Save practice time with drills that combine the conditioning and skill development required to win games.
Gene Peluso demonstrates an up tempo practice style to teach and condition at the same time. He opens his drill book sharing more than 20 drills he runs on a regular basis to develop better defensive and offensive players. These are drills provide maximum player touches in a 10-15 minute time frame.
Peluso explains his unique approach by dividing each practice into four quarters with each quarter designed to teach a game specific skill. The quarters are broken down into Shooting and Defense, Transition, Points of Emphasis, and Drills with a Twist. Each covers both offensive and defensive skills. Proper shooting and passing are emphasized with four and six station shooting drills that mimic game situations. He also demonstrates drills that teach proper pick and slip technique, ball exchanges, defensive stick handling in pressure scenarios and reinforcement of proper defensive positioning fundamentals.
Transition and unsettled situations are highlighted with drills that will keep your players engaged and learning in both half- and full-field settings. He demonstrates drills that teach proper rides and clears after a shot to transition defensive recovery. Most of these drills will require your defensive players to play some offense and your offensive players to play defense.
All drills are discussed in detail in a classroom with PowerPoint to explain why the drill is effective and then presented on field in a practice situation to give the drill more impact.
This DVD will help any coach develop a dynamic practice environment that is both fun and challenging with lacrosse drills that give maximum individual touches in game like situations.
