React and Shoot Quickly in Front of the Net!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Ann Elliott, head women’s coach at the University of Colorado, uses this shooting drill to teach her players to make a quick decision when shooting in front of the goal. In this drill, players will not only learn to shoot quicker, but also with more accuracy.

Shooting Drill

Drill Summary: A goalie begins in the net, the drilling player begins five yards in front of the net, and six players space out evenly with one ball each, 10 yards in front of the net. On the coach’s whistle, the first player with a ball feeds the drilling player, who must quickly face the net and attempt to sneak a ball past the goalie. Continue down the line, feeding balls to the drilling player until they’ve had six attempts. Set a time limit (coach Elliott recommends about 35 seconds) to prevent players from taking too long. Keep track of how many shots each player makes, then rotate.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Quick decisions.
2) Clean receptions.
3) Accurate shots.
4) Fake out the goalie.

Work on a Variety of Lacrosse Skills in One Drill!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Director of Team ONE lacrosse and former head coach of the Chicago Machine, John Combs, teaches his youth players a variety of skills at one time in the All-In-One drill. Players will learn to field ground balls, pass the ball, make J-turns and make over-the-shoulder passes.

All-In-One Drill

Drill Summary: This is a three player drill. Begin with two players on the sideline with one player facing them, about 15 yards away. To begin, one player on the sideline rolls a ball out and the other sideline player must run out and scoop it up. After retrieving the ball, the player passes it to the third person in the drill. That player must then quickly return the ball to the person who just passed it to them, then run back toward the sideline before receiving a pass over their shoulder. Finally, the receiver passes back to the player on the sideline, who passes back to the thrower and the whole process is repeated.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Accurate throws.
2) Scooping ability.
3) Good cuts and turns.
4) Call out names on passes.
