Lehigh’s Dominant Defense – Lacrosse All Stars
The Lehigh men’s lacrosse team just might have the best defense in the country right now, and the Mountain Hawks defensive prowess has definitely contributed in a major way to their overall success. Right now, the Lehigh squad is rolling and looking to make 2012 their year. Let’s take a closer look at what they’re doing right on the defensive side of the ball!
Lehigh runs a complicated defense, with a number of different schemes. It obviously takes time to learn the D, and feel comfortable, but it’s not ALL about experience, as Lehigh starts a freshman in goal named Matt Poillon, and their best defender is probably Ty Souders, who is only a sophomore.
So, how has Lehigh gone from giving away close games to winning them? It all stems from a more cohesive team approach this year, especially on the defensive end.
Lehigh going to work in practice
In the past, Lehigh allowed defenders to be put on an island, and relied too heavily on solid one-on-one defending. I recently laid out three things that anyone can do to become a dominant defender, and in years past, many Lehigh players really only hit two of the three aspects of the game.
The team had players with good footwork, and good stick skills, but the third part of the equation, a high lacrosse IQ, was still lacking to a certain degree. Lacking so much that the Mountain Hawks were losing games they felt they should be winning.
To bump that Lacrosse IQ up, the coaches switched things around a bit on defense, and now they are much more “slide and recover” heavy. Check out the video below for a firsthand run down of what the Lehigh men’s lacrosse team has going on…
The Lehigh defense is no longer waiting for a player to get beat and then reacting. Instead, the defense is sliding with purpose, before a teammate is cleanly beat, and their schemes prepare them for this. The defensive player that was “beat” quickly recovers inside, and by the time most teams have cycled the ball to the backside, the whole unit has recovered, and they are ready to stop the next offensive advance.
This switch in defensive approach relies heavily on a high team lacrosse IQ, and it is clearly something that has taken time to build and learn. It seems a though Lehigh laid the foundation in the fall, and made sure that it was strong. From there, new layers of slides have been added, and tweaks and adjustments have been made. The players have fully bought in, the Lehigh defensive unit is now a single cohesive unit. This unit is winning games for its team.
I went through a very similar defensive transformation when I played at Wesleyan, and it was the linchpin to our success. Like Lehigh, we weren’t blessed with 5 or 6 poles who were all beasts – who could take the ball from anyone. We had talented guys who were willing to play team lacrosse to win games. We were willing to swallow our individual pride, and do the dirty work. From watching Lehigh play, you can tell they are in that same boat now as well.
At Wesleyan, we switched from man-to-man defense to an aggressive, doubling zone defense, which at times closely resembles the schemes that Lehigh runs now. People often disregard defensive players in a zone defense, or in Lehigh’s case, a slide and recover defense, because no ONE person really stands out.
However, if Lehigh is leading the nation in goals given up per game, they must be doing something VERY right. If that thing is relying on a well-orchestrated “no name” defense, then I think Head Coach Kevin Cassesse and the Mountain Hawks will be just fine.
So what kind of defense would YOU rather have?
Seven guys on D (including a goalie!) who are all studs but play as individuals? Or seven guys who play team ball and rely on each other to win games? From personal experience, I’ll take the latter.
Sixteen Lacrosse Defense Tips to Shut Down Your Opponent – Toms River Lacrosse Club
By One Stop Lacrosse 07/12/18
How is your defensive game? Do attackers with quick feet blow by you? Are you losing time on the field because you just can not seem to be effective enough in the back?
Defense is tremendously hard. It seems like in any sport you play, whether it’s lacrosse or not, playing defense is a grind.
For example, if you do your job and shut the other team down, that is what is expected of you. Good job. But, if you mess up, your mistakes are highlighted by a scoring opportunity for you opponent or worse, a goal.
Making a mistake on the defensive end is tremendously costly and terribly embarrassing.
We here at “OneStopLacrosse” want to take this opportunity to ELIMINATE your defensive mistakes as much as possible.
If you take the advice from even one of the tips/points we give you here, we are confident that you could immensely transform your defensive game.
Shut down your opponent, protect your goal, give your team the chance to WIN MORE GAMES.
That’s all that really matters right? Of course.
Let’s take a look at the 10 Best “on-field” and “off-field” tips we could come up with.
