with Dom Starsia, University of Virginia Head Coach
Transition lacrosse starts with an aggressive defense, and any defensive system can be utilized with a good offensive team. Using on-field demonstration and a detailed marker-board presentation, Coach Starsia maps out the concepts of transition play. Starsia urges that the "seeds for success" be "planted" in the early days of preparation. Personnel, language, theories and organization of team as approaching the regular season are all important to the development of transition play. These drills include full-field drills, the "Hammer Cut," full-field scramble, patterns in the box and other drills in an unsettled situation. Included in this extensive DVD are strategies for moving the ball from the defensive end to the offensive end, managing the clock, developing speed in the midfield and having a high-level, unselfish attack mode. These drills will help you understand your priorities such as filling spaces as quickly as possible, getting the ball to the attack man at the end of the field and making the best use of speed. Starsia' s instruction in this DVD is essential for accomplishing a potent transition play at any level.
