This is a classic pregame warm-up drill we've seen Box Lacrosse coaches use all over the world. It's perfect for warming up your players' feet and sticks and giving your goalie plenty of shots, all at the same time!
Two-Line Shooting Drills are a great way to give your players tons of reps working on their moves, shooting in different game situations, plus they work on passing and catching!
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!
We saw the USA U-19 Team using this great shooting drill before their scrimmage at Johns Hopkins last weekend to get all their players passing, catching and shooting right before game time!
We are on the field and in the stands every day watching what different high school and college coaches are doing with their teams to get ready for game time. Here are 8 ways you can upgrade your pregame warm-ups to get your players feet and sticks moving and maximize their touches on the ball.
We saw one of the top teams in college lacrosse using this rapid-fire shooting drill in their pregame warm-ups last season. Do this drill with your players any day at practice to work on dodging, passing, and finishing in tight on the Crease!
We ran this great transition drill at our first practice of the season. The kids loved running full-field sprints back and forth for 15 minutes since we were playing a "game" of Fast Breaks instead of running a "drill". Tons of reps and tons of fun with this one.
We saw a youth team from Texas run this same Man-Up Play four or five times successfully in one game at a tournament in California last weekend. Try this simple play in practice and games to get easy looks right in front of the goal.
The 4-on-3 Fast Break happens multiple times in every lacrosse game, especially with youth and beginners. No matter what level you coach, it's critical you teach all your offensive and defensive players to recognize and respond to this common situation properly. Make sure your team understands how to work the numbers advantage so they can score!
