In the game of lacrosse, every possession counts. If your team can grab 4-5 extra possessions per game, it can be the difference between winning and losing.
Kevin Donahue, one of the Orangemen's all-time great players and coaches, presents an exhaustive three part reference for coaches at every level - as well as developing lacrosse players.
THE IMPORTANCE OF FACEOFFS AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GREAT FACEOFF MANQuick hands, a quick mind, physical strength and an insatiable desire to win make for a lethal combination at the faceoff X. Coach Donahue provides a detailed explanation of the importance of faceoffs and what he looks for in an ideal faceoff man.
CLAMPS AND COUNTERSLearn the basic concepts of hand and foot positioning. Hand and foot placement is not universal for every face off. As Donahue explains, there are subtle differences to better support each particular move. In a series of live, on-field demonstrations, Donahue walks you through all the primary moves in today's game:
Building on these initial moves, Donahue quickly develops a wide range of techniques suitable for any player's skill level. To defend against these moves, counters are shown includings Chops, Handle Jams and Sweeps.
He unlocks the tactical contest of the faceoff, explaining in minute detail the technique required for each move, the proper hand and foot placement to support it, the advantages and drawbacks to different moves, and the most frequent errors to watch out for. Plus, how each move shifts into "Phase Two" when neither player has cleanly won the draw.
TEAM DRILLSDiscover drills for training faceoff men in a live practice session. Donahue uses a progressive method for drilling faceoffs: From individual drills to 1v1 to 3v3 (adding wing players).
These are the drills the Syracuse faceoff unit repeats daily to hone quickness and muscle memory for flawless execution. Competitive drills thrust players into game-like faceoff scenarios that continue to stress excellent technique, like sealing out to secure a ground ball and countering a strong clamper.
This densely-packed 70-minute DVD packs everything you need to mold a dominant faceoff man--even if you've never taken a draw yourself. With face-off play being such a vital part of the modern game this DVD could be the catalyst to take your program to the next level.
70 minutes. 2012.
