Marc Van Arsdale, Assistant Coach/Offensive Coordinator Loyola: I think you will love this podcast where Marc Van takes us through his incredible lacrosse journey!  His list of coaches he's played or worked for: Jerry Schmidt, Dave Urick, Dick Garber, Scott Nelson, Ace Adams, Dom Starsia and Charley Toomey is insane!  All Hall of Famers or National Champions!  Maybe the only list more impressive is his list of attackmen he's coached: Michael Watson, Doug Knight, Timmy Whitely, Matt Ward, Ben Rebeor, Garret Billings, Connor Gill, Danny Gladding, Steele Stanwick, Zed Williams and Pat Spencer.

Marc says about his attackmen, it's hard to compare, it's like comparing your children, but he did say unequivocally, Pat Spencer was the best he's ever coached!  Marc and I chat at length...

Manhattan Head Coach, Drew Kelleher, This podcast was a blast because Drew Kelleher is one of the best guys in the game.  Sharp and cutting edge, Drew is fun and has a great sense of humor.  We became friends back when he was first at BU, before they even had a team.  He would join us at multiple 3d events where he would recruit and coach and we talked a lot of lacrosse.  I think you will love the conversation around how he teaches dodging.  The ability to draw slides to generate offense is key and in a rebuilding situation like Manhattan, it was critical that they could breakdown match ups.  Listen to the technique Drew teaches!  Click here for the Drew Kelleher podcast!

Kevin Corrigan, Head Coach Notre Dame, KC and I go way back: he has been a friend, a mentor, a competitor, he recruited my son, I spent a summer with his son Will as my intern, and we love to talk lacrosse!  Kevin Corrigan is really smart, well read, and interested in learning as well as sharing.  We kicked off the conversation talking about ND fall ball and how there is a sense of normalcy on campus.  I hope all institutions will follow the leadership of Notre Dame!  The conversation turned to some really cool lacrosse topics including: how to teach the "Full Field" game, the process of understanding, reading, decision making and executing and how this works in riding/clearing, defense / offense and more!  We finish up with a great conversation about recruiting in...

Sean Kirwan, Offensive Coordinator Virginia, is one of the brightest offensive minds in college lacrosse!  This conversation will not disappoint!  We talk about NBA basketball, and how Hostage Dribble  can be an effective counter to a pick defense called Ice!  (I work on "Hostage Dribble" with my JM3 Athletes and it's becoming a game changer!)

 

We talked a lot of PLL and MLL lacrosse, discussing some of the game's best players and what makes them great!  We finished up the conversation talking about recruiting in the COVID era.  There are a lot of things Sean is looking for in a player, but one of the most important and interesting is a player who can see the field.  He looks for players who know what they're going to do before they get the ball and ID's this...

Mike Boyle and The Secret of Speed Training

Can we all agree that speed is critical!  That you can't be too fast!  It's like being too good looking or too rich.  All over the lacrosse world people are spending time and money on strength and conditioning programs as well as speed training because they know how important it is.

The sad thing is a huge percentage of folks are spinning their wheels and or risking injury with sub par programs and coaching. 

Watch this webinar I did with Mike Boyle the other night for my JM3 Athletes and families and you will have the education you need to make great choices for your players on strength and conditioning.

Ted Suihkonen is the Director of Player Development for HC Locamotiv in a town 3.5 hours northeast of Moscow.  I started following Ted on Twitter and have been blown away by his tweets on coaching, learning, and teaching.  Ted talks about unlocking creativity in his players by not providing the answers.   

One part of our conversation that I found most profound was a story Ted told about watching his 8 year old son play in a small area 2v2 game.  Ted, sitting up in the stands, decided to write down on a note pad every skill he saw his young son execute in this little game.  One skill Ted described as a move with the puck where the boy squared up to his defender with skates facing out, right foot to the right and left foot to the left, giving him the...

Joe Keegan, PLL Writer and Stats Analyst: Joe is one of the best guys in the sport, i tireless worker, a student of the game and a self made man through his efforts in recording and analyzing stats.  And I love how much Joe loves lacrosse!  We talked about the genesis of analytics career and the impact of the late, great, Dave Huntley who was one of the first high profile coaches and lacrosse guys to take a deep dive into stats.  Hunts presented at the US Lacrosse convention, a study of 15,000 MLL shots in 2015 and 2016, looking at where the shot was taken and if it was right handed, left handed or behind the back.  This presentation, which proved shooting with your stick to the middle or not has a massive impact on shooting percentage, was a spring board for Joe...

JM3 Athlete Program

There is one week and three spots remaining in a registration window to sign up for the JM3 Athlete Program.  In this program I work with athletes and families and put them on a trajectory of development and exposure that they would otherwise never know.   I have created a new model of player development that is so effective and such a breath of fresh air you may not believe it!  

For me, this is an exciting time of year to watch the newly minted summer highlight videos from my JM3 Athletes.  The free play model is manifested in improved confidence, poise, ability to slow down, the use of deception and a new repertoire of skills that the boys and girls players actually use in games!  In the Jm3 Athlete program we combine the joy and...