“OFF THE FIELD” LACROSSE DEFENSE TIPS:
1. GET QUICKER FEET!
Defense is hugely influenced by your ability to respond to the offensive player. Your goal is to keep your offensive player in front of you, as far away from the goal as possible.
This becomes a great deal more difficult with SLOW FEET.
Maybe you can recognize what move your opponent is about to make, but your brain thinks faster than your feet can move, and your opponent is screaming past you with an opportunity at the goal.
Your ability to move your body and stay in the most advantageous position to match the attackers moves will determine to a large extent how successful you will be in doing your job as a defender.
ACTIONABLE TIPS TO GETTING QUICKER FEET –
- Jump Rope More – Jump roping is one of the most effective exercises to improve your coordination, agility and as well explosiveness in your vertical leap.
- Run Stairs – Stair running is a brutal workout. However, finding a killer set of stairs, and knocking out 10 sets on it once a week will improve your quickness greatly.
- Remember to focus on getting each foot to touch each stair. This becomes harder and harder the more tired you get.
- Bonus: Running stairs is a great practice to train your focus too.
- Pay Attention to Your Flexibility – Having greater range of motion with your muscles can greatly influence your ability to make explosive moves on the field.
- Increase your ROM with…
2. BE FITTER THAN THE OFFENSIVE PLAYER
This should not need to be explained all too much. If you are a fitter player, you will have a greater chance to keep up with your opponent EVEN IF YOU MESS UP.
Play for play, playing on the defensive side myself, I feel it takes more energy to play offense than defense. If you are fitter than your match up, your job just became 100% easier.
Important Note! All of these points are connected. If you are fit but have terrible feet, attackers will still get the best of you. If you have great feet but are gasping for air, a few plays into a game and the attacker is making you look foolish
ACTIONABLE STEPS TO GET FITTER:
- Do Sprints! – Yes, we did not say go for a run. Turns out sprints are a safer, and MORE EFFECTIVE form of training for your body.
- Longer distance running breaks down muscle
- Sprints promote muscle growth
- Sprinting connects us back to our ancestors! We were not meant to run long distances!
- Watch what you are eating!
- If you want to perform your best, you need to fuel your body with the best stuff you can get your hands on.
- We are not going to get into detail on nutrition in this article, however, a couple of sites to get you started on performance nutrition if you are interested…
3. STICK SKILLS. STICK SKILLS. STICK SKILLS.
You cannot underestimate how much stick skill a defender needs to have in the back.
The more stick skill you have yourself, the wiser you will be to matching up with attackers who have a high level of stick skill themselves.
Having more skill with your lacrosse stick makes you a more threatening defender. It is not a secret that some of the best takeaway defenders are those who can as well handle the ball well on the other side.
Take the time to get confident with your stick!
ACTIONABLE STEPS TO INCREASING YOUR STICK SKILL
- Play More Wall Ball – Wall ball is one of the most accessible but still the most effective methods for increasing stick skill. Spend some serious time getting comfortable with your throws, catches and scoops. Better yet, get yourself a lacrosse rebounder to put in your backyard.
- Don’t have a good wall at home? As well as a rebounder, check out your own goal for more convenience with your training.
- Make Sure You Are Comfortable With Your Stick – It’s extremely important to feel comfortable with your stick. Your stick is your greatest tool on the field, plain and simple.
4. STUDY THE GAME. STUDY THE PLAYERS
It’s difficult to know exactly how to play good defense in lacrosse if you have never really seen what good defense looks like.
Take every opportunity to get to watch players that are better than you at something. That is the number one way to learn the game. WATCH THE GAME.
ACTIONABLE STEPS TO LEARN THE GAME:
- Watch high level lax games (college, professional)
- Occasionally take some notes from what sort of things you notice these high level players doing on the defensive side of the field.
“ON THE FIELD” LACROSSE DEFENSE TIPS:
Okay, now that we have given you some suggestions for things to work on “off the field”, let’s talk about in the game strategies and techniques that you can put into use “on the field”.
These tips are going to be a bit more “rapid fire” than our “off the field” tips.
Let’s get started.
5. TALK WITH YOUR TEAM! –
Communication is one of the most important aspects of playing good defense. If you team is more aware of what you are doing, what the other team is doing, they will have a better image of the whole field in their head.
Having everyone on the defensive side on the same page can make the difference between a an attacker sneaking in for a goal, or your team smashing an attack and heading the other way.
