New Release: Box Lacrosse Play Design

As our user base grows, we're excited to be receiving such thoughtful feedback on the main page application, LacrosseLab.com. We want you, our customers, to really drive where we take Lacrosse Lab. We've quietly pushed out a few releases over the last couple of weeks to help improve the ease of your interaction with our lacrosse play designer.

Here's an update on a few of the things you may have missed:

Box Lacrosse

We have a really engaged group of users up in Canada that enjoys our play designer but has been waiting for Box Lacrosse to become available. Ryan really worked hard to include this in our most recent release, but you will now find Box Lacrosse available in the Create Play introduction screen. Thank you for the kind words from our fans up in Canada!



Playbook Views

As a coach, you will now be able to see where your players are engaged. See which plays are being studied and by whom. As a coach, I've loved how much engagement I am seeing from my players and their parents. It always helps to see parents reinforcing the coaching points that we are teaching in practice. Let us help you create an enriching and educational lacrosse playbook experience and save the time that you spend teaching new plays in practice!



Custom Team Branding

We want your team to feel right at home while they're using Lacrosse Lab. You may have noticed in the playbook list up above that there is a custom logo now presented in the background. You can now add your team's logo in the Manage Teams list when you create your new team. 



Simpler Invitation Access

Finally, we want to make the process as easy as possible for you to onboard your players. You will now see links through Lacrosse Lab to share invitation information with your players. Within your team's action drop-down, you will now see a link to ADD MEMBERS. This will present the player and coach tokens that will be needed when they register their accounts.


As I mentioned earlier, Ryan and I have been really motivated by all of the positive and constructive feedback that we have received. Our lacrosse play designer is getting better every day and it's exciting to see that you guys feel the same way. We'll continue to push releases and share updates as they become available. For now, try out our new features at LacrosseLab.com and tell us what you think!

Thanks,
Eric

New Release: Team Schedules

Over the last year, we've built out the most complete lacrosse play designer available on the internet. We've helped teams across the country roll out their new plays so that their players can come to practice to apply their skills and knowledge immediately, rather than standing around and dry-running new plays. We've accomplished this while putting a lot of the team management and administration directly on the coach.

Now, we want to help you deliver your lacrosse play curriculum through your team's Schedule. Here's what you can expect from this new feature:

Create and Manage Game & Practice Events
The Schedule allows coaches and team administrators the ability to upload their game and practice schedules. In addition to the date, time and location of their lacrosse games and practices, coaches can also call out key objectives for that particular event.

Share Public Plays with Free Accounts

Want to see a trick?



We're excited to announce that plays can now be shared and even embedded (like above) with your free Lacrosse Lab account. Sharing can be done by selecting the play options drop-down in "My Playbook." Select SHARE PLAY and navigate to the PUBLIC tab.




For now, you can share directly to Facebook and Twitter. You can also copy a direct link to share anywhere that you please!

For those of you that might be a little more "techy," you can also embed our play viewer on your site, just like I've shown above.

As always, let us know what you think and start SHARING!

Offense: Two-Man Game

The Two-Man game is been gaining popularity in lacrosse in the last two decades. It benefits through its simplicity and its success. Watch any college lacrosse game, and you'll likely see two offenses frequently running the Two-Man game.

There are three guidelines to keep in mind while implementing a Two-Man game offense:
Create space in the dodge setup.Make the appropriate read in the Two-Man game.Maintain good backside spacing and off-ball movement. Setting Up the Two-Man The offense can set up through any formation that you can create pairs. You're most likely to see the Two-Man created out of 1-4-1, Deuces (2-2-2) and as has become very popular recently, the 3-1-2. We are more used to seeing this offense run through an invert (bring middies behind), but it can really be initiated from anywhere on the field. 
In the Two-Man game, you will have, as you can probably guess, two players isolated. One will be our primary ball carrier and the other will be the picker.
