Let loose your inner-tech geek at the 2011 US Lacrosse National Convention. US Lacrosse will showcase its various new technologies available to US Lacrosse members that help simplify and streamline your program's needs.

Get a hands-on tutorial with all of US Lacrosse's new web-based platforms and ask one-on-one questions with US Lacrosse staff members. Check out what US Lacrosse members have access to:

USLaxTeams.com

USLaxTeams.com is an exclusive lacrosse league management system developed by US Lacrosse in conjunction with LeagueAthletics.com that gives program administrators and coaches a suite of online tools to better manage and communicate with their organization and teams.

US Lacrosse Playbook

The US Lacrosse Playbook is a free email platform available to US Lacrosse program administrators and coaches. Your team or league's email is enhanced through patented technology which dynamically adds compelling graphics, content, information and special offers to your message. Teams and leagues can even use this system as a fundraising tool to generate money from ads. Learn more about this system here.

USL Mobile Coach

USL Mobile Coach provides lacrosse coaches a web-based platform to design and share day-to-day practice plans. Coaches can outline an entire year's practice plan and then edit and add components throughout the season.

Mobile Coach includes both men's and women's lacrosse drills and segments them based on skill level and drill type. Drills include focus on: conditioning, stick work, game situations and even field space adjustments.

"In a survey conducted by the Coaching Education Program, 85 percent of the coaches are working parents who can only spend 10 minutes of their time planning practices for their teams," Chris Snyder, manager of coaches education and training at US Lacrosse, said in the October issue of Lacrosse Magazine. "The new mobile technology allows coaches to easily access, organize and share US Lacrosse drills and video with players and assistant coaches on the field. This is a ground-breaking US Lacrosse member benefit for coaches at all levels."

The mobile app for iPhone and Android is slated to hit iTunes by the end November and will only be accessible for download by US Lacrosse members. Learn how to use this app on your phone or online at the USL Tech Gadgets booth at the 2011 US Lacrosse National Convention.
