Maximize Your Lacrosse Abilities at Any Position on the Field!

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Rob Rose, provides you with a ‘Lateral Hurdle Hop Drill’ which is great for developing reaction and quickness in your players. This will develop your players ability to make a change of direction to help them dodge a defender or to be a more effective defender.

6” Lateral Hurdle Hop Drill

Drill Setup:

This drill utilizes a 6” hurdle. If you don’t have one, the player could use their stick as the hurdle. It is best to have the hurdle perpendicular to a line on the field in order to give the player lateral orientation.

Athlete Movements:

The goal is to perform as many two-foot jumps as possible in 10 seconds.

Teaching Points:

  • Make sure that both feet push off and touch equally.
