 Brodie Merrill Podcast

Brodie Merrill is simply one of the best people, athletes, lacrosse players, defenders, box players, teammates, leaders you will ever meet!  This was the second podcast I've done with Brodie and it was so great!

I first saw Brodie play lacrosse in the 1999 Ontario Junior A semi finals where his Orangeville Northman were taking on the St Catharines Athletics in a 7 game series.  I saw this 6'4'' lefty who played top center on the power play and I was dreaming of him in a Denver uniform scoring goals!  Then someone turned and said, he's a defenseman and he's going to Georgetown.  I was blown away that a player with that level...

 Best Recruiting Advice Ever!
 
I always tell my JM3 Athletes that if they can learn how to master off ball 2man game, not only will their offensive production / their team's offensive production improve, but they can prove to college coaches that they have as skill that most prospects do not have.  
 
Why is this the best recruiting advice ever?  Because the best thing you can do for your recruiting chances is to get better at lacrosse.  And the easiest way to get better is to scale your knowledge and usage of off ball 2man games!
 
College recruiters will always covet the player who can breakdown...

Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcast

Scotty Marr, Head Coach University of Albany: Scotty is one of my favorite people in the sport and it was a blast to have this conversation about a myriad of topics: his practice set lists (lots of Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin and Pearl Jam!),  thoughts on the power of box lacrosse and how it shapes Canadian and Native lacrosse players, the brilliance of Blaze Riorden and that UAlbany, known for it's scoring, could be known as "Goalie U" with three players in the PLL, and finally a great discussion on what Coach Marr is looking for in recruiting.  I think you will love this podcast, click here to listen!

Mindset Skill of the Week | S.T.O.P

Mikey Thompson, Head Coach at Christopher Newport works with me and JM3 Sports and is a regular contributor to this blog.  One of Mikey's passions is teaching and practicing "Mindfulness."  I hope you enjoy! 
 
The informal practice of mindfulness is when we choose to be mindful in everyday moments throughout the course of the day. Examples: washing our hands, doing the dishes, going for a walk. There are limitless opportunities! 
 
 
STOP
  • Stop present moment and cultivate our pause button. Building these, "stops" into our day can move us away from habitual reactions and towards more graceful ...

Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcasts

Andrew Gvozden, Co-Founder GoalieSmith, I loved this podcast!  GoalieSmith has become the premier goalie training outfit in the world and they train most of the best, if not all the best goalies around. Andrew shared his journey from Severna Park, Maryland up to Hofstra where he became an All-American goalie, through the genesis of GoalieSmith.  We got into details about his philosophy on training goalies, stance, arc, the importance of reading situations, "Dictating" (his word for baiting), goalies need to be great lacrosse players, and finally college lacrosse recruiting!  Find out what college coaches want in a goalie!

This is one of the few podcasts that I've done...

In this podcast, I have a fascinating conversation with High Performance Thought Leader Dr. Erik Korem. Below is a quote from Erik High Performance:

Korem was the first High Performance coach in the USA and has spent his career working with college, pro, and olympic athletes.  Dr Korem has a PHD in how sleep...
