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.

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.
