Jim Berkman, the all-time winningest coach in NCAA men's lacrosse history, shows you how to fine-tune your shooting, stickwork and face-off skills, to improve your offensive output. He details how to set-up each drill so that you can get hundreds of reps in a short amount of time to maximize your practice period.
Coach Berkman divides this instructional lacrosse DVD into three parts: Shooting, face-offs and offensive plays. Each section is loaded with tips and strategies to improve your team's offensive skills.
The shooting section features over 40 drills to improve your shooting mechanics. These drills work on finishing inside; shooting in a tight situation; hands, head and stick fakes; shooting on the run and more. Berkman also includes a wall drills series that can be done individually to sharpen your players' stickwork and "make the stick an extension of their arm."
In the face-off section, Berkman delivers drills to win the whistle every time. These reaction drills will strengthen your players' center of gravity, coordination, and force them to keep their head down and eyes on the ball - all of which will allow them to get a good scoop for possession. A wing player series is included to help strengthen box out skills.
In addition, Coach Berkman opens his playbook and shares 14 plays (including the play used to win the 2003 National Championship in overtime) that you can incorporate into your offense. Plays include quick hitters, isos, two-man pick game, pick the picker and more.
Improve your offensive performance this year with these championship drills and plays.

Berkman videos are excellent. Packed full of great information, decent production value, and there is not sense of 'stalling' or stretching the content out. Very impressed, and recommended.
I thought the video was well done. All of the shooting drills are great and mimic game like situations. Very fast paced drills and the players get alot of touches. Be prepared to get a notebook to write down the drills. The wall ball and faceoff section had a lot of new ideas that I will be using for sure.
Some of the shooting drills are the same as the ones Salisbury has posted on the net, but there is alot of other good stuff in here. The shooting progression is really nice to see, and the quick hitters save you some time and thought.
I love the drills and the progressions.The individual shooting progression is great and I love the extras with faceoffs and offense. I would love to have a playbook/companion to the dvd so that you can bring it to practice and explain it to the other coaches. We have started the wall practice with a handout explaining the 10 different activities... the going is tough for 5th graders but perfect practice makes perfect.
Thanks for the fantastic resource!
