New Release: Roster Management Overhaul



We're starting 2020 off with a bang and pushing a pretty big release! We hope to simplify your communication with your team and have enhanced our roster capabilities. In our new release, you can now:

1. Assign multiple contacts to a single player. Now, when parents login on behalf of their children, multiple accounts can be associated with a single roster slot. This will keep your roster and depth chart cleaner!

2. Send Invitation Reminders. In addition to tracking which players or parents have registered for Lacrosse Lab, you can now simply send reminder emails to any contacts stored in your roster. Just select INVITE PLAYERS on the roster screen to start the invitation process.



3. Use Roster as a contact list. With all of your player and parents' contacts stored in the Roster list, you can trigger emails directly from Lacrosse Lab. When you want to send an email to your whole roster, select EMAIL TEAM. If you only want to email the contacts associated with a single player, select the email button associated with the intended player. Lacrosse Lab will open your device's native email application and prefill the distribution list.

We hope this release makes life much easier for all of our coaches when managing your roster. We believe that this release will be foundational to a few other features that we hope to roll out in the near future.

Have a Happy New Year!
-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.
