Work on Cradling Techniques and Build Your Field Awareness!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Winningest Coach in NCAA Tournament History, Kelly Amonte Hiller, has players perform a partner passing drill while under pressure. This drill involves two players partner passing while two additional players are standing behind them acting as the opponent. The goal here is for players to build their cradling and awareness skills while throwing or receiving a pass.

Stick Protection Passing Drill

Athlete Movement: The drill starts with partner passing. As the ball is received, a player begins to protect the ball while the opponent behind them attempts to check their stick. After a few seconds of protecting, the ball carrier will throw the ball back to their partner and they repeat the process.

Drill Benefits: This is a great drill not only to get players to be aware of the area around them, but it also builds a player’s confidence when being challenged by an aggressive defensive unit.

In this youth drill Glen Ridge (NJ) High School Assistant Coach, Paul Schwern, teaches players to scoop through ground balls with their heads up in order to survey the field.  In a game, this will help your players avoid the opponent and dodge any hits. Players will be able to look and find their teammates much easier when using this drill.

Variation Groundballs

Overview: Coach rolls a ground ball to an approaching player and holds a specific number of fingers up in the air. Once they scoop up the ball they will call out how many fingers coach is holding up.

Player Movements: The players must scoop up the ball and must then bring their head up.

Drill Essentials: The players should have their head up as soon as they get the groundball.

Drill Tips: It is important to cradle shoulder to shoulder.
