5V4 GB Transition into fun!!
Coach Eric Wolf, LIU

OK, I now have a man crush on this great young coach. His practices are fast with five-minute drills and at the same time focus on fundamentals. This lacrosse drill is pretty straightforward, but an absolute blast to run. He gives credit to Coach DeLuca (Cornell, Duke, now Delaware.)

The drill has five offensive players and four defensive players at one end, with a goalie in the cage.

At the other end, the cage is moved forward to the opposite side Box, with the cage and a goalie at the opposite Restraining Line.

    This has been a staple for us since I saw Cornell run it in 2006 (Coach DeLuca must have been there) very early on a crazy-warm day for Ithaca for early March. We added the rule, if the D wins the initial gb scramble, the ball has to go below the GLE. It generates the live clearing actions we want to practice.

    Has anyone allowed their goalie to run out of the offensive end for a 5v5? As more teams perform a 10 man ride I feel this would benefit the goalie and riding offensive players.