6. KEEP YOUR STICK ON THE ATTACKER –
This is one of those things that really good defenders do religiously. Keep your stick on your attacker and they feel they have less room to make a play, or make a move themselves. It’s also a terrible nuisance. That in part is your job as a defender. Be annoying
7. GO AFTER GROUND BALLS. ALWAYS! –
When the ball is on the ground during play, this often means things are a bit disorganized. Often times out of this disorganization, the attacking side can win the ground ball and catch the defense out of position.
Winning the ground balls can tremendously alter the course of the game. If you keep your defense from ever feeling out of position, there will be less scoring opportunities for the other side.
Important Note! – Remember when we talked about stick skills? Yeah, this connects right back to that. Work on scooping up ground balls!
8. KEEP YOUR STICK RAISED –
This is another one of those “nuisance” type tactics. By keeping your stick raised, keeping it in passing lanes, you can limit the offensive side’s vision of the field.
Playing on the offensive side of the field and feeling that the field looks small is HORRIFYING.
9. BE AWARE OF YOUR SPACE BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR MAN –
You must be extremely careful with how close you get to the attacker. With the right amount of space between you and the attacker, there is less chance of you buying a dodge, and them making a pass/taking a shot.
If you are too close to your attacker, with one quick move they may leave you behind. We don’t want that happening.
10. ALWAYS KNOW WHERE THE BALL IS –
If your man is off the ball, you must be well aware of both him, and where the ball is.
The object of the game is to get the ball into the net right? If your man does not have the ball he remains to be very important, but not more important than the position of the ball.
Be aware of what is developing elsewhere on the field. You will be of more help to the rest of your defense.
11. NEVER CROSS YOUR FEET ON DEFENSE –
Crossing your feet on defense can cost you. When your feet are crossed you are in a extremely less mobile position.
12. WHEN CLEARING, FOCUS ON EVERY PASS –
Making passes in the back is dicey business. If you make a mistake with the ball in the back, the other team may be coming down your throat.
Stick skills anyone? Making good passes out of the back can be a vital step as well for the first motion of attack.
13. TRY AND LEARN YOUR ATTACKER’S GAME –
Pay attention to all the details of the attacker’s game. Is he right or left hand dominant? Which foot does he like to lead with? Is he in good shape? Is he weak/strong?
All this information you gather can be vital as the game progresses. The more you learn about your opponent, the more likely you will be to know what he is going to do before he does. Trippy.
14. MOVE TO COVER YOUR MAN WHEN THE BALL IS IN THE AIR –
If your man is playing “off the ball” then you should allow him some space. However, if your man is about to receive a pass, you should be to him right as he is catching it.
The more time your attacker has with the ball while you are out of position, the more opportunity he has to make you look foolish.
15. BE CONFIDENT –
It may sound a bit cheesy, but your confidence level plays a huge role in your ability to perform on the field, offense or defense.
If you are lacking confidence, a good attacker will sense that and they will go at you all game long.
Do your best to be confident. Or at least, you can act confident, until you become it.
16. BE PREPARED TO GO INTO “NEXT-PLAY MODE” –
If you do happen to make a mistake and cost your team a goal, don’t sweat it. That stuff happens all the time.
A greater determiner of a good player is how they respond to their failures and mistakes rather than anything else.
Always be prepared to turn your “next-play mode” goggles on, be positive, and get after the next opportunity you have to protect your goal.

Our Top 5 College Drills of 2020 – First Class Lacrosse
As we wrap up 2020, I wanted to make one last blog post in our Coaches Corner. To state the obvious, this has been a tough year on so many levels for so many people, families, teams, businesses, nations & beyond.
However, as I sit here and reflect, there are certainly bright spots. There are things that I have learned about myself as a person, a player and a coach. I have observed the strength of the lacrosse community and seen it come together. From Coach Through Cancel, to Lax Film Study, Coach Munro and so many more members of the community providing content and teaching in different forms, players and coaches who embraced the challenges and kept working found ways to get better and stay connected to the game they love.
I connected with many great coaches, learned new drills and built new relationships. Below are 5 college drills that I picked up in 2020 through friends, peers, and social media which I learned from, will implement, and are solid all around drills.
5. Denver’s 321 Groundball Drill – I loved this for multiple reasons. Competitions, groundball scrapping, and multiple situations played out quickly. Every player getting a shot to finish a rep on a live goalie is a great bonus especially when some players might go through a 2v1 drill and never shoot!
