Pre-Season…Right Around the Corner

Like a lot of you, I’m in that one week of the year where I’m in between seasons. Just finished coaching the U-13 girls basketball and am getting ready for U-13 girls lax which starts next week. As I’m getting fired up for the lax season, I find myself going through some advice that the Kudda coaches have given in regards to the start of the season. Fun and Fundamentals!!! Coaches have got to stress the fundamentals while keeping it fun. Still need to do the shuttle lines and passing drills but also need to make sure we have time in practices to scrimmage and just play. I had the pleasure of working with Brian Duncan, former head coach at Essex Junior College and current assistant at Jacksonville, last week and he offers more advice about early season practices. Scroll down the clinics list to Brian Duncan.
