 Andy Shay Podcast

One of my favorite people to talk lacrosse with is Andy Shay, Head Coach at Yale.  Andy is a learning machine who is always experimenting with new approaches to everything from player development to strength and conditioning, to X's and O's.  Andy is a believer in the Constraints Led Approach to coaching and we talk about this at length in this podcast.  The book the "Talent Code" by Dan Coyle had a profound impact on Andy and his coaching and taught him the concept and importance of creating "Friction" to allow for the central nervous system to adapt to challenges.  We talked a lot about different constraints he uses in practice...

Lacrosse, A Passing Game

One of the trademarks of a good player or a good team is their ability and propensity to move the ball.  To be a great player one must be a great passer.  Being a great passer doesn't just mean being a great feeder, it also means knowing when to move the ball on to the next player for the sake of team offense.  Ball movement is critical to great team offense:

  • spreads the defense out
  • creates difficult approaches
  • Creates new roles and responsibilities
  • Allows the offense to capitalize on advantages
  • Assisted shots score at a higher rate than unassisted shots

 One of the biggest struggles most coaches will have when trying to...

Lars Tiffany Podcast

LT and I go way back!  Lars was one year behind me at Brown and we were captains of the 1989 Brown Lacrosse team together.  Our paths have continued to cross throughout our careers as we are both complete lacrosse nerds who can literally talk lacrosse all day!

Podcasts with Lars are a treat for me because he is open to new ideas and is always has interesting stuff to share!  Since I'm always up for learning something new and he's always up for learning something new, our lacrosse conversations are fun!  Another cool thing about LT is that he doesn't hold anything back.  While some coaches are very guarded and careful about what...

 2022 in Review

I apologize that this blog is coming to you a week late, but I was traveling and coaching in Orlando with JM3 National Teams and just couldn't get it done! 

2022 was an amazing year on many levels!  It was the 5th and final season for my two older kids, Colin at Georgetown and Emily at ASU.  Both teams had great seasons with very sad finishes!  Georgetown with a heartbreaking loss to Delaware in the first round of the NCAA Tourney as a #2 seed and ASU's epic NCAA Tourney snub!

So just like that, no more trips to DC and no more trips to Tempe.  I have to say I LOVED those trips and I'm going to miss everything about...

The Art Of Feeding

First, let's define the difference between a Feed and a Pass.  A feed is a pass that leads directly to a shot.  If you are passing to a shooter, it's a feed.  The exception to this statement is the concept of "Feeding a Feeder" where a timely and deceptive pass to a feeder like in a Nations Look or in a Hang up at X opens up a great feeding opportunity.

The video below is an in depth and awesome look at every feed in the book from the fundamentals of feeding as well as the cutting edge skills you need to know!  Below are the feeds you will learn! 

Deceptive Feeding

There are dozens of variations of deceptive...

Installing the 141 Offense - JM3 YouTube Channel

When I launched the JM3 Sports Coaches Training Program in 2018 my goal was to create content that was both cutting edge and practical: a Division I coach would take something away from a presentation and a high school or Youth coach could apply the concepts for their teams.  I'm excited to share some of my favorite all time content like this 141 breakdown with the world on our JM3 YouTube Channel!

One of the revelations I had while producing this webinar is that the 141 and it's "Hot Spots" are the foundation of every modern dodging / spacing offense.  Therefore mastering and understanding...
