Work on a Variety of Offensive Skills with This Exercise!

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

Assistant Coach Mark Petrone of The Haverford School, has his team work for plays initiating from behind the cage. The Island Curl incorporates dodging, change of direction, quick release, and a mid-range shot.

Island Curl

How it Works: The drill begins with a passer (with a pile of balls) 20 yards above the cage and the others at X. A player at X with the ball initiates a dodge, runs up to the five and five (5 yds outside and 5 yds above the goal), rolls and takes a quick shot. He then rolls outside at the ten and ten, receives a pass and takes an outside shot at the goal.

Drill Tips: It is a great drill for Attackmen, but is also good for Middies for conditioning and shooting in tight space. The players standing at X need to be paying attention to shots that are off the mark.

Excellent Warm Up Drill to Improve Your Lacrosse Player’s Shooting

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

Assistant Coach Mark Petrone of The Haverford School puts the team through a warm up drill. This exercise is intended to strengthen shooting fundamentals and shooting with constant motion. This warm-up isn’t very strenuous on the players, but allows them to achieve a high number of shots in a short period of time.

Warm Up Drill: Fake High, Shoot Low

Player Movements: Split the shooters into two lines, each five yards above GLE and 10 yards off the pipes. The first player passes to the other line and that player runs to the island in front of the cage, fakes high and then shoots low to a corner. The player that made the first pass is now the receiver and takes his turn shooting.

Drill Essentials: The players should call for the ball, make the fake high and snap the ball down hard.

Drill Tips: The key to this drill is for the players to be in constant motion and to keep both lines moving at a quick pace.
