Phi-Lacrosse-ophy Podcast

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Danielle Spencer, Head Coach Dartmouth Women's Lacrosse.  Danielle played and coached at Northwestern, won three National Championships as a player, was an All-American as well as US Team member.  We talk about her playing and coaching journey, her mentors like Northwestern Head Coach Kelly Amonte-Hiller, USC Head Coach Lindsey Munday and Colorado Head Coach Ann Elliott, her philosophy on player development, building the culture at Dartmouth and what it's like to be a first year head coach.

College Lacrosse Recruiting

One of the topics Danielle Spencer and I covered was recruiting.  She has gotten away from only looking for the biggest, fastest athletes and is looking to fill specific needs...

Welcome to "A Lacrosse Weekend" my weekly compilation of thoughts, ideas, stories, myths, truths about the great game of lacrosse. I hope you find it enjoyable!

I'm excited for another great weekend of lacrosse practices, games, activities, coaches meetings aka having beers and talking about lacrosse! It's a chilly day in Denver, but it looks like the snow is going to hold off just long enough for us to get a practice in today with the ThunderRidge HS girls team I'm coaching. We are installing the Joe Spallina Stony Brook Zone Defense today. Fired up!

The Ultimate Player 

 I remember in the spring of 1989, my senior year at Brown, there was this freshman named Chris Sciani, who was the sickest guitar player. His band played at our fraternity every weekend and he could jam like the Allman Brothers and Guns & Roses! One time I was hanging out with Chris and he had a little cassette tape he carried around in his shirt pocket.  He pulled it out and said, "You...

Welcome to "A Lacrosse Weekend" my weekly compilation of thoughts, ideas, stories, myths, truths, about the great game of lacrosse. I hope you find it enjoyable.

I write to you from the Courtyard Marriott in Chapel Hill. I'm here to watch the Tarheels take on the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays today at noon ET. It's 43 degrees and rainy and this is a huge game for both teams. The 'Heels are 3-0 and the 'Jays are 0-2 with their backs against the wall. Should be a great match up! Hopkins has never started a season 0-3 in the history of the program and will give UNC their best game.

Last night I went over to my son's house to watch the second half of the Cornell/Hobart game, which was a high scoring affair. They tried to shut off Teat, but he still had 6-2. I think he has magical powers or something the way shoots, finds the open man, gets out of trouble etc. I did an analysis of Jeff Teat a year ago and he only keeps getting better. Check out the video below.  

Afterwards, my...

Welcome to "A Lacrosse Weekend" my weekly compilation of thoughts, ideas, stories, myths, truths about the great game of lacrosse. I hope you enjoy it!

A great lacrosse weekend began yesterday. My daughter, her teammate and I swung by the University of Denver to watch the Louisville Women's practice, which was awesome. Coach Teeter ran some great drills that I am going to steal for my girls high school team involving a ton of two man game concepts. A quick stop at Chipotle, then over to the ThunderRidge high school grass fields to shoot on a former DI men's goalie. We wanted to get some shots in and I needed to film a few things for the JM3 Girls Academy. At 6pm, the head coach of the T'Ridge girls team, Doc Srdoc, came by my house and we watched the Northwestern/Dartmouth game and talked about our upcoming season. Finally, I followed along with the Oregon/San Diego State game through my wife's texts as the Ducks are playing two games in Las Vegas this weekend.

College lacrosse season is now in full swing and I find myself writing to you from the Holiday Inn Express in Eugene, OR. We are here to watch our daughter and the Ducks take on Mercer. I don't think anyone else besides my wife and I can claim to have seen Mercer's men's and women's team in their respective openers! On the other coast our son and the Tarheels take on Furman. At least we live in the middle! It's going to really heat up in our household when HS lacrosse starts as I'm coaching my youngest daughter's team, which I'm so fired up for!

JM3 Road Trip Videos

This week I did a couple Facebook Lives where I shared a bunch of behind the scenes video, photos and stories from the greatest lacrosse trip ever! My RV crew and I are rooting hard for the teams we visited and so far so good! Congrats to High Point and Colgate on their...

JM3 Road Trip

This 12 day, 11 school RV adventure was a trip of a lifetime. Thanks to all the coaches and programs that made this tour possible and incredibly fun. Thanks to my crew Matt Noble (Driver/lacrosse spiritual leader), Rocco Romero (Navigator, videographer, and DJ) and Drew Wardlow (blogger, videographer, and all around great guy!). These guys were SO much fun to hang out with! I got the idea for the road trip brainstorming on ways to create incredible new content for the Coaches Training Program. We captured around 50 hours of video from conversations, whiteboard sessions, video and practice. Check out www.JM3Coaches.com for more info.

I have created about a year's worth of content in the last 3 weeks. The week prior to the JM3 Road Trip, I executed the first ever Virtual Lacrosse Summit ...

We have a special treat this week! A guest blog from my friend, mentor, and former coach Dom Starsia.

 

As I have mentioned in the past few weeks, I am in the middle of an epic lacrosse tour. So far we have visited Northwestern, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Cleveland State and today we’re off to Penn State for their Army scrimmage. We have shot a ton of video documenting this amazing trip, but for now if you want to read about our Odyssey, Drew Wardlow of FCA Lacrosse who has been traveling with us, is writing a daily blog of all the stories and occurrences for Inside Lacrosse. Check it out! JM3 Roadtrip: Day 4 at Ohio State

 

 

“Where’s My Ring?” by Dom Starsia

Having been fortunate to be part of some Championship teams, there is always a little bit of a question afterwards about who will receive a championship ring. I am sure that most coaches who find themselves faced with that fortuitous dilemma...

Lacrosse Virtual Summit

Wow! What a whirlwind! Such an amazing group of passionate and knowledgeable presenters and a myriad of topics: men's lacrosse, women's lacrosse, offense/defense, rides, transition, skills, game breakdowns, youth lacrosse, box lacrosse, analytics, leadership, and business topics!

Here is the list of presenters:

    • TJ Buchanan, Technical Director US Lacrosse: "Small Games that do Big Things", drills, concepts and the science behind why small area games are critical for youth lacrosse.
    • John Paul, Head Coach PLL: "Attacking 10 man ride", if you want to run a 10 man, watch this presentation. JP also hooks us up with a sweet little wrinkle on a deceptive way to "fake" your 10 man and run a match-feet ride that gets your best LSM on a defender carrying it over.
    • Mikey Thompson, Head Coach Christopher Newport...
