“Anytime I’ve ever watched a video, there is always something I can take from that video. Whether it’s a different way of explaining things, a different term that’s used or a different philosophy that we haven’t even considered. We’ve been able to take the philosophies from other sports and incorporate them into lacrosse.”
This is a great quote from a 2x NCAA championship coach. He is still a student of the game – looking for ways to improve his coaching and players. I would tend to think this is common denominator with all successful coaches and athletes!
We have recently released three new lacrosse DVDs featuring Dave Pietramala and Bobby Benson (Head Coach and Assistant Coach of the Men’s Lacrosse Program at Johns Hopkins University). The three new DVDs are titled:
