches);
    3 NCAA Semifinal appearances (2003, 2005 and 2006); 2x ACC Coach of the Year

    A true innovator in college lacrosse, Coach Cottle tackles the difficult task of presenting zone offense with clarity and ease. This carefully crafted DVD is delivered with marker board diagrams and outstanding on-field demonstrations. Coach Cottle highlights several zone offenses to prepare your team for any defense. Tips for success focus on teaching freelance 1-4-1 zone offense before adding other components. Starting with the fundamentals, Cottle points out four individual and team skills needed for solid zone play and then discusses the 2-2-2, 1-4-1, 2-3-1 and circle formations. The advantages of this system include: Improved passing skills, a focus on taking good shots, enhanced play in the crease, and additional structure to your zone attack. Because opponents can execute a variety of zone defenses, Coach Cottle believes in having several different attacks. Discussion centers on many different formations and how spacing can change formations for maximum effectiveness. These changes are illustrated when shifting from the 1-4-1 to the 1-3-2, and from the 2-3-1 to the 3-3. From these formations players can carry from any of the areas. Another strategy discussed is the "3-3 combo", which adds a pick to the carry, roll off and pop off. The information, teaching points, and drills are useful for lacrosse coaches at any level.

    introduction by Kevin Cassese, Lehigh University Head Coach

    Lehigh consistently ranks in the Top 10 nationally in goal against average. In this presentation, Chad Surman shares drills and coaching instructions for developing the long-pole lacrosse player. By progressively combining individual footwork, stick, ground ball and shooting techniques, this presentation helps build the "complete" long-pole player.

    Coach Surman shares a series of challenging individual training techniques and competitive drills. Wall ball and ladder drills specifically designed for the long-pole player teaches them how to better handle the ball in transition, making players stronger in offensive and defensive situations.

    Stickwork Drills
    Beginning with the a series of wall ball reps to build confidence and skills, Coach Surman shares stick-handling drills to help with fielding ground balls, passing and check motions. The ground ball drills teach players how to feel their opponents and move into open space after recovering the ground ball. The check motion drills feature the M, W, Figure 8 and Circle movements to develop control and quickness. Coach Surman also gives a series of approach-and-recover drills that develop quick hands in the passing lanes using the stick-handling skills to help knock down passes. Individual exercises are presented that players can perform on their own as well as advanced checking techniques. Team drills performed at full speed bring all of the techniques together.

    Footwork Drills
    Coach Surman then takes the viewer through a series of drills using a ladder to build speed and quickness, and then adds drills to develop approach and recovery speed and control while providing game-like scenarios.

    Game Situation Drills
    Building on the stick-handling and footwork drills used earlier, Coach Surman shares drills tying in approach and recovery, breakouts, transition footwork and double team drills to build the defensive skills necessary for long-stick midfielders and close defenseman.

    Regardless of an individual's offense or defensive position, this presentation will help develop the complete long-pole player. Coaches and players alike need only apply hard work to the instruction shown in order to improve their proficiency and become highly skilled long-pole lacrosse players.

    with Ricky Fried, Georgetown University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach,
    US Women's National Team Head Coach, 2010 Big East Coach of the Year; 6x Big East Champions; 2009 FIL World Cup Champions

    with Lauren Moten, Georgetown University Assistant Coach

    Using whiteboard instruction and live practice footage, Ricky Fried shares the philosophy behind his riding technique and drills for improving it. In addition to lacrosse fundamentals, Coach Fried demonstrates these competitive techniques:

    • passing and speed passing
    • attack and defense split
    • transitional passing
    • riding
    • full-field scrimmage

    The DVD opens with Coach Fried's adjustments to 1-on-1 passing and speed passing techniques. Stick position, footwork and hand position are emphasized. Correct hand and stick position while passing is emphasized. These techniques are reinforced during the speed passing drills.

    Attack players and defenders are broken into their respective groups. Coach Fried starts with the defensive players working on 1v1 fundamentals for footwork and body positioning. He emphasizes fundamentals specific to covering the ball carrier and controlling the attacker in order to dictate where the attacker can move.

    The remainder of the DVD focuses on riding techniques. Coach Fried's philosophy is to make the other team members work as hard as possible to clear the ball; it's not necessarily about causing a turnover.

    Coach Fried's techniques can be tweaked to your team's strengths and needs. There are several ways to maximize the pressure placed on the clearing team. With the drills presented here, you will learn how to set up your ride to force the other team to send the ball where you want it to be sent. You'll also learn how certain aspects of the riding technique can be used when players are working on clearing passes.

    By applying the defensive techniques learned earlier and operating under this specific riding philosophy, your team will be able to better determine where your opponents can move the ball, thus diminishing fast breaks and disrupting offensive plays.

The 2-2-2 allows you to maximize the ability of all your players, breaking them into three separate groups to attack as a unit behind the goal, in the crease and up top.

    In this on-field DVD, Coach Stagnitta shows you his progression for building his 2-2-2 offense. This easy-to-follow progression works the team as three groups before bringing it all together.

    Warm-up Drills
    Learn warm-up drills that will get your entire team involved (including the goalies). These fast paced drills move up and down the field to simulate an unsettled situation. This is an excellent drill that combines a number of line drills with one full-field drill that lets you see the entire field at once.

    In addition, Stagnitta runs his players through a 2-man Shooting Drill. This is a two-part drill that puts players in dodge and shoot situations they will find themselves in in a 2-2-2 offense:

    Part 1) works the behind the net and up top players. The focus is to work together to balance the field and shorten the pass lanes. This teaches the players to follow, throw the ball against pressure, dodge hard and understand spacing.
    Part 2) works with the players inside focusing on timing of cuts, spacing and finishing from the inside (sealing, quick release).

