Learn a Great Strength & Conditioning Exercise for Lacrosse!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Lehigh University Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Eric Markovcy, uses a ladder drill that is designed to keep the players’ feet under them. In addition, it is important that the players lead with the proper foot when changing direction. Coach Markovcy also makes the drill more “game specific” by having the players do the ladder drill based upon his voice commands and also upon his hand signals.

Ladder Drill Concept: In/In/Out/Out

Drill Summary: In the ladder drill he stresses hips low and chest high and proud. With the chest up he also wants the eyes up so that the players have the vision to see everything. The players go through the drill with their sticks in their hands. On his mark, the player steps in with both feet and then out with both feet. The players will go both right and left.

Teaching Point: Progression to the voice or hand signals should only be done once mastery of the initial ladder drill is achieved.

Ricky Fried, Georgetown University Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach, provides you with a drill that emphasizes defensive footwork. This drill can also serve as a conditioning drill for your team.

Defensive Footwork

Drill Summary: The athletes form three lines. The first player in each line faces the coach and begins to backpedal in a defensive stance. As the coach points right or left, the players shuffle in that direction. On the whistle, all three players turn and sprint to the opposite sideline.
