Description

How to Create a Strong Team Defense

with Lars Tiffany,
Brown University Head Men's Lacrosse Coach

Coach Tiffany has a great understanding of what it takes to be great on defense - he was a 2-time team captain and starter on defense for three years under Dom Starsia (now niversity of Virginia head coach) at Brown. Good communication between the six defensemen and the goalie are required to create strong team defense. The goalie's only goal is to watch the ball and communicate to the on ball defender. The off ball defenders determine the slides. The 'hot player' designates himself as 'hot' and asks his teammates to fill and second slide. Other verbal calls dictate the slide patterns: crease/crease, crease/adjacent, adjacent/adjacent, and cross crease. Slide scheme development starts with the 1 v 1 decision-making drill and progresses to a full catalog of drills that include 2 v 1, 2 v 2 with an outlet, etc. On the field, Tiffany begins with on ball play. Decision-making is the key part of team scheme development. The first slide, second slide, third slide and recovery are all demonstrated in drills on the field. The DVD finishes with game clips of 6 v 6 defense, demonstrating a variety of slide packages.

Man Down Defense: A Catalog of Drills

with Lars Tiffany,
Brown University Head Men's Lacrosse Coach

Coach Tiffany presents a step-by-step development of the fundamentals of man down defense. He begins with a discussion on personnel. A decision must be made between the best defenders and a specialty unit. Players must be intelligent and have a good stick. Man down defense relies on anticipation of skip lanes and the ability to knock down passes and shots. Tiffany has created a catalog of drills that can help identify and improve the personnel for man down defense. The 2 v 1 knock down drill works on the drop step technique and the 4 v 2 drill puts two defenders in an urgent situation and requires communication and changing positions. The 5 v 3 drill addresses the skip lanes. A series of drills get progressively more challenging for advanced players. A drill to develop offense and man down defensive technique is the 3v2/4v3/5v4 drill. A section on terminology is important to define all-important verbal calls in lacrosse. Man down schemes used against the 3-3 offense include the center string, the diamond, 4v3 up top and 3v2 up top. Defending the 1-3-2 offensive, Tiffany diagrams on the white board using both 5 man and 4 man schemes. He then takes to the field to demonstrate many of the drills and schemes. Game clips of the man down defense show the system in action.

105minutes. 2008.

This is a tremendous set of DVDs. Coach Tiffany does a great job explaining, diagramming, and demonstrating. These DVDs at nearly 90 minutes each are one of the best values around. This set should be one of the first additions to a coaching library.

Coach Tiffany has produced a nice little set of DVD's, each one filled with thorough explanations of team defense and man-down defensive concepts. The on-field drills that follow the chalk-talks help the viewer to understand the purpose, structure, and coaching points of each drill. I believe the true value of these DVD's is that you start to realize the "big picture" that Coach Tiffany is trying to present. Being a head coach of a 1st year program, I found these DVD's to be an exceptional resource to draw from and to educate myself and the other coaches.

These two videos are two of the best I have purchased from Championship Productions. Extremely detailed, easy to follow, and easy to employ any or all of what Coach Tiffany demonstrates. The key is how well his players do what he demonstrates on the white board and even more important, his explanations of when/why he employs certain defenses/strategies.
