This new edition of Coaching Youth Lacrosse is part of the improved generation of the American Sport Education Program’s (ASEP) Coaching Youth Sports series. A widely respected and highly popular series, this is the best collection of youth sport-specific guides, which are grounded in positive coaching principles.
ASEP, the nation’s No. 1 coaching education program, developed Coaching Youth Lacrosse to provide coaches with both an explanation of their role and concrete instructions on fulfilling that role. Coaching Youth Lacrosse contains specific programs for both boys and girls lacrosse, including specifics on equipment, season plans, games and tactics. You will find chapters on communicating with your athletes and their parents, teaching and developing lacrosse skills, planning and conducting practices, and coaching during games.
This second edition includes a special chapter on the games approach to coaching lacrosse, which makes practice more fun for the kids and teaching more effective for you, the coach.
The American Sport Education Program (ASEP) is the most widely used and respected sport education program in the United States. More than 30 states now require ASEP courses for their high school coaches, and more than 200 universities use ASEP courses and resources. Over one million people—coaches, parents, and directors alike—have used ASEP products since the program began in 1981. The ASEP headquarters is located in Champaign, Illinios.
"Coaching Youth Lacrosse should be under the arm of every youth lacrosse coach in the country! This book can help veteran coaches increase their skills and give novice coaches the guidance they need to coach lacrosse with confidence."
