If you can teach a player to properly handle an unsettled transition situation playing 6 on 6 will appear much easier to them.

Lacrosse transition drills are designed to help you and your teammates move down the field in a quick and effective manner.   80% of the goals in a game are scored in transition.  However, as a coach you have no control over this situation once the game begins.  This why transition is the most vital thing to practice.

Transition is lacrosse is one of those things that are easier said then done.  Everybody knows it’s value in the game and can tell you exactly what should be happening, however over and over again that knowledge does not always translate into games.   Teams should explore as many transition drills in practice as possible and to mix up the transition drill providing different situations while utilizing the same skill set.
