JB Clarke does an excellent job of identifying the potential of implementing a fast paced, transition oriented lacrosse strategy. In this DVD he lays out the optimal way to teach this type of game through a combination of discussion, illustrations and live action practice footage.

Coach Clarke breaks his presentation down into two parts:

Part I: Coaching Your Team to Take Advantage of Unsettled Situations
In part I, Coach Clarke discusses his experiences as a college lacrosse coach and how the importance of the unsettled game became apparent to him. Clarke shares his coaching philosophy, which is the foundation of teaching a team to take advantage of unsettled situations in a lacrosse game. He shows how to "attack the pressure" through different strategies and move from ground ball to goal. Concepts such as Ground-Ball-to-Goal, C.H.A.O.S. (Constantly Harass and Create Opportunities to Score), and Attack the Pressure are explained and then demonstrated in live action drills.

Part II: Practice Structure and Drills for Mastering Unsettled Lacrosse
In Part II Coach Clarke introduces his eight favorite drills:

  • Flying Rats - A fast paced 3v2 drill with a goalie that forces uneven number situations and turns them into scoring opportunities.
  • Toomey - A great drill where defensemen play offense, play defense and are forced to clear and ride. It emphasizes that defensemen and goalies are the key to an upbeat, fast paced offense.
  • 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 Lines - Arguably the best drill for teaching the unsettled game. This drill has endless configurations and can be setup to stress every facet of an unsettled offense and defense. Coach Clarke introduces some of his favorite variations and offers valuable coaching tips on how to get the most out of your team.
  • The Cornell Drill - A half field scrimmage drill that is designed to keep both the offense and defense off kilter. This drill takes the basic 4v4 drill and expands it by introducing concepts that force players to adapt to constantly changing game situations.
  • Broken - A dynamic 6v5 drill where the ball is introduced from a variety of locations. The offense is forced to constantly adapt to a changing offensive flow, while the defense learns the importance of playing from the hole, out.
  • NAZ - A full field drill that combines a fast paced transitional offense, with uneven man, or fast break situations. This allows you the ability to teach the game while conditioning your athletes.
  • 2v1 Dynamic Ground Balls - This drill was designed to emphasize the Ground-Ball-to-Goal concept. Coach Clark has transformed the traditional man-ball drill into a fast break offense drill where middies learn the importance of immediately attacking the goal from a ground ball situation.

Each of the drills is diagrammed on a white board prior to being performed by the players on the field. All the drills imitate game situations and are designed to be run fast. They also reinforce correct stick work and communications between players. Coach Clarke believes that the players need to compete in everything they do. By making sure all the drills mean something, athletes are motivated to improve.

This is an excellent video for coaches who are looking to teach a high speed, dynamic lacrosse style.

Limestone College Head Men's Lacrosse Coach;
Back-to-Back NCAA D-II National Champions ('14-'15); 2016 NSILA D-II Coach of the Year;

JB Clarke provides an in-depth look at how he teaches this unpredictable, yet simple offense.

Coach Clarke walks you through the background of the motion offense using PowerPoint slides, white board and live practice video. Clarke does a thorough job of sharing many coaching points and introduces several drills that are actual components of his motion offense.

Clarke covers offensive basics, how to teach motion offense, and motion offense rules. Using white board and practice video, Clarke uses breakdown drills to teach the offense. These include:

  • A variation of 1-on-1 using a defender and crease player to create slide recognition rules
  • 2-on-2 with additional crease players to emphasize playing without the ball rules
  • Pick and pop situations
  • 3-on-3 with crease players to force motion
  • 4-on-4 half field settled drills
  • Dice drill and multiple shooting drills using elements of the motion offense

Throughout this video Coach Clarke provides extensive tips to supplement the key elements of building a motion offense. This video is a must have for any coach looking to create movement and scoring opportunities for their offense and put stress on the defense.

The motion offense DVD illustrated the basics of how to run a motion offense. Coach Clark does a great job of explaining the rules and breaking down its motion through some core drills and small situations.

I would have liked to see a couple wrinkles that he would use depending on how the defense is playing the offense. He only illustrated one wrinkle where the midfielder joins the attack triangle.

The unsettled drills DVD had some usable content that is applicable to high school and youth programs. However, it would have been nice to see him talk about when he uses these drills within the scope of a daily, weekly practice schedule.

Some of the drills would be tough with kids that are developing their stick skills and/or low numbers.

Overall, I would recommend this DVD combo pack.

Wow, I would like to go to J.B. Clarke school for a week. Great presentation and insight into the motion offense, provides drills to reinforce each part of his motion offense. Uses, PowerPoint, whiteboard and then actual practice footage to explain and demonstrate the skills and techniques.

The Unsettled Drills is a fast paced demonstration of how to really get your players to think quickly on their feet as drills move quick.

Can't argue with the man's plan as he made the 2012 DII Championship game.