4. Delaware’s 4v3 Keep Away – I received this from Coach Wilkes early quarantine and thought it was spectacular. Using the women’s draw circle as boundaries, 4v3 keep away was great for spacing, sharp stick work, and some tough conditioning for the defenders. It’s a dynamic way to work on stick work & teach the nuances of passing angles and passing lanes for offensive and defensive players!
3. Lafayette’s Dodging Tree – Coach Bieda at Lafayette shared this with us and I was a huge fan. I’ve sometimes struggled to produce high rep redodging drills where players can effectively rep out skills. Providing this “Zig Zag” format to work on pump fakes, look backs, bounces, hesitations and more (see FCL’s Redodge Series) is great for individual skill work for early fall/early preseason. Though it’s on air, it’s great for letting players take a step back and letting their redodges DEVELOP, as I often see players rushing through the move when they are less comfortable. Even D1 players need to build their fundamental base.
2. Michigan’s “Beilein Drill” – Coach Justin Turri sent this to me and it was exciting. They derived this drill from a Michigan hoops practice and I thought the amount of touches and high paced nature of the drill was highly effective. It reminds me of grabbing a rebound, kicking to an outlet and sprinting up the court. The hidden conditioning when you get your players to run HARD is a great way to be effective with practice planning. Throw the timer on, set your lines up, and let the boys and girls RUN!
1. Cornell’s 2v1 Horseshoe Drill – I learned this first with Coach Huntley back on the Atlanta Blaze, but to see Cornell run this in practice was awesome. Playing with speed, recognizing situations, and exploiting 2v1s were awesome to see. I also love how the defenders can be crafty and work on passing lanes and disguising their “commitment” to the ball carrier.

USLM’s 2021 Division I Men’s Preseason Positional Players of the Year
USLM’s 2021 Division I Men’s Preseason Positional Players of the Year
Mon Dec 21 2020 | US Lacrosse | College
J.T. Giles-Harris is the anchor of a Duke defense that was a top-10 unit two years ago.
US Lacrosse Magazine announced Monday its 2021 Division I Men’s Preseason Positional Players of the Year, part of the magazine’s immersive coverage leading to the upcoming spring season.
Five players — an attackman, midfielder, defenseman, specialist and goalie — earned this distinction thanks to their performances during the 2020 season and our expectations for 2021.
Next Monday (Dec. 28), US Lacrosse Magazine will reveal its overall Division I Men’s Preseason Player of the Year.
Preseason Attackman of the Year
Michael Sowers, Duke
Princeton’s inflexible athletic eligibility rules, pandemic or not, forced Sowers’ hand. And it’s coming up all aces for Duke.
The Blue Devils already brought back the entirety of an offense that averaged more than 15 goals per game, led by breakout stars Dyson Williams and Owen Caputo. Joe Robertson, a 100-point scorer in 2019, returns after tearing his ACL. That’s not to mention No. 1 recruit Brennan O’Neill.
Duke has a lot of mouths to feed. In Sowers, it now boasts an elite feeder.
Preseason Midfielder of the Year
Ryan Terefenko, Ohio State
The Buckeyes’ Swiss Army Knife is a three-time USILA All-American and could very well have a Zach Goodrich-like capstone season that can’t be ignored for MacLaughlin Award honors even though he’s technically a short-stick defensive midfielder.
Already Ohio State’s all-time ground balls leader (139), Terefenko also was good for about a point per game during the shortened 2020 campaign. Two years ago, he even scored on a hidden-ball trick shot against Marquette.
Preseason Defenseman of the Year
J.T. Giles-Harris, Duke
The 2019 ACC Defensive Player of the Year, Giles-Harris flirted with playing college football as a post-graduate. He’s got the DNA for it. His brother, Joe, plays linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad.
But there’s unfinished business on the lacrosse field, where Giles-Harris is the anchor of a Duke defense that was a top-10 unit two years ago. The two-time USILA All-American has started every game since he first stepped on campus, leading the Blue Devils in caused turnovers the last two seasons.
Preseason Goalie of the Year
Drake Porter, Syracuse
Porter has led the ACC in save percentage each of the last two years, stopping 57.7 percent of the shots he faced and averaging nearly 13 saves per game during the abbreviated 2020 season. He also emerged as a leader when Nick Mellen went down with an injury, barking out coordinates to the defense and even showing Syracuse’s offensive players how sometimes they tipped off their shots. Porter is set to become the Orange’s first three-year starter in goal since John Galloway.
