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.



__________________________________

Collect RSVPs

As a coach of younger players, knowing what practice attendance will look like is critical to developing a good practice plan. Using the team schedule allows players to RSVP to practice and games ahead of time. This will better allow coaches to adjust middie lines or set proper practice plans and for players to coordinate carpooling.

Assign Homework for Practice

Our goal has always been to help coaches take the monotonous out of practice. As part of your team schedule, you can also assign homework assignments for the players to study before they come to practice. For example, if the practice objective includes reviewing transition, be sure to assign your ride/clearing plays as homework so that your players can review before they come to practice.

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! -Eric
