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.

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.
Virtual Lacrosse Summit
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.

“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...

Last June I decided to start a podcast based on "Lacrosse Philosophy" which is basically another way of saying, I decided to record the conversations I was having anyway! It's my favorite time of the week! My goal with these podcasts was to try and get into the minds of some of the biggest names in the sport and ask questions that would shed light, answer questions, and educate three distinct groups: parents, players, and coaches.
• Parents: if you listen to these podcasts, you will find out what to do in trying to navigate the murky waters of player development, club lacrosse and recruiting. Every guest gives their opinion on these three topics in one way or another. What's incredibly fascinating is hearing what they do with their own kids!
• Coaches: whether you are coaching...