Preseason Specialist of the Year
TD Ierlan, Yale
A 2019 Tewaaraton finalist and the most decorated faceoff specialist in college lacrosse history, Ierlan owns nearly every meaningful NCAA Division I record for his position. The Albany transfer managed to sneak in a fifth semester at Yale that allowed him to be the only senior from 2020 to retain eligibility for 2021. Pro teams are licking their chops at the prospect of getting him next summer.

Syracuse women’s lacrosse defense, goalie Asa Goldstock shut down Boston College
Syracuse, N.Y. — Fifteen different players have scored 218 goals for the Syracuse women’s lacrosse team this season, and there has been no shortage of names in the headlines.
But some of the team’s top players that often go overlooked make up the Orange defense.
Kerry Defliese, Allyson Trice, Sarah Cooper and Ella Simkins are Syracuse’s silent contributors, but Saturday they were the key in defeating Boston College, 16-7.
If one word could describe the defensive unit for Syracuse this season, it would be inconsistent. Early in the season, it looked like the defense opponents feared in past years, holding teams to an average of just three goals a half. But later in the season, as the Orange entered ACC play, the defense struggled to stop shots from getting to goalie Asa Goldstock.
None of this was the case in Saturday’s win against Boston College. Not only did the Orange defense look good, but it played perhaps its best game all season in Goldstock’s final regular-season game in the Carrier Dome.
Goldstock finished Saturday’s game with nine saves. The fifth-year starter – who has started all but one game since her freshman year – caps her career with a 34-8 record in the Dome through five seasons.
“Asa picked up her game,” Syracuse coach Gary Gait said. “She understood the shooters better and got some more saves, (which gave) opportunities to go back down to the other end and score goals.”
While her performance was impressive, Goldstock was only a small part of Syracuse’s success on Saturday.
A big part of Boston College’s win on Thursday was its ability to run down the shot clock, keeping the ball out of Syracuse sticks for as long as possible. The Orange gave the Eagles a taste of their own medicine, constantly pushing Boston College away from scoring opportunities. Syracuse took up time while it had possession and then, on the other end, the defense forced four shot clock violations against the Eagles.
Syracuse did this while limiting the shooting-space violations that had plagued the group all season. Boston College was awarded eight free-position attempts but wasn’t able to convert any thanks to Syracuse sticks getting in the way.
Defensively, the Orange dominated in every statistical category. Syracuse held Boston College to just 16 shots on goal, and Goldstock’s nine saves were nearly double the combined five between the Eagles’ two goalies. The Orange also caused seven turnovers, scooped up 15 ground balls and cleared the zone 21-of-22 times.
Simkins picked up four of those ground balls, while Cooper was responsible for three. Cooper and Simkins, along with Defliese, each caused two turnovers.
“I thought they played great,” Gait said of his defense’s performance. “The biggest turnaround was their ability to get stops and turnovers. They studied the film, they worked hard and they wanted to make adjustments and improve.”
Emma Tyrrell, who led Syracuse with six goals on Saturday, noted how key the defense was in beating Boston College, emphasizing that, again, there is no one player on this team that wins or loses a game.
“It’s always great when I can see our whole team moving as one, like we moved as a whole today,” Tyrrell said. “It’s just nice to know if they [Boston College] went down on our defense that they would come back and get us the ball. I just felt we owed it to them to be able to finish it like that.”

90,000 Difference in injury rates between girls and boys lacrosse?
At the middle and high school levels, are there differences in injury rates and severity for girls and boys?
If there is a difference, how would you explain it in terms of a real game? Protective equipment, rules, customs or style are potential factors, but others can be included if necessary.
I read several newspaper articles with pictures of boys waving sticks and hitting players.It seems to be called “checking.” We got a glimpse of playing lacrosse for girls and got the impression that they have less protective gear and use less sticks as weapons.
I feel that the very fact that you are asking this question means that you have undertaken zero research work If you have actually watched some of the male and female lacrosse games, please make it (much more) clear. I also think that you are asking too broad a question.Each area you mentioned would be a sensible question in itself if added with notes from previous research. VTC and -1 as a result, but only implied in the most positive way.
@Nij – I’m a dispute. Some people challenge math – I play sports.
