Work on a Variety of Offensive Skills with This Exercise!

Assistant Coach Mark Petrone of The Haverford School, has his team work for plays initiating from behind the cage. The Island Curl incorporates dodging, change of direction, quick release, and a mid-range shot.

Island Curl

How it Works: The drill begins with a passer (with a pile of balls) 20 yards above the cage and the others at X. A player at X with the ball initiates a dodge, runs up to the five and five (5 yds outside and 5 yds above the goal), rolls and takes a quick shot. He then rolls outside at the ten and ten, receives a pass and takes an outside shot at the goal.

Drill Tips: It is a great drill for Attackmen, but is also good for Middies for conditioning and shooting in tight space. The players standing at X need to be paying attention to shots that are off the mark.
