Here's an out of bounds play that provides an opportunity to take advantage of the defense. The defense is focused on the proper match-ups and finding the ball at the same time. We will use multiple actions (dummy cuts, picks and the like) in an offensive set play, confusing the defense as it does not mirror your normal offensive sets.
A2 drives to ward the goal; as he does M3 Clears through. A1 fakes a pick, then provides back-up for any shot.
M2 dummy cuts down center and then breaks back side.
A3 staggers his drive and cuts off of M2's dummy cut.
If A 3 not open, A 3 should pick down low for M2 who should be open.
If no-one open offensive reverts back into a 1-4-1 offensive set.
John Kenney has coached at top high schools in New York and Michigan and publishes the LACROSSE COACH Newsletter. Now in it's third year of publication, Lacrosse Coach provides valuable information to coaches in every phase of lacrosse coaching and is the best source of regular information for the lacrosse coaching professional. Each issue features many articles on varioua aspects of coaching the game.
Lacrosse Coach is highly recommended by E-Lacrosse for any lacrosse coach. Just imagine a whole newsletter as valuable as the advice you've just read, published quarterly, covering all aspects of the game. And it's only $18.95 a year. You can just read Coach Kenney's monthly column here on E-Lacrosse for free and have a distinct advantage over those who haven't. But, what if the coach of the team you face next week is reading all of Coach Kenney's articles in the newsletter. In our opinion, one can spend 30 years accumulating coaching experience or spend the 20 bucks and trust John Kenney.
