Create Space to Find the Open Shot!

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

John Danowski, Duke University Head Lacrosse Coach, reinforces the need for players to learn to shoot on the run. The technique that he teaches is designed to create separation between the shooter and the defender, in order to get off a shot.

Shooting on the Run

How it Works: The drill begins with players approximately 5-7 yards above GLE. A player will pick up a ball and take only a few steps before jumping off their inside foot and shooting. Some might call the movement a “hitch” that is used to create separation from the defender.

Drill Tips: In this drill, continue to reinforce good shooting techniques that include getting the hands back and kissing the shoulder. Note that the shooters are aiming for the back third of the goal (or inside the far pipe), because a goalie would be protecting the near pipe.

Conditioning Exercise to Improve Speed and Body Positioning!

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.

Improve Your Transition Game with John Danowski’s Clearing Exercises

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Get a glimpse of John Danowski’s clearing system in this segment. The 2x NCAA Championship coach provides you with drills that focus on basics in a live clearing situation. Although appearing to be very basic, these drills teach numerous skills that can lead to winning at any level.

Live Clearing Exercises

Player Movements: In the first part, the defense is breaking out or “banana cutting” to receive a pass. In the attack segment of this drill, the ball side attackman learns the skill of V cutting and pulling the defenseman AWAY from the area which the ball is coming toward. Move the X attack to the ball, as opposed to standing still and waiting for a pass. A quick pass attacking the backside completes the segment.

Drill Essentials:  Ensure plenty of lacrosse balls are available for younger and lower skilled players. Using repetitions, muscle memory is created and lacrosse IQ is increased.

Drill Tips: Keys to observe are the goalies counting 3 seconds, the way the long sticks break out, watching the ball the whole way and the backpedal at the restraining line to “front” the ball. Also note the tempo of the goalie’s passes, which are hard low arc passes.

Check out an additional clip from the Championship Productions’ DVD “Mastering the Clearing Game.” If you’re interested in more Transition drills, click here.
