with Rick Sowell,
US Naval Academy Head Coach,
former Stony Brook University Head Coach;
Rick Sowell provides a front row seat for three full practices as the Stony Brook Seawolves get ready for the 2011 season opener. Watch and listen in as Coach Sowell prepares his team for their upcoming opponent Virginia.
Each practice is recorded live, as it happens, beginning in the locker room where Sowell discusses key factors in preparing for their next opponent. He breaks down game footage and practice footage to point out the teams strengths and weaknesses. On the practice field, the team goes through a series of prepractice drills and warmups before getting into the heart of practice.
Day 1: See a variety of drills including: small group defense drills working on communication, ground balls under pressure, high frequency shooting, passing on the run, 1on1 alley work to beat a defender, and scoring from behind the net.
The team also engages in a full field scrimmage with a focus on playing hard, dodging, clearing and running plays under pressure. At the end of practice, Sowell works on extra man and man down situations.
Day 2: Day 2 drills include clearing, shooting, and ground balls. You will also see the team working on their zone offense and zone defense with a focus on quick ball movement, staying active, and having patience.
Again, the team works on extra man and man down situations concentrating on the faceoff and clearing.
Day 3: Much of this practice focuses on what Sowell expects to see from their next opponent. As preparation, he runs full field 4on3, 5on4 drills, as well as half field 4on4 drills that work on picking and popping and defending the pick.
Finally, see a full field scrimmage using plays and scenarios meant to prepare both the offense and defense for their upcoming opponent.
