Improve Communication and Movement with this Three Team Drill

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Member of the US Women’s Lacrosse National team coaching staff, Amy Bokker, has her players demonstrate a 3v3v3 Draw Drill. This is a great drill for lacrosse players of all levels to develop their offensive and defensive skills. Your offense will improve on maintaining possession while the defense will learn to work together to close down space.

3v3v3 Draw Drill

Player Movements: Begin the drill with 3 teams (Pinnie Dark/Light/No Pinnie or 3 different colors if you have that option). Dark and Light will begin by taking the draw with No Pinnie close by in the circle (each team will rotate to take the draw control). Each team will have 2 teammates outside the draw circle ready to get the draw and maintain possession for either 5 passes or 1 minute within the parameters. The two teams that do not get draw possession will work together and immediately double the ball.

Drill Essentials: The attack focus on the drill is to keep your feet moving to maintain position and moving to space. While the defensive focus is to double team the ball as well as her teammates, and maintain good communication to quickly identify where to double team.

Drill Tips: Although this drill has a collegiate focus with only 2 teammates on the draw circle this makes for a great progression opportunity for youth/high school level athletes. After each team gets 3 to 5 draw control attempts you can progress to a 4v4v4 and 5v5v5 environment.
