 The Easiest CTO in the game! 

Kevin Corrigan's Notre Dame teams are always disciplined and relentless on the ride. He says to his attackman, "your number one goal is to TURN THEM ONE TIME." If your team is not concerned with throwing checks and has the mentality to take a good angle and simply "turn them one time", you will generate some very easy caused turnovers! There's nothing better than turning a defenseman, getting some ball pressure, and watching him throw an over pass over someone's head. You see this all the time even at the highest level and it's a great rule to implement with your team to buy you more possessions. Don't allow them to beat you to the...

Reading The Defense

I've written a lot about the incredible benefits of the Principles Based Offense with none more important than the opportunity for coaches to prioritize and focus on arguably the most important part of any offense: Reading the Defense.  In traditional offenses, coaches must spend time, installing, teaching and repping, all of the different sets, motions or plays in the playbook.  Once the players know the offenses, the coaches can begin teaching the various "Reads" of how opposing teams will defend against each set/motion/play.   The advantage of the Principles Based Offense is a coach can invest more time in teaching how...

Putting Your Big-Little Invert On Steroids

Rolling a 3rd player behind the net on Big-Little Inverts  is a simple and incredibly effective way to create a very challenging situation for the defense.  In this 3man action behind, the law of "Addition by Subtraction" is in full effect, opening up the middle and leaving a 3v3 in front of the net.  

  • Single invert, a slide leaves 4 to cover 5
  • Big-Little invert, slide leaves 3 to cover 4
  • 3man Action, a slide leaves 2 to cover 3

3man actions create complexity of communication and decision making for the defense yet are surprisingly easy for the offense.  Think about this, you're on...

 Colleen's Corner: The Penn Charter Motion Offense

I am now officially into week 4 of my High School season and my girls are having a blast with our offense and we are scoring a lot of goals. We opened up with a scrimmage vs Harriton winning 22-2, a league game against nationally-ranked Episcopal winning 14-8, and yesterday we beat a strong top ten ranked Philly team, Bishop Shanahan, 14-10. The best part of all the games is we could have scored more goals if we put our shots away because we had the opportunities. 
 
We moved to 3 different motion sets this year which consist of Syracuse's weave offense, Northwestern's wildcat offense, and...

The Inside the 8 Podcast with Colleen Magarity this week we focus on college lacrosse recruiting and the topic is "Reclassing."   This phenomenon occurs all the time in men's lacrosse and has been happening in women's lacrosse as well, but now with the NCAA Dead Period having effected so many kids' recruitment combined with the NCAA granting an extra year of eligibility to four years of college athletes , we will likely see more of it.  Colleen and I go into depth on how it works, how college coaches view Reclassing, and we cover frequently asked questions.  Click Here to listen to this podcast!
