Coach of the NLL Champions (2006);
member of the United States Lacrosse National Hall of Fame (2005)
and the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame

Lacrosse legend Gary Gait calls on his vast experience to provide you expert coaching instruction for Boys U11 lacrosse. Coach Gait is a big believer in line drills because players are on the move while executing these drills. He teaches his players to to keep the stick up and provide a target while catching on the run. Another basic skill is ground balls. A low, athletic stance is needed while players scoop up the ball on the run. Dodging is a skill taught by Gait, and is executed as a fake defense after passing. Other offensive concepts presented are popping the receiving, give and go and setting a pick. Competitive drills include ground ball drills, ground ball passes, dodging with defenders and live one-on-one. On the defensive side, Gait covers the proper stance, changing direction with use of a drop step and narrowing the channel, which is a defensive tactic to shrink the offensive player's channel to the net. This is a complete set of teaching points and drills for coaching lacrosse with boys under 11!

In this detailed presentation, Gary Gait, arguably the greatest lacrosse player of all time, covers the critical lacrosse fundamentals and foundations for girls lacrosse players, beginning with basic stick skills. Gait demonstrates the proper technique for cradling the stick, catching the ball and throwing the ball. An excellent gauge for improvement is a player's ability to control the ball. This can be done by developing a cradle with the ball in the pocket. Young players can also improve by learning to attack a ground ball and scoop it off the ground. Shuttle drills add movement to skills. He includes single player and partner drills. His shuttle drills also develop good dodging skills. The finer skills of playing defense are also taught and demonstrated. Shooting and offensive skills are necessary when developing the complete lacrosse player.

Gary Gait: Coaching Girls Lacrosse - Intermediate Stick Skills & Dodging

with Gary Gait,
Syracuse University Women's Head Coach,
Coach of the NLL Champions (2006);
member of the United States Lacrosse National Hall of Fame (2005)
and the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame

Gary Gait picks up where Coaching Girls Lacrosse - Basic Skills & Drills left off, exploring the next level of skills coaches can teach their players. Effective passing starts with stick protection, which involves positioning yourself between the stick and the defender. Cradle the ball to protect it whether preparing to pass or shoot. Passing skills include throwing across the body, away from the body and straight toward your target. Side-arm technique is also covered. Once passing to different directions is mastered, players can move on to faking one direction and passing another. Practice passing at a greater distance to add power and speed to your skills. Once players have learned how to control the stick with two hands, they can start to develop the ability to use just one hand. Finally, the players can use their newly developed skills against a defender in live situations. Coach Gait also shows trick passes, catches and shots that can be used to throw off defenders. Gait finishes by showing how to incorporate advanced dodging skills in your game.
