We love letting our players scrimmage at practice, but we make sure the Offense earns the ball first! Use this simple drill to work on critical pieces like Face-Offs and Clearing before your team gets to go to the goal, just like in a game!
This is another great drill we got from one of the coaches at MLL open tryouts. It's a great way to practice getting the ball through "X" during 5-on-4 Slow Breaks so your players understand this other common game situation.
Clearing against the 3-3 Deep Zone Ride can give high school and even college teams lots of trouble. Try this simple play we see college teams use to get the ball down the sideline away from your own goal to your offense!
Use this simple long passing drill to practice those critical Clearing passes with your Defenders that move the ball down the field to your offense so your team gets tons of scoring opportunities!
This is a simple but genius variation on a standard Clearing play that every coach should know and every team should be able to use to get the ball down the field away from your own goal into the sticks of your offense.
We love Defense, but it can be very difficult to teach younger and beginning players how to play good Individual AND Team Defense. Here are a few easy drills for Defense you can use with your Team!
This Dodging and Defense Drill is a quick and easy way to teach all your players good body defense and how to initiate contact when they dodge! All your players can go at the same time, so everybody gets hard work!
This is a great drill you can use any day at practice to teach your players to understand and react to common numbers-advantage game situations like Fast Breaks, Slow Breaks, Man-Up/Man-Down, all in the same drill!
This is a great practice drill we adapted from something we saw at training camp for one of the NLL teams last year. We added extra players to use it outdoors to improve stick skills, game situations, and conditioning!
This is a great drill we use about once a week at practice to create tons of Man-Up and Man-Down situations. Plus we get some good work on keeping possession and conditioning at the same time!
