Editorial Reviews

Review

"Don Zimmerman is not only a great coach but a great teacher. Men’s Lacrosse demonstrates his unique understanding of the game’s big picture as well as the methods necessary for becoming an outstanding player.”

Bill Tierney-- Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach University of Denver

"Don Zimmerman is one of the truly great coaches of our time. In an era filled with flash and no substance, Coach Zimmerman makes it cool to focus on the fundamentals of the game. Men's Lacrosse is a must-read for players and coaches alike. You won't be disappointed!"

Dave Pietramala-- Head Men's Lacrosse Coach Johns Hopkins University

About the Author

Don Zimmerman has over 39 years of experience in coaching lacrosse and has been a Division I college head coach for over 27 years. Coach Zimmerman’s career has taken him to Princeton University, the University of North Carolina, Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University Maryland, and the University of Maryland at Baltimore County (UMBC), a position he has held since 1994.

Zimmerman was instrumental in winning NCAA national championships at North Carolina (1981 and 1982) and Johns Hopkins (1984, 1985, and 1987). He led the UMBC Retrievers to four consecutive NCAA Division I tournament appearances from 2006 to 2009, a feat accomplished for the first time in the school’s Division I lacrosse history.

Zimmerman is considered one of the preeminent teachers of the game and has taught lacrosse on four continents: North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. In 2002 he was honored with induction into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the United States Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Zimmerman was named America East Conference Coach of the Year by his colleagues in both 2008 and 2009 and was the 2008 Coach of the Year in LaxPower men’s lacrosse Fan Awards. He achieved career win 200 in 2010 and is 10th among active coaches with 202 victories in 24 campaigns.

Zimmerman lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

Peter England was a member of Coach Zimmerman’s staff at John Hopkins University. Since 1991 he has been an advanced team scout for the Johns Hopkins lacrosse program, working with coaches Tony Seaman (1991-1998), John Haus (1999-2000), and Dave Pietramala (2001-present). England lives in Glen Burnie, Maryland.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Quint Kessenich on September 3, 2013
Format: Paperback
Men's Lacrosse by Don Zimmerman is a tremendous resource for players ages 10-20 and their coaches or parents who want to learn the skills and techniques to become better players. The book is extremely thorough in its approach - dissecting each position and its basic requirements. The attention to detail and instruction is superb. Coach Zimmerman breaks down skills in simple language, while discussing the details of the technique. The photos are helpful for proper learning. The book also teaches basic team strategies and how to incorporate them into your daily practices and game usage. I highly recommend this book for lacrosse players who want to improve their game and master the basics.

Probably one of my favorite lax books out there right now. Less fundamentals and "basic" knowledge with more in depth tips/skills/drills/etc. Love it
