North America's oldest sport has experienced a renaissance in recent years. The success of professional lacrosse in centers like Detroit, Pittsburgh & Boston has spawned leagues & programs in communities across the United States. Despite this interest, there is no skills-development book for lacrosse on the market. Jim Hinkson, a former coach of the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League, has written the definitive lacrosse skills book to fill this need. LACROSSE FUNDAMENTALS examines in expert detail every aspect of individual play, including techniques for passing, catching, cradling & physical play. In addition the book outlines different equipment styles & offers expert coaching for situations that arise within a game such as loose ball strategies & goaltending. Written with precision & including over 50 explanatory photographs & diagrams, LACROSSE FUNDAMENTALS is ideal for coaches, parents, players & fans. It is applicable to both field & box lacrosse. "Knowing Jim Hinkson as a player, as a teacher, & as a coach, & knowing his dedication to the sport of lacrosse, I wholeheartedly recommend this book."--Mike Keenan, Former Coach & General Manger, Chicago Blackhawks.
