This is very important for you to attend, especially if you want to be a head or select coach. 
With the guidance of Coach Laden we are putting into place a "system" of coaching in the West feeder program. This is being done so that our boys will get more consistent coaching as they rise through the ranks into the high school level. More on this at the Friday night session.
The focus will be for us to learn how to coach 10-15 sound fundamental drills, why they are important and how they will help our players become better at the sport of lacrosse. 
Not only will you be taught by some of the best coaches in the country, but we will implement this into our fall program at each age group one day a week so that all coaches will become comfortable in running these drills and understand why they are important. The format will be per age group, one group practice with all coaches running a station and rotating stations each week so that the coaches will own these drills by the end of the fall season in preparation for our spring season. The second practice of the week will be an individual team practice.
If you have any questions, please call me at (678) 622-4234
Let's show up big for this! The Friday night session will most likely be held at West High cafeteria and the Saturday portion at SMP. PLEASE FORWARD TO YOUR ASSISTANT COACHES!!!
