On the Defense
with Lars Tiffany, Brown University Head Men's Lacrosse Coach
Coach Tiffany presents a step-by-step development of the fundamentals of man down defense. He begins with a discussion on personnel. Man down defense relies on anticipation of skip lanes and the ability to knock down passes and shots. Tiffany has created a catalog of drills that can help identify and improve the personnel for man down defense.
The 2 v 1 knock down drill works on the drop step technique and the 4 v 2 drill puts two defenders in an urgent situation and requires communication and changing positions.
The 5 v 3 drill addresses the skip lanes.
A drill to develop offense and man down defensive technique is the 3v2/4v3/5v4 drill.
A section on terminology is important to define all-important verbal calls in lacrosse.
