Once predominantly thought of as an American sport, lacrosse is now spreading throughout the world, with many taking up the challenge of learning the fastest game on two feet. "Winning Women's Lacrosse" is the only comprehensive guide to this fast growing sport, authored by one of the game's most skilled and decorated coaches.
Kelly Amonte-Hiller shares the skill instruction and team execution that has helped her to win multiple NCAA National Championships and the respect of her peers.
Through her teachings, readers will learn: individual offensive and defensive skills and techniques; team execution for offense and defense; specialty skills for field players and goalkeepers; drills for conditioning and game-like situations; and, how to maximise the quality of practice time.
The text also provides basic-level team execution strategies for many of the more common ingame situations, along with ready-to-use practice plans for coaches of women's lacrosse teams. Amonte-Hiller's considerable knowledge and technical know-how, combined with the first-hand experience of two of her former players - Ashley Gersuk and Anne Elliott - makes for a well rounded read that focuses on skill development and player refinement.
These drills and instructions are suitable for use in developing players from the junior level through to college competition.
