Features & Benefits
  • Increase your athletes' speed through proper form and technique
  • Use lacrosse-specific drills in game-like conditions to improve athletic performance
  • Develop explosive movement while reducing injuries
with Eric Markovcy, Lehigh University Head Strength & Conditioning Coach

Eric Markovcy shares an effective way to train your athletes to become better lacrosse players. Coach Markovcy presents a series of scalable drills designed to increase core strength and flexibility while simultaneously training players to perform all of their movements from a disciplined athletic position. The proven benefit of core fitness training is fewer injuries, while the discipline of correct footwork will develop explosive movement.

Using training exercises specifically designed for lacrosse athletes, this presentation shows you how to efficiently train your athletes to become faster and stronger by using progressively challenging concepts like:

  • technique driven drills designed to minimize the risk of injury
  • dynamic stretches that begin the progression of correct footwork
  • stretching techniques to condition and build core muscles
  • ladder drills that emphasize lacrosse specific skills
  • drill progressions to challenge players' reaction time

Coach Markovcy begins his presentation with dynamic, detailed warm-ups . The intent of these drills is to begin a process of ingraining specific movements and concepts into player training. These methods become the foundational tools that players use throughout their training. This method of dynamic stretching will help improve performance and reduce injury.

Coach Markovcy uses a "calculated progression" in his ladder drill concept. The In/In/Out/Out concept, which prevents wasted movements by forcing the feet to stay under the body, is the key to success in all of his techniques. He then introduces lacrosse-specific drills with the In/In/Out/Out ladder drill concept. Once athletes are familiar with this concept, training can progress onto the field. Using lacrosse-specific drills, Coach Markovcy demonstrates ways to successfully heighten reaction time and improve quickness on the field.

Throughout this presentation, Coach Markovcy supplements the key elements of speed building for lacrosse with tips and suggestions. He finishes with two injury prevention drills to help athletes stay on the field.

This is a must-have DVD for any coach who wants to maximize their players' athleticism and for any athlete wanting to improve their speed and explosion.

5/5 Stars

by MichaelCross726

While I've done a lot of reading on the subject, I'm not an expert in speed, agility, and quickness training (which is why I got this video in the first place). However, I think this video is very good.

The quality of the video and audio is very good. I didn't have any trouble hearing or seeing anything. I also had no problem seeing the drills being performed.

The video starts with some dynamic warm-up drills, and then goes into a bunch of drills specifically for lacrosse, including agility ladder, cones, partner resistance, and other types of equipment. There are plenty of drills presented so there should be no problem mixing things up and providing enough variety to keep the training interesting for an entire season.

Some of the drills might not be appropriate for youth players, so be sure to consider your audience when implementing these drills.

Given how the game is changing so quickly, I think that spending some time in each practice (and in the off-season) on these types of drills can be very beneficial, as long as they are done correctly, safely, and in appropriate progressions.

If you have no experience with these types of drills, this video is a great starting point.
