Forum Friday

Welcome to Forum Friday! Everyday there are great conversations taking place in the LAS CommunityIf you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you do! And while you’re at it, you might as well watch this silly video update we created too. We hope it provides you with an easy way to connect with other lacrosse fans all over the world.

Have you ever coached a youth team? It sometimes can be challenging, and usually challenges coaches in different ways than an older team would. So what is the best way to coach youth players and teams?

[coaching u11] … This is a hard age group to coach because they have shorter attention spans than u15 or even u13 I need more drills to run to keep them interested

Know of any great drills to use with youth lacrosse teams? Help our poster out by commenting on the original post!
