Writing a Book, and I Need Your Help

New postby McMonkey on Mon Jun 18, 2018 1:14 pm

Hey, folks,

I have been asked to write a booklet for youth coaches and coaches new to lacrosse.
The audience would be a parents who will coach who might be new to the game or rusty.

Thus far, the Table of Contents look like this

Introduction: The Traits of the Teaching Coach
Practice Coaching
1. How to Teach Individual Stick Skills
2. How to Teach Triangular-Group Stick Skills
3. How to Teach Individual Dodging Skills
4. How to Teach Individual Defensive Skills
5. How to Teach Team Offense
6. How to Teach Team Defense
7. How to Run Modified Sideline-to-Sideline Scrimmages
Game Coaching
1. How to Coach a Game with a Developmental Mindset
a. Helping Parents Understand the Game
b. How to Provide Support to Your Fellow Coaches

Again, I am not focusing on hundreds of shooting drills or gb drills etc.

I am trying to create an easy to follow booklet that will provide super-detailed descriptions about the basic skills that all programs would love to create.

If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate your thoughts. Feel free to post or email me at laxteacher@yahoo.com