I am now removing the negative vote, including some previous research, but leave the VTC too broad and hope you split the aspects into their own questions.
The rules are very different between the two versions of the game. As for security, I don’t know. When I was playing, I felt that I would rather wear a helmet and pads and take hits than hitting a lacrosse ball unprotected …
GScholar “lacrosse injury rate” shows me some numbers that will be useful for analysis. The explanation for the differences is likely to be partly related to regulations and equipment, but some related research suggests that a woman’s mere presence makes multiple types of injury much more likely than men in the same sport and at the same level (mostly from – for soft tissue leg injuries).). I will try to come back to this when the time allows meritorious research.
90,000 Students sued an American school, where they were expelled from the sports team for finding a lighter
Parents of two former school lacrosse team players in Maryland, USA, filed a lawsuit against the school administration. The reason for the appeal to justice was the exclusion of teenagers from the sports team because of the dangerous weapons found in their belongings: a pocket knife and a lighter, writes The Washington Post.
The lawsuit alleges that Talbot County school officials violated the constitutional rights of two students in 2011: to a fair trial and protection from unwarranted searches and arrests. The incident occurred when the team was going on a trip to a competition and boarded a school bus while the players’ belongings were checked for alcohol.
No alcoholic beverages were found in the personal belongings of 17-year-old Graham Davis, but a small pocket knife caught the attention of a school employee.As Davis himself explained, he carries it with him in order to tidy up his club (a lacrosse club is a wooden stick with a net attached to the end to catch the ball). As a result, the teenager’s knife was seized, and the police who arrived on call arrested Davis and took him to the station. After that, the student was expelled from the team.
The same story happened to his teammate, 17-year-old Casey Edsall. A lighter was found in his bag, which the teenager used to secure the broken ropes to the golf club.Edsall was also expelled.
In 2012, the State Board of Education ruled in favor of teenagers, although it noted that knives and lighters were not allowed in school. As a result, the players were returned to the team.
However, the families of schoolchildren intend to prove their case in court. They demand monetary compensation not only for the moral damage caused, but also for the problems that arose when entering college. The mother of one of the teenagers said that due to a bad disciplinary history, the boy could simply not be admitted to the university.
Lacrosse is a team game in which it is required to throw the ball into the opponent’s goal using a device that is something between a club and a net. Very popular in Canada and the USA.
90,000 In memory of Katy Myers
On January 31, 2020, we lost one of the greatest stewards of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®
It’s with great sadness that The Myers-Briggs Company reports the passing of Katharine (“Kathy”) Margaret Downing Myers, at the age of 93.
Katie was born on April 4, 1926. She was raised by her mother, Catherine Jaeger Downing. Her father, Hugh Wagner Downing, served as an Army Air Force pilot in the United States Army Signal Corps. He died in a plane crash the same year his daughter was born.
As a child, Katie moved with her mother to Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, where she made lifelong friends (and where her mother-in-law Isabelle Briggs Myers previously graduated from Swarthmore College). At 12, she met Peter Myers and his parents, Isabelle and Clarence (“Chief”) Myers.
Peter became her close friend, and then her second husband (he passed away in 2018). His parents became a second family for Katie. Isabelle awakened in her an unquenchable interest in understanding human development and in improving people’s perception of themselves and those around them.
While at Vassar College, Katie was a fellow student, played bandy, and was on the US lacrosse team. In 1946, at the age of 20, she graduated from college with a degree in economics.
She immediately applied to the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where the dean in charge of student admissions told her that a business education “is of no use to a woman who will still marry and have children.” Such an opinion did not become an obstacle for her. At Wharton, she completed her graduate school in organizational development and went to work as a human resources specialist for management consulting firm Edward N. Hay and Associates in Philadelphia.She subsequently earned her MA in Humanities Development from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania.
Raising four children, she used her inexhaustible energy to serve on the commissions of the League of Women Voters and the Swarthmore School Council, then worked as a high school teacher and later as a school psychologist.
Katie found her true professional vocation when she dedicated herself to developing the ethics of using the Myers Briggs Type Indicato (MBTI®).She worked closely with Isabelle Myers in her later years to enhance the scientific credibility of MBTI and complete Isabelle’s seminal book on MBTI, Everyone Has Their Own Gift. In addition, she helped develop the first accurate certification programs for consultants, who then responsibly applied MBTI, and provided many training courses.
