with Dennis Short, Rollins College Head Women's Lacrosse Coach; Took Rollins from startup program to Division II Final Four in just five years
Dennis Short packs more lacrosse into a one-hour practice than some teams
manage all week. In this live - and intense - Rollins College practice, every
player gets a "built-in" conditioning workout while she gets hundreds of touches
on the ball.
Coach Short demonstrates several fast paced drills that will change the way you practice. In this DVD you will see:
• Progressive Multi-Partner Stick Drills
• Guaranteed Game Speed 1 v 1
• Aggressive Defensive Techniques
• Effective Doubling Strategies
• Fast Offensive Ball Movement
This DVD features a practice plan worth of small-sided drills you can use to multiply your players' game-speed reps. In addition to seeing the nationally-ranked Rollins College team execute these drills in a real-time, live practice, Coach Short whiteboards each drill and explains its purpose and key coaching points.Nine drills are presented that can be tailored to accommodate different levels of experience. For example, through the application of a basic four corner box drill, Short has elevated the ordinary Line and Shuttle Drills to be so much more. His drills go far beyond building simple stick skills.
The "Three on One" and "Three Around One" drills will help players develop field awareness, footwork and communication, reinforce "give and go" passing and quick decision making, and build player proficiency in stick passing and catching. Coaches can apply the framework of these two drills to more efficiently exercise the skills you currently practice in line and shuttle drills.
Through well structured drills Coach Short easily creates a competitive atmosphere. Players push themselves at game speed in an effort to best their opponents. Fast and strategic ball movement is pitted against aggressive defensive techniques that call on defenders to double the ball in certain situations and use the goalie as an added defender in a manner that creates a surprising number of turnovers.
The entire practice series is suitable for players of any age, experience level, or scheme, and can be easily incorporated into your existing practice plan. Coach Short's philosophy of fast-paced drills and coaching "on the fly" creates high-tempo, competitive practices. Your players will never know what hit them when you implement these intense practice drills - and neither will your competition! 78 minutes. 2013. DVD.
