10 Fundamental Tips for Coaching Youth Lacrosse

This is a great article that I read a few weeks ago. Even after coaching for a few years it is good to read things like this to put things back into perspective and get back to the fundamentals of the game.  I especially like #'s 1 & 3.  For #4 I can help with drills for this.  I will be posting some of these soon to the site. 

1. Fun is essential.

2. Teach sportsmanship early.

3. Remember that kids are not mini-adults.

4. Design age-appropriate practices.

5. Define success appropriately for each age group.

6. Provide positive feedback.

7. Save specialization for older kids.

8. Avoid over-training.

9. Use appropriate equipment.

10. Avoid "playing up."
