Learning From Duke – Video

Posted: November 3, 2011 by Paul Rai in Alberta Lacrosse, College Lacrosse, Drills, Field Lacrosse, Video, Vimy Lacrosse

My experience working with youth lacrosse players, especially when we travel down south to take on American field lacrosse teams, is that we struggle with the clearing game.  We always want to work on the offense, the power play and the other “sexy” parts of the game.  But what happens is we struggle so mightily with the clear that we never play offense.  We are stuck in our end of the field trying to defend.  Now when I work with teams I focus a lot of attention on clearing the ball.  It is a fundamental part of the game that requires careful attention.  Below you will find a video from the Duke lacrosse coaches going over the fundamentals of the clearing game.  It is a great video.  There is more.  Go to this link to see several more great coaching videos from Duke.  Make sure you look for the archived lax clinic.  Extremely valuable coaching resources for the field game.
