Book Description

1 Oct 2009
Once predominantly thought of as an American sport, lacrosse is now spreading throughout the world, with many taking up the challenge of learning the fastest game on two feet. "Winning Women's Lacrosse" is the only comprehensive guide to this fast growing sport, authored by one of the game's most skilled and decorated coaches. Kelly Amonte-Hiller shares the skill instruction and team execution that has helped her to win multiple NCAA National Championships and the respect of her peers. Through her teachings, readers will learn: individual offensive and defensive skills and techniques; team execution for offense and defense; specialty skills for field players and goalkeepers; drills for conditioning and game-like situations; and, how to maximise the quality of practice time. The text also provides basic-level team execution strategies for many of the more common ingame situations, along with ready-to-use practice plans for coaches of women's lacrosse teams. Amonte-Hiller's considerable knowledge and technical know-how, combined with the first-hand experience of two of her former players - Ashley Gersuk and Anne Elliott - makes for a well rounded read that focuses on skill development and player refinement. These drills and instructions are suitable for use in developing players from the junior level through to college competition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Winner of a Book! 2 Nov 2009
By Didi Hughes - Published on
This is the definitive "how-to" book on lacrosse! Kelly Amonte Hiller has proven her successful coaching skills on the field, and her book is a comprehensive insructional manual on how to play her brand of winning lacrosse.

Beginning with an introduction which highlights the importance of adopting a positive attitude towards the game, Amonte Hiller imparts her detailed, thorough understanding of the game of lacrosse. In a clear and concise manner, chapter by chapter, she breaks down the mechanics of the game, while providing helpful photos of specific skills, as well as diagrams to illustrate her instruction.

The format includes both individual and team development skills, and concludes with specific drills to effectively master the game.
This is a book which will provide comprehensive instruction for the novice coach and player, as well as help fine-tune the skills of an experienced coach and advanced player. Its approach is simultaneously analytical and user-friendly. A "must-read" for any player or coach looking to improve their game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great basics and beyond 5 Jun 2012
By David W - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wish I had bought this book when my daughter first started playing lacrosse two years ago, and it should be mandatory reading for any girls lacrosse coaches, at least below the high school level (and maybe at that level too). Yes, you can get info other places, but this puts it all in one place. It was so good that I also bought the Amonte video on the basics, which is a great supplement to the book although much more expensive.
