Stanford Head Coach Amy Bokker provides three days of Cardinal lacrosse practices including dynamic warmup exercise drills, stickwork drills, clearing pattern drills, defensive drills and shooting drills.
Coach Bokker and her staff continuously bring their accomplished experience to bear on the development of their players. Not only do they state in clear terms what the drills are intended to accomplish, but continuous coaching and guidance is provided to sharpen each players efforts to correctly master the skills presented.
One of the best parts of this video is the emphasis on communication. Coach Bokker explains to the players the comprehensive importance of communication. Not simply the onfield communication between players but also the encouragement from the bench to the players on the field.
It is this continued positive reinforcement from each other, not just from the coaches, that will ultimately set the tone for how aggressive and successful your practice will be. By continuously encouraging each other, the team is elevated to a higher level of performance and intensity. By following this example, you can help your team get more out of your practice time and reach your highest potential!
