The Survival Guide for New Coaches also includes fundamental skills breakdown, basic drills, practice planners and more.

Alberta Lacrosse Association:

The ALA (Alberta Lacrosse Association) and GELC (Greater Edmonton Lacrosse Council) website offers a lot of information for coaches. This includes basic skill, equipment and stick awareness, drills, NLL Coach Mentor Presentations, Practice Plans, Drills and more. Paul Rai and the development team have expanded the ALA website to offer lots of resources. This is a great resource for both new and experienced coaches:



We live in a new age where athletes and coaches have an unlimited supply of resources at their fingertips whether they be online, in a book or on TV. There is no excuse for a lack of knowledge on skills, a limited drill book or inability to understand and teach both tactical and technical lacrosse skills. It is up to us coaches to develop both skill and Lacrosse IQ. Below are various different resources for coaches:
