Who Needs To Learn These Plays?
Generally speaking, if your team is in high school or above, then they should know at least two lacrosse plays.
I wouldn�t bother trying to teach middle school players�They tend to lose focus easily. However, if you have already taught your middle school lacrosse team a play, then GREAT JOB! You are one-in-a-million.
It is much easier trying to teach high school players rather than middle school players. They retain a lot more information. Teaching them can still be a hassle. The easiest way to do it is to show them on a white board first, and then go out and walk them through the process.
College teams should have between 3-5 plays: two man-up plays, and two or three 6v6 plays.
There are a million different lacrosse plays that can be done, but only a handful are actually effective.
Types of Plays
The first thing to know is that there are different plays for different formations.
The formations are: 2-3-1, 2-2-2, 3-3, 1-4-1.
I will be sticking with these �bread and butter� lacrosse formations because they are used the most.
These are generally the easiest to work with, and are usually the formations that players learn first.
When you first introduce a new lacrosse play to your team, you should devote at least two whole practices to it.
Do not spend the whole time just practicing it with your starting lines. Make sure you get all of your lines practicing it.
To help a little more with the understanding of the play, take turns letting one of the players teach it while you watch and correct what he is saying.
This is a great way to help the players remember. You may not know it, but the players may be getting a little sick of your voice.
When you practice the play and something goes wrong: Stop, Ask a player what went wrong, and then ask another player how to fix it. This is a great way for the team to better learn the play.
Remember: Learning new lax plays can be VERY BORING. Get the team involved in the play, and let them actively learn it.
