5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing Girls' Lacrosse into the Modern Era 5 Mar 2003
By "tommyboy410" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is perfect for coaches and players who are new to the game of girls'/women's Lacrosse. Several years ago, when I was recruited to coach my daughter's youth league team, I searched high and low for a book, such as this one, covering the girls' game. I found plenty of books for boy's Lacrosse and a few that had a chapter or two covering girls' Lacrosse. Often, these books covered very outdated techniques and methods. Bottom line, there was no comprehensive guide for teaching and developing young girls into well-rounded Lacrosse players. Coach Tucker's book is a great guide for dad's like me who have men's Lacrosse experience, beginning coaches, new players, and, of course, baffled parents. My favorite section covers the suggested drills. Each drill is clearly defined and well diagramed. She also provides great advice for managing practice and keeping the girls involved and excited about playing lacrosse. I plan to implement many of her suggestions into my practices. A must read for coaches and parents who are interested in developing technically sound players who love the game of girls' Lacrosse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Women's Lacrosse Training Book 14 May 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent tool for getting a better understanding on how to support and help my daughter improve in lacrosse. I wanted to play an active role by getting the book as well as equipment for both of us. Now we toss the ball to each other and practice what we've read in the book. She's definitely getting better.

5.0 out of 5 stars From just a dad to head coach in less than 24 hours, this book saved my season 20 Mar 2013
By Jeffrey Schnur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My daughters' team needed an assistant coach, I volunteered. Then the head coach was injured and they needed a new head coach, I volunteered. All this happened in less than 24 hours. Having never played lacrosse, I was mortified. I turned to Amazon and found this book. Another coach recommended it and I bought it hardcopy and read it cover to cover. I then got the kindle version to use with my iPad during practices. The title of the book says it all. This book explained what I needed to know and how to set up my practices and what to emphasize. My assistant coach downloaded it too so we would be on the same page with respect to the drills we would be running. I can't imagine this endeavor without this book as a guide.

By Daily Lamma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't let the title fool you, anyone with an interest in girl's lacrosse will benefit from reading this. Players, Parents, Coaches, etc. It does a really nice job of going over the basics and emphasizing what is important for a female lacrosse player. She offers some fun games and drills that can be used at any level.
