Kids’ Lacrosse Solutions:  Diagnosing and Solving Problems for Elementary School Boys’ Lacrosse

Many young players struggle with basic lacrosse skills.

Scores of them quit in frustration.

Having someone steer them through the struggle can accelerate their mastery of lacrosse skills and hold their interest. When parents or coaches diagnose a problem and fix it, they not only help the child have more fun, but also show him that an obstacle need not become a barrier.

Adults learn to solve players’ problems by trial and error or after years of coaching. But the players can’t wait that long. Where can someone new to lacrosse quickly find the fixes the players need? The answer is Kids’ Lacrosse Solutions.

There is a separate chapter for the typical problems of each basic lacrosse skill: ground balls, passing, catching, and stick handling. Starting with a table of contents that lists each problem, the book pinpoints possible reasons for the problem and then delivers solutions.

Are his passes too high? See Chapter 4.

Does his stick just push a ground ball along? Chapter 3 has the solution.

When he tries to catch, does the ball bounce out of his pocket? Chapter 5 will tell you why and how to fix it.

Are his passes too low? Chapter 4 shows you the myriad reasons for this problem and a solution for each one.

Every solution in this book has fixed a problem for an elementary school player.

If your player has a problem learning basic lacrosse skills, you need this book.

Kids’ Lacrosse Solutions is now available at Amazon.

Hi Tom I have been reading your blog posts and really appreciate them. As a father of twin 6 year old lacrosse players I have found them both informative and helpful.

Have you ever thought of bundling your books and selling them as a package?
Although I am not a coach I would love to pick up the Drills and the Lacrosse solutions one (which I can’t find on Amazon) Moot point how ever as Amazon doesn’t ship to Canada anyway 🙁
Keep up the great work

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your kind words.

I may bundle my Kids’ Lacrosse books together after I finish writing the ones I have planned.

Is there a subject that you’d like more information on?

You can get a print copy of Kids’ Lacrosse Drills on

You can get Kids’ Lacrosse Drills and Kids’ Lacrosse Solutions at in the Kindle store. You don’t need a Kindle to obtain and read Kindle books-just an Internet connection. Amazon has free software to read Kindle books on PC’s and many other devices.

6 years old is a great age to be playing lacrosse. I’ve coached several sets of twins at that age.
