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.

As a former defender and current U15 and high school level coach, I found this DVD to be very helpful since it filled in some of the gaps I had when teaching details of offense to my players. Coach Cottle gives coaches the tools they need to tailor these offensive sets to different levels and abilities. He offers coaching insights into particular aspects of the game in addition to laying out the offenses themselves. I find this particularly useful and will point these same things out to my players.
I liked the overhead view of the actual on-field rotations -- this makes it very easy to see how to implement. I think Coach Cottle was very clear in his explanation and I will be able to enforce the roles-model that he uses with my kids.
Coach Cottle outline the theory of the 1-4-1 Offence. He highlights strength and weaknesses and details the key concepts necessary to follow in order to successfully implement the 1-4-1 offence. Using white board and on field demonstrations, coach Cottle illustrates attack strategies from the 1-4-1 formation. Additionally, tactics are discussed on how to make minor adjustments into other offensive formations in an effort to expose variations in your opponents defense to capitalize and increase scoring opportunities.
Coach Cottles explanations are in depth and well detailed but can easily be applied to the youngest enthusiastic players.
