Improve Ball Movement with the “Speed Passing Drill”

In this segment, U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach & Georgetown University Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach, Ricky Fried, focuses on the importance of quick ball movement in a simple but effective “Speed Passing Drill.” Players work through the drill in pairs as they pass the ball quickly back and forth to each other. For coaches at any level, this drill is a good way to evaluate your players’ mechanics and provide instant feedback.
