Develop Speed and Agility in Your Lacrosse Players!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Rob Rose of True Athlete Performance shares the tools you need to better evaluate your players’ performance with tests that isolate specific abilities. This drill is a way to measure the agility and speed of players. It can be used especially with offensive players to develop their ability to move quickly and change direction in order to create space or dodge a defender.

Roundabout Drill

How it Works: This drill utilizes four cones; two for the start, one five yards up and five yards over, and a fourth, five yards over and five yards back, so that you end with a triangle shape. The athlete begins at the two cones. The timing begins upon the athletes’ first forward movement. They sprint to and around the middle cone, sprint to and around the far cone, from an inside-out direction. They sprint back around the top-middle cone and then finish by running back between the two starting line cones.

Drill Tips: For testing an athlete’s time, only one set up would be needed. But for training purposes, you could run the drill with several setups at the same time so that your entire team could have multiple reps in a short amount of time.

Conditioning Exercise to Improve Speed and Body Positioning!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

The Duke University Men’s Lacrosse coaching staff runs their players through a ‘Turn & Sprint Drill.’ This exercise focuses on training players to open up their hips to a direction behind them and “fire off” a line out of a static position. Players will become more confident in their skills to stay with or slide to their opponent.

Turn & Sprint Drill

This involves setting up cones 10 yards apart in a line that is also 10 yards infield from a sideline. As the player is positioned on the sideline between two of the cones, a coach will communicate to the player to go left or right.
