Coach Harkins polled local high school lacrosse coaches and asked what they wanted to see in an instructional lacrosse DVD. He combined those responses into one comprehensive DVD covering drills, principles and real coaching suggestions that will help take your team to a new level.
Through marker board explanation and on-field demonstration, Harkins leads you through 17 drills that prepare your players for game situations. He teaches his warm-up drills, passing drills, transition drills and face-off drills. Executing these drills at top speed adds a conditioning element to your practice and builds endurance in your team.
Harkins reveals strategic principles, including how to look for a strong short stick defender, one of the most important but most overlooked positions in lacrosse. He explains the qualities needed to be an effective short stick defender, as well as important techniques like proper footwork, stance and positioning.
To assist with your practice planning, Harkins explains how he organizes his practices leading you through a sample workout.
All of the strategies and drills in this DVD work together to help ready your players for game day.

I found this to be a very solid video explaining a series of warm-up drills (ground balls, passing, clears, etc.)for practice and games.
Coach Hawkins does a good job of explaining on the field and demonstrating the drills in a clear manner so the viewer can follow the drills.
The video could have done with out the whiteboard sessions and the Coach gets lost toward the end when he gets away from the drills on individual defense and spends too much time talking about creating a short stick defender.
However, for any coach looking for a good 15-20 minute warm-up routine to start practice or pre-game this video does a good job of showing you what FSU uses.
