Inside The 8 Podcast with UNC Head Coach, Jenny Levy

This week on Inside the 8 Podcast, Colleen hosted a solo episode with North Carolina Head Coach, Jenny Levy. The episode dives into the Basketball/Lacrosse connection on attack and how to read your defenders. The two of them break down the Carolina explosive offense and how much IQ plays into the way Jenny coaches and organizes her offense. The episode is great for players and coaches to listen to one of the best in the game.

 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...

Podcasts This Week

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!

 Lars Tiffany, Head Coach Virginia,  LT and I were captains of the '89 Brown Lacrosse team and have been great friends through college and through our days as colleagues in college lacrosse and beyond.  I love the rapport Lars and I have and the conversations we are now recording on podcasts are similar to the Lacrosse Philosophy conversations we have been having for 30 years!  One of the amazing things about Lars is he is very open minded and is continually learning and evolving.  This trait is glaringly obvious in this podcast where we discuss defensive footwork and how two days before...
