with Ricky Fried,
Georgetown University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach;
winningest coach in program history; US Women's National Team Head Coach, 2009-2017;
Coached the US Women's National Team to 3 Gold medals

  • in 2013, at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario;
  • in 2017, at the FIL World Cup in Guildford, England;
  • in 2017, at the X World Games in Wroclaw, Poland;
2009 FIL World Cup Gold medal as Assistant Coach in Prague, Czech Republic;
2010 Big East Coach of the Year;
7x Big East Champions;
Philadelphia Fire Head Coach (WPLL)

Utilizing whiteboard instruction and on-field practices, Georgetown University's Ricky Fried shares his offensive philosophy on how to run a motion offense from top to bottom.

You'll get Coach Fried's advice on a number of topics relating to offense, including:

  • Running a pattern as opposed to a set play
  • Read and react framework
  • Understanding your options in the framework you're using
  • Staying focused for the entire possession
  • Spacing, timing and awareness on the field
  • Shuffling and filling vs. running and cutting

All of these add up to one jam-packed instructional video!

Whiteboard Breakdown

Coach Fried begins with an extensive whiteboard session in which he reviews the concepts and strategies on the set he calls "New York." During this segment, he covers all aspects of how players should keep the ball moving and finding space and time to be a threat. After mastering this framework, your team will know when to execute a 1v1, give & go, backdoor cut, or reverse course based on how the defense reacts.

On-Field Practice

On the field, Fried runs his offensive with coaching points throughout the session. A few keys that he covers are:

  • Focusing on speed and being effective with the ball
  • Talking when shuffling inside
  • Depth and how it relates to dodging
  • Timing cuts to receive a pass
  • Echoing calls made to the rest of the team

Another base offensive framework that Coach Fried covers is his "Iowa" set. This is another formation motion offense that starts with the ball up top, driving to the goal for a shot. In this framework, the top player must be decisive and your team must always look to reverse the field.

Fried also covers how to stall or hold the ball near the end of a close game. The keys to this strategy include spacing, the ability for every player to play every position, field awareness, and knowing where the double is coming from.

Teaching your players offensive frameworks instead of set plays allows them to create more scoring opportunities. Instead of forcing a set play, your players will be skilled at reading and reacting to the defense shown. Any coach that purchases this video will see instant improvement in their team's on-field play, intelligence, and confidence.

Zone Defense with a Rover

with Ricky Fried,
Georgetown University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach;
winningest coach in program history, US Women's National Team Head Coach, 2009-2017;

  • in 2013, at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario;

  • in 2017, at the X World Games in Wroclaw, Poland;

Philadelphia Fire Head Coach (WPLL)

Georgetown University head women's coach Ricky Fried relays his approach to zone defense, including drills and philosophy, in this instructional video. Coach Fried covers approaching attacking players with the ball outside the 8-meter arc, double technique in critical areas of the field, where to drive attacking players, and communication to run a successful zone defense.

Chalk Talk

Fried starts with a chalkboard session centered around his zone defense. You'll learn why you want to force players to specific locations on the field and how your help defense should approach the ball. Learning and mastering these basic concepts will exponentially improve your defense in a short amount of time.

Practice On the Field

Next, Coach Fried discusses how your zone defense should react based on whether the offense has one, two, or three players behind. You'll learn both the "where" and "why" related to player positioning. Using these principles will allow your athletes to understand each other's roles so they can communicate when to hold and/or switch.

One of the best drills Coach Fried covers is a 1v1 drill. In the drill, individual defenders work on the technique required to play within an effective zone defense. Athletes are trained to be aggressive at the 10-meter mark to drive their attacker into a specific area. This is a great drill to evaluate individual defenders' technique (competitive play, footwork, defensive IQ, conditioning) so you can make adjustments in your system.

As a bonus, Fried covers his "Red" and "Black" defensive approaches. In Red, players put pressure on a specific person or spot on the field. Meanwhile, Black focuses specifically on getting the ball out of an opposing athlete's hands. Using the same methodology, you can work out how your defense should react to similar scenarios.

