OK I admit I am extremely biased. Coach Berkman is a friend, a mentor, and has been an incredible positive influence on any success I have had as a lacrosse coach. In the recent podcast he shared four new drills he had designed for this year, this team, and as you might expect they were awesome. There is a good reason why he has 530 plus wins, 30 Consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, and 12 national DIII Championships.

Before the podcast he shared his practice plan w me and I laughed as I saw 4 min drills that I could only imagine were electric to watch.

In this case he has taken it to a new level. He rarely runs any drills two days in a row keeping in interesting for the players. He uses shooting drills for touches, (sound like my site so far?) but he is perhaps best at integrating game scenarios into even basic fundamental lacrosse drills.

So here I want to share two of those that are really extensions of the same concepts. The first is a 3V2 that begins with a 1V1… So I can hear you saying “we already do that… nothing new here” but read on….

So we begin with four lines of offensive players, and four lines of defensive players set up in a “Diamond” around the Box. There is a line at each GLE wing, a line up top, and a line behind. Although we have four lines of each, only three lines of offensive players and two lines of defensive players are in the drill at a time, they change w each rep, and it is fast so players have to be engaged.
