When Fast Breaks happen in games, the ball doesn't always come in where we want it to like it does in practice. Here are three different Reverse Fast Breaks we see college teams use for this situation.
This is a great Man-Up Play we saw during the Iroquois vs USA game at the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. The commentators said it was a "classic Box Lacrosse play," so we thought we better cover it.
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!
We saw one of the top NCAA DI teams using this great combination drill on the first day of practice last year. It's great for working on ground balls, game situations, Man-Up/Man-Down, everything!
Slow Breaks happen almost as often as Fast Breaks in any lacrosse game. Use this simple practice drill to teach all your players how to move the ball and score those great transition goals that make lacrosse so exciting!
Now that all the camps and tournaments are pretty much over for the summer and all our players are headed back to school soon, we want to look back at the drills and games our players requested over and over this summer!
