In this week’s edition of All-Access, we take you to Annapolis, Maryland for a behind-the-scenes look at the United States Naval Academy women’s lacrosse team. Watch as head coach Cindy Timchal provides exclusive looker room access as her team makes final preparations before a home game.
The all-access pass lets you be part of Navy’s pre-game preparations, from detailed whiteboard discussion in the locker room to on-field warm-ups before the opening face-off. Also, look for ways you can incorporate some of these elements with your own team to get them prepared on game day and create a winning environment.
Locker Room Discussion
In Navy’s locker room discussion, Timchal provides her team with some last-minute instructions before they take the field. The longtime head coach lays out all of the important details of the looming contest on the whiteboard and discusses some key game strategies and overall game tactics. Plus, the conversation also includes key players to watch for, particular match-up assignments and opponent tendencies.
Game Day Warm-Ups
Next, our all-access look takes you on the field for game day warm-ups. From plyometrics to 1-on-1’s, watch as Navy goes through its typical routine before the whistle. Timchal also serves as your guide as her squad moves through unsettled drills, 3-on-2’s and drills up top and behind the cage.
After stick checks and player introductions, it’s game-time, but not before a final team huddle and some last-second words of advice.
