Improve Your Players’ Communication Skills!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Winning championships is impossible if your team doesn’t possess communication skills. Joe Amplo, Marquette University head coach and U.S. Men’s Lacrosse National Team assistant coach, helps discourage poor communication by putting his players through the “I-Talk” drill.


Drill Summary: Begin the drill with a full offense and full defense. Designate one player on defense as the “talker.” Only the talker is allowed to communicate, and the rest of the defenders must remain silent. Allow the offense to move the ball around and try to score while the talker communicates as much to their teammates as possible. Make sure different players get a chance at being the talker so everyone can improve their communication.
