“Need One Got One” was a game developed to teach young players the importance of communication and teamwork in the sport of lacrosse. Half of the players and Coaches have balls in their stick. Players with a ball are yelling “Got One” meaning they have a ball, others are yelling “Need One” meaning they need a ball. Players flip/drop their ball into the stick of someone without a ball.

This game encourages the players to be loud and to share the ball with friends. The Library Version of “Need One Got One” emphasizes non verbal communication skills by whispering and exaggerating the motion of waving your stick to show that you are open and need the ball.

    this is a great training idea.  I coach youth lax and trying to get the kids to communicate during the game when I can’t get them to shut up during water break is very frustrating.  Excellent!
