Get your Copy Now! Practice Guide for Coaches

back cover final

Read the back cover above for some feedback on the new book, which was officially published today!

What’s in the guide?

  • Drills- lots of em! – fun imaginative drills that seem much more like fun than work, but that are effective for quick learning
  • Special considerations for the youth player- things to keep in mind to keep your youth team engaged
  • Practice Plan Template and breakdown
  • Team, player, parent expectation sheet
  • Team thought activity to get them thinking about being the best they can be
  • Keeping goalies occupied while you run field drills
  • Games, icebreakers and fun that still focus on athletic concepts but feel more like a reward to the kids

What’s not in the guide:

Breakdown of rules, how to play the game, technical details like field dimensions, etc.  Those are available in great resources already available through US Lacrosse and books like Janine Tucker’s A Baffled Parents Guide to Coaching Girls’ Lacrosse.

On a side note: I’m a lacrosse coach before I am a writer/editor.  If you are a grammar fanatic you may not like me very much, but if you need lacrosse stuff – this book has got it and then some! I hope you love it!

  1. So proud of you, Kate. Having coached with you, I can give testimony to the team experience. You care more than anyone I know about the girls as individual players, giving them the most positive experience they have ever seen or heard of, making them want to be around you all the time. This is the place they want to be because it is a place they will soar into who they were meant to be as players and individuals. I feel privileged to have watched you consciously make the decision to be both passionate and completely committed to positive and fun play. How refreshing and exciting it can be if we harness in and accept the ride to creative coaching. You’re amazing! All His best in your quest to make going to practice heaven on earth! I will sell your book anywhere you’d like me to go. Send me!
