On-Field Coaching Clinic
On-Field Coaching Clinic
Homegrown Lacrosse's On-Field Coaching Clinic provides coaches from across the state the opportunity to come together, share and learn.
Open to coaches of at all levels and experience, the On-Field Coaching Clinic presents concepts visually rather than through whiteboard drawings. Minnesota Chill coaching staff and players will demonstrate and share offensive and defensive drills and strategies. Additionally, seasoned high school coaches will offer tips and advice they've learned over the years.
Beyond the demonstrations, the true value of the Coaching Clinic is the sharing among participants and building relationships throughout the Minnesota lacrosse community.
Date: Saturday, March 21, 2015
Time: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Location: Concordia University, 1380 Concordia Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55104

New US Lacrosse Youth Rules & Best Practices Guidebooks
New US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Best Practices Guidebooks Now Available
US Lacrosse, the national governing body of men’s and women’s lacrosse, is in the midst of a comprehensive effort to improve the quality of experience for everyone associated with youth lacrosse. A key component of this effort is the development of consistent national rules that are based on the physical, cognitive and psychological development stages of children. The US Lacrosse youth rules have been developed with those stages in mind to focus on player development, team play, sportsmanship and safety.
The Youth Rules and Best Practices Guidebooks are intended as educational tools for players, parents, coaches, officials and administrators to help explain the rules and the rationale behind the rules. The best practices included in these books are as important as the rules. They provide guidelines for youth lacrosse organizations to make sure the emphasis is where it should be – on the health and well-being of the children playing the sport, and their enjoyment and development in the game.
