As the cradle of women’s lacrosse, our teams can be spotted training, whatever the weather, on the scenic St Leonards playing fields, and Tuesday, 6 February was no exception. This was, however, a training session with a twist thanks to the coaching expertise of Dave Simpson, who is Head Coach of the Scotland Women’s National squad.
Coach Dave splits his time between coaching at a high school in San Francisco and spending a week each month in Scotland. We were delighted to be able to welcome him to St Leonards during his February stay in the UK.
The top coach had the Year 4, 5, 10 and senior girls practising cradling techniques and performing drills to perfect their skills on the field.
With a mix of ages and abilities on the pitch, he took the teams back to basics, getting everyone moving and warmed up before covering a range of top tips for sporting success.
A big thank you to Coach Dave for coming to St Leonards to share his skills and inspire our players!
