Team First! Working Together for Best Results
by Lorne Smith

While good players may excel at individual skills like shooting, dodging, or 1v1 play, only the great players fully understand the team skills which make up the majority of the game. In this course you will learn a team based system of offense and defense which stresses ball movement, teamwork, and unselfishness.  You will discover how when you work together as a team, you can create amazing scoring opportunities on offense, and have success defending against much better individual players, in both all even and transition situations.

Growing up in Baltimore, Lorne has not missed a lacrosse season since he started at age six. During a particularly successful stretch which included high school, college, and Team USA U-19, Lorne did not lose his last game of the season for five years resulting in six straight championships. During that time he was coached by two of the top minds in the game today — John Tucker (Gilman) and Bill Tierney (Princeton).

In 2013 he was recognized for his on-field achievements and continued involvement in the game by being inducted into the US Lacrosse Baltimore Chapter Hall of Fame.

Moving to San Francisco in 1999 has offered the opportunity to stay involved with lacrosse on a number of levels including playing professionally, coaching a team at the collegiate level, directing youth camps and clinics, and offering free coaches clinics. Lorne currently resides in the Bay Area where he works for Warrior and Brine Sports, and continues to help in the development of West Coast lacrosse.

Lorne Smith (PU) channels his inner Bill Tierney and explains fundamental key concepts of how to play Team Lacrosse from 1-on-1 to 6-on-6 Offence & Defence, You can see how Princeton were so successful all those years. Lorne Smith communicates clearly and effectively on how simple the game can be and yet still successful if all the Team are on the same page and understand what they are trying to do. Reminds me very much of the great Coach Belichick's mantra "Do Your Job!". Everyone has a role and they must know what it is and do it to the best of their abilities. Excellent series of videos 10/10