This video will help you learn where each player should be, and why, within a zone defense. You can use these principles to determine for yourself where your athletes should be for any offensive situation you'll see during a game. This will lead to fewer defensive breakdowns and ultimately more turnovers for your team.

All Access Lacrosse Practice with Lars Tiffany: Setting the Tone for a National Championship Season

University of Virginia Head Coach;
2019 NCAA National Champions;
former Brown University Head Men's Lacrosse Coach;
2016 NCAA DI Final Four;
3x Ivy League Champions;
2015 Ivy League Coach of the Year;
Iroquois Nationals Assistant Coach;
2018 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Men's World Championship (Bronze medal)

This video shows the early stages of development, from the first two practices of the season, that cemented a strong foundation for an NCAA National Championship season in 2019 for the University of Virginia Men's Lacrosse team. Head coach Lars Tiffany lays out two days of fast-moving, drill-loaded practices. He shows how he implements skills-specific drills and how to build to a 5v5 setting. Each day focuses on certain areas of improvement, and both days show defensive drills and offensive drills that set up scrimmaging situations later in each practice.

Coach Tiffany's practices are detailed, fast paced, high level and competitive. He stresses preparation and explains in great detail how he evaluates every practice, previous games, and players. He summarizes how he takes this information and develops his strategy for his practices for the team. Additionally, Tiffany stresses team/program buy-in and how he expects his upperclassmen to mentor the younger players so they understand the culture of the team.

Practice Segments

The video is broken down into two days of practice. Both days cover defense and offense and are fast-paced. You will bounce from defensive footwork drills to offensive skeleton drills that work on perfecting a motion offense.

Coach Tiffany breaks down how he works his effective rides in games by showing a few of the drills he uses to build the mental part of the ride game. Additionally, he shows how to build a fast transition game using quick outlet clearing drills that move the ball up the field quickly to set up a fast strike to goal. 5v5 scrimmaging sequences put everything worked on in practice each day into a half-field and full-field setting.

5v4 Munro Drill

This drill is a great exercise to build endurance, field awareness and transitioning to unsettled situations. It uses both sides of the field, with each side playing 5v4. With the drill, your players will improve in:

  • Competitive play
  • Transition play
  • Odd man situations
  • Communicating
  • Clearing/riding situations

This video from Coach Tiffany is loaded with drills that build on themselves to work the small components that are necessary for fielding a successful team. No matter what level of lacrosse you coach, you will learn something useful through watching these practice sessions unfold over the first two days of the 2019 National Championship season!

University at Albany's Scott Marr has put together a video including some of the best team drills to build your lacrosse team's offensive and defensive approach. Marr and his coaching staff cover a total of 13 practice drills, as well as full field action, that lay out full transition opportunities using skills covered in the exercises throughout the video. Every drill is explained with white board diagramming before being demonstrated on the field to give you a full sense of how to run the drills with your own team.

Practice Drills

Coach Marr showcases drills that stress the importance of tempo, toughness in unsettled situations, off-ball movement, defensive rotations, clearing, riding and communication. There are a number of exercises that simulate game situations and include multiple variations so you can keep raising the bar on what you expect from your athletes.

You'll begin with a partner passing progression that Coach Marr utilizes to promote crisp passes and clean receptions. Players complete the drill and focus on activating their wrists in order to snap the ball to the target. Next, Marr and his team showcase an individual drill on the field that helps build muscle memory when retrieving ground balls.

The signature drill in this video is Marr's "Scrappin' Drill", which is designed to start off a practice session with high energy.

"Scrappin' Drill" trains:

  • Team toughness in the crease area
  • Tight space stickwork
  • Team communication
  • Defensive work while outnumbered

Film Review

Perhaps the finest part of this video is the film review segment provided by Coach Marr. In it, you'll see drills explained from both an offensive and defensive coach's perspective. This technique of listing out key points on what coaches on each side of the ball want from the drill is rare in instructional videos.
