Using Kudda Games to Help Teach Lacrosse

Using Kudda Games to Help Teach Lacrosse

Over the past few years we have heard from countless coaches throughout the country comment on how they use the Kudda Game of the Week to help teach various facets of the game to their players. It is an excellent way to see how the drills and offenses that teams work on in practice are applied in actual games. For example, we have been lucky to have the nations top team the past few years, Boys Latin, demonstrate the importance of winning faceoffs through solid wing play. Watching those BL games has also emphasized the use of Motion Offense and great ball movement to attack the goal. Other teams, like St Pauls, can demonstrate the excellent stick work and passing that is accustomed to MIAA play. And by watching some of the McDonogh games, the speed and skill of the long poles can be emphasized.
Teams can easily watch, review and learn from these top teams. We hear that coaches will instruct their players to watch certain time frames within a game to see how that team runs man-up, clears or rides that they may use in their own arsenal. The ability to see the actual play being used in a game that they can watch again and again has proven to be a great teaching tool. Plus, you get to hear Booker call the action; always an entertaining way to watch the nations top HS lacrosse conference.
So we commend the coaches who are using the Games as a teaching tool and encourage more coaches to do the same.