After Isabelle’s death in 1980, Cathy and Peter Myers became co-owners of the copyright for MBTI and took this responsibility very seriously.Katie became the first president of the Association for Psychological Type (APT). She has provided ongoing support to the public organization The Center for Applications of Psychological Type (CAPT). She has written numerous articles and contributed to a number of books on the application of psychological types, including Navigating Midlife: Using Typology as a Guide.
Led by Peter and Katy (in close collaboration with Myers-Briggs, which publishes the MBTI assessment), MBTI has become the tool most used to assess personality around the world – by ordinary people, religious and educational institutions, community organizations and companies. for personal and team development.
In their final years, Katy and Peter formed The Myers & Briggs Foundation, an organization that funds research on psychometrics and psychological-type application outcomes. In her eighties, Katie continued to be involved in social justice advocacy and devoted herself entirely to philanthropic work, in particular at the school in Chester, Pennsylvania, and in her children’s choir.
She often quoted the last lines from her favorite book “ Middlemarch ” by George Eliot about how “the well-being of our world depends not only on historical, but also on everyday deeds; and if yours and mine are not as bad as they could be, we owe a lot to these people who lived next to us quietly and honestly … “
Katie herself lived a bright, eventful and very fruitful life.Her four children, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, as well as close friends, colleagues and everyone who knew her – everyone deeply loves and remembers Katie.
This is an edited excerpt from the obituary written by the Kathy Myers family.

Northfield Mount Hermon School in USA | Tuition fees, admission conditions
Northfield Mount Hermon School is a boarding school for students in grades 9-12. It was formed by the merger of the Northfield Seminary for Young Ladies (1879) and the Mount Hermon School for Boys (1881).Today boys and girls study here together. Over the years, actress Uma Thurman, Burger King founder James McLamore, 2016 Olympic rowing champion Tessa Gobbo and singer Natalie Cole studied here.
NMH is a member of the elite Eight Schools Association (ESA), which includes such prestigious schools as Phillips Academy Andover, Phillips Academy Exeter, Deerfield School, St. Paul’s School, Hotchkiss School, Lawrenceville School, Choate Rosemary Hall.
655 students study at NMH, more than 80% of whom live in a boarding house.Every fifth student is a foreigner. The guys come here from 60 countries of the world! Classes are small – an average of 11 people. Each student can create an ideal schedule for themselves by choosing the most interesting from a huge list of disciplines – the school offers 208 academic courses. Of these, 28 are taught in advanced AP or Higher Courses.
NMH is a special school. Instead of the usual 50 minutes, lessons here are 80, like in college. This allows you to analyze each topic in more detail, devote more time to discussions and practical exercises.As a result, courses, which are traditionally given a year, students take a semester. It prepares kids for the pace of college and develops time management skills. Also NMH operates the Collaboration 12 system. It implies that each student has the ongoing support of twelve adults: teachers, coaches, tutors, supervisors and “parents” from the dormitory. The student can always turn to these people for help and advice.
At NMH, students not only gnaw the granite of science, but also develop creatively.After classes, the guys fly to clubs and sections. They host shows on the school radio station, sing in a choir and jazz bands, learn to photograph, debate, discuss feminist ideas, take care of campus ecology, and tell each other about the traditions and characteristics of their countries. Many clubs gather in the newly renovated arts center, which has state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, dance studios, rehearsal rooms, music classes, 14 grand pianos, an electronic music lab, art workshops and a video studio.
The school has its own farm. Here, the guys learn to take care of horses, pick strawberries, and those who wish can even milk a cow and make ice cream from fresh milk. This is a unique opportunity to get away from textbooks and the Internet, do manual labor and get closer to wildlife.
Students play sports in the evenings and on weekends. Field hockey, alpine skiing, sailing, golf, rugby, cross-country skiing, athletics, cross-country, water polo, baseball, swimming, basketball, ice hockey, softball, diving, running, wrestling, football, tennis and table tennis, volleyball, lacrosse, rafting, rock climbing, paintball, mountain biking – there is a sport here even for the most discerning student.The campus has everything you need for fruitful training: two stadiums, 12 tennis courts, 8 jogging tracks, an ice rink, a 6-lane pool, a boat house on the Connecticut River, two gymnasiums, 9 basketball, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey courts and softball.
The campus covers over 70 hectares.
