Coach Virtual Ed Sessions

Live, Interactive Training

Coaches often are extremely busy and often have questions about specific topics. USA Lacrosse understands and has developed a new resource. These new learning opportunities are not part of the certification pathways but offer additional support to our member coaches. 

These coach trainings are live and interactive sessions via Zoom and led by USA Lacrosse coach trainers or college coaches. Each session will focus on a specific topic and will offer a Q&A period. These trainings are not part of the USAL certified coach pathways but offer additional educational support to our member coaches.

Season Package

Looking for consistent education sessions all season long? The season package provides access to all sessions from January-March 2024 (12 currently scheduled) for just $65.

Examples of possible sessions would be “How to design a practice”, “How to clear the ball more effectively”, “How to run a zone defense”, or “How to work with goalies”.

We are actively seeking topic ideas and new presenters/trainers as we build out this program.
