Each chapter provides a detailed explanation of a specific skill or technique, illustrated with easy-to-read instructional diagrams and photographs. Coach Tucker begins with lacrosse survival skills—throwing, catching, cradling, and scooping ground balls—and then moves on to more advanced techniques, such as precise checking, fast footwork, correct stick and body position, deceptive shooting, and quick dodges. Chapters on cutting-edge offensive and defensive strategy, as well as specialized skills such as goal-tending and the draw, will get any team ready to hit the field.

For young women who want to play at the college level, the concluding chapter on recruiting offers a timeline; testimony from players, parents, and college coaches who have been through the process; and a sample résumé.

Janine Tucker has simplified advanced concepts of womens lacrosse with this book. Although indiacted as "advanced", even new coaches will easily grasp the game and her techniques. She explains many of the nuances of offenses and defenses, although not in particualrly great detail. Bu the diagrams that accommpany her concepts are very good visual explanations. For example, she explains the fast break 3v2, 4v3, and 5v4 styles as well as the slow break offense. On defense, although she spneds only a page an a half on the Hopkins Backer zone, the diagrams let the reader fully comprehend how it works. This is a worthwhile addition to any coach's instruction bookshelf.

I am a high school lacrosse coach and Janine Tucker is the real deal. She is knowledgeable and has built her program into a well respected, class act machine. We are all fortunate she has taken the time to share her wisdom with the rest of us. Everyone in the sport owes her a debt of gratitude for helping grow the game we all love.

Johns Hopkins coach Janine Tucker, whose previous book is the benchmark introduction to girls' youth lacrosse, has now written a comprehensive and detailed reference book for players and coaches at the high school level and above. From advanced individual techniques to team strategies, she has put together a one-stop resource for players and coaches (minor quibble: I would like to have read her approach to fast break defense). Although I have coached high school girls' lacrosse for a number of years, this book will be my primary reference in preparing for next season.

I particularly appreciated the bonuses: entire chapters dedicated in detail to effective practices, offseason conditioning, and the college recruiting process.

Note: I was moved to write this review after reading the first Customer Review, which in my judgment is unfair and completely erroneous. Read my comment to that review for more details.

This is the second book by Coach Tucker that I have read. The other is The Baffled Parent's Guide to Girl's Lacrosse. Both f these books are outstanding.

As both a youth and high school lacrosse coach, I highly recommend this book, along with Janine's first book, Coaching Girls Lacrosse: A Baffled Parents Guide. Both books contain excellent coaching strategies, practice plans and drills. This book also has a comprehensive chapter about college recruiting that is very helpful for the high school athlete who is looking to play in college. I have been coaching for several years, and I still refer back to both books regularly during the lax season.