    Building a 2-2-2 Offense
    The warm up drills take Stagnitta into his 5 Drills for Building the 2-2-2 Offense. These drills help build the offensive system of play, but also work your defensive play. The drills are shown live on the field with his team as Coach Stagnitta talks you through the drills and the principles for the offense.

    • DRILL 1 -
    • Live 2-on-2: Step one of breaking down the 2-2-2. This drill takes the shooting drill to the next level - having the the high and low players work together as a unit. Focuses on keeping the offense balanced with proper spacing between the two players, setting and using three types of picks and dodging hard and quick to create a lane or a shot. This allows you to work on two spots - the high and low, as well as defense - on one side of the field.
    • DRILL 2 -
    • Live 4-on-4: (Perimeter Balance): The next step in building the 2-2-2 is putting the top and bottom players together so each group understands what the other is doing when they are attacking. This drill focuses on balancing the perimeter, spacing (opening up) and reading the dodge. Here, you incorporate slides and reads, which forces your offensive units to adjust accordingly. Also, in a 2-2-2 the passing lanes can be long, so this drill helps the offense close those lanes to make easier, safer passes.
    • DRILL 3 -
    • Live 4-on-4 (Inside Crease): Here you start live crease play by adding the two midfielders to the two attackmen. Working on the two attackmen and their three pick options, the two middies focus on sealing their man and popping outside, creating opportunity for the inside (that may open up shots for the attackmen behind). The drill also works on timing, cutting and reading the lanes.
    • DRILL 4 -
    • Survivor Drill: This drill places all four corners and the inside players together to focus on inside play. This drill is great at breaking down inside play and helping the perimeter players find open teammates inside. This also teaches the inside players where to set themselves based on ball movement on the outside. Finally, it forces the inside players to handle the ball in "tough" situations, and trains them to move with a purpose, opening dodging lanes and taking away the defensive slides.
    • DRILL 5 -
    • Live 6-on-6: The final drill pulls all three two-man games together with a live defense, allowing you to rotate your team from offense and defense. This drill also helps develop the push-pull offensive concepts used to balance the field, all in a game-like setting.

    The 2-2-2 Offense is not a scripted offense - a lot of things can happen depending on how the defense reacts or what happens when you first dodge. By incorporating these progressive drills through the two-man games it allows your players to read and practice many different situations so they'll be ready to execute during game time.

    with Kevin Donahue,
    Syracuse University Assistant Lacrosse Coach;
    member of 11 National Championship teams; 2001 Jay Gallagher Award as the nation's top Division I assistant coach.

    Kevin Donahue is one of the most innovative and respected coaches in the game. He has been a part of 11 National Championship teams. In this instructional lacrosse DVD, you will learn essential techniques to develop confident goalies who are prepared to make big saves.

    Goalie Stance
    Using Coach Donahue's stance techniques, your goalies will learn to:

    • Cover as much area as possible and allow for free movement
    • Reduce unnecessary movements before the shot
    • Develop quick hands to the shot
    • Move both hands more quickly without extra movements
    Save Technique
    Using different camera angles, Coach Donahue shows the proper save techniques while providing error detection and correction cues to help goalies develop good habits.
    • Effective hand position and movement
    • Footwork where the hands move first but feet must follow
    • Create a leg-stick-leg wall on low shots
    • Clear start and stop positions to prevent drifting
    Basic Goalie Warm-up
    Using practice footage you'll see how Donahue's goalies warm-up focusing on footwork, hand eye coordination, working the arcs above and below the waist, reinforcing no false steps and reminding shooters to inform the goalies when shots are off net to help reinforce save techniques. He also touches on how to select the correct players to warm-up goalies, as the wrong shooters can actually hurt a goalie's development.

    Additional suggestions are provided for Alley Dodge Shooting Drills using a rope to teach shot boundaries and the how to use video to show your goalies their techniques.

    Coach Donahue's tutelage helped turn Syracuse Goalie John Galloway into one of the premier goaltenders in college lacrosse history. Now Donohue shares his knowledge and championship experience with you, so you can create successful goalies for your program.

  • 05/26/15--22:00: The Backer Zone Defense
  • with Scott Tucker,
    Limestone College Head Women's Lacrosse Coach;
    IWLCA South Region Coach of the Year; Synapse Sports National Coach of the Year; Conference Carolinas Coach of the Year

    Whether you run a man to man or zone The Backer Zone Defense will be a valuable addition to your defensive arsenal.

    In this detailed lacrosse DVD, Scott Tucker goes into great detail in explaining the principles of his highly successful Backer Zone defense. Using whiteboard and on field demonstrations he explains how this high pressure defense can help your team in both man up and man down situations.

    This high pressure defense stops the dodging or isolation offense so popular today. It allows your players to take risks knowing they have the security of a backer in place. This enables your team to force the offense out of its comfort zone and to change their game plan to deal with your defense instead of vice versa.

    Coach Tucker starts by describing the rationale behind this defense and discusses the type of players you should look for to implement the Backer Zone to its full potential. In his whiteboard presentation, Tucker's attention to detail is evident. He goes into each player's responsibilities as on-ball defenders and the proper positioning of off-ball defenders. He also discusses how to deal with offensive players in different positions on the field.

    Moving to the field, Tucker continues to illustrate key points in the Backer Zone. This will allow you to see how the defense is actually run during live exercises. He points out where players should be depending on the ball movement of the offense.

    This defense will be a great addition to any team's arsenal and is a must for any coach looking to gain an advantage on the defensive side of the field.
